Out­rage at porn film in ‘ Dad Gifts’ on Ama­zon

Solihull News - - NEWS -

OUTRAGED par­ents have blasted Ama­zon for sell­ing hard­core porn films in the ‘ Dad Gifts’ cat­e­gory.

Shop­pers brows­ing the web­site for Christ­mas presents were shocked when they stum­bled upon the sex DVD, called Dad is F****** g my Girl­friend.

The £ 16.95 DVD ap­pears next to an ad­vert which reads “New Re­lease only on Ama­zon”.

It is listed along­side dozens of other adult movies with sim­i­lar ti­tles.

On­line shop­pers and par­ents have blasted the re­tail gi­ant and de­manded the DVD – which is of­fered with free de­liv­ery – is re­moved.

Dad- of- two James Lock, 46, of Soli­hull, said: “I was look­ing for gift ideas for my old man when I came across this porn DVD. I was ut­terly shocked.

“In amongst the usual stuff like BBQ uten­sils, car man­u­als, gar­den­ing gift sets and funny T- shirts which say ‘ Grumpy old git’ or ‘ No 1 dad’ nov­elty mugs was this sex film.

“I only typed in ‘ Dad Gifts’ into the search menu. I wasn’t ex­pect­ing some­thing so ex­plicit to turn up.

“My two kids go on Ama­zon a lot to look for toys and ideas for presents to write on their let­ter to Fa­ther Christ­mas. I hate to think what would have hap­pened if they’d found this DVD them­selves.

“Any­thing porno­graphic needs to be re­moved im­me­di­ately.

“There are places peo­ple can go to buy this sort of filth, you wouldn’t come across this kind of thing in Tesco so why is it ok to sell on Ama- zon?” So­cial me­dia users have also crit­i­cised Ama­zon and called for greater con­trols on the prod­ucts it sells.

Writ­ing on Face­book, Gina Mor­ris said: “Com­pletely gob­s­macked that one of the world’s big­gest re­tail­ers sells porn so bla­tantly. Hor­ri­fied it is so easy to find. How many chil­dren will be search­ing for gifts be­fore Christ­mas and ac­ci­den­tally come across this DVD?”

Ama­zon con­firmed it had now re­moved the porn DVD from the ‘ Dad Gifts’ sec­tion of their web­site.

An Ama­zon spokesper­son said: “All sell­ers must fol­low our sell­ing guide­lines and those who don’t will be sub­ject to ac­tion in­clud­ing po­ten­tial re­moval of their ac­count.

“The prod­uct in ques­tion is no longer avail­able.”
