Around this time of year, it’s not uncommon to see Nativity scenes around town and in local shops for the holidays. Recently, a sex shop in Toledo decided to get into the spirit with a nontraditional approach- the Virgin Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus were painted on dildos. Héctor Valdivielso, the owner of Non Sit Peccatum commissioned the dolls, and though the display was “popular” at first, according to The Local- Spain, people eventually became upset with it.
“A man with his wife ordered me to remove the offending scene and said that if I didn’t he would remove it himself,” Valdivielso wrote on Facebook. The shop was then vandalized, and people started to boycott his store.
He removed the post. In its place, he put a poster with a poll, asking customers and people passing by the store if he should bring back the painted dildos, and 78% said yes. He said that the scene would be brought back.
