Boots, The Porn Chemist’s

Boots, the Porn Chemist’s



And it came to pass that your humble correspondent, afflicted by cough and catarrh, walked to what is for most the standard purveyor of medicinal products in the land: Boot’s.

Randomly searching for my chosen product, I see a big section called “Sexual Wellbeing”. It’s not in a corner, or where it will only be noticed by those who already know what they want. No, it’s truly, as they say, “in your face”.

A small selection of vibrators is on display.

I don’t think I am particularly innocent, but frankly it was a shock. It was the same as if I had discovered that Waitrose sells porn in the DVD section. Please understand Boot’s in this country is the standard choice, where every mother would go with her little daughter without thinking twice. As I write, I can’t even tell you the name of one competitor, at least for medicines you don’t find at the drugstore.

We are in a bad shape. We truly are.

Dear British readers, can you please tell me more about the alternatives to Boot’s in the London area, or about online pharmacies who offer a good service. Actually, this could be good to see whether here are any Christian pharmacies or chemists around, on or offline.

Frankly, this is another of those occasions where I must think “I never thought I’d see the day”, and the day has arrived and stares me in the face like the big sign, “Sexual Wellbeing”.

I will complain with Boot’s after I have a credible alternative, so they know the client has gone for good, and I will complain around.

  1. It’s on television, too. I can’t see the point of having a telly anymore.

  2. Never had dis problem wiv smaller pharmacies, like Lloyds Pharmacy.

  3. Wow, I’m shocked too, and saddened. Things seem to be moving downward at a breakneck pace, don’t they?

    • It’s a vicious circle. A stupid electorate votes for stupid politicians who pander to their perversion. This in turn generates more stupidity, and this stupidity then infects all aspects of social life.

      I wish I woke up in the morning to discover Francisco Franco has taken over.

  4. What about Lloyds pharmacy?

    @Jewel…That was the reason we got rid of our TV. Can’t say I’ve missed it. Like Mundabor we only use ours for DVD’s for the kids.

    • Thanks, never heard of them. Probably seen them, but never really noticed.

      I’ll look on the Internet where they are and what they do.

  5. I forgot to add, it doesn’t really matter where you go. For instance, EVERY chemist sells the morning after pill. So you’re either going to have to do without, or give your money to people who peddle abortifacients. It’s a horrible situation.

    I don’t mean to ruin your day.

    Great site by the way.

  6. Truly repellent. Of course, by peddling these repellent things they openly sanction the mortal sin of masturbation. St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle!

  7. Almost the same thing here in the States. While vibrators are not sold, every drugstore now has shelves dedicated to a large variety of condoms, lubricants and other related items. How things have changed in a generation. I recall while attending college in the early ’80s condoms were kept “behind the counter” and had to be requested. Usually the salesclerk was a women who was close to your grandmother’s age. Having to ask for condoms from a woman who could be your grandmother quickly killed any thoughts (real or imagined) of sexual activity. Shame and embarrassment were a powerful moral enforcer at one time.
