Pittsylvania shuts down store that sold sex toys

DANVILLE, Va. (AP) -- A store in Pittsylvania County has been shut down for selling sex toys, bondage gear and pornographic DVDs.

The store's co-owner, Trish Post, tells the Danville Register & Bee ( ) that she will appeal the county's closure order to the county Board of Zoning Appeals.

County code compliance director Odie Shelton says the county's zoning ordinance allows novelty stores. But stores that sell sex toys and pornography aren't allowed.

Post says she stopped selling pornographic DVDS last month after she learned that it could be illegal in the county.

She says she's willing to sell only lingerie and stop selling prohibited items until her year-long lease on the building expires.
