Sears now sells S-M bondage outfits

Ever since its merger with Kmart in 2005, the fortunes of the family store Sears, Roebuck, & Co. have declined, its income plunging by 84%. Desperate for sales, the 120-year-old American family store has gone pornographic.
It began in August 2010, when Sears started selling soft porn on its website. The next year, in May 2011, Sears online “upgraded” to selling hard-core pornographic DVDs and music with unimaginatively-titled but sexually-explicit fare as “Lesbian Sistas,” “Hot Mamas Like Young Chicks,” “Hot and Exotic,” and “Snatched –  Curse of the Pink Panties”.
American Family Association (AFA) sent out an alert, after which Sears was flooded with calls of complaint. The store issued an apology and withdrew the porno DVDs and music from its inventory — but only temporarily.
AFA soon discovered that Sears online was selling men’s and women’s “I ♥ Butt Plugs” t-shirts for $13.99 to $15.99 each. A butt plug is a sex toy, shorter than a dildo, that’s designed to be inserted in the anus and rectum. It must have a flanged end to prevent the plug from being lost inside the rectum.
searsbuttplugshirtSo AFA protested again, and once again Sears backed off and pulled the butt plug t-shirts from the company’s website on March 6, 2012.
But that, too, turned out to be temporary. For in July 2012, the AFA discovered that not only had Sears resumed selling sexually explicit products, the “family store” had added bestiality to its wares. Sears Online was selling how-to manuals on bestiality and zoophilia with such titles as Dearest Pet, On Bestiality and Bestiality and Zoophilia: Sexual Relations with Animals, containing graphic descriptions, drawings and sketches.
Once again the AFA protested. Once again, Sears appeared to back off. But the “family store” is at its old tricks again — this time “branching out” to S-M or sadomasochism.

Someone discovered that Sears Online was offering a leather bondage outfit for men called “Elegant Moments Elegant Moment L9663 men piece adjustable harness set includes leather harness arm“:

Sears1Once again, there were protests.

Once again, Sears feigned backing off by withdrawing the L9663 S-M leather harness from its website, saying that the product “is no longer available.”

Once again,  however, Sears is being deceptive. For on the same webpage where it announces that the men’s L9663 leather harness is no longer available, the “family store” offers a number of “related items” that include another men’s S-M leather harness, L9989; a women’s S-M leather and chain outfit, L9118; as well as nurse outfits for fetishists and an array of skimpy women’s underwear.

Here’s a screenshot I took of the “related items,” showing the time (4:22 PM) and date (8/11/2013) when I took it, in the event Sears pulls those items as well.

By now, it is clear that calling Sears or signing petitions is a complete waste of our time and energy.

My recommendation is to just STOP buying from Sears.

The only thing I own that was purchased from Sears is a hand-held vacuum cleaner. When it conks out, I will replace it with a vacuum cleaner from another manufacturer and another store.

They will be sorry, God won’t like that. That’s why our country is in so much trouble now! Greed and sin!

I stopped shopping at sears years ago when their affermative action progran caused them to hire room tempature I.Q. employees. They need to be discarded on the junk heap of retail. They along with JC Penny are a disgrace.

Boycott Sears. It is no longer a family store. I will never buy there again.

Have not purchased from there in a long time. Now this? I will now NEVER go into one again! Most of their stuff is crappy anyway and now the store’s website gratifies it!

Guess I’ll be looking for another source for tools – especially after the shabby way they treated Paula Deen.

Dave I always get my tools from Sears. I Probably got a couple of grand worth of tools and tool boxes in my garage. Cornwell and Snap-On tools are too damn expensive! but like you I guess it’s time for an alternative.

Will,
Yeah, as most tools are now pretty much made in China – and that includes Husky.
I do have some Husky tools, but I got them when they were still made here.
Chinese sockets pretty much suck, as the precision just isn’t there.
Sad.

I have some stray Husky screwdrivers around even scraped the barrel with some Great Dane tools from Advance Autoparts (Which usually last all of ten minutes). Still fiending for some ratcheting wrenches one day.

Don’t think I’ll be able to even look at my Sears RoboGrips again.

LOL!
And besides my Dremel (which is the best thing since beer and pretzels), RoboGrips are among my fave tools.

Excellent historically detailed report! Thank you, as I had not heard yet that Sears had jumped into the Luciferian Sewer Pit along with Penneys & some others.
Microwaves & a washer/dryer were the only things I bought from Sears in years past as they supposedly were good for appliances.
I think you’re right re campaigns to stop them from promoting debauchery (calling, letters, etc.) being a time-waster. Evil is as Evil does. Let them go bankrupt when nobody shops there anymore. They brought it on themselves.

This is an awesome idea! It worked out great for JC Penny too! Oh wait no it didn’t. This is for those gracing this site for the first time so I will save you the trouble of typing about how high-strung we are over this. So I will break it down for you. If people is into this kind of thing that’s their biz. No one here cares. What is troubling is Sears has always been a family outlet. From the 4th of July to Christmas Sears has always been about the family and showing this is just not smart.… Read more »

You have GOT to be kidding!!!
Every institution is becoming corrupt in this country!
I never would have believed it if someone told me this 20 years ago!
Thank you Dr. Eowyn, for sounding the alarm.

Used to love Sears but it began to lose it’s appeal about 20 years ago or so…….and continued on downhill ever since……yes, just like Penney’s.

I will give Sears credit in one area, and that is they will replace a Craftsman tool without flinching.
I have split quite a few sockets in my life, and even bent a ratchet with a cheater bar once, but they gave me new ones – no questions asked.
And I have an old 6 hp Craftsman lawn mower that would probably hack its way through a bamboo patch without bogging down.

To change the subject, when your vacuum finally gives out, I recommend trading it in at a locally-owned vacuum cleaner store for a Miehle or other vacuum not made in China.

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this interesting post. Clearly, Sears is absolutely desperate.

I would like to suggest the possibility that Sears is not really jumping into the sex-toy game, but that Sears is doing a bad job filtering its online sales service, in which it is providing the service and Sears name for a fee to online retailers. Sears is a good store and is experiencing hiccups as it tries to survive this increasingly challenging market. My theory.

Oh Dr E, I’m SO sorry you had to go through explaining that sex toy. Honest, dear, next time save yourself the “grody-ness” of it all and whoever doesn’t know what such-n-such is, can Google it. You should NOT have to even dip a toe into such perverted filth. You deal w/ enough perversion and filth in politics and every day life, sex toys aren’t something you need to have to picture or describe. *shudder* YUCK!!!!

Seeing this again, I’m reminded that the last thing I bought from Sears was a tool (No!!! Not that kind of tool!!!) called RoboGrip. It works well, but not enough to justify supporting this horrible company. After this, unless they repent, I will never allow another of my dollars to go to Sears again.
