I have some background in city planning, and I've never heard of anyone advocating for putting these businesses in residential districts. Well, of course not, because then the district wouldn't be residential. So nobody has to worry about whether to purchase a home there.

Many communities have wrestled with the question of just how to regulate so-called "adult" businesses which are operating within the limits of the law. I may find something like body shops and used car lots just as aesthetically objectionable as a Hustler store, but I realize they have a right to exist until and unless they're outlawed. I think most citizens would prefer to have them effectively contained to an area of a couple blocks than scattered among other commercial establishments. Even the customers of the businesses. Or especially the customers.

I am talking about your (in that posting quoted) reply to what I said, in the light of what I said. Granted your comment seemed a bit vague.

As this thread continues I'd like to remind everybody this isn't the great debates forum, try avoiding general topics like morality unless it relates directly to the topic. If you really have to fight, fight over something local

Many a youthful miscreant must've sauntered into the library under watchful parental eyes, then snuck out to do studying of another kind next door.

I have never been in that Hustler, so I don't know what their offerings are. But I will say when I come down I-75 from Dayton, that is the exit I take with Ohio-63 across to 741 and down to Mason. From the looks of the parking lot it is not exactly a beehive of activity.
I think the former Strip Club (Bristol's as of most recent) at the exit was purchased by Hustler Hollywood to retain its sexually oriented business zoning permit. If the economy had been doing better and the rise of the internet had not come so rapidly, a Hustler-operated strip club would probably be there right now.....

Along with the prisons, giant flea-markets with knock-off goods, sleazy hotels, holy-roller church, the LB drug-dealing ranch, and the soon-to-be racino at the exit, Monroe is a sleaze-hole to begin with. (and that's coming from a former resident of the city)
