Mom Shocked to See Sex Toy Company Booth at Movie Theater

Taking your kids to the movie theater is pretty run-of-the-mill -- especially when fun movies geared towards kids like "Inside Out" are in theaters.

As a mother told WFTX, she was taking her 10-year-old daughter and her 11-year-old niece to see that flick, but instead she saw:

"A display promoting lingerie and sex toys," a WFTX reporter said.

"I don't understand how any management or any theater would think that that would be appropriate. ... with lingerie and toys and lotions and oils and all those types of things, with balloons and stuff, so it was eye catching, especially for children," concerned mother Jessica Meyer told WFTX.

It happened at the Prado Stadium 12 Theatre in Bonita Springs, Florida -- and it was meant to promote "Magic Mike XXL."

Pure Romance provides sex toy parties for women in their own homes, and the website even gives tips on stripteasing -- so it's very much an adult company.

The theatre did email WFTX a statement, saying, Pure Romance wasn't there for long and nothing else is planned with the company. Meyer says it should have been planned better:

"Maybe if they did it in the theatre that the movie was playing in or outside the theatre the movie was playing in, not where children would see it," Meyer said.
