Residents of Sheepshead Bay are up in arms over the salacious window displays at new sex shop KamaSutra. Having already toned down the dildo-filled windows after complaints were made to the town's Assemblyman, the store still isn't being welcomed by parents who frequent Sheepshead Bay Road with their children. (The visible penis-themed toys and lingerie, however, don't seem to be an issue for teenage boys.) Still, clothing stores bumping up against a sex shop and families clutching onto kids' hands as they walk past doesn't seem so bad—to us, it just sounds like a stroll through Times Square.
