BENTONVILLE -- A Bentonville man asked the city to pay his two sons $20,000 and to fire the library director for including what he called "pornography" in the Bentonville Public Library collection.

"The Whole Lesbian Sex Book" by Felice Newman was removed from the library shelf after Earl Adams of Bentonville complained it is "patently offensive and lacks any artistic, literary or scientific value," according to a letter he wrote and faxed Feb. 16 to Mayor Bob McCaslin.

Adams said his 14- and 16-year-old sons, Kyle and Ryan, looked at the book while the 14-year-old was browsing for material on military academies. He requested the city pay him $10,000 per child, the maximum allowed under the Arkansas obscenity law.

"My sons were greatly disturbed by viewing this material and this matter has caused many sleepless nights in our house," he said in another e-mail to McCaslin earlier in February.

Story. Those poor boys. How will they ever recover?

Edit: Youtube even has an educational video here which I refuse to link to.

I'm sure his sons were very deeply disturbed by that.....and probably thought about how bothered they were by it during their sleepless nights.

Right on Moma. Bet when they hit the sheets, those poor, little, inocent boys could feel the sleeplessly coming on. Very hard and quick. Probably bothering the Dad about as much as them. Maybe more.

Ok if this book is about hot chic part time lesbians then it's totally going to cause me insomnia but if it's about rosie o type lesbians then it's time for a book burning.

I always wondered when I was back in High Skool what they did in that Lesbian Club.

Looks like the boys will have to start using their Dad's old Playboys again.

they were looking for info on military academies? not the sharpest tools in the shed or maybe theyre lesbians traped in male bodies.

I'm pretty sure they were "looking" for "info" on "military academies." Yeaahh. So what were the the little unspoiled angels doing in the health or erotica section, eh, young military scholars?

I was wondering why all my previous research on military acadamies always led me to lesbian books...now this finally explains it!

Sleepless nights?

Probably because they were up all night wacking off to that. If only my library carried such fantastic titles. Does the father want them to rope off the dirty books, like in the old video stores?

The "educational video" is probably going to get me fired now.

You would think that father would be proud that his boys were looking at girls. Most men would do a tarzan grunt and chest beating on this one.

If they had been looking at "The whole gay man's sex book" then he might have a reason to be upset.

I can't quit looking at that book cover. It's got me wound up tighter than a 5 string banjo.

I heard the father would not have filed the complaint but the centerfold pullout of Rosie pushed him over the edge!
