Tesco has been forced to remove a pole-dancing kit from the toys and games section of its website after it was accused of "destroying children's innocence".
The Tesco Direct site advertises the kit with the words, "Unleash the sex kitten inside...simply extend the Peekaboo pole inside the tube, slip on the sexy tunes and away you go!
"Soon you'll be flaunting it to the world and earning a fortune in Peekaboo Dance Dollars".
The £49.97 kit comprises a chrome pole extendible to 8ft 6ins, a 'sexy dance garter' and a DVD demonstrating suggestive dance moves.
The kit, condemned as 'extremely dangerous' by family campaigners yesterday, was discovered by mother of two Karen Gallimore who was searching for Christmas gifts for her two daughters, Laura 10, and Sarah, 11.
Mrs Gallimore, 33, of Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, said yesterday: "I'm no prude, but any children can go on there and see it. It's just not on."
Dr Adrian Rogers, of family campaigning group Family Focus said yesterday that the kit would "destroy children's lives".

Og á síðu sem selur þetta má lesa þetta hér:
It's up there with sexy lingerie, a dirty weekend and chocolates - namely you buy it as a gift for the lady in your life yet you probably enjoy it more than she does! It would be like buying your girlfriend a 'Greatest Premier League Goals' DVD to watch together, only in this case she'll actually like it!
For the ladies buying it, imagine buying your fella tickets to see his favourite team in the FA Cup Final. Well he'll like this more... Lots more... Imagine the look of sheer delight on his face should he get home one night to find you ready to give him his very own private pole dance!
Please note: Read instructions before use. This is not a professional pole and is designed for beginner moves and fun use only. It is not designed for swinging round although you can hang on it (weight up to 14 stones) if erected correctly, excusing the pun! Returns: We cannot accept returns on this item if the pole has been used or the garter and money bag unsealed.
Vegna þess að með stönginni fylgja 100 ,,peekaboo-pund" og sokkaband til að troða þeim í. Brilljant.
Í fréttinni er eftirfarandi tekið fram:
Tesco last night denied the pole dancing kit was sexually oriented and said it was clearly marked for "adult use".
Vegna þess að mynd af hálfnakinni konu að handleika sjálfa sig og súluna er á engan máta kynferðisleg, og það er fullkomlega eðlilegt að vörur, sem eru á engan máta kynferðislegar, séu auglýstar með orðunum ,,Aðeins fyrir fullorðna."
Jájá.. Ég dreg það samt sem áður í efa að þetta geti eyðilagt líf þeirra barna sem koma nálægt því. Stelpurnar á fréttamyndinni virðast vera við góða heilsu, þótt foreldrar þeirra mættu kannske við því að slappa aðeins af.
