Air Force & Army Pull Adult Mags
Army and Air Force Exchange Services are removing pornographic magazines from their shelves and making way for more money-making products. Over the last 15 years, adult magazine sales at AAFE's have declined 86%. Although people once turned to magazine stands, experts say that's changing and moving online. Store officials also point to the fact that adult magazines needed special handling. They had to be placed at the top of shelves and out of the reach of kids, their covers had to be hidden, and some even had to be encased in a plastic covering. Officials say often times people wouldnt put them back properly, which meant employees had to keep an eye on stands. Although recently military leaders have come under fire for high-profile sexual assault cases, officials insist it was strictly a business decision. Regardless of taking the magazines off shelves, service members can still buy them off base or just browse the web. Close to 900 other magazines will also be removed because of declining sales. Popular titles such as People and Mens Health will remain.
