The St. Stephens Episcopal School in Bradenton, Florida is advertising sex toys to kids using school sponsored technology and databases.
The St. Stephens logo appears on numerous sex toys ads, and some even offer up live links to the students for further information…
St. Stephens is directing children through its school library to so called “scholastic” databases that are streaming a myriad of advertisements, some in full color, with graphic descriptions, and some with embedded live links for kids to get even more information or make purchases…
St. Stephens Episcopal School is also streaming ads for adult books, BDSM materials…
and advertisements for Hard Core Porn sites, such as Nympho Ninjas, (above), urging students to “Do Some Homework… Read, Watch and Play…”
How Does St. Stephens Promote Sex Ads to Students?
Using School sponsored technology. Through the school library. St. Stephens is one of many Episcopal schools around the country that have subscribed to the popular, EBSCO “scholastic ” databases.
EBSCO collaborates with several mega-publishing clients, like Hearst Publishing, Conde Nast, and others, who enjoy highly profitable relationships with their Sex Toy Advertising Partners, such as Dame, Babeland, Good Vibrations and numerous others.
Hearst Partners with EBSCO Information Services to Expand the Marketplace for their Sex Toy Advertisers
Brilliant marketing executives (or some might call them evil geniuses…) have figured out how to expand their marketing block into America’s schools. Most of the EBSCO databases are locked down behind passwords that only students are issued, not their parents.
Why are Adult Magazines Streaming into K-12 “Homework” Databases?
In fact, EBSCO school databases, which are advertised as “scholastic” and age appropriate are notorious for streaming adult, “pop culture” magazines into schools. One of EBSCO’s biggest publishing partners, Hearst, streams Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Esquire, Marie Claire, and other pop magazines which prolifically advertise for the 15 billion dollar Sex Toy Industry.
Conde Nast streams Glamour, Allure and the infamous, Teen Vogue (remember the “How to Have Anal Sex” scandal from last summer?), to name a few. Others include, Lesbian News, and the Canadian, Rogers Media, which stream a myriad of advertisements for their Sex Toy advertising partners directly into EBSCO school databases.
EBSO values these relationships and is on record stating their “non-censorship” commitment to their valuable publishing clients. Hearst and others stream whatever they want into EBSCO school products. EBSCO sells the databases to the schools. The schools direct their students to use them for “research”. The ads and other obscene articles are positioned to float to the top of almost any search our group has tried and they cannot be filtered because they are proprietary.
The 15 billion dollar Sex Toy Industry has grown exponentially over the past few years and will apparently stop at nothing, including the marketing of adult products to school children under the guise of age-appropriate scholastic products.
EBSCO appears to be fully complicit in this assault on school children, this family owned company having positioned itself to become part and parcel of the 95 billion dollar sex industry – and, despite being named to the Dirty Dozen list by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation http://endsexualexploitation.org/articles/pornography-schools-ebsco/ almost a full year ago, EBSCO continues to falsely advertise their school products as “age appropriate” and “relevant”…
Parents, and many unsuspecting teachers also, are lulled into trusting their school administrators and librarians. They have been told to send kids to the “scholastic databases” to work on class projects.
St. Stephens and other schools around the country appear to be leaving parents in the dark about child safety, while placing profit and politics ahead of accountability to the communities they serve.
