Rabat - A seller of sex toys has been sentenced to eight months in prison and fined €900 by a Moroccan court for infringing public decency, local newspapers reported on Monday.

The vendor, who was not named, was sentenced on Thursday for "importing, holding and exhibiting licentious products and the publication of prints and photos that are against morals and public decencies," said the daily L'Economiste.

The court also found against the accused for having obtained a health ministry authorisation "after having provided false information" on its business that is based in Casablanca, the economic heart of the kingdom.

The seller had a licence for the sale of "food products, and used it to import erotic objects," said the newspaper.

The vendor had apparently come up with the idea of selling such products "after research on the internet in order to find a solution to his sexual problems".

    Ridiculous. Frankly, technology shouldn't be regarded as a threat.

      What a strange creepy outlook on life you have. So what is immoral about what people do in the privacy of their own home? What has it to do with you if people actually engage in sexual activities for fun and mutual enjoyment that is not just for procreation? Of course this report is the usual case of religion imposing it ugly, intolerant and inhuman world view on the rest of society.
