I just read it for the articles

When is porn not porn? When Shell Oil says it's not:

Shell Oil Co. has determined "Playboy" and "Penthouse" no longer are pornography, but instead are "adult sophisticates," according to a company statement.

The issue arose when the Florida Family Association contacted Shell about the sale of such explicit magazines at convenience stores owned by Circle K in southeastern parts of the United States.

David Caton, executive director of the pro-family organization, said his group asked Shell to require Shell-branded Circle K Stores to stop selling the pornography, as it has done in the past with other retailers.

"Adult sophisticates." Yeah, that's the ticket! Is that what you're going to tell the Mrs when she finds this stuff?
