Yep, I would ask you to go outside where children couldn't glimpse it. I would be much more concerned with my child getting a glimpse of anything illustrated from Marquise De Sade's works than with a glimpse of bronzed, plasticized adults going at it in modern porn. Seeing as how he lustily describes the torture and rape of children - I'm not sure why that shouldn't be considered child porn actually. It's not about getting the law involved for me...it's just about common decency - if Starbucks were an adult only place (in 'Idiocracy' Starbucks is THE place to go for handjobs lol) then it wouldn't even cross my mind to ask you to refrain.

A lot of sex? Jeanine makes a well-reasoned argument, but it prompts the question: If my reading material offends YOU, why should I leave? You are a biped I assume. Use your legs and remove your kind self from the establishment. Funny how you assume I must accommodate your mores. Just a thought.

That's where you're wrong. It doesn't offend ME...I agree that adults don't have the "right" to never be offended. My point is that when my child is 7 years old, I don't want to explain to him what fisting is because of some selfish a-hole at Starbucks. Appropriate time and place for everything ya know? Parents can't shield their child from everything - I don't expect to raise mine in a bubble - but mature content should be viewed in private or at mature places. I don't see the problem with this.
