It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to display for sale, or otherwise, in a place frequented by persons under the age of eighteen (18), and in such a position as to be readily accessible to such persons, any magazine, book, newspaper, tabloid, picture or any other article which depicts sadistic or masochistic acts, contains lewd and lascivious pictures or descriptions or contains materials otherwise designed to appeal primarily to prurient, violent, sadistic or masochistic interests or which contains classified advertising designed to create acquaintanceships between persons of the opposite sex. It is the intent of this ordinance to specifically prohibit the display of “sun bathing” magazines, tabloid-type newspapers containing, primarily, accounts of crime and violence and magazines containing numerous photographs or drawings of nude persons. The foregoing enumeration is not intended to exclude from the ambit of this ordinance other materials designed to appeal to prurient, violent, sadistic or masochistic interests.
