India’s First Legal Sex Shop Shuttered By Panchayat

Goa: A little over a month after its Valentine’s Day opening, Goa’s only brick-and-mortar sexual wellness shop has had to down its shutters. Located in a marketplace in Calangute, a popular tourist destination, Kama Gizmos was shut down by the panchayat citing the lack of a trade license, with its sarpanch objecting to “such activities”.

While the panchayat claimed the shop could not be allowed to run without the license, Kama Gizmos partner Prawin Ganeshan said the issues with the local authorities run deeper.

Calangute Sarpanch Dinesh Simepuruskar said: “We had received oral complaints from many people about the shop and they did not have a trade license. So we have shut it down.” The panchayat took action against the shop on Wednesday. Its signage was also removed.

“They were selling sex-related things and we had received complaints from both men and women about it. People had also posted on social media and WhatsApp about the shop. Since it was in a gully everyone had not seen it before,” said Simepuruskar. “We don’t want to allow such activities.”

The Kama Gizmos store in Goa was a joint venture between KamaKart, that runs a chain of ten sexual wellness stores in South India, and Mumbai-based Gizmoswala.
