Bentonville Man Files Suit After Sons Find Book on Lesbian Sex in City's Library

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A Bentonville man is seeking $20,000 from the city after his two teenage sons found a book on lesbian sex on a library bookshelf.

Earl Adams says his sons were ``greatly disturbed'' after finding the book, titled ``The Whole Lesbian Sex Book.'' Adams says the book caused ``many sleepless nights in our house.''

Adams wants the city to pay $10,000 to each of his sons under Arkansas' obscenity laws. However, the city's attorney dismisses Adams' claim as baseless.

The library's advisory board voted earlier this month to remove the book from circulation. Board member George Spence says he found the book crude, but say it could be replaced with one taking a ``more sensitive, more clinical approach.''
