ORLANDO, Florida (WKMG) -- An Orlando business sign along Orange Blossom Trail has some parents upset. It reads, "May is National Masturbation Month." 

The marquee at the Fairvilla, located at 1740 North Orange Blossom Trail, changes twice a week.

Nikki Mier, store manager, said they use it to promote events, advertise for the holidays and grab attention.

"You have to advertise your business," Mier said.

However, Les Gebow, a parent who lives nearby said the sign isn't appropriate for the children who are too young to understand but old enough to read.

Mier argued the word "masturbation" is not a bad word and shouldn't be taboo for parents.

She said the sign will change Tuesday morning. She said she's not sure what the new one will be.
