By: Straight Dope

By ERIC WILLIAMS | Cape Cod Times

The business of pleasure has turned painful for an estranged Outer Cape couple who are battling over control of two Commercial Street sex toy shops.

Maxine Kroll and Devioune Mayim-Daviau, former lovers who lived together in North Truro until earlier this year, are enmeshed in a bruising civil lawsuit regarding the future of Toys of Eros and Wild Hearts, according to court documents filed in Barnstable Superior Court.

The stores, located within several blocks of each other along Commercial Street, sell a variety of provocative clothing, adult toys…

Does Provincetown make more money from gays or straights?

Published: Mon August 07, 2006
By: Straight Dope

Sure, this question seems to have an obvious answer but I wonder if anyone can provide numbers about the revenue split between gay travelers and straight travelers.

I am posing this question because of all the anti-straight Provincetown news articles floating around.

There are more gay owned homes and businesses in Provincetown than those owned by straights (thought I doubt there was ever a questionnaire about anyone’s sexual preferences and ownership) so I am not asking about tax revenue.

Architectural review of the new Provincetown Art Museum

By Robert Campbell | Boston Globe

In the case of the new Provincetown Art Museum, which opened on Commercial Street in May, the problem was how to put a big thing in a small place.

How, in the pleasantly tiny streets of this much-loved town, do you shoehorn in a 20,000-square-foot building without letting it dominate?

Twenty thousand square feet is more than a third the area of a football field. Provincetown, by contrast, is something of a toy town. Its streets and buildings are not only small, they feel unplanned. Provincetown looks random and…

For Rent signs on Commercial Street in Provincetown

Cape Cod Voice | By Seth Rolbein

Provincetown’s Commercial Street enters the 2006 season with more uncertainty than usual. For those who see the street not so much as an outrageous outpost but more as an economic vanguard, a harbinger of where the broader Cape economy is headed, that’s cause for general concern.

Long-time observers of Commercial Street in Provincetown are nearly unanimous:

“No question,” says Candace Collins Boden, executive…
