Sweet Home Alabama Likens Sex Toys to Prostitution


Boing Boing reports some news that bummed us out. The 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals just upheld a new Alabama statute that bans commercial distribution of sex toys, comparing such stimulation to prostitution.

It is "unlawful for any person to knowingly distribute any obscene material or any device designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs," says the statute.

We hang our heads for any state stripped of the right to experience Lelo, more a high culture bearer than detractor by any measure. Boing Boing also points out that while the gentle vibrator has gone into exile, guns are still A-OK. What a consolation!

Alabama, the show me your hands state.

Cause, you know, we don't want to chance it. Those hands might be stimulating something down below.

Next up, an amendment limiting guys to no more than 3 shakes at the urinal, cause any more than that might be construed as masturbation.

And lastly, what if my chick gets off straddling aN automatic rifle? Is that OK?

Pat, if the tickles make tingles, I wouldn't risk it.

Then again, maybe this is what they want. Those sick bastards.
