Missouri Says No to Sex-Themed Billboards

Missouri, not a state one would associate with rampant sexual imagery, has banned billboards for companies whose business model is based on nudity or pornography. The law is aimed at reducing prostitution, crime and juvenile delinquency. Seems there's a proliferation of nudie billboards in the state.

"We have the right to drive the highways of this state without children being assaulted by these images," said Governor Bob Holden who signed the bill into law Thursday morning.

Under the law, the only kind of billboard these types of business can now put up is one that lists basic business info in text and one warning minors to keep out. It's likely this billboard wouldn't make the cut. Thanks to Adrants reader Charley Brough for the tip.
