Sexual Tension on the rise in Alabama

Over the past few years I have made several references to Alabama outlawing sex toys. Here’s my response to Michael Silence’s post on Alabama sex toys today:

These laws are dangerous.

Setting all the privacy issues aside, these laws destroy opportunity to make sex toys safe. A devices intended to come in contact with a human can be required to be made of medical grade materials and FDA approved. By outlawing the sale of sex toys, these business can buy inferior products, stamp a “for novelty purposes only” sticker on it, and go right on selling them. Do we outlaw novelty items next? Every magic store, Stuckeys, Cracker Barrel and, possibly, toy store would have to close shop.

Who suffers? The consumer. Why? Because some prude who wouldn’t buy one in the first place stuck their nose in your bedroom.

“That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves.” –Thomas Jefferson
