“The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to hear a challenge to Alabama’s ban on the sale of sex toys, ending a nine-year legal battle and sending a warning to store owners to clean off their shelves.”

Full story here. See also. Text of dumbass Eleventh Circuit opinion that will not be reviewed here. Text of completely stupid Alabama law here. Video of Molly Ivins weighing in on similarly ridiculous Texas law here. Online source of vibrating “personal massagers” that people in Alabama desiring something “designed to relieve tension and sooth sore aching muscles” might still be able to legally purchase here. Why the Alabama government wants to impede masturbation, the one form of sex that can be enjoyed without risk of disease, unplanned pregnancy, or exploitive financial commoditization, I have no idea, but if South Carolina adopts a simliar regime the popularity of linear art glass might, uh, surge.

    This is really ridiculous and makes me very angry!! I’ve had a vibrator for years, from Ohio, (don’t use very often because it’s cheap, but still in the drawer), but they can be used for other purposes. I also have a vibrator that you get from Walmart–and gals, let me tell you that the VENUS RAZOR has a vibrator on the other end, and curved for the right G-spot and clittoral fit…I’m not sure why they would need to put a vibrator in a razor, but it’s there!!!:)….FUN IN THE TUB ANYTIME OF DAY!!:)) It’s probably better than any sex toy you could buy out of state, right in your own grocery store!!!!
