Original Starting post for this thread:
I've just been working on my story about the AVN convention. A portion of the convention is focused on sex toys which is a multi billion dollar business. Who is the mostly likely user of sex toys? Would you guess a married, monogamous, college-educated, white, Christian, Republican woman in her thirties? That’s the conclusion of a survey that found the most users of sex toys had children at home, made more than $40,000 per year. Typically they have one or two vibrators and some sex toys using them for masturbation or sex with their partner. Most consider them a great way to add variety to their sex lives. Ironically sales of sex toys are illegal in several states most notably Alabama. I also understand they are illegal in Texas and other states but Alabama has gotten a lot of press of their law and when it was challenged it was my understanding the appeals court in the South would not hear the case.

I'm not looking for an argument. I'm looking for the logic behind this law. I know a few conservatives but none of them can even say the word sex let alone talk about it. My take on this law is that conservatives feel women should not be able to enjoy orgasms? So tell me why is it that conservatives feel it necessary to pass a law making vibrators illegal?

Swinging is populated with extremely conservative folks...as a rule. They merely have a penchant for multiple partners. That stat about who would have a vibrator...describes many swinging women to a T.

M. I AM an illegal sex toy.

Not true about CA. If you want to smoke in CA you simply get a perscription. Then it's free!

Yes Nevada has legal brothels and it works very well. The girls are clean, there is no risk of being robbed and there is no need for pimps to protect the girls.

However, prostitution is illegal in Reno and Las Vegas. That came as a requirement from the federal government when they build Nellis Air Force base. That doesn't mean however, that it will take you any more than 15 minutes to find a hooker in a strip casino. It's just another one of those laws that sees selective enforcement.

Lucky I think you are thinking about Utah being 0 tolerance for marajuana. That's yet another silly law that has no real purpose and sees little enforcement. The voters here did overwhelmingly support medical marajuana in Nevada.

The reason street prostitution is illegal in Vegas is that it makes it so that Pimps can enjoy the finer things in life.

Why is NV a 0 tolerance when it comes to Marijuana? figured all you liberals there would have taken care of that.

I would suspect Alabama, while trying to protect their beloved lesbians, banned the sale of dildo's especially those concealing AK47's as a protective measure...you know, so as not to have them injured. Why is street prostitution banned in NV??

I don't live in Alabama, but I would suspect it is the same reason most supermarkets don't allow the sale of porno mags. I think the idea is to restrict the open sale. In other words they might not want the kids picking one up in Wally World and asking mama for this new toy. The residents can and do still buy sex toys mail order. All my wifes toys were bought mail order, and we have sex shops here. And I like how this came around to AK's, so now I understand your objection to a law in a state you do not reside in. You can't stand it they can buy firearms in Alabama. Some more damn liberal sneaky shit.

Lucky since we can't post links on here it's a little difficult to direct you to sources. I also agree that different states can and do have different laws. However, we are still one country and we do have some basic fundamentals of law that apply to all who live in the US. In this case if you were in Alabama walking down the street selling dildos and AK-47's you'll be arrested for selling dildos! Sorry folks that is screwed up! We as a country openly discriminate against lesbians in that they can't visit their partners in hospitals or have rights to inherit property that they worked with their partners to aquire. It seems really difficult to believe that legislators would find it in their best to ban the sales of vibrators on the off chance that two lesbians might use the same one and end up with an infection? Especially since millions of women not just lesbians use vibrators on a regular basis. For many women it's the only way they can achieve orgasm. It may not have been the intent of this law to deprive women of orgasms but that is what effectively does.

Here are some quotes. I tired to post link but of course that won't come through.

"A federal appeals court Wednesday upheld a 1998 Alabama law banning the sale of sex toys in the state, ruling the Constitution doesn't include a right to sexual privacy." Court TV

"The Supreme Court declined Tuesday to review the constitutionality of a state law banning the sale of sex toys, rejecting an appeal that said consumers have a right to sexual privacy. Without comment, justices let stand a lower court ruling that said Alabama had a right to police the sale of devices that can be sexually stimulating. " USAtoday

I'm not trying to change the law in Alabama, Texas, and Georgia. I don't live there. In my opinion this is yet another example of the conservatives taking away our personal freedom. My real question was why vibrators? I just can't think of any reason why anyone would want to do that and from the responses no one else seems to have any idea either.

The sexual privacy issue is the reason the appeals court did not over turn the law.

Please show me where it is said that the court was depriving anyone of a right to privacy...Possession is not a crime, but selling them is.
