A 40 year old woman has been arrested in Texas for selling sex toys such as vibrator and dildos. A law in Texas bans all sex toys since they support the porn industry, and pornography is also illegal in Texas......
The woman is challenging the law in US Federal court as a violation of her constitutional rights. Texas says that her 1st amendment rights are not protected by things that are judged to be obscene.

Interesting......

In a general sense, there is nothing illegal about selling sex toys or selling/viewing pornographic magazines/videos in the state of Texas...otherwise there are violators all over Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, et. al.

The woman is an idiot, as his her lawyer for bringing up her First amendment rights in an issue involving the commerce of banned goods.

Sorry, but a dildo is not speech. Elected dildos may make speeches, but it just isnt the same thing.  Smile

Who determines if something is obscene?
BTW, I´ve been to Dallas, TX two years ago for my A&P licence, and asa Europeans I found it funny that it was easier to buy a semiauto AK-47 there than a bottle of beer!
BTW, I´m pro gun, but also pro beer.

Texas is one back-wards f--cked up state.
(No offense to my friends that live there)

The most obsene thing about Texas is th epolitical climate.

Superfly, it is not illegal to sell or buy sex toys here. Maybe you have to have some kind of "license" to do it, like a liquor license, I really have no idea, but I know for a fact you can do it legally.

It's even more insane to say that pornography is illegal in Texas....there are entire stores dedicated to porn and sex toys in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, etc....

Probably a setup "test case" in order to challenge the law just like Lawrence v. Texas was.

As others have said, p0rn and such is perfectly legal in Texas if one wishes to partake in such vices. There are laws that regulate these vices but then again, what isn't regulated in this day and age?

HEE HAW!
The law is the law..selling sex toys is not a right.
Whether or not the law in the Long Horn State is right or wrong..it was illegal..if she didn't like it she should have started a petition to change the law or just go to a state where selling is legal.
It's not rocket science!

cheers!

The reason Jcs17's mother was arrested for selling these sex toys was that she had 'tested' them all out before selling them, and failed to wash off all the 'residue' she left behind.

Its the Lone Star state. Referring to it as the Long Horn state is in fact criminal.  Big grin

Test for what? Think before you spew. Lawrence was about privacy; this case is about commerce.

"...but then again, what isn't regulated in this day and age?"

You should know that. Fighting words coming from supporters of a political party that fights tooth and claw not to regulate the contents of nutritional supplements, yet doesnt think twice to regulate how one can have sex.

I think the official charge against her was possessing Weapons of Mass Seduction.  Smile

Edited to add: BTW, I read about this case in a USA Today article. It said adult stores in Texas are able to sell sex toys around the law by posting signs that say "sold only as novelties." Ms. Webb didn't do that and faces up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine if convicted. Sounds like nitpicking to me.

I spent twenty-five years of my life in the good ole South before leaving it behind. It's been four years now and not a week goes by that I don't get some sort of reminder that makes me so glad I no longer live there.

I saw something on a news program a few weeks ago, where women were having "sex toy" parties....a woman was invited to the party to sell her merchandise (sort of like a modern version of an old "Tupperware" party).

Is this the same woman....she is very, very attractive.



Having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a swimming pool.....
