Today, a federal court of appeals struck down Texas’s ban on sex toys, which criminalized the promotion and sale of vibrators, etcetera. It’s obviously ridiculous (patently so) that there are still states in which state law limits with what devices people can get pleasure in their own homes. But at least now there’s one fewer. And perhaps this decision will signal changes in other states, too, especially given that the decision was on federal constitutional grounds.
Molly Ivins would be proud.
