New meaning to the phrase "Toy Drive"

Rhetorical question: why are people so damned afraid of women actually enjoying sex? Supreme Court lets stand law banning sale of sex toys in Alabama. "The law prohibited the distribution of "any device designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs." First-time violators can face a fine of up to $10,000 and as much as one year in jail."

Here's the capper: ACLU lawyers said the state of Alabama has never explained "why sales of performance enhancing drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra and even ribbed condoms are not similarly prohibited." No shit. Apparently little blue pills don't count as a "device"?

Anyway - there are similar laws in Texas and Georgia. I would propose we start an annual toy drive for the women of these states whose legislative representatives apparently have nothing more important to concern themselves with than women's orgasms. Not domestic violence, not child abuse, not crime rates. Not the abyssmal state of their public education systems. Nope. Dildo's and vibrators are what they're most concerned with.

But I'd be afraid it's not just the sale.. it's the "distribution" of such products that's illegal. So maybe the toy drive will have to be across the state line, instead. I think a sequel to Smokey & The Bandit is in order. This time with Sally Field in the lead as a sexually frustrated Alabama housewife. Only without the Thelma & Louise-esque ending.
