In a 2-1 decision, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals just upheld an Alabama law banning the sale of sex toys. I thought this did a good job analyzing the ruling.
Personally, I liked this quote from the Alabama statute in question, exempting from the prohibition the sale of sexual devices
for a bona fide medical, scientific,(emphasis added)
educational, legislative, judicial, or law enforcement purpose.
What could judges and law enforces possibly need a dildo for? Perhaps Oklahoma Judge Donald Thompson could give us a clue?
