Alabama judge rules for love stuff sex toy shop – adults only law too vague

Well it seems that the ludacris laws that have been made restricting adult women’s (and men’s) places to purchase the toys and books that we want are finally being considering overly broad and too vague. An article from a newspaper in Alabama talks about a circuit judge striking down a law that would have closed the love stuff sex toys store.

I find it frustrating that politicians use porn and sex to muster up some votes and controversy, yet people don’t really consider how some of these laws are really just restricting where women can shop for marital aides and other products that we want. I know it is taboo to talk about these things in public, but people need to wake up and realize there is a fine between shutting down houses of ill repute and making it harder for women to have easy access to products that simply help them relax in the bedroom.

from the Birmingham news:

A store on U.S. 31 in Hoover that sells sex toys will be allowed to stay open because a 1998 state law regulating “adult-only” businesses is too vague, a Jefferson County circuit judge ruled today.

The city of Hoover argued that the Love Stuff store should not be allowed to operate at its present location because it violates a law forbidding “adult-only” businesses within 1,000 feet of houses, day care centers, churches and other places frequented by minors.

Circuit Judge Robert Vance Jr., in a 12-page decision, did not dispute whether Love Stuff was within 1,000 feet of such places but said the “crux” of the dispute was whether the store was an “adult-only” enterprise.

Vance ruled that the state law was “too vague to pass constitutional muster” because it does not clearly define what makes a business “adult-only.”

  1. These laws are ridiculous… the government has to stop treating us like children, trying to “protect” us from this and that… the government role is to educate us and that’s it, don’t make things illegal if they are not really dangerous or bad… sex is not bad, sex toys are not bad… argh… its really stupid.
