S*x Toys v. Sex Slavery
If the government is powerless to interfere with our right to play with a consenting adult sex partner of either gender, it should surely be powerless to prevent us from playing with a sex toy. Some South Carolina extremists nonetheless view the sale of sex toys as the kind of commercial activity that the state legislature should ban.
The South Carolina bill, proposed by Republican Rep. Ralph Davenport, would make it a felony to sell devices used primarily for sexual stimulation and allow law enforcement to seize sex toys from raided businesses.
"That would be the most terrible thing in the world," said Ms. Gillespie, an employee the Anderson shop. "That is just flabbergasting to me. We are supposed to be in a free country, and we're supposed to be adults who can decide what want to do and don't want to do in the privacy of our own homes."
Those who fret about the private lives of adults should redirect their interest to a serious topic: the kidnapping and sex trafficking of women in Iraq, a phenomenon that began after President Bush declared "Mission Accomplished."
