Woman Files Suit Over Law Requiring Doctor’s RX To Purchase Sex Toys

Good for her. These laws exist in a lot more places that you might know, but don’t get challenged because people are ashamed to admit in public that they get up to the same kinds of things most Americans do in private. Chill out, morality police. Nothing is forbidden in the House of Love.

SANDY SPRINGS , Ga., May 16 (UPI) –A Georgia woman is suing the city of Sandy Springs over a law that requires a prescription or a legitimate reason to purchase sex toys.
Melissa Davenport filed the lawsuit hoping a judge finding the law unconstitutional.

The ordinance requires people to have a legitimate medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial or legal reason to purchase an “obscene” sexual device.

Davenport, who has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, credits sex toys with saving her marriage.

    Damn lady dont you know you can just buy that shit online? Shit I even saw some vibrators and lube on groupon a while back. Why waste time with a lawsuit?

      Probably because it sucks to be subject to someone else’s opinion about what you ought do to in your own home.

        Well getting rid of the law is not going to change people’s opinion I get she did it out of principle but doesnt mean its not going to be time consuming for her. Plus there are way more pressing issues in this country than if you can buy a dildo in a store in your own town especially when you can get it online

          If there’s no law stopping me from doing what I like, I really don’t care about people’s opinions.

          If my cat poops on the floor, the nation has more pressing issues, but I’m still gonna clean it up.

            Unjust laws are meant to be broken you dont always have to sue plus it really wont make much of a difference in the big picture of things. If she really wanted to ruffle some feathers she would go buy a dump truck full of sex toys and spread them through out her entire town driving around in the middle of the night like a paperboy throwing them on every porch and business and all over the sidewalks and every where. I would love to see the looks on the conservative christians faces when they woke up in the morning to that.

            Much as I’d love to see that scene, I think that suing to overturn unjust laws is a better strategy than breaking laws or being the Easter bunny of dildos. (But have an upvote for the fun thought!)
