Dildos at the Supreme Court

Via Eugene Volokh, it looks like the Supreme Court will be considering laws which prohibit the sale of sex-toys.

The Texas ban on dildoes — yes, it expressly mentions “dildo” — has just been struck down by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. The law, the court held, violates Lawrence v. Texas right of “adult consensual sexual intimacy in the home.”On this, the Fifth Circuit disagrees with the Eleventh Circuit, which upheld a similar Alabama law last year.

I love this country.
