Law & Disorder #2

No wonder the first lady always looks so glum. She thinks her husband doesn't suck. And the sale of dildos is frowned upon in Texas.

A person commits an offense if, knowing its content and character, he wholesale promotes or possesses with intent to wholesale promote any obscene material or obscene device.

A person who possesses six or more obscene devices or identical or similar obscene articles is presumed to possess them with intent to promote the same.

"Obscene device" means a device including a dildo or artificial vagina, designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs.

~Texas Penal Code, Sections 43.21, 43.23

Yes, this is a real law. Or was. Despite the state's position that the law was required to 'discourage prurient interests in autonomous sex and the pursuit of sexual gratification unrelated to procreation' (the horror!), an appeals court struck it down earlier this month.
