In Georgia, Itís Harder To Buy A Vibrator Than It Is To Buy A Gun

Small government Republicans have a ban on the purchase of sex toys by women in Sandy Springs, GA. No, really.
Apparently vibrators kill more people than guns Ė at least in Sandy Springs, Ga. You can carry a gun without a prescription, or even a criminal check. But in order to purchase a sex toy, a woman needs her doctorís permission. No kidding!

Under a local ordinance, any woman seeking a marital aide has to go to the trouble of making an appointment with her physician, paying for the visit and providing the doc with a valid medical reason for needing a sex toy. Then if the physician deems her medically wanting and feels like giving her a prescription, she can go to the toy store.

Surely this is unconstitutional? Isn't there an explicit right to a well orgasmed militia?

I thought this thread was going to be about the various 'mythical miniature people' tales from various cultures.

It's kind of interesting how many cultures have that myth.

Nope. Just about some guys so fearful of their manhood's inadequacies that they do stupid stuff in an effort to control women they think of as theirs.

Well, Sandy Springs, Ga is less than 2 miles from the Atlanta beltway. I'm sure that within 10-15 miles they can find a shop more than happy to sell them whatever toy(s) they want. Stupid people do stupid things, someone is scared to death someone else may be having fun.

Cheers,

Yesterday, I learned that in Texas you need a permit issued by the state government to buy and sell even the simplest laboratory glassware. You're supposed to file paperwork (http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/regulatoryservices/narcotics/narcprecursor.htm) before attempting to procure one of these terrifying objects:

Yup, Erlenmayer flasks are specifically named, along with filter funnels, adapter tubes, florence flasks, etc. I wonder what Texan kids have in their chemistry kits, these days?

Amazing.

Those are the King and Queen building.
Just a guess but this might have to do with Sandy Springs trying to run adult themed businesses out of the community. I seriously doubt female residents have to procure a doctors note to purchase said device.

I suspect a Yankee troll at work here.

Just reporting the news. Which I find pretty funny given some folks' obsession with their manhood. Not anyone here of course. Only those other guys.

I find the ordinance extremely stupid and way out of line, but I blame religion more than I blame anyone persons lack of manhood. The meaning of the last two sentences, I'm not sure what is being implied.

As to first sentence in the OP...


[IMc - Note that the ordinance applies only to women.]

There is nothing in the ordinance that I see which singles out women. In fact, one of the two plantiffs is a bi-sexual man. Who, funny enough, uses vibrators in his "art". :D

BrianW is correct that the ordinance does not single out women. He's thus also correct that this ordinance is not solely an attempt to control women, but is rather an effort to regulate sex toys out of town. Unless you have a willing doctor. I now wish I'd googled up other sourses rather than just taking Addicting Info as complete. I should have known better. Thank you for the correction BrianW. Try this from Reason:


Georgia Woman Sues Over City Sex Toy Ban
Elizabeth Nolan Brown|May. 16, 2014 11:29 am

A Georgia woman has filed a lawsuit against the city of Sandy Springs over an ordinance banning the sale of sex toys to anyone without a "medical, scientific, educational, legislative, or law enforcement" purpose. In effect, Sandy Springs residents are required to have a doctor's prescription or otherwise prove they only intend to use that vibrator for state-sanctioned reasons.

"(Some people) have this dirty mind about how people are going to use it," plaintiff Melissa Davenport told Atlanta's WSB-TV 2. "People really do need devices because they need it for health reasons and to have a healthy intimate life with their spouse."

Davenport, 44, has multiple sclerosis, which interfered with her ability to enjoy sex. She credits the introduction of sex toys with "saving" her marriage of 24 years. Not that it should make a damn bit of difference why anyone wants to buy a sex toy or how they intend to use it.

Ostensibly Sandy Springs residents can turn to online sex toy retailers with little problem. But in ordering Internet dildos, they would still officially be breaking the law. I'm glad Davenport—a spokeswoman for sexual health in the MS community who seeks not just to purchase but also to sell sex toys in Sandy Springs—is challenging the ordinance as a violation of her 14th Amendment rights to privacy and liberty.

The other plaintiff in the lawsuit is a man named Henry, described in court documents as "a bisexual man and artist." Henry has previously used sex toys in art exhibits in Sandy Springs and would like to in the future, the lawsuit says. He would also like to be able to sell artwork containing these banned sexual devices and purchase sex toys, for artistic and personal purposes, in the city. Henry alleges that the ordinance violates his First Amendment rights, as well.

The city is expected to file a response in June.

Hmmm, I've never heard of sex toys being used for law enforcement or state sanctioned purposes before, but thank goodness they'll be available should the need arise.

As an aside, this could be a job creator. Porn shop employees will no doubt be required to hold degrees in pharmacology now.
