Mississippi Cracks Down on Pleasure


This bizarre story via feministing:

Jackson Police make three arrests after an undercover operation uncovers illegal sex toys at two adult bookstores on East McDowell Road in Jackson.

Police told News Channel 12 phone calls from neighbors led them to investigate Secrets Adult Bookstore and the McDowell Adult Bookstore….

The three arrested face charges of posessing sex toys with the intent to resale.

And Mississippi isn't the only state with a law against pleasure aids; it is also illegal to sell toys shaped like sexual organs in Georgia, Texas and Alabama. Of course it's one thing to have a Puritanical law. It's another to mount a whole investigation into violations of it.

Back in February Nick Gillespie had instant blog reaction when Alabama upheld its sex toy ban.
