Alabama court rejects challenge to sex toy ban

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's top court has rejected a challenge to a state law banning the sale of sex toys except for limited purposes.

The Love Stuff store in Hoover had challenged the law as unconstitutional. The Alabama Supreme Court rejected the challenge Friday in a 7-2 decision.

An attorney for Love Stuff, Amy Herring, says her client is considering asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the decision.

Alabama's ban permits sales for a few reasons, including medical purposes. Stores require customers to say they are buying the sex toys for one of the permitted reasons.

    That is the CRAZIEST thing I have ever heard! I remember "THE BAN"first took place about year & half ago.I say that takes away our constitional rights as people to do what we want to do behind closed doors!! You have right to go purchase a sex toy and You have a right not to purchase one.The ones that DON'T LIKE IT you don't have to go in the store.But they are the very that do!I say bring back the sex toys.WHY??It could help relationships and also the spreading of diseases.THINK ABOUT IT!!
