Reminder to self:

Never, ever, move to Alabama.

From BoingBoing: Supreme Court Denies Alabama Women Mechanically Induced Orgasms.

Alabama’s anti-obscenity law, enacted in 1998, bans the distribution of "any device designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs for anything of pecuniary value."
And from the AP Article:
The law does not ban the possession of sex toys, and it doesn't regulate other items, including condoms or virility drugs. Residents may legally purchase sex toys out of state for use in Alabama, or they may buy sexual devices in Alabama that have a "bona fide medical" purpose.
Ironically, vibrators were originally a medical device.

Hey, I think I may finally know what my Halloween costume is going to be! A Steampunk Vibrator! Yeah, a steampunk vibrator that also plays this video! (discovered via Gordon Unleashed)

Stupid Blue Laws. Maybe we should call them "Blue-Ball Laws" instead. Then they'd be repealed in an instant.

Sounds like a job for the jackhammer jesus or some of the other fun and oh-so-wrong toys on that site.

You should dress up for Halloween as an Alabama vibrator.

They just made a movie based on "The Technology of Orgasm"-Passion and Power . The fact that Betty Dodson is in it really makes me want to go see it, I'm not going to lie. :)
