Good article on ABC News site titled “When Sex Is Not as Private as You Expect”
The following paragraph appears in the article and I take strong issue with it.
But the 11th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled on Jan. 31, 2001 that communities have a “legitimate legislative interest in discouraging prurient interests in autonomous sex” — masturbation, in other words — because that may be “detrimental to the health and morality of the State.” After numerous appeals affirming the inital ruling, the case was finally settled when the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal last October.
Who were the fucking justices who said the state has control over a persons body? I know about the suicide thing but seriously, tossing a load out is the governments concern according to the 11th Circuit? You mean to tell me none of the GUYS on that panel never let one fly? Come on, this is ridiculous on so many levels.
I also find it interesting the the United States Supreme Court has declined to issue a writ of certiorari. Maybe they have skeletons in their closets too.
I’m so glad I live in a place where the state only sees dollar signs. Therefore we have adult stores, back rooms, glory holes, sex clubs, strip clubs for ALL, that’s right both gay and straight. And there’s even a loophole in the prostitution law here that says so long as it’s done indoors, the state has no power over it. I think the reason our legislature consistently fails to close this loophole is because there are several members who have probably at one time or another used said services of a prostitute and they don’t want a pissed off prostitute telling their business.
If you want to get your freak on, Providence is definitely the place to do so.
And our adult stores can sell all manner of toys to those 18 and over without having to resort to ridiculous surveys. But then it’s Alabama, what should I have expected. It’s strange, I’ve met some charming people form that state. That they’re here in Rhode Island says it all. Even they couldn’t tolerate the insanity.
