A commentary and resource on Law and Sexuality by Professor Chris Ashford and guests
Back in February I blogged about Lawrence and Garner v Texas decision on a sex toy ban. Well the subject was back in court last week. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has two areas of focus on his web page – killing people and sex. It seems he hates sex and loves killing people. That may be an exaggeration but there do seem a lot of press releases about executions and it is reported that he’s just tried to appeal against a decision that prevented him from banning dildos, vibrators and a host of other sex toys. He attempted to overturn the previous Lawrence decision and ensure there was a ban on sex toys. Luckily for the million of Texans who were desperately thinking of a hiding place for their deluxe rabbit, they don’t have to because the AG was defeated. Take a look at the judgment here.
