LAW: Texas ban on sale of adult toys overturned

Going to be a few moments before I can post the actual text of the decision, but:

That's right, quoting Lawrence and Garvner v. Texas (which overturned sodomy laws in 2003), the appeals judge states: "Just as in Lawrence, the state here wants to use its laws to enforce a public moral code by restricting private intimate conduct. The case is not about public sex. It is not about controlling commerce in sex. It is about controlling what people do in the privacy of their own homes because the state is morally opposed to a certain type of consensual private intimate conduct. This is an insufficient justification after Lawrence."

Now Alabama is the only state left to have real strict statutes against it.
