Get Your Hard On [Anywhere But Alabama]

MONTGOMERY, Ala - The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to hear a challenge to Alabama's ban on the sale of sex toys ... Sherri Williams, owner of Pleasures stores in Huntsville and Decatur, said she was disappointed, but plans to sue again on First Amendment free speech grounds.

"My motto has been they are going to have to pry this vibrator from my cold, dead hand. I refuse to give up," she said.

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." The law does not ban the possession of sex toys. Residents may legally purchase sex toys out of state for use in Alabama.

Of course, if you happen to be in Alabama and absolutely need to purchase sex toys, be careful which state you travel to ...

Similar laws have been upheld in Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas.
