Alabama Sex Shop Offers Drive-Thru Service

| by

I'd like some anal love beads, a blow-up doll and a Mandingo dildo... and could I have fries with that? Oh, and super size, if ya could.

Ya gotta love the Bible-thumping South...home of conservatives, preachers, toe-tapping toilet stalls, repressed gay Republicans and hypocrisy.

Pleasures, a "one-stop romance shop" that challenged Alabama's ban on sex toys, has a new, unique claim to fame: It will feature three sex toy drive-thru lanes at its new University Drive location.

Williams said Alabama is the last state in the U.S. to have a sex toy ban. The anti-obscenity law had been sponsored by state Sen. Tom Butler in 1998, but Alabama officials said the sex toy ban was not intentional but the result of borrowing language from other states with similar laws.

But Alabama law also makes an exception to the ban on the sale of items designed for the "stimulation of human genital organs" if the sale was for "a bona fide medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial or law enforcement purpose."

Williams said  customers cannot purchase a sex toy unless they fill out a medical questionnaire describing the health-related reasons for their purchase.
