    Hmm, maybe Texas wouldn't be so bad to live in after all..

    Nice prices too.

    Although I've never heard of a "Jelly Julie", anyone know what exactly that is?

    Tupperware-style parties? Now that sounds like fun! How do I get in on that racket?:D

    Ah good to see the morality police are still riding high though. Wouldn't want women actually enjoying sex! Heaven forbid.

    what was illegal about this??? just another example of big brother coming at us and big brother wanting us all to support the screwed up legal system. I mean come on , they have so many laws and interpetation of laws that we all are criminals. i doubt there is a person alive that hasnt broke some stupid law.

    You know, I try not to say insulting things about Texas, but as if the whole bannana republic joke with redistricting wasn't enough, now there's this--paid police officers taking time out of their days to execute an undercover sting operation against a woman selling sex aids to MARRIED COUPLES (which is what the cops were posing as).

    I thought I lived in a first world nation, but I'm begining to wonder. I may live in the state with the Governator, but at least I can still buy some lube without getting arrested.

    You do know what sodomy is right? 'Cuz a vibrator doesn't necessarily go in that hole....

    Sounds to me like they are going after her on obscenity grounds.

    Do YOU know what sodomy is? It's any form of intercourse deemed to be "unnatural"... it doesn't have to mean anal intercourse... and by definition, anything that takes batteries is "unnatural."

    That said, I still think there is nothing wrong with these sorts of parties. There are many companies all over the country, and presumably the world, doing them, and this is the first time I have heard of any sort of legal entanglement.

    Nope, it's actually NOT the anti-sodomy law that's the issue; the relavent item would be this, paraphrased from the link below:

    "Obscene devices", defined as anything "designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs".

    Ironically, this statute apparently doesn't apply to many far more exotic sexual aids, which seem to be legal in Texas.

    This article from the Austin Chronicle (as well as other, somewhat raunchier ones I've read), mentions that to buy an artificial phallus from a legit store in Austin you have to sign a release stating that it is an anatomically correct condom model for educational purposes only. Right.

    Texas is one messed-up state.

    Although I would imagine if a foreign object is involved, a woman could sodomize another woman.

    Texas' (and other states', by extension) sodomy laws were struck down as unconstitutional in the case of Lawrence v. Texas earlier this year.

    The saddest part of this is we have missing people outthere, we have murderers running around, carjackers, thieves, burglaries and arsonist and they are farting around chasing a saleswoman selling Dildo's. our tax dollars hard at work making another innocent tax payer a criminal. we dont need a police state we need some common sense something govt does not have.

    Cops in Texas must have solved all of the murders, rapes, robberies and burglaries for them to start busting people for this.
