Ted Cruz and Just Say No to Vibrators
(Former Presidential Candidate) Ted Cruz tried to stop you from buying your favorite vibrators and dildos!
When Ted Cruz was running for President, his shady history as the "Texas Solicitor General" shocked and angered people across the nation. Cruz fought tooth-and-nail against the sale or sexual devices like dildos, vibrators and penis pumps — comparing the sale of these devices to the "sale of sex". Thankfully the appeals court wouldn't accept his ridiculous back-woods arguments and slapped him on the back of the head.
As an industry, we already have a target painted on our backs and decided to "sit this one out" and let mainstream media and angry citizens go on the attach. It was a good decision on our part because Cruz was hammered on his beliefs that the state had a right to regulate consensual sex between consensual adults in private. We are happy those days are over and Cruz is history.
The brief insisted that Texas, in order to protect "public morals," had "police-power interests" in "discouraging prurient interests in sexual gratification, combating the commercial sale of sex, and protecting minors." There was a "government" interest, it maintained, in "discouraging…autonomous sex." The brief compared the use of sex toys to "hiring a willing prostitute or engaging in consensual bigamy," and it equated advertising these products with the commercial promotion of prostitution.
The court ruled:
"The sale of a device [such as vibrators or dildos] that an individual may choose to use during intimate conduct with a partner in the home is not the 'sale of sex' (prostitution)."
Summing up, the judges declared, "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 for the statute
