Is That a Dildo in your Handbag?

by Red Wolf

United States: Seems the police in Texas have nothing better to do with their time than to mount personnel intensive sting operations to entrap housewives selling sex toys whose only crime was not knowing about a legal loophole.

Joanne Webb intended to spice up marriages and earn extra cash by selling erotic toys. Instead, the former fifth-grade teacher and executive board member of the Burleson Chamber of Commerce faces criminal charges and embarrassment after a police sting.

Webb was one of 3,000 consultants for Passion Parties, a San Francisco-based company whose representatives set up Tupperware-type parties for women who feel more comfortable buying marital aids in a private home than at an adult bookstore or on the Internet.

Adult stores sell sex toys around the law by posting signs that say sold only as novelties. Webb didn't do that and faces up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine if convicted.

You just know some fundie got their knickers in a twist and demanded the cops stop this evil woman. That's what you get when you elect police, cops too frightened to tell dickheads loonies to get a life for fear of losing their jobs.
