Just in time for Valentine’s Day, a federal court overturned a law that banned the selling of sex toys in Texas. You can buy a B.O.B. in Texas!

“By ANGELA K. BROWN, Associated Press Writer

FORT WORTH, Texas – A federal appeals court has overturned a statute outlawing sex toy sales in Texas, one of the last states — all in the South — to retain such a ban.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Texas law making it illegal to sell or promote obscene devices, punishable by as many as two years in jail, violated the right to privacy guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.”
