    I heard a rumor about that, but I don't think it's true.

    Just don't do it in public and you'll be fine.:wink:

    We have sex shops and condom stores here that sell dildos, so I don't think that is illegal.

    And we do have gay guys here, so...:tongue:

    Technically speaking, it used to be. Many states in the USA had or have archaic sodomy laws on the books, Texas included.

    In 2003, the SCOTUS issued a ruling in Lawrence and Garner v. Texas that essentially struck down such laws that concern the private sexual practices of consenting adults as unconstitutional. Given the jurisdiction, this ruling applies to ALL states of the union.

    So in a nutshell, no...you can no longer be harassed by the government for putting toys up your ass.

    But you are harassed for selling them. The texas state legislature is still obsessed with dildos:

    Well, maybe it's like "drug paraphernalia"..... Until it's been used and has residue on it, a waterpipe may not technically be considered "drug paraphernalia".

    Perhaps the same logic could be applied to.... :eek222:


    eww. :worried:

    Don' call Pres. Bush a dildo (it gives dildos a bad name) and no it is not illegal for him to be in Texas.

    There have also been a number of unfair prosecutions of individuals charged with selling "obscene materials", such as this one:

    ICv2 News - On Probation for Selling Comics

    Sorry, love...the levity was intended to convey a sense of safety. The existing laws of this state (and most other states) concerning such devices are aimed at those who sell them or use them in public exhibitions. Personal ownership and private usage is not in any way affected.

    So, yes...bring the whole kit n kaboodle.

    Please do!

    But businesses can be held responsible for selling dildoes at their place of business. I think that is illegal here and their have been raids when the religious right has made a stink for law enforcement to enforce the laws. Some places sell "dildoes" and get away with it somehow by calling them stimulators or vibrators or something else. Got to shops in the state and you see very few of them, unlike going into a sex shop in LA or NYC or somewhere else.

    This thread has been interesting. Now I know why when I go into Forbidden Fruit to buy toys......why they call them educational models. I got a little nervous when I read that you can't have more than 6 dildos. (educational models) I probably have 1 of everything that Forbidden Fruit sells. And I purchased them all at Forbidden Fruit.....over a period of time of course. Nobody ever told me that I couldn't have more than 6.....Or that I was doing anything against the law.

    I wouldn't worry too much Dragonfly20. Lots of people have large toy collections here. Even the people enforcing the law here.

    I think I heard from the previous posts that if you get caught having anal sex it is a class C misdemeanor here in Texas. Well, if you get caught having sexual intercourse in public that is a class C misdemeanor too. It is the same as prostitution. The only reason why I know this......is because of Hippie Hollow....every so often they catch people having sex out there and they take them away in hand cuffs. I have a nudist friend in my club who is a lawyer and I asked him.
