Sex Toy Saleswoman Arrested
The saleswomen of Passion Parties hold Tupperware-style parties to peddle, uh, sex toys. (Warning: Not your Mom's Tupperware-style party.) Fortunately, two vigilant undercover officers in Burleson, Texas, grew wise to the caper, and nabbed the Burleson rep for Passion Parties, a 43-year old women who is married and has three kids. Selling obscene devices is illegal in Texas. The International Herald Tribune tells the tale. Recently, law professor Eugene Volokh of the Volokh Conspiracy indicated that one federal trial court (in Williams v. Pryor, 220 F. Supp. 2d 1257 (N.D. Ala. 2002)) ruled that laws forbidding sales of sex toys violate the right to privacy.
