Go 'Bama! First state in the nation to have a drive-thru sex-toy store.
Edited on Fri Nov-12-10 04:34 AM by Syrinx




HUNTSVILLE, AL -- Pleasures, a "one-stop romance shop" that challenged Alabama's ban on sex toys, has a new, unique claim to fame: It will feature three sex toy drive-thru lanes at its new University Drive location.

Pleasures owner Sherri Williams said the store will be the first such store in the country to sell adult toys through a drive-thru window. Items such as toys, lubes and stimulants will be delivered through the drive-thru drawer in a brown paper bag, according to the store's news release.

Williams and her store drew national attention during a long legal fight that sought to overturn Alabama's ban on sex toys on the grounds of a constitutional right to privacy.

Madison County District Attorney Rob Broussard said if a case is investigated by a law enforcement agency and brought to his office showing something against the law, they'd act on it, but he said they already have plenty to keep them busy.

"Priority-wise, for the safety of the citizens of Madison County, with violent crime and drugs on our streets, we've got our hands full on a lot more pressing issues," Broussard said.
