The party of small government strikes again.

Seriously, is there anything they don't want to regulate, other than giant businesses?
 
2014-05-19 12:33:13 PM  
The ordinance in question prohibits the selling of sexual devices unless the customers have a bona fide medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial or law enforcement purpose.

Uhh, what now?  I think I'm gonna need further explanation on the legislative, judicial and law enforcement purposes of sex toys.

Lawyers, legislators, and judges are kinky freaks, duh. And cops use them to sodomize interrogate suspects.

The weird thing is that this isn't some weird, antiquated law.  Sandy Springs incorporated in 2005.  So that means that in 2005, grown adults actually sat down and created a law saying that you needed a prescription for a vibrator.
 
2014-05-19 12:38:21 PM  
Ah, yes.

One of the driving forces (besides the normal racism) behind the small city movement in Atlanta is to regulate sex.

Sandy Springs has one of the most restrictive adult entertaiment ordinances out there and this is not the first challenge (there is an adult club suit at the appealate level now).

It is all about a small group of very rich, stuck up fundies that disapprove of fun in all forms.
 
2014-05-19 12:38:52 PM  
I think the legislators who approved this law should be the first ones who have to show "evidence of medical necessity."   Given the average profile of a politician, most of these old bastards probably have enough of a toy collection to stock an entire sex dungeon/shop/rectory.

Yep.

Grew up in Sandy Springs, got roped into Brookhaven when it was created. Very familiar with both places.

The Pony lawsuit really is BS.  I'm not even sure why they even captured the place when they were drawing the lines.

The law isn't against possession. Just a small town that doesn't what sex shops on every corner.

I really don't have a problem with this.

I'm about as uptight and conservative as they come and...  I don't see the point in this law.  Ok, maybe the fundies who run the town (I get the impression they'd shoot Kevin Bacon on sight for dancing) don't want sex shops on Main St, but that's what zoning laws and permits are for.  How do they plan to enforce this law?  By illegally peeking into people's bedroom windows?  By inspecting their mail and violating Federal laws?  This kind of legislation is just stupid grandstanding.

If were true, then they could pass zoning regulations to control the number and location of sex shops.  Instead, they outlaw sex toys, which would allows shops to continue to exist selling adult magazines, videos, clothing, etc...  Toys only make up a small portion of their stock and are responsible for only a small portion of their profits.

Doraville is doing the same thing to the Oasis. People voted for creating these cities to get out from under the thumb of a non-responsive county government. Now they have to deal with power mad busybodies that want to tell them what to do with their spare time.

I live in the area that is trying to be Northlake and Briarcliff at the same time.  I'm not looking forward to it, but it unfortunately appears inevitable.

Probably.  It will depend how the local State Reps want to divvy it up.

And soon as it it settled, watch how fast the Velvet Room gets cited.

Yep. They probably should have just been a little more straightforward and banned sex shops. Without re-reading the article, I don't recall any mention of possession being forbidden, just the purchasing of one in Sandy Springs. Sandy Springs residents are probably not more than 10 minutes from the closest "novelty store". 

I'm a Libertarian, and I believe there is a limited but legitimate role of government. I believe reasonable zoning regulations aren't out of line. This appears to be an awkwardly-approached zoning law. 

Both Republicans and Democrats are authoritarian, and although I almost always vote Republican, I have to give the left credit for being candid about their desire to have government control behavior among consenting adults.
 
2014-05-19 03:53:53 PM  
So what they are really saying is that Sandy Springs was trying to find a way to close down the adult shops in Sandy Springs.  I think the government of Sandy Springs will find themselves on the losing end of this battle.  I predict that this zoning law has a religious nut behind it.

While I understand that the character for whom you're named is known for yelling, is it completely necessary to put your entire comment in bold?  Or are you concerned that people might not pay attention what you write? If that's the case, I'd just try to be more interesting.  More bold phrasing, less bold type.

Citation? Doubtful you can find one. Anecdotally, every sex shop I've ever been in has most of it's walls stocked with toys. When a silicon ring sells for several bucks and upwards, I'd guess there's a good profit margin.

Not one specifically.

Hint: Amazon sells sex toys.

Hint #2: vibrators were initially developed in the Victorian era as a treatment for "hysteria". Which covers all manner of female behavior. Also, here's your historical/educational purpose.

/pretty sure I could convince my psychiatrist to write me a scrip for sex toys as a treatment for depression, anyway
