BDSM and The Law Alabama 

In Alabama, it's against the law for a man to seduce "a chaste woman by means of temptation, deception, arts, flattery or a promise of marriage."
Sex is defined as :  Alabama Defines obscenity as something which:

     1. Applying contemporary local community standards, on the whole, appeals to the prurient interest; and
     2. Is patently offensive; and
     3. On the whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

If you live in Alabama ask your Legislator to change these laws

 

Selling of Sex Toys

Sex Toys Defined Alabama defines sex toys as device[s] designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs for any thing of pecuniary value”

A section of the obscenity statute of Alabama (Ala. Code. § 13A-12-200.1) now "makes it unlawful to produce, distribute or otherwise sell sexual devices that are marketed primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs."

Alabama puts forth that these products are obscene, and also states that there is "no fundamental right to purchase a product to use in pursuit of having an orgasm." Violation of the law is punishable by fine and/or imprisonment. Because this addition intrudes on lawful sexual practices of those purchasing or owning such devices, thus going against the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution, four Alabama women and the ACLU are challenging this law.
