In the state of Alabama, it is illegal to purchase sex toys unless it is for “a bona fide medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial or law enforcement purpose,” according to Alabama state law. One lone store stood up against this potentially unconstitutional law (the Supreme Court never tried it) and, sadly, failed against the might of the Alabama court system. But, now, Pleasures is back and pushing the law again, while still remaining within its terms. “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” in Huntsville, Alabama.
Who would have thunk it?! A single store in sweet home Alabama is at the fore-front of the adult toy store industry. “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.”
Whether you are purchasing items from an adult toy store for leisurely purposes or for reasons that fall under Alabama’s law, let us all hope that although Pleasures is the first of its kind to open up a drive-thru window option, it won’t be the last!
