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.

The case file went to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2007, but the court chose not to hear it, effectively leaving the ban intact. The Alabama Supreme Court last year upheld the ban - part of an anti-obscenity law passed in 1998 - after hearing a case brought by an adult store in Hoover.

Williams said Alabama is the last state in the U.S. to have a sex toy ban. The anti-obscenity law had been sponsored by state Sen. Tom Butler in 1998, but Alabama officials said the sex toy ban was not intentional but the result of borrowing language from other states with similar laws.

But Alabama law also makes an exception to the ban on the sale of items designed for the "stimulation of human genital organs" if the sale was for "a bona fide medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial or law enforcement purpose."

Williams said customers cannot purchase a sex toy unless they fill out a medical questionnaire describing the health-related reasons for their purchase.

The new store, located at 4008 University Drive, was a former bank and most recently a jewelry store and will offer a number of new features, Williams said.

The store plans to give away condoms as a public service and will feature an "intimacy clinic" offering weekly seminars and workshops, marriage counseling and a sexual health library, which will feature well-known authors in the field, and an upscale clothing boutique.

Williams said the store will not sell adult videos.

"The real essence of what I'm trying to get across is adult stores don't have to be hidden in back alleys," she said. "Obviously we wouldn't be doing as well as we are if no one enjoyed shopping here."

Williams said neither her previous Huntsville location nor the Decatur store have ever been shut down on issues related to the state law. She said she follows the law, which bans the sale for "immoral purposes." Pleasures, she said, sells the products strictly for medical reasons.

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.

This is actually a great idea for sex stores. It's more than a little awkward for a lot of people to park in the lot of one of those places, then go in, and awkwardly browse around. Not to mention it's super embarrassing for people to toss their anal plug or other kinky implement onto the counter and pay out for that while other customers are eyeing them saying, "Damn... I'm freaky... but I ain't that freaky."

Being able to do it without leaving the comfort of your car is a good barrier breaker to get more customers in.

Of course, there's always the internet as well.

I don't know why anyone would pay for new sex toys. You can get used stuff at garage sales for practically nothing.

What was the idea behind a ban on sex toys? Something about not wanting others to be happy? That don't make no sense....

I think back when more farm labor was needed, leaders in Alabama didn't want women to have sex without getting pregnant.

With Alabama sexually repressing their citizens like that it's no wonder they're out fucking farm animals to release their "inner Kink".

You know what I hate.. when you're talking to someone and they pull into a drive through... It's like:


Hang on, I'm pulling up to the drive through...

Yes... I'll have the 16" Super Stallion Deluxe with Gyro Bead
..and... gimme the 8oz. Superglide. Yeah, the green bottle.
I'd also like 2 of the Soft n' Sensual nipple clips. In black.
and....... add a MiniFist too.
That'll be it.

No I don't want to add that.

Thanks.

Anyway, so we're going to get dinner at...........

It's also possible that the ban is because bondage gear was supposed to be used on slaves, not for fun.

Or possibly, the ban was put into place because otherwise there would be more young cousins left unsupervised.
