Woman Sues City Over Sex Toy Ordinance
Melissa Davenport is filing a lawsuit against Sandy Springs over a law that requires a prescription or legitimate reason to purchase a sex toy. Forget about getting that gag gift for your boss or grandma.
Sex toys are sometimes seen as dirty things but they are actually something that can benefit marriages. Davenport is a perfect example as she credits sex toys for saving her marriage after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
According to an interview Davenport did with WSB TV, she explains her reasoning behind the lawsuit, “People really do need devices because they need it for health reasons and to have a healthy intimate life with their spouse. The nerve pathways interfered (with) going to my intimate areas, to the point where I had no feeling.”
Gerry Weber, Davenport’s attorney believes they can win this case as it violates an individual’s privacy rights, which the Fourteenth Amendment protects. Sandy Spring is expected to respond to the lawsuit sometime before June.
