Sexual repression for everyone!

You know, there are REAL, IMMINENT issues we should be dealing with. Being moral referees on the Buckle of the Bible Belt isn't exactly a priority.

I work at a small college that has a health science/nursing department which is the largest part of the school.

Well, our state legislators mandated that Net Nanny blocking software be put on all the computers in all the schools and libraries across the state, and it didn't matter if they were college level or not.

For the price of over a $100 million plus many millions more per year in licenses, the people of this state can be assured that no nursing student is getting a cheap thrill looking at hoo-hoo dillies and cha-cha's on the Internet.

Of course, most legitimate medical sites are mainly blocked and require a case by case review before they can be accessed.

Paul, what is more important here? Your studies or your porn? You pick.

Oh wait, you don't have to. That decision has already been made for you. Isn't it nice when people make decisions for you?

I love when someone tries to infantilize me. I get warm and fuzzy. Don't you?

Sheriff Mike Hunt arrests who he wants to and turns a bind eye to those who he doesn't want to arrest when probable cause exists for criminal behavior. There is probable cause to arrest the fired narcotics deputy for misconduct in office, misuse of government property, solicitation or adultery/fornication. Since he is an officer of the law and has knowledge of probable cause associated with these probable crimes, he may also be guilty of misconduct in office since arrest warrants have not been issued in this case by his law enforcement agency.

You know it's narrow minded pricks like this that pull the GOD card on everything while they cheat on their loved ones and drink themselves into oblivion. If you want to ban something, i say ban people like you from having an opinion in this world. If it was left up to you we would still ride in horse drawn buggies. But I digress, why blame the porn when it's the parents job to moniter what their kids see on tv and what they buy. for god sake they card you at the door! Leav porn alone and beat your kids for a change. Spare the rod spoil the child, live up to that rule from the good book then come cry about the issues of our youth you pathetic morons!

if you want to have a rubber cock in your house so be it. Don't flaunt it in anyone's face. What you do in your house is your business, Face it most "politcian" already have sex out side their marriage or have a porn addiction. What next no liquor on sunday. Oops i forgot that is already here and the "God" Loving state. Did't Jesus turn water into wine.

In poor countries, I've heard people get creative with certain items of produce (melons, cucumbers, etc). Banning sex toys might put the produce at risk. You might want to sniff those carrots before putting them in your buggy.

I don't think that they need to ban sex toys at all, because all of the preverts and sex offenders will then be at large. You will not be able to go anywhere with out wondering who is watching you. The movie theaters will be overly crowded with sex offenders watching our children. So, I think they need to concentrate on the drugs in S.C.. The meth labs need to go. Leave the sex toys alone.

Why doesn't someone just hire a friggin detective
to follow this goon Davenport around until he
visits the local Whorehouse (if he is often
in Columbia,SC then it would be across the street
from Hooters on Broad River Road....but I digress)
And take a couple of nice snapshots and reveal
this closet humper for what he is? I don't even live
there (anymore and thank goodness!!) but someone
from there should just foot the bill to snoop
around in this guys bidness....just like he wants
to do to you...I would bet that a guy
who honestly doesn't like to see a nice lady pleasuring
herself with a nicely shaped rubber prick (and she
can even pick out the right size, shape and speed...not usually possible with REAL men) has some sort of repressed sexuality. Who knows what IT is that turns
him on. Apparently not what millions of others are doing.
But, on a positive note: I am sure the Dildo/Vibrator markets are glad for his additional press. Every one is running out and buying the things like they are canned good before a tornado. Good work Davenport.

God is everywhere....even in your pants.

There are medical devices that are described as "prosthetic marital aids" or the like and are to help people with deformities, injuries, and so on. Since these are nearly identical to ordinary sex toys, I wonder if they'll be banned as well.
