Semantics Mean Everything

A woman who sold sex toys for a sex toy Tupperware-like company has been charged with a misdemeanor under Texas' obscenity laws.

Sure, there are plenty of sex shops in Texas... and how they get around these laws is, apparently, to adhere to a loophole where they say that the toys are sold as "novelties only."

I guess this means: sold just to stare at em and not to use em, 'cause if you were to use 'em, you'd be a naughty, NAUGHTY person.

The Tupperware-like company failed to properly advise this particular lady so she would have a "sold as novelties only" sign on her during the sex toy parties... and, as a result, the powers that be caught up with her.

She now continues to sell her "novelties," but with a "novelties" sign.

A far cry from places like San Francisco where you can walk down the street and see inside the window of a sex shop, selling dildos, on sale, for Christmas!
