Illegal Sex Toys Sold In Adult Store

Can you have an illegal sex toy? A slow news day in Jackson, Mississippi:

After hearing rumors that the “Adult Video and Books” boutique on McDowell Road, which had previously been busted for selling sex toys, was at it again, the intrepid Kandiss Crone from the 3 On Your Side “news” team decided to go undercover. Based on the secret audio recording, it sounds like she was confronted with a helpful sales person who sold her a vibrator (she chose “the purple one”). She then went back to confront an unimpressed but entirely pleasant store owner who tried to explain to Ms. Crone all the different places on your body you can use a vibrator (the one’s not prohibited by law in Mississippi).

Having bought a vibrator that matched her jumper, the intrepid reporter nailed her scoop:

Kandiss Crone: “Hi, Charles, I’m Kandiss Crone from WLBT. I understand this business was raided for selling sex toys illegally. I just purchased this sex toy, and it is still illegal to sell them in the state of Mississippi. Even though you were raided last year and you’re still selling them, what is your response to that?”

Charles Hobby (store owner): “Where did you buy it at?”

Kandiss: “I bought it here. I just walked in about five minutes ago and I bought this. Don’t you know it’s illegal to sell these?

Hobby: “That’s not one of the required items listed as being prohibited.”

But in fact, it is. Section 97 of Mississippi State Law prohibits the sale of such 3-dimensional devices like the one we were sold.

Hobby: “That’s not a sex toy”

Kandiss: “What would you call this then? It’s a personal vibrator.”

Hobby: “It can be put on your arm, your neck, your leg if it’s hurting or anything. It’s just a vibrator.”
