Bill would make sex toys illegal in South Carolina

(Columbia-AP) April 21, 2006 - A state lawmaker wants to ban the sale of sex toys.

Republican Representative Ralph Davenport of Boiling Springs proposed the bill that would add sex toys to the state's obscenity laws. Davenport's bill would make it a felony to sell devices used primarily for sexual stimulation.

The proposal also would allow law enforcement to seize sex toys as contraband.

Davenport wouldn't talk to The Associated Press Friday about his bill.

Davenport's home county of Spartanburg has been aggressive in recent months in pursuing charges against owners of adult-oriented businesses. Police there say, however, they are uncertain how Davenport's proposal would help their investigations.
