Sex toys to be sold by the Swedish State pharmacies

Apoteket , the government run pharmacies in Sweden, conducted a study in conjunction with he Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU) (Rights to sexual and health services and sexuality education are key tools in the struggle for a healthier and more equitable society.) last year what products they would most like to see on Apoteket''s shelves, a majority chose dildos and massage oils.

So that is what they will do... or will do starting in May.

Apoteket's spokeswoman Elisabet Linge Bergman said "We are aware that sex is a very important part of everyone's life. It is important to help people in this area, and there is a certain demand for the products."

RFSU has produced a range of sex toys on behalf of Apoteket, which will be available for purchase in 50 of the 950 nationwide stores for a one year trial period. But Apoteket has not yet decided which products to stock.

"We will sell massage oils and dildos. We can't say anything more yet," said Linge Bergman.

Apoteket has a monopoly on the sale of over-the-counter drugs, although Sweden has just started to open up the pharmacy market.

Does that mean they will be available on prescription ?

News from Texas where Dildos are also in the News. Again

Over at the always amusing and frequently irritating Blondesense they take up the Great Texas Dildo Wars of 2008 - " You may have read that a woman's right to masturbate had returned to Texas recently, however the decision is being reheard by the 5th Circuit Court as it upset the Texas AG. " See also The Texas Dildo Wars at Slate and The Great Texas Dildo Wars of 2008 at Alternet.

The Texas Attorney General is of the opinion ..." that because criminal laws are generally based on society's moral judgments about right and wrong, the panel majority's decision could invite substantive-due-process challenges to other, previously uncontroversial criminal prohibitions -- suggesting that laws against incest and bigamy that would be the next to go if women are permitted to buy masturbatory aids in Texas."

Apparently there is a law in Texas about men and chickens ... but you can read about that for yourself.
