consensual sex and distribution of toys for same (progress)|
This is just one of many reasons I recognize no law but my own and go out of my way to screw up things within the government whenever I can. If they'd stay out of my life, I'd stay out of theirs.

It's not a competition, you know...
I don't actually know him, except as a member of the network of dr_memory

I am intrigued...
Score one for the side of good! :-) And oral sex. Definitely a good day. Maybe now the Texans will relax a little bit? ;-)
Ireland is still one of the most sexually repressive countries going - last time I looked, all intercourse except between a married couple is illegal.
Contraception was illegal until sometime in the mid-70's.
My family moved there in '68, I stayed in England. Up until legalisation, I used to smuggle a few hundred contraceptives in several times a year and made a reasonable profit selling them on...
Importation by a foreign visitor was legal (or at least not prosecuted) so long as they were for personal use only.....
Even after legalisation, a number of barriers were in the way - chemists (ie pharmacies) held no stock - often under pressure from local churchmen.
At one stage, they were only available by prescription - which would only be available to married couples, to comply with the above-mentioned law.
This is all quite a long time ago - I suspect the EU has intervened on many or all of these laws.
In a way, I was sorry to hear of the de-criminalisation - I lost all those free holidays and the extra income....
Huzzah! I love to see laws like this go down.
And i'm so not making the moral imperative follow-up joke to that statement right now.
Watch me not make it.
Admire my restraint.
