Woman Faces Charge for Selling Sex Toys

By ANGELA K. BROWN, Associated Press Writer

CLEBURNE, Texas - Joanne Webb intended to spice up marriages and earn extra cash by selling erotic toys.

Instead, the former fifth-grade teacher and executive board member of the Burleson Chamber of Commerce (news - web sites) faces criminal charges and embarrassment after a police sting.

"It's ludicrous to think that the government can step into our bedrooms," said Webb, who has been married 20 years and has three children.

Webb was one of 3,000 consultants for Passion Parties, a San Francisco-based company whose representatives set up Tupperware-type parties for women who feel more comfortable buying marital aids (news - web sites) in a private home than at an adult bookstore or on the Internet.

"We're doing a wonderful service, and we're not doing anything wrong," company President Pat Davis said.

A consultant since June and the first Passion Parties' consultant charged with obscenity in the company's 10-year history, Webb was charged with a misdemeanor under the state's obscenity law.

Adult stores sell sex toys around the law by posting signs that say "sold only as novelties." Webb didn't do that and faces up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine if convicted.

Her attorney, BeAnn Sisemore, planned to file a motion Tuesday to dismiss the case on grounds the law violates someone's right to own a sexual device, which is not illegal.

Webb has taken a leave of absence from the chamber of commerce until the case is settled. She declined to say Monday if she plans to keep hosting parties.

"These devices that I sell are marital aids, and I want to help couples stay together," Webb said.

Daniel :

If John Stossel's program ''Sex, Drugs and Consenting Adults'' ever comes up on ABC News again, you should see it. Stossel presents a ''libertarian'' case for legalizing drugs, prostitution, by saying it's none of the government's business.

I read in 1991 that in Australia a brothel(whore house or ''house of "$/?& repute'')was sponsoring an Australian Rules Football team. Maybe the Impact could have done that in 2001 after Ionian pulled out;)))

Could you imagine if a porn website became the official sponsor of a team and had their name on the jersey? I once had a Southampton jersey when Draper Tools was the sponsor. The "D" fell off after some good usage, so you can guess what sort of comments I got for wearing it still.
