We here at JACK FM know that the best time to listen to the radio is in your car. Isn’t it perfect? Windows rolled down, [lastfm]Marvin Gaye[/lastfm] playing your favorite song, driving up to window #2 to pick up your favorite sex toy, coffee in the cup holder… Wait, what??

Well, if you’re from Alabama it may not seem like such an odd request after all.

Pleasures, a “one-stop romance shop” in Huntsville, Alabama now offers a service to expedite all of your sexy needs. They have a drive-through window were patrons can sign up, sing off, and pick up their condoms, lube, stimulants, or clothes – but NO PORNO TAPES. Owner Sherri Williams draws the line there because Alabama has a law banning sex toys. So how do they get away with this?

It seems there is an exception to the ban – as long as the items are designed for the “stimulation of human genital organs” if the sale was for “a bona fide medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial or law enforcement purpose.”

Don’t worry, Dougie. We’re sure that whip you wanted is for medical purposes only. Californians have been using that excuse for years.

Think that’s weird? Congruity, Pennsylvania doesn’t think so. They had a drive-through window back in the year 2000. But Climax Gentleman’s Club isn’t a romance shop – it’s a strip club, and for $10/hour you can watch Candi all you want through that teeny, tiny little window. Just don’t keep that line of cars behind you waiting too long, Dougie.
