Ted Cruz says he will not ban dildos and other sexual toys if he becomes president.
In a Mother Jones story earlier this week, it was revealed that Cruz defended a state ban on the sale of dildos as Texas' solicitor general.
« There is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one's genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship, » a brief co-authored by Cruz read.
Cruz, asked by WABC radio host and Curtis Sliwa if he would ban « the sale of sexual toys, dildo as anything that sexually stimulates you, » answered that he would not.
« Look, of course not, it's a ridiculous question and of course not, » Cruz told Sliwa on Friday. « What people do in their own private time with themselves is their own business and it's none of government's business. »
