Just in time for Steak and a Blowjob Day.

Just a week before the time-honored tradition of Steak and a Blowjob Day, Virginia's House of Delegates passed a bill today that will eliminate the unconstitutional ban on oral and anal sex within the state. The ludicrous legislation, which had been kicking around since 1950, had made all sodomy, even acts between consenting married couples, a felony. That's a lot of illegal dick sucking. 

The law has been in a controversial tug-o-war since the 2003 Supreme Court ruling Lawrence v. Texaswhich held that any state could not ban private non-commercial sex between two consenting adults, but Virginia's Republican-lead state legislature had always killed the attempts to update sodomy laws. Until today.

The overturning of the tired sodomy laws, which had implicitly alienated homosexuals and teens, will finally give credence to those ridiculous "Virginia is for Lovers" bumper stickers that crowd the interstate. This is a historical day for anyone who enjoys the pleasures of blowjobs, cunnilingus, and a little back-door. Which, without a show of hands, I can safely say is every human being.
