The Texas Penal Code understands that an “Obscene device” means a device including a dildo or artificial vagina, designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs. So, because the law considers dildos obscene devices, and a person who owns more than six obscene devices is committing a criminal offense, therefore, owning 6 dildos (or plastic vaginas) is illegal.
Texas bans the possession of or promoting the use of more than six dildos. The law in question appears to be aimed at adult performances, as it spells out use in a “play, motion picture, dance, or other exhibition performed before an audience.”

You can’t own more than 6 dildos 😮
Dildo's illegal in Texas? Apparently so. Let me get this straight... in a state where you can carry loaded firearms on your hip, if you get caught with more than 6 dildos or other "pleasure devices", it's a FELONY? Absolutely amazing. Texas is like a whole other country. It also helps explain a lot. (via obscurestore)
Re: Alyssa Milano claims Texas has a law banning a woman from “owning six dildos” She seems to be upset over this law because apparently she requires the use of more than 6 dildos to be used simultaneously in order to feel any pleasure during a stimulation session.
