CALL TO ACTION!
For five years, an agency of the City of Phoenix has been raiding and harassing swingers’ clubs under a local ordinance that makes it a crime to “operate a live sex act business.” Recently, a gay men’s bathhouse was also raided under that ordinance. These actions fly directly in the face of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, in Lawrence v. Texas, that governments cannot take action against private sexual expression solely to impose moral views on its citizens. This ordinance has no legitimate justification. Moreover, its enforcement has discriminatively targeted sexual minorities—swingers, Gay, Lesbian, BDSM, and Transgender clubs—while ignoring businesses (like adult motels) that obviously fall within the terms of this ordinance

Nothing sexual about nudist teens? Right!
It makes me a bit freaked out that Michelle Jones – or more particularly, Michelle Jones’ parents – do not think of nudity as “a sexual thing.” Admittedly, the obsession teenagers have with clothing – what’s hot and what’s not, what’s dopey and what’s cool – is a part of adolescence that turns the stomach of most parents. ...

Phoenix is free of crime again . . . or maybe not
Turns out I was slightly mistaken. But understandably so, I believe. I had what looked like prima facie evidence in the form of a police raid on private members-only establishments where people participate in what is called the "swingers" lifestyle.
I figured that if the police were willing to expend the resources to investigate people who don't harm anyone and city officials were willing to spend taxpayer money on the law enforcement effort, then the only logical explanation is that there are no other serious crimes being committed......
