Hey readers,
My name is Liz and I am a freelance writer working on an article for Playgirl magazine about teens and sex toys. In the article, I'm discussing how it is illegal for teens to buy sex toys, and how that is unfair, given that the media is obsessed with the sexuality of underage women and that it discrimates against girls who want to experiment with their sexuality. I was hoping to get some opinions from teens for the article (I asked Heather and she gave me permission to post this interview request here).
So, below are my interview questions. I would love it if you could e-mail me with some answers or thoughts, at liz.funk@gmail.com
Thanks so much!!!
Liz

Questions:
1. What is your thought on the laws preventing the sale of sex toys to teens?
2. Do you know anyone who is trying to change these laws or do something about it?
3. Have you been able to buy sex toys despite the laws preventing it?
4. Other thoughts?

(Just FYI? I talked to Liz on the phone for an hour this morning, and she is seriously awesome. She's also the same age as or just a little bit older than most lot of you, yet has a pretty impressive page of clips. I'd encourage you to chime in both to be heard on these issues, but also to support a peer who is clearly very motivated and doing a bang-up job!)

Generally, the same places that sell female toys will also cater to males.

But, you're not legal to do so yet, so consider responding with a piece of your mind!
