“There is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one’s genitals,” his legal team argued....
...Cruz and his team argued that...using (sex toys)... was akin to “hiring a willing prostitute or engaging in consensual bigamy.”
...Cruz observed that the law itself did not prevent people from using dildos or artificial vaginas in the privacy of their own homes, but unlike Lawrence v. Texas, the landmark Supreme Court case striking down laws prohibiting certain types of consensual sex, “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.”
Sadly for Cruz, and thankfully for the world, his argument was struck down and the law overturned.
...Cruz’s former roommate at Princeton, Craig Mazin, who is no fan of the Texas senator, was as surprised as anyone that Cruz had once fought the right to masturbate. “I was his college roommate. This would be a new belief of his,” he tweeted Wednesday.
