Virginia legislature repeals unconstitutional sodomy ban

Virginia is now really for lovers.

Or, as DDM puts it over at WonketteVirginia Laws Against Anal, Oral Sex Go Down, And Now You Can Too!

The Washington Post reports:

More than a decade after the Supreme Court declared such bans unconstitutional, Virginia lawmakers have taken a ban on oral and anal sex out of the state code.

The move is mostly symbolic for private consenting adults. But because of the way the code was written, the “crimes against nature” statute was still being used to prosecute other sex crimes. Former attorney general Ken Cuccinelli II attempted, unsuccessfully, to revive the law under such circumstances last year. The changes passed by the legislature Thursday will include sodomy in code used to prosecute rape, prostitution, sex acts involving children and other uncontested crimes, while limiting “crimes against nature” to bestiality and incest.

The bill passed the House unanimously Thursday after passing the Senate unanimously last month.

‘The law was a terrible, symbolic insult,’ said gay State Sen. Adam Ebbin. ‘It will finally be off the books.’
