(WSB-TV) — ATLANTA — First businesses, now customers are suing the city of Sandy Springs over an ordinance that requires people to have a prescription, or a medical or scientific reason, to buy a sexual device.

Melissa Davenport and her attorney, Gerry Weber, filed the suit because they want the government out of the business of regulating private lives.

“(Some people) have this dirty mind about how people are going to use it. People really do need devices because they need it for health reasons and to have a healthy intimate life with their spouse,” Davenport said.

Davenport suffers from multiple sclerosis.
