HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — An Alabama adult store claiming it’s the first in the country to offer a drive-up window selling sex toys is set to open this weekend.

According to reports, owner Sherri Williams said her Pleasures retail store is offering the car service in part to decrease the stigma normally associated with adult stores.

"The real essence of what I'm trying to get across is adult stores don't have to be hidden in back alleys. Obviously we wouldn't be doing as well as we are if no one enjoyed shopping here,” Williams said.

The one stop romance shop is located in a former bank building and provides three drive-through lanes and offers a menu of toys, lubricants, stimulants all sold in plain, brown paper bags.

The complex will also provide The Intimacy Clinic, offering weekly seminars, marriage counseling and complimentary condoms.

In 2007 Williams' store captured the national spotlight when it challenged a state ban on sex toys claiming it violated the constitutional right to privacy. The case ultimately reached the Supreme Court. But Alabama’s ban has a medical loophole that allows residents to buy sex toys prescribed by a doctor.

Customers must fill out a detailed form citing their health reasons for buying the sex products and can only buy the items if the reason is considered "a bona fide medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial or law enforcement purpose."
