State laws against bigamy,same-sex marriage,adult incest,prostitution,masturbation,adultery,fornication, bestiality,and obscenity are likewise sustainable only in light of Bowers validation of laws based on moral choices.. Every single one of these laws is called into question by today s decision;the Court makes no effort to cabin the scope of its decision to exclude them from its holding.
No more watching COPS on Saturday night when they sting prostitutes, or drug deals. Claim "consenting adults" and maybe you can get away with any crime!! Imagine 2 guys masturbating each other outside the school! They are in their car & are consenting adults. You can't touch this. Don't call the police.

Maybe watching people get arrested for consensual crimes arouses your fascist impulses, but some of us believe such laws to be ridiculous and against the very spirit of liberty.

Interesting that you bring this up given that the primary basis for overturning the law was "privacy" concerns. Two guys masturbating in a car in front of a school would hardly be an act committed in "privacy", and certainly wouldn't be analagous to the USSC decision.
