Republican presidential candidate Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzCheney drama exposes GOP's Trump rifts Pollster Frank Luntz: 'I would bet on' Trump being 2024 GOP nominee Tim Scott sparks buzz in crowded field of White House hopefuls MORE says he won’t ban the sale of sex toys if he’s president, BuzzFeed News reported Friday

“What people do in their own private time with themselves is their own business and it’s none of the government’s business,” Cruz told WABC radio host Curtis Sliwa. 


Sliwa asked Cruz if he would ban “the sale of sexual toys, dildos, or anything that sexually stimulates you,” after Mother Jones revealed that Cruz defended a ban on the sale of dildos as Texas’s solicitor general. 

“Look, of course not, it’s a ridiculous question, and of course not,” Cruz added. 

A brief co-authored by Cruz at the time said there is no "substantive-due-process right to stimulate one’s genitals."
