HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Don't worry about a burgers and fries, a new drive thru is more for grown-ups.

Alabama is once again on the map for bizarre news, but this time it involves a Huntsville adult store selling items through a drive thru window.

Huntsville store "Pleasures" is staying true to it's slogan "it's a one stop romance shop."

No meals are on the menu, only toys, stimulants and marital aids.

It's the first adult store drive thru window in the country and it's drawing plenty attention.

Call it a novel idea, store owner Sherri Williams is somewhat of a visionary.

"I provided a drive through so you can shop from the privacy of your car. You don't have to worry about running into your neighbor or even your preacher," she said.

She's putting the finishing touches on a brand new, expanded location for pleasures.

The three drive thru lanes were already in place after a bank moved out.

"When I opened up, in a town like this, I opened because women and couples needed a place to shop," said Williams.  But being open and selling adult toys for 17 years has come with challenges.

It is against Alabama law to sell sex toys.

Williams has been trying to appeal to the Supreme Court for years to remove the ban.

The only loophole is that customers can purchase toys if they have a medical reason.

Pleasures can now offer couples therapy, a sexual health library and clinic.

You can even get free condoms through the drive thru.

The owner believes this is just another way to educate the community about sexual health.
