Virginia really is for loversnow. The Virginia House of Delegates voted, 100 to 0, to strike down an antiquated sodomy ban from the books. The Republican-controlled Senate, unanimously voted to allow the citizens of Virginia to practice anal and oral sex. Previous attempts to repeal the law failed as recently as 2003, but now the legislation will head to Governor Terry McAuliffe who will sign the new legislation.
