Blue Balls and Intercourse PA were a part of a famous court case in 1962. Ralph Ginzberg started "Eros" Magazine as an "art magazine," but was hauled into court when the nude pictures (including those of Marilyn Monroe) appeared in it. Ginzberg's intentions became key to the case, because he had originally tried to mail it from Intercourse, PA, but that town had no post office, so his second choice was Blue Balls. Once the Federal Court got this information, they convicted him of obscenity and closed down Eros after only 4 issues.
We have a Plymouth Rd. in Michigan.....
sounds like PA's the place to go.
I live in Novi MI. Plenty of auto history around the area.

I heard that the name Novi came from the old milestone on the national road that ran through there, it was number 6, or NO VI in Roman....and from Novi came the name of the Novi engine...anyone else heard this story?
God, I even work in Desoto, Ks - forgot all about that one!
