Sex and Sports: Witty Team Names or Vulgar Innuendos?

In an adult recreational sports league, do you think team names should be censored or restricted in anyway?

This has recently been the case in Calgary where recreational teams with offensive or sexually suggestive names will not be allowed to play on City property.  This new by-law has proven to be quite controversial in the city and the debate rages on.

Certainly, a firm line can (and should) be drawn for any name that even borders on racist, sexist or homophobic references. But, what about sexual innuendos? Would a ban on sexual content make us prudish or proper?

NOTE: All of these teams play in either a co-ed or women’s only league and all participants are 18+.

Did these names make you laugh or make you angry? We want to hear about it. Leave us a comment below!
