After hearing about the fact that we have some very weird laws regarding sex/intimacy all around the world, I decided to investigate and so here are my top 10 weirdos.
1) On the wrong tracks!
Seems like a miscarriage of justice – but lovers face fines for kissing on Austria’s trains.The £42 penalties were brought in to prevent “discourteous behaviour” after moans that amorous passengers were losing track of common decency. Conductors also have the power to kick offending couples off the train.
2) Just married!
Honeymooners would be wise to avoid hiring a car in Eboli, Italy, just south of Naples… because kissing in a moving vehicle here can carry a fine of up to £415.
3) In hot water!
In 1985, officials in Swaziland banned couples from making love in a hot spring called Cuddle Puddle. Ministers threatened couples with fines and even jail for “having sexual intercourse underwater”.
4) A step too far!
Under a centuries-old law, couples in Birmingham, Alabama, can be fined for disorderly conduct if they have sex “on the steps of any church after the sun goes down”.
But the law says nothing about getting intimate in daylight. 😉
5) Wild about animals!
An antiquated law in Iran that’s still on the statute books permits men to have sex with certain types of domestic animals. But it forbids any sexual contact with wild animals – particularly lionesses.
Also..In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.
6) Blinking Barmy
In Ottumwa, Iowa, men are banned from winking at women they don’t know while they are within the city limits.
7) Just a small one
The married women of La Paz, Bolivia, are allowed to sip just one glass of wine in a public bar or restaurant. The ruling claims that women who have more than that to drink are “morally and sexually lax”, and they can be divorced by their husbands if they are caught over-indulging.
8) Baaaa none
Most Middle Eastern countries recognize the following Islamic law: “After having sexual relations with a lamb, it is a mortal sin to eat its flesh.”
9) She came with a bang!
In Connorsville, Wisconsin, it’s illegal for a man to shoot off a gun when his female partner has an orgasm.
10) Beep beep beep!
It’s safe to make love while parked in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Police officers aren’t allowed to walk up and knock on the window. Any suspicious officer who thinks that sex is taking place must drive up from behind, honk his horn three times and wait approximately two minutes before getting out of his car to investigate.
Well I just can’t get my breath at number 8, words fail me!!…and as for number 9, I think I would like the sound of my partner shooting his gun (if he had one) when I have an orgasm, it would be a sign of his celebration and excitement at my ravenous primal bucking. (He does love to see me come.) Although I don’t think the neighbours would like it, disturbing them two or three times a night, seven days a week! 😉
