If you’re planning a dirty weekend away with bae, then you need to research the laws of whichever country you are going to, in order to ensure that your s*xual activities don’t land you in hot water.
While most laws around s*x are obvious and very necessary, everywhere from the USA and China through to Thailand and Birmingham have some more obscure guidelines.
In some places, copulating on a parked motorcycle is a no-no; while in others, you can only have s*x if you’re wearing contraception.
So, here we go…
London: It’s illegal to have s*x on a parked motorcycle.
Alabama (USA): S*x toys are completely illegal in this state. Head to Arizona, where two sex toys are permitted. Once it’s more than two, you risk prosecution.
Again, no female wearing a night gown can be taken for a flight on a private plane.
Bakersfield, California (USA): You cannot have s*x here unless you’re wearing a condom. So, get your rubber sheath ahead of time!
Indiana (USA): Oral s*x is totally banned here, so don’t worry if you forget your mouthwash.
China: Women are prohibited from walking around a hotel room in the nude. A woman may be n*ked only while in the bathroom.
Minnesota (USA): It is illegal to have s*x with a live fish here! Also, you can’t sleep naked in Minnesota; so, do not forget that!
And, no matter how tiring that post-s*x glow is, get dressed before you drift off. It’s for your own good.
Halethorpe, Maryland (USA): You aren’t allowed to kiss for more than a minute in public here, so be sure to have an accurate stopwatch if you fancy a bit of public display of affection with bae.
Idaho (USA): Things are a bit more laid back here – you can engage in public display of affection for a whopping 18 minutes! In any case, by the time you reach the passionate heights of necking for 18 minutes, you would have moved things to a private room anyway.
Georgia (USA): The potpourri of s*x laws here are so damning that you’ll wonder if you’re still in America or somewhere else! For instance, s*x out of marriage is still against the law here; so, if you and a new lover are looking for a destination for a dirty weekend, rule this one out.
It is illegal in Georgia to purchase or possess s*x toys such as vibrators, dildos, etc.
Sodomy laws have been repealed or are ignored in most states, but not Georgia, where a man was sentenced to five years in prison for engaging in oral s*x. With his wife. With her consent. In their home.
Wisconsin (USA): No man shall shoot off a gun while his female partner is having a sexual orgasm. Killjoys.
Birmingham (UK): It is illegal for a man and woman to have s*x “on the steps of any church after the sun goes down.”
Thailand: The fine for a man who has sex with a female dog is higher if the dog is in heat.
Nepal, Bangladesh and Macao: It is against the law to view movies containing simulated love-making or the pubic area of men and women. The law also does not allow kisses to be shown in any film that includes actors from this country.
Spain: In 17th century Spain, it was illegal for anyone other than a woman’s husband to see her bare feet. A woman could freely expose her breasts, but feet were considered s*xual and had to be covered in the presence of men other than her husband.
Illinois (USA): Having an erection in public is very much illegal. Thank you.
Liverpool, United Kingdom: Women can sell items and be topless in public, but only in tropical fish stores.
