Strange Laws on Sexual Behaviour

Wierd Laws that Really Go Way Over My Head

I came across an article stating that a woman had been held in custody for breaching the law against "noisy sex". In all fairness, the private business of a couple making love is more often than not, amongst the least desirable to the other person (other than those involved). This led to yours truly launching a fully-fledged investigation on the subject (Online that is...) More on the story from the link at the end of the article.

"In Nevada sex without a condom is considered illegal."-Now yours truly asks, how do they keep the human race going over there? This is stranger than fiction. One wonders what the situation was before the invention of the condom!

"No man is allowed to make love to his wife with the smell of garlic, onions, or sardines on his breath in Alexandria, Minnesota. If his wife so requests, law mandates that he must brush his teeth." Yours truly comments-"fair enough! (Wonder if the reverse is true.) The smell of garlic should be totally outlawed!"


"In London, it's illegal to have sex on a parked motorcycle."- Well, would that not depend on where the motorcycle is parked? Say for instance, it is parked in your bedroom just between the bed and the closet? A bit more clarity on the location would make this a more effective law- me thinks. All in all, yours truly, truly here objects!

"In Oblong, Illinois, it's punishable by law to make love while
Hunting or fishing on your wedding day."
-Me thinks...why would one want to go fishing on their wedding day? Who comes up with such an idea and what are they on? That's what I would love to know. I presume it is fine to do so if it's not on your wedding day?

"In Oxford, Ohio, it's illegal for a woman to strip off her clothing while standing in front of a man's picture."- Now, this one totally goes way over my head. I cannot begin to get the long and short of this one.

"An ordinance in Newcastle, Wyoming, specifically bans couples from having sex while standing inside a store's walk-in-meat freezer!"- Well, is this to specifically say, it is all right anywhere else in the store-say the candy section? Totally beyond me again!

Enough on those, and now other strange laws that may have been written "under the influence of some influential substance"

" In Florida, if an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle."- One wonders, do they casually stroll around with elephants in Florida? I know we don't do so in Africa.

"In fire-sensitive Chicago, it is against the law to eat in an establishment that is on fire."- "Wow, umm, I will have a steak, very rare, I am pretty sure it will be well done by the time it gets here."

It's a strange world...
