17 bizarre sex laws that you won’t believe actually still exist
PinkNews takes a slighlty NSFW look at some at the strangest and scariest laws that still exist across the globe.
1 London – no sex on a motorcycle
In London, it’s illegal to have sex on a parked motorcycle.
2 Hong Kong – hell hath no fury…
Over in Hong Kong, if a man cheats on his wife, she is permitted to kill him – but only with her bare hands. Gentlemen, you have been warned.
3 Wisconsin – out of sight, out of mind
The first of a few questionable US entries – sodomy and beastality are fine in this state, but only if it isn’t “observable”.
4 Thailand – bitch, please!
In Thailand, it’s illegal to have sex with a female dog – but you’ll face an even harsher sentence if the dog is in heat.
5 China – naked truth
A woman is not allowed to be naked in a hotel room – except when she’s in the bathroom… obviously!
6 Alabama – batteries not included
Sex toys are completely illegal in this state – bummer.
7 Lebanon – no words
Bestiality is apparently still legal here – unless, of course, its with a male animal.
8 Sweden – say cheese!
Although you can pose topless in photo booths, the Swedish won’t allow you to take a cheeky pic of your private parts.
9 California – not today, Satan!
Unless you’re wearing a condom. In Bakersfield, it’s forbidden to have sex with the devil – unless you use protection.
10 Minnesota – something smells fishy
In Minnesota, it’s against the law to have sex with a live fish. Dead ones, on the other hand… excuse us while we go projectile vomit.
11 Minnesota (again) – sleeping beauty
No sleeping in the nude here either – best go get yourself a new onesie!
12 Maryland – get a room!
You aren’t allowed to kiss for more than a minute in public here – better be quick!
13 Indonesia – no going solo
Masturbation is banned in the country and could see you locked up for a total of 32 months.
14 Michigan – put a ring on it
No shacking up — or as they call it, lewd and lascivious cohabiting — allowed in Michigan. You could be imprisoned for a year and fined $1,000.
15 Dubai – marital bliss
Extramarital sex could see you thrown in prison in Dubai – best not, eh?
16 Budapest – lights out
