Say What?

by Olivia Starke

I got bored the other day and decided to look up some wacky sex laws. I thought I’d share some of the best with you.

In Bozeman, Montana, you can't perform any sexual acts in the front yard of any home, after sundown, and if you are nude.

A law in Oblong, Illinois makes it a crime to make love while fishing or hunting on your wedding day.

In the state of Washington there is a law against having sex with a virgin under any circumstances (including the wedding night).

In Texas, sixteen-year old divorced girls are prohibited from talking about sex during high school extracurricular activities.

Clinton, Oklahoma, has a law against masturbating while watching two people having sex in a car.

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.

In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act.

In Romboch, Virginia, it is illegal to engage in sexual activity with the lights on.

In Minnesota, it is illegal for a man to have intercourse with a live fish.

It is illegal to have oral sex in Missouri.

In Arkansas oral sex is considered to be sodomy.

In New York women may go topless in public, providing it is not being used as a business.

Connorsville, Wisconsin, it's against the law for a man to shoot off a gun when his female partner has an orgasm.

Oxford, Ohio, it's illegal for a woman to strip off her clothing while standing in front of a man's picture.

Tremonton, Utah, no woman is allowed to have sex with a man while riding in an ambulance. 
In addition to normal charges, the woman's name will be published in the local newspaper.

In Arizona you may not have more than two dildos in a house.

Blurb: Ashley Adams signed up with the 1NightStand service in hopes of stirring up some cougar passion in her lackluster life. When she meets tall, dark, and oh-so-sexy Justin, the sparks fly. But something deeper lies in their magical connection, something she isn’t prepared for. Will a casual one-night stand change her life forever?

Wow, these ARE weird. And um, having mother in the room to witness? And the fish? Uh...gross.

Jessica E. Subject said...

Some of those make no sense at all, and others were obviously created due to past experiences. I mean, the fish...Really?

I keep thinking about the reasons these laws are on the books. Boggles the imagination. The live fish one weirded me out. A law demanded by PETA? LOL Fun post!

@Steph I put the Minnesota one in there just for you :)

I did some research to make sure these were legit and it seems they are, but the stories behind them aren't quite as fantastic. And the oral sex laws are basically the religious folks repressing sexuality.

I think someone should take a copy of an anatomy textbook to Arkansas. How funny!

Yvonne Nicolas said...

That is one crazy list. Some of them were funny, while others was just plain ole gross.

Megan@Riverina Romantics said...

These are insane!

D L Jackson said...

Lol. How many law breakers we got out there?
Um, except for the mast fish and mom watching. Ewwwww. I think mom watching should be considered birth control. Talk about going back to the dark ages.

Bianca Swan said...

Beats the hell out of the anti-dueling statute still on the books in SC

Anonymous said...
