During the next few weeks, I’ll be making a couple trips south of the border to visit the good ol’ U.S. of A. Since ignorance is no excuse for violating the law, I decided to look up a few sex-related statutes to ensure that none of my carnal impulses lead to an international incident. Here are a few of the bawdy prohibitions I discovered:

In Oblong, Illinois it’s against the law to have sex on your wedding day while hunting or fishing.

In parts of Virgina they will throw the book at you if you get it on while the sun’s up, with the lights on OR with your socks on.

In Arizona it’s all things in moderation, phalluses included. It is illegal to have more than two dildos in one house.

One town in Florida has declared it illegal to shower while naked. Tobias Funke would approve!

      It’s true! While I was researching this post, New Jersey was one of the few states that doesn’t seem to have any bizzarro sex laws at all!

      Now all you need is for Gov. Christie to get with the same-sex marriage program and you’re set!

        Well the scoop on that is that yes, Christie will veto the legislation that passed in the state senate. But he will let it go to a vote in November and let the people of NJ decide, and it will most likely become law.

        Our feeling is that he either doesn’t care about it or is secretly for same sex marriage. He is a Republican who’s most likely going to be a VP running mate and very likely a candidate for president in 2016. It would be bad for his “image”. Whatever.

        In the meantime they do recognize civil unions and same sex couples can use their partners benefits etc. I work with a few people whose partners use the hospital benefits as well.

        As I am typing this Baby Bear is taking a giant shit in my lap….. Sigh.

          Maybe Baby Bear is expressing his feelings about the veto. :-)

          While it’s good that the people of NJ will likely pass marriage equality legislation, I don’t think that matters regarding civil rights should ever be determined by public opinion. Minority groups should not have their rights decided by the opnion of the majority.
