You don't say!!!

Being a paralegal I am often fascinated by laws around the world, today after a night of drinking and waking up to nothing but horrible self inflicted pain, I decided to search the net for some "Strange Sex Laws"...I was inspired to do so by [blog sexyfitwoman] and sassybelle21 in their latest of posts...
So welcome to:

Strange SexLaws 101

Did you know...

-- In Oblong, Illinois, it's punishable by law to make love while
hunting or fishing on your wedding day.

-- In Minnesota, it is illegal for any man to have sexual intercourse
with a live fish. (Apparently it's OK for woman.)

-- 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.

-- Warn your hubby that after lovemaking in Ames, Iowa, he isn't
allowed to take more than three gulps of beer while lying in bed with
you -- or holding you in his arms.

-- Bozeman, Montana, has a law that bans all sexual activity between
members of the opposite sex in the front yard of a home after sundown --
if they're nude.

-- In hotels in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, every room is required to
have twin beds. And the beds must always be a minimum of two feet apart
when a couple rents a room for only one night. And it's illegal to make
love on the floor between the beds!

-- The owner of every hotel in Hastings, Nebraska, is required to
provide each guest with a clean and pressed nightshirt. No couple, even
if they are married, may sleep together in the nude. Nor may they have
sex unless they are wearing one of these clean, white cotton

-- An ordinance in Newcastle, Wyoming, specifically bans couples from
having sex while standing inside a store's walk-in meat freezer!

-- A state law in Illinois mandates that all bachelors should be called
master, not mister, when addressed by their female counterparts.

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

-- In Merryville, Missouri, women are prohibited from wearing corsets
because "the privilege of admiring the curvaceous, unencumbered body of
a young woman should not be denied to the normal, red-blooded American

-- It's safe to make love while parked in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Police
officers aren't allowed to walk up and knock on the window. Any
suspicious officer who thinks that sex is taking place must drive up
from behind, honk his horn three times and wait approximately two
minutes before getting out of his car to investigate.

-- A law in Helena, Montana, mandates that a woman can't dance on a
table in a saloon or bar unless she has on at least three pounds, two
ounces of clothing. (Ouch! These pasties hurt!)

-- Anywhere in the U.S., it's illegal to use any live endangered
species, excepting insects, in public or private sexual displays, shows
or exhibits depicting cross-species sex. (Insectophiles apparently were
successful in their lobbying efforts.)

-- Lovers in Liberty Corner, New Jersey, should avoid satisfying their
lustful urges in a parked car. If the horn accidentally sounds while
they are frolicking behind the wheel, the couple can face a jail term.

-- In Carlsbad, New Mexico, it's legal for couples to have sex in a
parked vehicle during their lunch break from work, as long as the car or
van has drawn curtains to stop strangers from peeking in.

-- Women aren't allowed to wear patent-leather shoes in Cleveland, Ohio
- a man might see the reflection of something "he oughtn't!"

-- No woman may have sex with a man while riding in an ambulance within
the boundaries of Tremonton, Utah. If caught, the woman can be charged
with a sexual misdemeanor and "her name is to be published in the local
newspaper." The man isn't charged nor is his name revealed.

-- It is illegal for any member of the Nevada Legislature to conduct
official business wearing a penis costume while the legislature is in

What strange sex laws could you NOT live without..or which one of these buggers have I missed?...there is more but the blog space is only so darn big!

What's scary is that either people have done these at one time or another or spent time and money lobbying for these laws.

My sex law: find that combination that brings sexuality and sesuality to the fore, seek to liberate your body, find teh orgasims that linger inside, desparate to be released...

In Arlington, TX (where I grew up), it used to be illegal to have premarital seI'm not sure if it has been thrown off the books). The law was enacted when Arlington was called Johnson Station and it wanted to keep the houses of ill repute from springing up like they had done in Fort Worth and Dallas at the time (late 1880's-90's). And the local citizenry was more concerned about Fort Worth, known for its infamous 'Hell's Half Acre' district. Needless to say, I know of no recent enforcement of that law

I found out about the fish thing in Minnesota the hard way. I was told I enjoyed eating it too much that it must have been sexual.

Too funny.... I was watching some late show like a year ago and they covered a lot of the off the wall ones... If I remember correctly there is one state where it is illegal to ahve sex with first cousins. Also there is one where it is illegal(and punishable by 5 years in prison)to have sex with a virgin... I thought that was hilarious... So if you have never had sex you would technically by state law have to leave the state to do so....? That's jsut crazy... I would go to the state line and have sex on both sides just for the fuck of it.... That is... I would if I were still a

Great blog. I am amazed at the research. Did you know that in the military, you CAN NOT be charged with your wife. Also in the military IT IS illegal to have any sex that is not in the missionary position.

How funny. So did you find any strange ones for Texas?

I think Oklahoma still has one on the books prohibiting a woman from wearing a bikini while hitchhiking.

There simply have got to be some great true storys behind the inspiration for many of these ridiculous laws.

-- Bozeman, Montana, has a law that bans all sexual activity between
members of the opposite sex in the front yard of a home after sundown --
if they're nude.

So if they are clothed or are the same sex it's OK?

-- An ordinance in Newcastle, Wyoming, specifically bans couples from
having sex while standing inside a store's walk-in meat freezer!

You just know there's a real life story to go with that one.

What's really scary is that some sick guy fucked a fish enough that they had to pass a law.

And they talk about rednecks.....LMFAO

I'm wondering how old these laws are, what were the events leading up to them becoming laws, and when was the last time they were enforced?!?!?!?

Oh, and one comment: I thought this was the land of FREEDOM. Wait a sec... I get it now! That's just propaganda!

I think there was a time, not too long ago, that oral sex was illegal in some states... I could never have lived there...

Incidentally... sex on most beaches in greece is legal, to the best of my knowledge... ~wink~
