No uncomplicated sex, please, we’re British
: The British have passed a sex law. Public sex was going to be outlawed, but it isn’t (who do they think they are, French?).
The proposed legislation sweeps away offences such as buggery, gross indecency and soliciting by men. Ministers have conceded that men having sex in a public lavatory – “cottaging” – could have avoided prosecution if they were in a cubicle with the door closed….
Private homes were to be exempt from the new law, but having sex in a private garden which could be seen from the street, would have been a crime.
