A list of most strange laws on love in different countries. post #1  quote:



Legal attitudes to sexual life, found in different countries, may be that strange, that it?s hard to get how the lawmakers could have adopted such laws.
One of most fundamental rules of Islam is still in force in different countries of Middle East: it?s illegal to eat flesh of a sheep once you had had a sexual relationship with. A man, who eats up such sheep, commits a deadly sin and can?t get after death to heaven where 70 virgins are to live with men.
In Lebanon, taking into account that almost half of the population are Christians, men are officially allowed to have sex with animals. There is an important restriction: the animals must be females. To have sex with a male animal is a criminal offence punished by death. In Indonesia people are beheaded for masturbation.
A male gynecologist in Bahrain can do medical examination looking onto a mirror only.
On Guam ? a US possession in the Pacific there?s a special occupation ? deflorator. This specialist travels on the country and provides the service of defloration to the virgins. This looks like the most exotic occupation in the world. But the career opportunity seems uncertain.
In Hong-Kong a wife is allowed to kill her unfaithful husband on the condition she does it with her bare hands, without arms of any kind. The husband?s mistress may be killed in any way.
In Kali town of Columbia a woman is allowed to have sex with her husband only, and, when it takes place for the first time, the bride?s mother must be present to witness that the first act of sex has taken place.
In Santa-Cruz of Bolivia a man can?t make love with a woman and a daughter of hers simultaneously.
In Estonian capital, Tallinn it?s illegal to play chess during sexual intercourse. Maybe, that is some ill local custom.
There is a law in an Italian town of Tropea which defines who can be naked on a public beach. ?Women, who are ugly or fat are forbidden to be naked on a beach? This right is reserved only to ?young women who deserve to be considered examples of women?s beauty?. In Palermo women are allowed to be naked on the beach but men aren't: "Men's anatomy can get a vulgar appearance even unintentionally". But that should be considered natural when there're so many naked women around.
There are also many strange laws in the USA. In Arizona it?s illegal to have more then two dildos at home. It?s forbidden in Colorado to kiss a woman when she?s asleep, and kissing your wife on Sunday is illegal in Hartford, Connecticut. Only missioner?s position is legally allowed in Florida, kissing woman?s breasts during an act of sex is also an offence there. In Massachusetts a woman is not meant to have sex in ?rider?s? position. Women can?t have lacquered shoes on their feet in Ohio since they may reflect their underwear for other people?s view.

post #5  quote:

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

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. (Apparently, if you wear socks, you're safe from the law!)

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 nightshirts.

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 Norfolk, Virginia, a woman can't go out without wearing a corset. (There was a civil-service job -- for men only -- called a corset inspector.)

However, 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 male."

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.

Another 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.

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.

A Florida sex law: If you're a single, divorced, or widowed woman, you can't parachute on Sunday afternoons.

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.

post #6  quote:

Use of condoms in different states of the USA is restricted. The lawmakers, paying no attention to the danger of HIV and other deceases, erect barriers for the population to buy condoms. Condoms are forbidden for use at all in Connecticut, they may be sold under the counter only in Wisconsin, and can’t be advertised in California. But the strangest law is in Louisiana: only women can buy condoms there, men are fined for substantial sums for doing this.
