When it comes to a strictly business travel arrangement, this information is of no consequence to you. However, if you're looking for a little more from your vacation in the way of romance, then you're definitely going to want to read up on the information below. Turns out, some countries are WEIRD AF when it comes to their sex laws. I'm not talking about banning crazy stuff like whipping out your junk in public, that's just a given. This stuff feels borderline invasive!
According to the New York Post the following global destinations are not messing around when it comes to YOU messing around—
- Films depicting nudity are banned in Nepal.
- You can't kiss on public transport in Vienna, Austria without being fined.
- It's possible to fined and imprisoned for public kissing in India.
- It's illegal to have sex on a parked motorbike in London.
- Women can go to jail for up to 2-years in Egypt for committing adultery, men can carry out their much lesser* 6 month adultery sentence at home.
- No public displays of affection are warranted in Qatar.
- It has been widely reported on the internet that it is illegal to own more than six dildos in Texas.
- Same sex marriage is not recognized in Dubai—subsequently homosexuality is illegal entirely.
- Additionally in Dubai, sex outside of marriage is punishable by prosecution, imprisonment and/or a fine and deportation. You also cannot live together, or to share the same hotel room, with someone of the opposite sex to whom you aren’t married or closely related.
- In Singapore, a person can even get arrested for walking around their hotel room naked.
To be fair, some of these I understand—like no sex on a parked motorbike, but some of them are actually pretty damn infuriating. Why do women receive a 2-year sentence for adultery in Egypt while men get a measly 6-months that they have the option of serving out at home? Seems like some BS to me, Egypt! It takes two to tango, after all.
