Bizarre sex laws

STUDIES

When the G10 women demanded a sex boycott all over Kenya, one might have thought the call as crazy as they get, but apparently countries all over the world have sex laws that are crazier than the demands for a simple boycott.

Sample the following:

1

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.

2

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.

3

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman’s genitals, but is forbidden from looking directly at them during the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.

4

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also applies to undertakers; the sex organs of the deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.

5

Most Middle Eastern countries observe the following Islamic law: "After having sexual relations with a lamb, it is a mortal sin to eat its flesh."

6

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time. Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.

7

In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens her mother must be in the room to witness the act.

8

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time.

9

In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only "in places where alcoholic beverages are sold on the premises."

10

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. (The husband’s lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.)
