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. (Like THAT makes sense.)
In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's
genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during
the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.
(It would make one hope you never need surgery!)
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.
(A brick, why not a refrigerator?)
The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.
(Whoa! That would make for a whole bunch headless jerkoffs.)
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. (Let's
just think for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the
world that even comes close to this?)
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. (Ah! Justice!) Topless saleswomen are legal
in Liverpool, England - but only in tropical fish stores. (But
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. (Makes one shudder at the thought.)
In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have
sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time. (This was
a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?)
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 for consumption on the premises." (Is this a great
country or what? ... This is definitely a great country but
I think my job is waiting for me in Guam.)
