Yaaaay! The City of Amsterdam has legalized gay sex in the park. Should the US follow suit?

    Oh good, now the Dutch homos can legally have the pleasure of getting twigs and pine cones up their asses while they do the nasty. Progress!

    That takes away from the joy and fear of getting caught and in trouble.

    Nice post man!!

    I like this line:

    "Dutch council officials will permit gay sex in public areas but fine dog owners who let their pets off the leash in Amsterdam's Vondelpark."

    I like this quote myself...

    One dog owner protested: "As long as the park has existed, we've been allowed to let our dogs run freely. It's outrageous that we will be punished from now on but public sex won't. If they can drop their trousers, why can't I let my dog loose?"

    Call me old-fashioned, a prude, etc., but sex between two people should not be done in a public place. I do not want to come upon two straights having sex in a park, why should I make an exception for two guys.

    It should not be a criminalized offense, a fine will do, but really to allow it? I don't think I am comfortable with that.

    The lawmakers must've been smoking some good crunk to be able to allow this...

    Hmmm, so you think they should enact standards of beauty for public exhibitionists? I can go with that.

    I assume they did this, as NNJ notes, because nothing the cops do ever stops the behavior.

    I consider myself a bit of an expert on the topic given that I've actually had public sex in Vondelpark, though I wasn't cruising... I met a guy at Club Exit (Regulierdwarstraat) and we simply took a short walk to the park to hook up... it was 3am.

    That being said, I don't like the idea of it being legalized. I think it's fine if the police turn the other way or the fine is negligible, but I'm against public displays of affection of any kind. If people still do it, fine, but no need to legalize it.

    Yes OW and Randy, Paula and Simon should be the judges who set the standards! icon_cool.gif

    Or should that by Nicky, Tyra and Tyson? icon_question.gif

    I'm not happy to hear of this. I hate public sex (what if a child sees or worse, I see and would rather have NOT seen?)
    I hope they do allow this in the states...I have a water gun full of scalding water that's got some gay man's upturned ass's name all over it! And when I run out of water my footall do the trick, grrrrr. icon_evil.gif
    I'd rather the right to marry my man not the right to offend innocent park goers.

    Hmmm...I wonder what will happen if the gay park sex involves one of the guys being on a leash and barking like a dog. What if he breaks free from this leash?

    Legalize gay sex in a public place. Does this in anyway take away or keep away humanize homosexuality throughout the country? Hah, fuck in park, and you won't get arrested or bashed? Hold hands and hug in a public place, and you'll get your head bashed in... I'm sure, but have no proof of... this is just stupid. But you're not Obscenewish, and thanks for the post.

    Well.. there are still some restrictions from what I can read in the article, such as
    Telegraph.co.uk"Thus, condoms must always be cleared away, it must never take place in the neighbourhood of children's playgrounds and the sex must be restricted to the evening and night-time,"
    I still am a bit disturbed by it though. I realize the city attempts to balance the desires of those who wish to have sex in a neutral location and those who want to use a restroom for its originally intended purpose, but I have to wonder if the envelope was pushed too far in one direction.

    As for the ruling banning unleashed dogs, I actually agree with that one since a physically unrestrained dog has the potential to run and hurt someone, like a small child. Two guys doing it in the mens room.. poses little danger to others -- except for some discomfort to other guys who may walk in during the act. From a strictly safety point of view, the ruling makes sense.

    wow, if all it takes is discomforting somebody to get you guys to dump it, what about free speech? That can make some people uncomfortable.

    Personally, I agree that legalize sex in parks is terrible....as was said above, it "takes away from the joy and fear of getting caught and in trouble."
