Sex tips for the great outdoors
A lot of people think that having sex outdoors is against the law – well, it’s not.
The law is a little confusing, but the 2003 Sexual Offences Act doesn’t actually ban having sex outside.
What it does outlaw, though, is indecent exposure in a public place. This means that, if you’re caught having sex or performing another sexual act and the person takes offence and reports it, you and your partner risk a maximum of 6 months in prison or a £5,000 fine – so it’s worth being careful.
But the law also says that you should act within the boundaries of taste and decency – this basically means that if you have sex in an isolated place, where you can expect not to be disturbed, then it’s fine.
