Sexual laws. The good the bad and the strange.

I saw this on Fox News website. The article detailed the various Laws that are actually on the books, that makes no sence. The problem with these laws is that there is no real way to enforce them, minus extreme invasion of privacy, and well let's face it, some of them are just plain strange. I couldn't help but laugh at them, and I hope you get a kick out of them as well. you can read the full article here:,2933,351636,00.html?sPage=fnc/health/sexpert
