Singapore Policeman Gets Two Years for Oral Sex

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A Singaporean police sergeant has been jailed for two years for having oral sex in a country where prostitution is legal but oral sex is not, a newspaper reported Friday.

The Straits Times reported that the 27-year-old police coast guard sergeant landed in court after a 16-year-old reported to the police that she had performed oral sex on the man.

She was above the age of consent and agreed to perform the act, but oral sex is against the law in the city-state, the paper said.

"The act by itself is an offence. It is not a question of consent or no consent. Even between consenting people, it is an offence," criminal lawyer Subhas Anandan told the paper.

The maximum punishment for the offence is life imprisonment.

At my age, most men's version of oral sex is talking about it.

In VA, the only sex that is legal is between a married heterosexual couple, in their primary place of residence (yes, this means no sex at the beach house or in a hotel), on the top floor of the domicile (so no sex in the basement, the kitchen, or even in the master bedroom if it happens to be on the lower floor), in a bed (so no sex in the bathroom either), in the missionary position, with the lights out and the shades drawn.

I'm not kidding.

I'm willing to bet that even the vast majority of the married couples in VA are in violation of that law.

I'm willing to bet that the recent Supreme Court decision regarding sodomy laws is going to provide lots of court challenges for Virginia's silly sex laws.

I used to be a Unitarian back when we were campaigning to repeal the anti-sodomy laws in AZ (which have soince been repealed). One woman stood up during a discussion at a service and said pretty much the same thing; everyone in the roon who wasn't a virgin was probably guilty of violating the anti-sodomy laws.
