That’s because the Old Dominion’s House of Delegates just unanimously passed a bill which repeals the state’s long-standing ban on oral and anal sex.
That’s right. Up until this week, Virginia had some of the most restrictive sex laws in the country. If you and your wife wanted to engage in some casual ass play one slow Wednesday afternoon, you were breaking the law.
No, seriously. This is what was on the books before this week.
If any person carnally knows in any manner any brute animal, or carnally knows any male or female person by the anus or by or with the mouth, or voluntarily submits to such carnal knowledge, he or she shall be guilty of a Class 6 felony.”
A fucking felony. FOR A BLOWJOB. God bless my home state, but that is absurd.
Of course, you never could have been prosecuted for such a crime, as the Supreme Court long ago ruled persecuting people for consensual acts of a sexual nature was an infringement on personal rights.
Now, thankfully, Virginia has caught up to modern times with a law that reads like this:
“Consensual sodomy is not a crime if all persons participating are adults, are not in a public place, and are not committing, attempting to commit, conspiring to commit, aiding, or abetting any act in furtherance of prostitution.”
You’re damn right it’s not a crime. It’s butt sex.
