City Combats Corruption By Allowing Public Sex!

For many, the idea of having sex in public is an incredibly appealing one. There is something thrilling about fucking outdoors. You can enjoy the fresh air on your body, and the thrill of getting caught just makes it kinkier for us. The problem is that it is frowned upon in many areas.

In Mexico’s second-largest city, one councillor has proposed an interesting change to the law. This change would, effectively, allow residents to have public sex. Police officers would be expected to look the other way in certain circumstances.

Police corruption

Guadalajara is Mexico’s second-largest city, and because of the size of the city, we aren’t surprised that many couples get caught having sex in public. It is easy to get carried away, especially if you’ve had a few drinks and found a seemingly quiet spot.

However, Guadalajara is also said to have a great deal of police corruption. Police corruption is rife here, with many of the police officers choosing to focus their attention on those residents caught in the act.

Public sexual acts are an administrative offence, usually sanctioned with a brief detention or a fine. However, some officers see these amorous couples as a great opportunity. They will accept a bribe in order to avoid taking further action. It is reportedly a common practice in the city, and one that the officials wish to stop. Some even approach couples kissing and suggest that they’ll be in trouble for it unless they pay a ‘fine’ to the officer.

A possible solution?

The city decided that enough was enough. They were eager to try and discourage police corruption however they could, and felt that public sex was the best place to start. If officers weren’t in a position to accept bribes about it, then the corruption might end in other areas.

Guadalupe Morfin, city councillor, has suggested a unique measure which could make a difference. It will make it harder to police public sexual activity, hopefully ending the corruption surrounding the subject.

She came forward to suggest that the law is changed. Now, officers can only intervene when couples are having sex in public if a third party makes a complaint. Otherwise they are expected to turn the other cheek and not get involved at all. It means that the police can then focus on more serious offences taking place.

Some concerns over public sex

Needless to say, some people aren’t convinced that this will work. Some feel that it means that there will be an increase in public sex, and that it will be up to the public to deal with it. They’ll be the ones policing it instead, by threatening those at it with complaints to the police if they don’t stop.

If the number of couples fucking in public does increase, it also makes people wonder what that will mean. Will more young people see it? Will those having public sex get themselves into riskier situations in order to get a bigger thrill from it? These are just some of the questions this method has brought up.

Others state that this isn’t the best way to deal with police corruption. They feel that police corruption can be tackled in other ways, and that public sexual encounters still need to be taken seriously by the police.

Will it make a difference?

The real question is, will this actually make a difference? In a way, I can see why it might. If police officers can’t step in without a complaint from a third party, it will mean that they cannot bribe people in the same way.

However, will it also mean that couples are more likely to get it on in public? They might be… or maybe they’ll simply be more relaxed about showing affection instead.

I know how I think this will go, but what do you think? Will this really make the difference that politicians are hoping it will? Let us know what you think by joining in the discussion below.
