I never knew it was illegal. Good to know. I question how many Canadian even know about this law?

This strikes you funny or ridiculous how exactly?

Given that Florida (your State?) still had a sodomy law until 2003 until the supreme court struck it down; would you have thought your SCOTUS as performing something ridiculous by addressing that?

It wasn't illegal if you were over 18. They're just changing the law to match other legislation. There's really nothing to see here.


Better than in a number of states where it's still illegal on the books to have oral sex, buy a sex toy, or anything else consenting adults may want to do.

It is likely my age and where I live... but other then age related laws, I failed to realize any of these laws regarding how to or not have sex really existed. I guess this update to the law is long over due.

I just find it funny. The fact that there is/was such a law in place to begin with.

I would suspect some of these laws have been on the books since the times they were still burning witches.

Going through some of the more mundane stuff would just have you laughing 'til tears came at what must have happened to cause them to address some of these issues.

Very early settlers with their almost desperate belief in divine providence then followed by the Victorian era probably saw rows of clerks sitting at desks with their little quill pens poised for the next edict from rabid puritans.

If one stops to think about it for a bit; our current liquor laws in the province of Ontario are the stuff to make logical thinkers weep in their beer.
