made a law a while back...

I'm doing a project for Sociology on Same-Sex marriages, and I've found that in all the USA, only Vermont and Hawaii allow "civil unions" or "domestic partners."



ANyway, in Georgia, it is a felony to practice sodomy, that is to touch your sexual organs to another's mouth or anus, or to allow another to do the same to you.



So... blow jobs are illegal in Georgia?



I mean, anal sex is probably more dangerous than plain vanilla intercourse, but aside from the fact that it cannot produce children, I can find nothing good in interfering with two consenting adult's sexual practices. And there's NOTHING wrong with allowing women to love eachother.

    It would be rather hard to apply, since you would need to catch it in the act. <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" />

    It has been applied - it was upheld in the Supreme Court case <a href="http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=us&vol=478&invol=186"; target="_blank">Bowers v. Hardwick</a>. (hehe hardwick, hehe, ahem... excuse me)



    Some cops were responding to another crime and happened to stumble across two guys in the act.



    Basically the court said there is no Constitutional right to engage in sodomy. Stupid strict constructionists.



    And I believe quite a few other states have laws against it, but it's not enforced.



    I personally get that extra little thrill out of it because I know it's illegal.

    I thought you knew. Georgia is in the Bible Belt. You can be charged for lewd acts in your own house...with the windows open in plain view of your neibhors. My time there was interesting to say the least.

    I seem to recall hearing of a case where a wife filed charges against her husband for "forcefully going down" on her. He was arrested under the state law and Hugh Hefner PAID for his defense lawyers. Seems the wife just wanted to get out of their marriage but had no true grounds for a divorce. Screwed up law to be sure but still a punishable offense if accused or caught.
