Sweden Says Public Self-Pleasuring O.K. on Beach

Facebook

O.K., we know Europe seems waaaay more comfortable with sexuality than the U.S., being as we were founded mostly by uptight Puritans and all.

But, really?

To quote an article at the huffingtonpost.com, “public masturbators in Sweden now may be able to get off without charges.” :-D

Yes, I, too, thought this was a story right out of The Onion.

But apparently, it’s true.

A recent court ruling is at least suggesting that masturbating on the beach in Sweden is “OK”, according to public prosecutor Olof Vrethammar.

Vrethammar was prosecuting a 65-year-old man who was charged with sexual assault after he was caught enjoying himself a little too much on a beach in Stockholm.

The thing is, no one was actually assaulted because he wasn’t directing his actions at anyone in particular, so he was cleared of the sexual assault charges.

“With that [ruling],” prosecutor Vrethammar told the Mitti, “we can conclude that it is OK to masturbate on the beach… [although] the act may be considered to be disorderly conduct.”

Visiting the beach in Sweden? Consider yourself a free-spirit, unashamed of your sexuality?

Just be careful where you point that thing.

P.S. I’m stealing this from “Mr. Hippity”, who commented below the story on gawker.com:

Here’s your N.Y. Post headline:

SWEDE WHACKER!

Here’s mine: Sign on Stockholm Beach: Jerk-offs welcome!

What’s your headline?
