FACT CHECK: Is Oral Sex Still Illegal in 18 States?
To all the world's kinky jetsetters, the imaginatively-named weirdsexlaws. Some laws are ancient and obsolete, some are largely unenforced, but all are quite hilarious. In Singapore, if you appear nude in a private place that is "exposed to public view", you are guilty of committing a crime. Similarly, in China, women are not allowed to walk around a hotel room naked - except in the bathroom.

The girl drank such large quantities of vodka that her blood alcohol content rose above. As she slipped in and out of consciousness, the boy carried her to his car, and at some point, the girl performed oral sex. Later, she woke up at her grandmother's house and was eventually taken to a hospital, at which point she regained consciousness.
Judaism is generally very positive about sex, regarding it as a divine gift and a holy obligation — both for the purposes of procreation and for pleasure and intimacy. The Talmud specifies not merely that a husband is required to be intimate with his wife, but sources also indicate that he is obliged to sexually satisfy her. Instead, sexual activity is highly circumscribed in Jewish tradition, as the rabbis of the Talmud sought to use the human libido as a tool for increasing the population and strengthening marriage. Traditional Jewish law not only prohibits many types of sexual relationships, but it also dictates specific parameters even for permitted ones. And while Judaism is broadly permissive when it comes to sex between married adults, the same is not true for sexual activity outside of a committed relationship.
