    If you lived in a country where it is illegal to have sex with a man, would you .........
    1. Have sex with girls to ensure you got some sex ?
    2. Not have sex at all ?
    3. Break the law and have sex with men ?

    Well for me having sex with a girl instead wouldnt be anywhere near as big a deal but I do love guy on guy so I think even though I could happily not break the law, id break it anyway

    How are the chances to be caught and what is the punishment in this scenario btw?

    Assuming that I didn't have the same aversion to having sex with women that I feel (probably because I've been free to have gay sex sex and free act on those impulses), I'd be having sex with women (which seems to be the pattern in those cultures with strict prohibitions against gay sex).

    Assuming I did feel the same aversion, I'd probably avoid it altogether (I say that because I seem to have less of a compelling need to have sex, than the blokes I've known.)

    Even in countries / places where men having sex with men is not technically illegal (within the letter of the law), sodomy often is - making some aspects of gay sex slightly difficult if one wants to stay legal. In fact, I understand that oral sex is technically illegal in some places, including many US states, FFS.

    Many hetro couples break this dumbass kind of law too. I know I do...

    The rebel in me says #3, but I probably would be stuck at #2.

    The Supreme Court struck down sodomy laws in 2003. Right now the only American military still prosecutes sodomy.

    I notice that "emigrate to a more enlightened place" is not an option. Why?

    In answer to the question: 2 and/or 3.

    That's the US - there are one or two other places in the world where a man might wish to enjoy the love and company of (not to mention good hard rogering by) another man, you know... honest :tongue:

    I think that many people still fuck even though it may be illegal in their country. Look at the middle east. There's alot of gay sex going on there, but it's super secret and there's hell to pay if you're found out.

    Hmmmm. . . well, I grew up in a country (USA) and a very conservative state (Ewetaw) where it was VERY illegal for people to engage in same-sex activity. The punishments for those that were caught were harsh and included prison time as well as being sent to the State Mental Hospital for an indeterminant period. Although the Supreme Court has finally weighed in on same sex activity as OK, it has done little to stop the harrassment of gays; especially married men or Über religious gays still in the closet. In fact, in the "pretty, great State of Ewetaw" the Vice Squads throughout that State still routinely ferret out nudists, gay and straight, for public indecency. You might not think Ewetaw was as bad as a Muslim country, but it wasn't much better.

    Anyway, it never stopped me for getting as much as possible as often as possible. In the 70's most gay men "headed west" to San Francisco (thank you, San Francisco) to live free.

    Enlightened maybe, but no less dangerous :wink:

    MB-
    As I know you're overseas, I wasn't certain you were aware of the Lawrence case. I'm well aware of the fact that many places in Africa, the Middle east and Asia still consider bum-banditry a capitol offense.

    Let's be clear about how bass-ackwards the U.S. was before the Lawrence case in 2003. In several states before that decision, it was not only illegal for same-sex partners to have anal or even oral sex with each other in private, it was also illegal for a married, heterosexual couple to have anal sex and even oral sex in private. "Sodomy" refers to oral and anal sex, and the term "sodomy" is not limited to same-sex couples, let alone two gay men.

    I think I would still have gay sex.

    Think of the reverse, if you were str8 and it was illegal, would you have sex with men?
