In Alexandria, Minn. Across the border in Connorsville, Wis. And down in Ames, Iowa, no husband is allowed to have more than three gulps of beer while in bed or cuddling with his spouse. These antiquated sex laws, and dozens more from across the country, are fodder for jokes on the Internet, where they are frequently listed. Forgotten or ignored, the statutes are legal relics of outmoded social norms or provisions instigated to ban outrageously specific behavior. A hilarious Newcastle, Wyo. Sixteen-year-old Amanda Smisek was cited in violation of Idaho Code , a law making sex out of wedlock a crime.
At first glance it appeared Gem County Prosecutor Douglas Varie was on a crusade to curb teen pregnancy by convicting Smisek and six other teens. But the revival of the old fornication law has more to do with money than morality. Even more telling is the fact that all charges of fornication were filed after the teens had applied for state assistance. And though the Idaho prosecutions are a clear-cut case of using old laws to go after welfare moms, there are even more incredible convictions on the books. Georgia carpenter David Moseley was sentenced in to five years in a maximum security prison for performing oral sex on his estranged wife, Bette Roberts.
Roberts had charged Moseley with rape in an attempt to gain custody of their two children. Even though her accusations were proved false in court, Moseley admitted to consensual cunnilingus, a felony in Georgia, while on the stand. Superior Court Judge William Ison informed the jury that oral sex constituted sodomy and Moseley found himself in prison alongside murderers, rapists and racketeers.
Think again. Anyone engaging in any form of premarital sex is guilty of misdemeanor fornication. These laws are usually enforced only in rape, incest or sexual abuse cases. A law, once passed, can be invoked until it is removed. Legislators must be vigilant about repealing all archaic laws, not just those pertaining to sexual behavior.
