Sex in public has a dangerously appealing ring to it. Unfortunately, when it's called lewd and lascivious exhibition, not so much. You may have heard recently about the Florida couple arrested for having sex on the beach. They were found guilty of lewd and lascivious exhibition, when a young child caught them in the act. This is a crime, if it's believed that you engage in an intentional sexual performance in the presence of a child younger than 16, that can lead to serious penalties.
Forget the drink "Sex on the Beach". A couple in Florida took the phrase literally. The couple from Bradenton were arrested after they had sex on a public beach, this past Sunday. Several children were among the stunned onlookers, just in case you thought this couldn't get any more awkward. The man and woman were charged with lewd and lascivious behavior for their public indecency. A citizen on the beach recorded the incident and turned the shocking video over to the Bradenton police.
