Lighten up, it's sex talk time

We had a lot of posts about conspiracies this week. Such a serious topic. It seems during the next week this will be somehow naturally continued into another interesting topic - the media. But may we have a short detour into something sillier and amusing?

We often hear strange stories about the outdated laws that still exist in some US states. Laws and regulations dating from centuries ago which are no more relevant today. I am not saying that this has something to do with the specifics of the precedent-based judiciary/legislative system, or the autonomy of states to craft their own local laws (though that may really be the case). Granted, there are stupid laws everywhere. The US examples may be more popular at home and abroad just because we tend to hear a lot about this great country whose cultural influence, both for good or bad, can be felt in every corner of the world. So I thought it would be curious to look into some funny examples.
