Interesting facts from around the world

Interesting facts from around the world

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with

animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a

male animal is punishable by death. (Like THAT makes sense.)


In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's

genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during the



He may only see their reflection in a mirror. (Do they

look different reversed?)


Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a

corpse. This also applies to undertakers; the sex organs of the deceased

must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times. (A brick??)


The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is

decapitation.   (Much worse than 'going blind!')


There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel

the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the

privilege of having sex for the first time... Reason: under Guam law, it

is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry. (Let's just think for a

minute; is there any job anywhere else in the world that even comes

close to this?)


In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill

her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The

husband's lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.

(Ah! Justice!)


In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her

husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room

to witness the act. (Super!!)


In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have

sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time. (I presume this was

a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?)


In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending

machines with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a

vending machine only 'in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for

consumption on the premises.' (Is this a great country or what? Though

not as great as Guam!)


And some interesting little-known facts: Banging your

head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (Who volunteers for this



Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex

for pleasure.   (Is that why Flipper was always smiling?)


The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30

times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when

intoxicated. (From drinking little bottles of...? - - did the govt. pay

for this research??)


An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. (I know some

people like that.)


Starfish don't have brains. (I know some people like

that too)


And, the best for last.....Turtles can breathe through

their ass.   (I know people who can talk through theirs!)
