Sorry in advance. I find this story at Reuters amusing.
May be NSFW depending of where you work.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Wow - a bona fide sensible mature Supreme Court ruling!
Way to go, Canada [Big Grin]

The guy was convicted in 1999 for allowing people to have consensual sex in private where no money changed hands and absolutely nothing illegal transpired. It only took 6 years and a supreme court decision to overturn that verdict.

Frankly, I'm a bit underwhelmed.

Just wait for the religous nuts to declare that The World's Going To Hell! as a result.

Notably - they try to tie in the age of consent issue - which is completely unrelated. Although a fourteen year old may "consent" to have sex, they are not considered legal adults. The ruling applies to _adults_.

Wow...I know having group sex is not illegal but goodness. [Eek!]

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

No politician will ever make group sex illegal, after all - they're screwing the entire country !

Canada's legal age to consent to sex is 14.

Unless the older party is in a position of authority (police officer, guardian, babysitter, teacher, etc) then the legal age of consent becomes 18 in those situations.
