In the news: Tossa & Sex on the Beach

We caught sight of this news item on TVE recently: Tossa's mayor decided to ban sex on the beach.


I get to tease my friends soon: "What have you guys been doing since I've been gone?" "Has Tossa turned Taliban now?" And, "What exactly constitutes a sexual act, legally? ...dime la verdad!"

I didn't think we had such a problem. Sure, one occasionally hears of such things, but isn't this a private matter? Isn't a dark night at the surf's edge, under beach towels a private enough place? Who would be looking, anyway?

The prohibition of coitus in public places isn't the only proscribed act. Add to this, the consumption of alcohol in public places. And massage. And clairvoyance, tarot cards and games that involve the shooting of dice. And Making braids. And tattoos too.

One can imagine a royal transgression involving all these things at once. I'll have to bring this up with my pal Alberto.
