Admittedly, I have no confirmation that these laws are actually on the books. And a commenter at snopes points out that the “Having sexual relations with a porcupine is illegal in Florida” law probably just addresses beastiality in general, rather than prohibiting spiny-backed sex objects. Regardless of veracity, it’s a funny list, and they certainly sound plausible. For example:
- Sexual intercourse between unmarried couples is illegal in Georgia.
- Oral sex is illegal in 18 states, including Arizona.
- In Connorsville, Wisconsin, it is illegal for a man to shoot off a gun when his female partner is having an orgasm.
- It is illegal in Utah to marry your first cousin before the age of 65.
That last one is my favorite. I mean, other than cheaper movie tickets, who wants to marry your cousin when they get that old?
