Our Leeds Escorts were amazed to read this story this week about public acts of masturbation. It seems that La Corte di Cassazione, which is Italy's highest court, were asked to rule about a case of a 69 year-old who had been sentenced to 3 months in prison and fined £2900, for practising 'auto-eroticisim' in public. In fact, in front of students at the University of Catania.
The court decided that, due to some recent government reform, the act, basically masturbating in public, was not a crime. It seems that last year the Italian Parliament decriminalised 'lurking in places frequented by girls in order to be seen masturbating'. Weird or what?
The man did not get off scot-free though. Whilst the act was not considered a criminal offence and therefor the prison sentence was inappropriate, they did order him to pay a fine of between £4245 - £25,000 to the local court in Catania. The local court will decide the exact amount.
In the UK public masturbation will get you around 14 days in prison. The act of wilfully and indecently exposing your 'person' in public is an offence. So if you're the sort of person who enjoys a bit of public attention while masturbating, you might be better off getting on a plane to Italy!
