Councillors in the Netherlands have agreed to allow gay sex in the public area of an Amsterdam park.
Gay men having sex in the city's famous Vondelpark will be permitted as part of a set of new rules of conduct for the country's best-known park.
"Why should we try to impose something that is actually impossible to impose, which also causes little bother for others and for a certain group actually means much pleasure?", said Paul van Grieken, an Alderman in the Oud-Zuid district of the city.
The park's rose garden has become a well known spot for gay men looking for sex.
Mr van Grieken stresses that tolerance to "cruising" gays, aimed at protecting homosexuals from violence, will have "strict rules attached."
"Thus, condoms must always be cleared away, it must never take place in the neighbourhood of children's playgrounds and the sex must be restricted to the evening and night-time," he told The Telegraph.
The new park rules have the blessing of the Dutch police, who have urged all Dutch parks to follow Amsterdam's lead.
The park, which draws hundreds of visitors, families, skaters and joggers over the summer will be fining those whose dogs are allowed to run around the Vondelpark off the leash.
"Research showed that many people find this disturbing," said Mr van Grieken.

Once upon a time, the Dutch did not condone sex in public parks, but they *did* manage to reproduce themselves. Liberalism is a death cult.
Sheesh.....can’t they find a ROOM????
Let me get this straight...dogs can’t run free in a park in Amsterdam, but men can have sex there. Interesting.
Maybe on the positive side all gays who want to be promiscuous and rabid about sex in public places will move in droves to the Netherlands and stay there....
Sounds like it’s time to train Lassie to selectively prosecute....
Note to all straight men: don’t go for a walk in the park at night. And if you do, for cryin’ out loud, if you drop something, just LET IT GO! Do NOT bend over!
...no pictures, please.
Only homos can do this? Hey us hetro’s like a little romp in the park once in a while, too!
They want to act like animals so they are getting a yard to play in.
“Strict rules are to be followed.”
Yeah, since when are gay men known to follow ‘strict rules’? Gay men ALWAYS wear condoms and ALWAYS dispose of them. Gay men will of course always do it in a place kids can’t see them. THEY WANT KIDS TO SEE THEM!!!!
But you Dutch ninnies, don’t you see? You’re putting them back in the closet, you’re hiding them away from the rest of society. They ought to be right out there for everyone to see. Nothing wrong with it, why hide it?
Can’t anyone see how this is going to turn out?
I mean where there's one man and one woman.
Yeah, it used to be like that.
Surely you remember?
No, I didn't call you "Shirley".
Does this mean that parents of small children can carry water pistols and shoot them at guys going at it in the daytime?
Wait I've been hearing about public displays of such for years now, or is the story of the "little Dutch Boy" not true?
I loathed Amsterdam when I visited there in 1976 with it’s sex shops, sanctioned prostitution etc.
I can’t imagine what a cesspool it is now.
Good Grief. The Dutch are being assaulted on all fronts. If it’s not fascist islamonuts it’s Dutch liberal lunatics. The country just may not be worth saving anymore.
why don't people show their distrust and disgust of this culture and NOT go there?
OK...I'm officially boycotting the Netherlands. I never intended to go there and I'm still not going!
This sounds really, really gross. I can’t imagine a country that promotes such things prospering.
Another thing that is interesting to note is that Amsterdam is more than 50% immigrant, and I am guessing a lot of that is Muslim. They should have an interesting take on this. Want to bet eventually there is a culture war over this, with sharia winning?
If the concience of people does not govern them, eventually the state comes in and does it.
