Park Rangers Report Spike In Beach Sex Problem
http://www.thebostonchannel.com/news/16666144/detail.html ^

Posted on 06/22/2008 4:47:58 PM PDT by traumer

BOSTON -- Park rangers who patrol the Cape Cod National Seashore around Provincetown and Truro are trying to come up with strategies to discourage increasingly common incidents of illegal public sex on area beaches.

They say complaints about explicit, open public sex on the national park beaches have tripled in the past decade, with activity ranging from flashing to men's public orgies.

The rangers have been trying to crack down by enforcing a federal misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, which prohibits obscene acts, the Cape Cod Times reported.

Seashore rangers issued 132 citations for public sex acts last year, compared with about 70 annually from 2003 to 2006, and about 40 citations annually in prior years, Seashore acting chief ranger Craig Thatcher said.

A New Jersey family walking with children in the dunes wrote in a September 2007 letter that they encountered "several couples and then a large group of men having group sex in the nude, including oral and anal sex right out in the open," the park service said.

A whale-watch boat captain carrying a boatload of tourists also reported seeing 20 to 30 nude men "playing around" near Wood End Lighthouse, another letter from August 2007 reported.

Provincetown has a large gay population and attracts large numbers of gay tourists, according to the Times.

Rangers said they are working with Provincetown police and town officials to start a public education campaign aimed at discouraging the behavior.

Just another consequence of the “tolerance” mindset. The less criticism and the more “rights” and excuses granted these perverts, the bolder they’re going to get.

And this is the result.

“Seashore rangers issued 132 citations for public sex acts last year...”

Stop issuing citations and start ARRESTING AND JAILING people.

They only are trying to "discourage" the behavior? How about making arrests and getting convictions as sex offenders?

Arrest them and prosecute them. Since they blatantly practice this behavior where children can see them place them on the sex offender register.

Word will get around and fewer will risk it.

They probably just happened upon the reception after a lovely sacred gay marriage.

Tip of the iceberg, from the link posted a few above:

“Other complaints submitted to the park mention nudity at Head of the Meadow Beach, homosexual pornography posted in the bathroom at Pilgrim Heights, masturbation in the Pamet cranberry bog and more.

Cranberry juice just lost it’s appeal!

When I was younger (many moons ago) we used to kid around about the reason girls should not have sex on the beach and that was because they might get "sand in their Schlitz."

I know, pretty lame 40 years later. Moreoveer, I wouldn't be surprised if some here are too young to have ever heard of Schlitz beer.

Remember when the Massachusetts State Patrol were barred from arresting men for soliciting or engaging in homosexuality at highway rest stops?

If you don’t want to be seen I’m guessing you wouldn’t be romping in the nude in broad daylight where you know people can walk by any given moment.

They don’t care that a family with kids had to look at that.
They probably laughed about it.

There’s been plenty of news stories lately about public sex, and 99% of the time it winds up being about gay men.

Ah, Schlitz! An integral part of the breakfast of champions: cornflakes and a six pack of Schlitz. Infinitely preferable to Merrimack Bud in its infancy. Then that idiot had to go and mess with the recipe.

I’ve only been down as far as mid-cape but I do know that the tip is almost exclusively homosexual. I’ve never had any problems.

I will add that I live in a urban area and on any given weekend there are men and prostitutes having sex in alley ways, parks, public rest rooms. Two weeks ago I was walking to get a coffee early in the morning when I was startled by what sounded like a scream. In the car on my left was some man having sex with a prostitute.

This goes in cities every night around the entire country I’d bet?

Families should not be subjected to any sort of public sex.

Of course, it’s the alternative lifestylers doing most of this. Why is it that we don’t see reports of hetero orgies?

When people act as animals, treat them as animals. Round them up and cage them. If they get out of line, cattle prods usually convince the orneriest ones.

“Why is it that we don’t see reports of hetero orgies?”

same reason the hetero life expectancy is longer and rate of AIDS infection is significantly lower.

The Attorney General really needs to issue a warning in men’s restrooms - homosexual sex among men is much deadlier than smoking.
