A man with a low IQ has been banned from having sex by a High Court judge who admitted the case raised questions about civil liberties and personal autonomy.
Under the judge's order, the man is now subject to 'close supervision' by the local authority to ensure he does not break the highly unusual order
The 41 year-old had been in a relationship with a man whom he lived with and told officials it would make me feel happy for it to continue.
But his local council decided his vigorous sex drive was inappropriate and that with an IQ of 48 and a moderate learning disability, he did not understand what he was doing.
A psychiatrist involved in the case even tried to prevent the man being given sex education, on the grounds that it would leave him confused.
Mr Justice Mostyn said the case was legally, intellectually and morally complex as sex is one of the most basic human functions and the court must tread especially carefully when the state tries to curtail it.
But he agreed that the man, known only as Alan, should not be allowed to have sex with anyone on the grounds that he did not have the mental capacity to understand the health risks associated with his actions.
Under the judges order, the man is now subject to close supervision by the local authority that provides his accommodation, in order to ensure he does not break the highly unusual order.
The judge concluded: I therefore make a declaration that at the present time Alan does not have the capacity to consent to and engage in sexual relations.
In such circumstances it is agreed that the present régime for Alan's supervision and for the prevention of future sexual activity is in his best interests.

homosexuality is a mental disorder driven by instinct!
Put into perspective, if it happened here, it would mean the end of the democrats forever!
IQ of 48 and only a moderate learning disorder...
Ha! My thought was similar. The Great Society wouldn’t have been so ‘great’.
So what your saying is this would be the end of the progressive liberal socialist commie radical democrate, no?
Is he still allowed to vote? Probably encouraged to.
funny, you only have to watch the daily talk shows to know of lots of other people of low intelligence spitting out unwanted kids with multiple fathers like a factory, they treat having a child as some welfase bonus. Now if only we could make sure they did’nt get unwantedly and constantly pregnant.
If he lived in Chicago, he’d get to vote - twice.
sounds like a terrible movie with Ashton Kutcher, or Jim Carey, or Adam Sandler..or..well you get what I am saying..
He’s not going to get pregnant...
Liberal Judges and Politicians with their mental disorders are a far greater menace to society than homosexual morons who sow fudge with their sperms.
There, all fixed.
But speaking of that, why not allow him Lewinskis? /it's not really sex> /Clinton>
Court bans man with low IQ from having sex.Now we know why Michelle won’t have another child.
“Court bans man with low IQ from having sex”
I’d have thought Plugs Biden and his old lady would be too old to breed, but better safe than sorry.
So if you have a 100 IQ, that makes it right??
Despite the medias fawning, I always knew Clinton was a dummy.
The man he lives with,Kieron, is exploiting him and should be in jail. He’s a predator corrupting a weaker person. Alan is suffering under this condition, as displayed in his acting out to children.
Not much different than Obama. Obamas 2 points lower on the IQ, but has a severe learning disability (ignorance), but also does not understand what he is doing.
I suppose the British agree...
Looking back, some of the freak shows I spent the night with, my IQ had to have been in the 40's.
To be fair, some of those ladies had wake up with an Obama WTF moment!
That struck me as rather absurd too.
An old associate of mine would have said If he is using all 48, he is better of than a lot of us.
Is there any beer in this equation?
I wonder if there are more crazy homos or crazy hetros?
“IQ of 48 and only a moderate learning disorder..”
Welcome to the new and improved England.
This judge has effectively equated low IQ with an inability to recognize right and wrong, or to understand the potential consequences of one’s actions. Since much of the behavior extolled by liberals is equally irresponsible and indulgent, does that mean that liberalism is, by definition, a condition of low IQs? And does that therefore mean that liberals should not be allowed to breed?
It’s a theory I’ve maintained for years, but it’s never had the weight of official jurisprudence behind it before ...
Just one among other intelligence altering substances.
So: what’s the penalty if he does have sex? Put him in jail? That’ll keep him from having sex with men.
Or put his social worker/supervisor in jail? What a thankless job.
If he lived in Chicago, hed get to vote - twice.
In Chiconago he would be paraded around and allowed to vote until voting was closed. As is done frequently. in that city, even the dead vote twice or more.
