In Tremonton, Utah, USA, it is still an offence for a woman to have sexual intercourse with a man in an ambulance. She can be charged with a misdemeanour and have her name printed in the local paper.
Christina’s advice to travellers: Only dial the emergency services for non-sexual emergencies, please. (OK, to clarify I mean non-life threatening sexual emergencies as I don’t want to be sued for this post at a later date).
In Oxford, Ohio, USA, it is still illegal for a woman to undress in front of a picture of a man.
Christina’s advice to travellers: This problem is easy solved by making sure you undress in front of a real, live and kicking gentleman. In all honesty, pictures rarely give an appropriate sexual response to the delights of the gorgeous female body and it would simply be a waste of your time and effort.

Christina’s advice to travellers: Viagra is a many splendid and wonderful thing.

Christina’s advice to travellers: Think twice before bringing any female pets into Lebanon.
In Conorsville, Wisconsin, USA, it is illegal for a man to fire a gun while his wife is having an orgasm.
Christina’s advice to travellers: Well, it might be tempting if she’s having sex with the next door neighbour, but you should really wait until she’s finished. Ahem.
