Crowd Cheers Public Gay Sex in Russia


I may have to rethink my views on intolerance in Russia, though without a lot of details it’s hard to know if the crowd assembled here was merely shocked into submission.

While a crowd watched enthusiastically and recorded the event on film, two drunk men in the streets of Ekaterinburg, Russia, danced, undressed, kissed, and finally performed oral sex on one another, MosNews reports.

“People who gathered around the couple reacted quite positively, took photographs, applauded and recorded them on video. Nobody bothered to call the police or protest.”

Law enforcement seemed upset they hadn’t been there to witness it: “Such actions are classified as an administrative offence and are definitely punishable. Naturally, had we received an alarm, our officers would have immediately put an end to the incident.”

Perhaps Provincetown has found its sister city.
