Oldies But Goodies! (# 1)

Court OKs masturbation at home

VANCOUVER - The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that masturbating at home is not an offence, even if the activity can be seen by peeking neighbours after a BC man was charged.
John Russell, president of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, said he was surprised the case got before the courts in the first place.
But he said he was relieved the ruling went the way it did.
"In fact, most Canadians are careful in those ways and it would appear that the poor man had just failed to take the formal precautions."

Errr...."formal" precautions? I didn't know there were "formal" precautions. Is there a government manual? Just think, all this time Canadians were masturbating on uncertain legal ground.
We might have legalized pot and gay marriage, but were still a nation of prudes.
