Is it strictly il­le­gal to have sex in my car?

Men's Health (Singapore) - - ASK -

Strictly speak­ing, it is an of­fence un­der the Pe­nal Code to “[do] any ob­scene act in any public place”. Com­mis­sion of this of­fence is pun­ish­able by a fine or by im­pris­on­ment of up to 3 months.

While your car is a pri­vate ve­hi­cle, you would still be com­mit­ting an of­fence if your car is parked in a public place - such as a public car park or a public road, es­pe­cially if your ac­tions within the car are vis­i­ble from out­side the car.

The le­gal in­for­ma­tion here does not con­sti­tute le­gal ad­vice. You should al­ways con­sult a lawyer for the pro­fes­sional as­sur­ance that our in­for­ma­tion, and your in­ter­pre­ta­tion of it,is ap­pro­pri­ate to your par­tic­u­lar sit­u­a­tion, be­fore you com­mence any sort of le­gal ac­tion. We are not li­able if you fail to do so.
