The most bizarre news stories and other weird news of the world!
08 October 2021 | By Richard Ahern - In bizarre news, for the first time in the history of the US, a state has banned the action of secretly removing a condom during sex, known as stealthing.
Stealthing is allegedly a common behavior, with a 2018 study claiming that 32% of women and 19% of men who have sex with men had experienced stealthing. Clearly, secretly removing a condom during sex poses the risk of sexually transmitted infection and unplanned pregnancy.
The law will allow people to sue the perpetrators of stealthing in the civil court. The hope is that civil litigation will mean victims of the act can decide whether or not to punish the culprit.
Here’s what you’ve been waiting for…
Which US state has banned stealthing?
Somewhat unsurprisingly, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed the rather kooky bill into law on Thursday. The bill passed both the Senate and the Assembly without opposition, making California the first state to pass an anti-stealthing law.
An interesting issue to ‘work on’…
Assemblywoman, Cristina Garcia sponsored the bill saying, “I have been working on the issue of 'stealthing' since 2017 and I am elated that there is now some accountability for those who perpetrate the act”.
The law states that people found guilty could be liable for general, special, and punitive damages.
