Bike sex case sparks legal debate
Source: BBC - UK

The case of a man convicted of simulating sex with his bicycle has sparked a debate about human rights and the privacy of an individual.

Internet message boards have been buzzing with comment about the case of Robert Stewart, 51, from Ayr.

He was reported by cleaners at a hostel who unlocked his door and found him engaged in a sex act with his bike.

Stewart was put on the Sex Offenders' Register, which some posters said was an over-reaction by the sheriff.

Stewart admitted a sexually aggravated breach of the peace by conducting himself in a disorderly manner and simulating sex. As well as being put on register for three years, he was put on probation for the same length of time.

Talk about your invasion of privacy! The 'cleaners' unlocked and opened the door? Well, it goes a long way in towards explaining how Tony Blair got so screwed up! Cheney would simply give anything for the power of the 'Queens Warrant' and cleaners master keys!

In hostels, just like in hotels. Have you ever stayed in a hotel?

8. The whore bike was asking for it....

...looking all shiny and shit, when it knew he'd be around.


On a serious note....I don't see how this it is a crime. A bike can't be violated....it's not living. It's not a human or animal. Also, he was in the privacy of his own room.

9. Whose bike was it??
The only way I could ever see this making any sense was if it was someones elses bike... If it was his bike, then I don't really understand the thought process behind this... I mean, trying to bang your bike is weird, even by my standards, but being weird shouldn't be against the law... Also, from the sounds of it, it sounds as if he inside his room doing this.... I mean, would have he of been charged if he was simply masturbating without the assistance of a bike? Seriously, wtf?

10. How exactly do you have sex with a bike?
"Mommy, where do bikes come from?"

"When two bikes get to know each other really well, and they fall in love..."

Fuck, we'll have to start giving kids the talk about the birds and the bikes now, won't we?

11. More like.....
"Your dad and I met at the bike rally in Sturgis...He liked my chrome and he was a stud in his leather. We got high on premium and then one thing lead to another.....Why are you asking me all this...go talk to your dad. "

"Awh mom all the ever wanted me to do is pull his muffler pipe....."
