Public masturbation legal in Sweden? Man acquitted for jerking-off

Scandinavians have always been known as progressive thinkers when it comes to social issues, but following a new court ruling, the Swedes are also proving to be tolerant with specifically public masturbation.


Setting a new legal precedent, a Swedish court has ruled that masturbation is acceptable in public, as long as the sexual act is not directed at anyone

A 65-year-old Stockholm man was caught masturbating on a public beach.  Originally charged with sexual assault, he was acquitted by the Södertörn District Court.

“We can conclude that it is okay to masturbate on the beach. [Although] the act may be considered to be disorderly conduct,” public prosecutor Olof Vrethammar told Swedish news website, The Local, adding, “We can conclude that it is okay to masturbate on the beach. [Although] the act may be considered to be disorderly conduct.”

    Something fishy with these figures… How possible is it than Airtel has more fake handsets than Safaricom, yet the latter has like over 6 times more subscribers than them ? If Airtel switched off 740,000 subscribers I would expect Safaricom’s to disconnect at least 3.5 million. Most of these fake handsets are dual sim, and thus most likely the subscribers would at least use one of the sim slots for Safaricom (going by the millions of subscribers they have, plus their mpesa services, etc). The question is what percentage of fake phone subscribers has Safaricom switched of, 10%, 12% ….? I bet Safaricom is being the sly operator (as usual), either not being over enthusiastic in this project, or delaying doing so, since they clearly realise that every minute when these handsets are on air they are minting for them millions.

    Airtel might have switched off all handsets in Mandera. We are without service from midnight. Can Airtel tell us what went wrong.
