In what can only be described as more of Florida’s obsession with gay sex, officials in Martin County are looking into putting motion-activated cameras on beaches to deter “men soliciting men for sex”. The cameras sense motion and flash a bright light (I would assume to get a better money shot…). They then issue a pre-recorded verbal warning to let people know they are under surveillance, and, sixty seconds later, start recording.
Like toilet-obsessed Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle, the reason given for investing in this expensive technology (around $5,500 per camera, plus thousands more in wiring, manpower, and monitoring costs) by officials was solely men having sex with men.
That’s right, folks. It seems only gay men ever get frisky on the beach.
Never mind the fact that on any given evening on the beach, straight couples can be found getting down and dirty in the sand. Heck, the commercials and ads for the beaches here even show these cute couples cuddling or making-out on the beach. But of course, straight sex in public is romantic and fun. Two men? Call in the cops and lock the perverts up. Just make sure you get a hot video first.
So next time you come down to Florida, make sure be camera ready. Or at least bring a lighting crew with you to make sure they get your best side…
