Fellas, Ever Been Aroused in Public? It’s Illegal in Indiana!
You might want to think twice about getting aroused!
As a guy, we've all been there: you see something enticing and suddenly, uh-oh, you have an erection. Actually, sometimes you don't even have to come into contact with anything arousing, it just happens. Well, according do some dumb laws in Indiana, it's technically illegal!
The following is the from the IC 35-45-4 Chapter 4. Indecent Acts and Prostitution, from the section about nudity. The law reads as below:
(b) "Nudity" means the showing of the human male or female genitals, pubic area, or buttocks with less than a fully opaque covering, the showing of the female breast with less than a fully opaque covering of any part of the nipple, or the showing of covered male genitals in a discernibly turgid state.
I've never heard an erection described as a "Turgid State" but I'm definitely naming my band that. Anyway, this basically says if we can see what you working with through your pants, you could be arrested or fined. I assume if you you get caught with a boner while wearing sweatpants (It's always when you are wearing sweatpants, isn't it?) you probably get the Death Penalty.
Granted, I don't know if any police officer wants to be known as the "Boner Police" so the chances of this actually being enforced are slim. Unless, you know, you're making a production out of it or being a super creep. So yeah, the next time you get an erection in public, you might want to hide behind a trashcan or something until it goes away. Or you could always grab a Trapper Keeper.
