Philippines likely to impose no-sex rule on the beachBy ANI

WASHINGTON - Philippine authorities may soon impose no-sex rule on the world famous beaches of Boracay island, according to the local mayor.
The plan comes after a television crew filmed two naked couples making out in public on New Year’s Day.
The clip showed one pair apparently having sex on the beach and the other locked in a passionate kiss in the water, with the woman’s bare breasts clearly shown above the waterline, reports Fox News.
The ABS-CBN television network said it filmed the apparently Western couples at 2:00am on New Year’s Day following a large beachside party on Boracay to usher in 2011.
“We’re thinking of a ‘no sex on the beach’ [rule] so the other tourists would not be scandalized,” John Yap, mayor of Malay town that has jurisdiction over Boracay, told ABS-CBN.
Yap said authorities were aware of the sensitivities of the devoutly Roman Catholic nation.
“It’s an isolated case and quite difficult to control but, if police had seen them, they would have been arrested for public scandal,” he said.
In a brief phone call with AFP on Thursday, Yap confirmed the quotes. (ANI)
