Illegal Bedroom Activities: Of Varieties and Flavours

The Star:

Oral sex, described as “carnal intercourse against the order of nature” under Section 377A of the Penal Code, is illegal in Malaysia and carries a maximum penalty of 20 years jail and whipping.

Under the section, anal sex is also illegal.

Paul Jambunathan, consultant clinical psychologist at Monash University Malaysia and Sunway Medical Centre, points out that although oral sex is not considered abnormal in the psychology of sexual behaviour, it is considered illegal in many countries.

“Laws are based on the socio-cultural system of the country and that has to be respected. So, oral sex can be considered as illegal, not abnormal,” he says.

Many couples in Malaysia, including married ones, engage in the act and consider it as an important component to foreplay and sexual stimulation, he says.

“If they are adults with mutual consent, it should be fine,” he says.


Section 377 of the penal code prohibits heterosexual and homosexual sodomy with punishments including up to twenty years in prison and/or fines and flogging.

So if oral sex is illegal in Malaysia, then why do they sell flavoured condoms openly at supermarket checkout counters, 7-Elevens and pharmacies? And why do local manufacturers produce them?

Then again, married couples shouldn’t even need the STD-protection of a flavoured rubber…

    More for those who want to control when they have children. Quite common in urban areas where family planning is high

    This one should have spent more time on illegal bedroom activity instead,2933,588627,00.html

    Technically, the manufacturer advertises a variety of fruity flavours/fragrance, though I’m not sure coffee flavour/fragrance would be my first choice for lovemaking. Then again maybe it goes great with the early morning quickie.

    In any event, It’s only a crime if you get caught.
