Incriminating Photo Of Gay Couple Arrested For Having Sex Surfaces (NSFW)
Ok, they didn’t deserve the humiliation, but right there you have a gigantic and moronic act. I mean, if you know you’re in a country where buggery laws are in the books, and still wanna fuck in your balcony on a ship that has docked, please do it on the side facing the fucking ocean.

DOMINICA: Gay Cruise Ship Passengers Charged With Public Buggery
Dominica News Online reports:
Information reaching DNO indicates that homosexual cruise ship passengers alleged to have been involved in public sexual acts are in police custody at the CID Department.
The police were called in after the men were seen publicly engaging in sexual activity.
One individual with information on the matter told DNO that “they were informed of the laws of Dominica and they were well aware that their acts would be considered a criminal offence”.
Police Chief Cyrille Carrette has confirmed that two males from California, John Robert Hart and Dennis Jay Mayer, have been charged for indecent exposure and are expected to appear in court on Thursday morning.
The men were also initially charge with buggery but Carrette said on Wednesday evening that charge will take too long to expedite, hence the men will only be charged with indecent exposure.
The visit of the cruise ship to Dominica apparently carrying only male passengers is generating heated debate online, especially on Dominica News Online after the website posted the story earlier Wednesday.
The ship evoked mixed reaction from observers who noted that “only men” were disembarking from the “Celebrity X Cruises” ship docked at the bayfront.
Some members of the public gathered there appeared not amused with the development.
A few told Dominica News Online that they were protesting what they consider to be “immoral behavior” on that cruise ship.
One hair braider told DNO that she was “mentally disturbed, first time I am seeing that in my life”.
Some eyewitnesses claim to have seen what they described as sexual activity taking place on the ship said to be carrying only male cruise passengers.
“It’s wrong, it’s dirty, they can’t do that so publicly. They need to respect us and our land,” another angry onlooker said.
Another individual said the nation should have been informed of the development instead of it being sprung as a surprise on Dominicans.
There was an SSU and reinforced police presence on the scene.
Busloads of only male passengers have been seen taking brief tours around the capital.
Gay cruise tourism has been a talking point around the region, with some islands more flexible than others about their approach to the matter.
RELATED: Here’s a more honest report by The Associated Press:
Police Constable John George said police boarded the cruise ship and arrested the two men on suspicion of indecent exposure and “buggery,” a term equivalent to sodomy on the island. He identified the men as John Robert Hart, 41, and Dennis Jay Mayer, 43, but did not provide their hometowns. George said the men were seen having sex on the Celebrity Summit cruise ship by someone on the dock. The two were later charged with indecent exposure and are scheduled to appear before a magistrate Thursday morning. If found guilty, they could be fined $370 each and face up to six months in jail.
UPDATE:Apparently, they could avoid going to jail if they pay the fines:
The charges were later reduced to indecent exposure – the charge on which they were found guilty by a Roseau magistrate. John Robert Hart 41, and Dennis Jay Mayer 43, were fined EC$2,400 each. The fines are to be paid immediately, failing which they will each have to spend two months in jail. The ship, Celebrity X Cruises, carrying about 2,000 passengers departed Puerto Rico on Saturday and arrived in Dominica on Wednesday. It departed for St. Barts without the men, who were at the time being held in a cell at police headquarters in the capital of Roseau.
Seems quite difficult to imagine that this would’ve happened if they had been a straight couple.
