Oral sex with animals is now legal in Canada
Canada has declared oral sex with animals legal.
Any sex act with an animal that doesn’t involve penetration is to be considered legal in Canada, following a Supreme Court ruling.
A man known only as DLW was convicted of numerous offences after sexually abusing his stepdaughters, one of which was bestiality.
The British Columbia resident chose to appeal this conviction – winning at the Court of Appeal – before the Crown appealed this decision to the Supreme Court.
Canada’s highest court ruled that “the term ‘bestiality’ has a well-established legal meaning and refers to sexual intercourse between a human and an animal.
Penetration has always been understood to be an essential element of bestiality.”
To broaden the definition is parliament’s job, the court said.
“Parliament may wish to consider whether the present provisions adequately protect children and animals. But it is for parliament, not the courts to expand the scope of criminal liability for this offence.”
The court ruled by a majority of 7-1 that bestiality required penetration, but the dissenting judge insisted “parliament must have intended protection for children from witnessing or being forced to participate in any sexual activity with animals.”
