A pregnant woman who is fisting in public is likely to be accused of not paying attention to the laws around public indecency and could be charged with a criminal offence.
A study of 2,000 public indecencies in London between 2002 and 2011 found that only 7 per cent of women in this situation were arrested.
The majority of women who were arrested were “not aware” of the laws.
Dr Andrew Pyle from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSEH&T) and colleagues wanted to know why.
We have to have the legal sense that these are crimes and the consequences are severe,” Dr Pyle told the BBC.”
So if you are in the public toilet and you’re being fisted, then you should probably be aware that it is criminalising your behaviour and that you may be fined.
“In a lot of cases, women who have been fisted are just getting off the toilet and are just looking at it from a distance and think ‘what the fuck am I doing here’.”
Dr Pyle said the researchers wanted to learn more about what actually happens in public places.
“If you’re sitting in the park and you don’t realise that you are committing a crime, you might be going on a shopping spree, and in a lot in public you don’st realise it is illegal to be in public with your trousers down and with your penis out.”
In the study, women were asked if they had fisted a man, a woman, or both.
The study found that nearly half of women had fished their partner’s penis off.
Of the women who had fissured their partner, more than three quarters said they had done so in public, while one third said they’d fisted them while sitting in a chair.
“It is a matter of public safety,” Dr Andrew Pyles said.
“The majority of people in public toilets, when asked about fisting them, are going to say they are not going to do it, or that they don’t want to do anything.”
What we want to understand is why they’re doing it, what is the intention behind it, and how do we make sure that they are protected and that we do not have a public health issue.
“In general, it is unlikely that a woman will be charged for a public indecence, according to Dr Pyles, who said it was up to the police to decide what action was appropriate.
But there are some things you can do to make sure you are not committing a public offence and get a warning.
If you are fisting your partner in public and your partner isn’t wearing a seatbelt, the risk of a charge for public indecently touching someone is very low, Dr Pyl said.
If your partner is wearing a belt, it’s very possible that you could be fined, or even arrested.”
But if they are fissuring someone’s penis and they are sitting in public in a public place, you need to be aware of it, that is what we’re trying to learn,” he said.
In general terms, a public order offence is the most serious offence, and is punishable by up to seven years in prison.
The LSEH &T said there are many reasons why a public-order offence can be a criminal charge.”
You might be asked to provide a photograph, and you may have to provide evidence of where you were to have your penis fisted,” Dr Adam Wilson, from the school, told the New Zealand Herald.”
Some people will have to produce their mobile phone, which could also give them the opportunity to be charged.
“The study also looked at what happens if someone is found guilty of public indecences in other countries.
The researchers said it is possible that public indecents can be brought to the attention of police or courts in other nations.
But, they said, “the likelihood of that happening is very slim”.
In the United States, if someone has a criminal record for indecent exposure or public indecent behaviour, they may face a misdemeanor charge.
In the UK, people convicted of public-exposure offences can face a fine, but can also be sent to prison for up to a year.
In Australia, a person who has been convicted of indecent exposure can be jailed for up
