Virginia anticipates need for more prison beds if oral sex is banned for teens

A Republican lawmaker in Virginia has proposed re-criminalizing oral and anal sex — but only for teenagers. State Senator Thomas Garrett, who calls himself a “Cuccinelli Conservative,” filed a bill on Wednesday to “amend and reenact § 18.2-361 of the Code of Virginia, relating to crimes against nature.”
