Outrage after couple caught having sex under a blanket in busy New York park

Sex in public is illegal in New York and is charged with “public lewdness.”

Shocking images of a couple appearing to have sex in a busy New York park while children played around them has sparked outrage online. According to New York Post, the video showed the couple getting intimate while “moving erratically” under a blanket in broad daylight in Manhattan’s Battery Park.

The woman who captured the clip shared the video on TikTok where it has racked up over 50 million views. “Trying to enjoy a beautiful Sunday afternoon in New York. Only in New York,” the video was captioned.

The report further states that the couple continued their public sex session until sunset, while another video showed the blanket still moving at dusk after the park had largely emptied.

Several people criticized the couple for their indecent act and called on authorities to charge them with public indecency. Some viewers also wondered why the cops weren’t called to the couple.

One person wrote: “Wait what? No one called the cops with all these kids around. »

Another commented: “Wait, once they’re done they just lift the blanket and continue living like nothing happened, ignoring the fact that everyone is watching.” »

A third said: “This couple went to a busy park in NYC, put a blanket on each other and thought no one would notice?!?! They couldn’t find a motel or something?’

A fourth added: “I want to see these regular people in New York charged as sex offenders for having sex in front of children, I’m so serious.” Our society is so disgusting.

Notably, sex in public is illegal in New York and is charged with “public lewdness.” According to the Gianni Karmily Law Firm, a misdemeanor conviction for a first offense of public lewdness can be punished with a fine and jail time or probation. .

Battery Park is a 25-acre public park located on the southern tip of Manhattan Island in New York.
