Some couples seek to turn up the heat on their sex life by making love outdoors, perhaps even thrillingly close to where others might find them. Such tactics have taken on a whole other dimension at Brighton Beach, in East Sussex, where a couple made love in broad daylight, 9 a.m. today, a few meters from families and their children, much to the horror of some onlookers.
Simon Cummins first noticed the couple when he heard screams. Looking for a woman in distress, he instead found that the noise was the sexual moaning of a woman as she gyrated atop a man.
“It was broad daylight, the nearest families were 10 meters away if that, there were kids playing nearby. It was disgusting.
“I have young nephews and nieces and if I had seen that kind of thing going on in front of them I would have had a word.”
But he didn’t have a word with them, and those that did seemed to have other purposes. Nine men gathered around the attraction to take pictures and ogle, while one of them even attempted to join in.
“It was like an orgy or the last days of Rome,” Cummins complained. “It was a horrible sight to see. At one point a little boy pointed over at the couple and his mum had to haul him off in disgust.
“It’s not Ibiza at 3am in the morning, this is in broad daylight with families around and they just didn’t seem to care.”
As a thoroughly disgusted but otherwise attentive witness to the event, he said that “As it went on things got even worse when a few blokes seem to turn up and one of them looked like he got his kn*b out and she put it in her mouth. It was disgraceful.”
“When the police finally turned up I was shocked because it seemed to me they were almost scared about approaching the couple, and they just gave them a fine. They should have been locked up.”
Sussex police confirmed the incident, detailing that “Two people were arrested and given a fixed penalty notices.”
What seemed most shocking was that, in Cummins words, “The woman and man didn’t look like they were druggies, or disheveled, they looked like normal everyday people, except it looked like they were shagging on the beach in the middle of the day.”
Why the couple wasn’t in the nearby nudist beach is unclear, though such behavior is illegal there as well.
