Swingers' clubs are legal in Canada, Supreme Court rules

Canada's top court today ruled that swingers' clubs are perfectly legal in Canada.

Before the ruling, the status of swingers' clubs was unclear. In two similar cases involving swingers' clubs in Montréal, one owner was found guilty of operating a "bawdy house" while another was found not guilty.

Chief Justice Beverly McLaughlin wrote, "Consensual conduct behind code-locked doors can hardly be supposed to jeopardize a society as vigorous and tolerant as Canadian society."

The decision clarifies that to be considered "indecent", acts must be shown to be harmful, not just against "community standards".

The usual people are objecting strenuously to this ruling of course. So if you're in Canada, take a minute to email your Member of Parliament and express your support of this ruling.

Update, December 22

The decision is important not only for swingers, but for all consenting adults in Canada who don't want the government intruding in our sex lives.

Next step—decriminalizing prostitution among consenting adults. (Currently protitution is legal in Canada, but with annoying restrictions).
