Some Middle Eastern countries recognize the following Islamic law:  "After
having sexual relations with a lamb, it is a mortal sin to eat its flesh."

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the
animals must be female.  Having sexual relations with a male animal is
punishable by death.

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals, but is
forbidden from looking directly at them during the examination.  He may only
see their reflection in a mirror.

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of  a corpse.  This also
applies to undertakers; the sex organs of the deceased must be covered with
a brick or piece of wood at all times.

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and
deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for
the first time. Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for
virgins to marry. (Now let's just think for a minute...Is there any job
anywhere  else in the world that even comes close to this?)

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous
husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. (The husband's lover, on
the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.)

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in tropical
fish stores. (Of course!!)

In Cali, Columbia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first
time this happens her mother must be in the room to witness the act.
[Aha!  That explains a lot... Oh wait, that's Cali, Columbia, not Columbia,
 Calif...  -psl]

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and
her daughter at the same time.

In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one
exception: prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only "in
places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises."
