Having sex in view of the public is charged as Public Indecency in Denver, Golden, and Brighton. Having sex on a plane is not a new thing – there is a term for it – but I think it's less common for the sex to happen right in plain view of everyone on the plane. A passenger recently recorded the couple at the back of the plane getting frisky right in front of everyone. According to the video, the woman climbed right on top of the man and they were going at it with no shame. The video was posted online and has over 3 million views. If identified, the couple could face charges of Public Indecency.
