In America, land of the free and home of the brave, people are free to do as they please sexually—to an extent. io9 created this hilariously informative map of the weirdest sex laws in the U.S., which is an eye-opener regarding attitudes about sex. A line must be drawn somewhere, but these laws are just bizarre.

The map is extremely useful, you know, for travel and potential relocation purposes. Everyone needs to know that you can get locked up for five years if you seduce a married woman in Michigan. In addition, there's a five-minute time limit on kissing in Iowa. In Utah, you can marry your first cousin, but only if you're fortunate enough to live until the age of 65. Finally, both Arizona and Texas regulate dildo quantities; you can't own more than six in Texas and no Arizona house can have over two


Let's go out on a limb and assume that sorority houses in Arizona are living outside of the law, unless communal dildos are a common practice somewhere other than on Bad Girls Club. Anyway, get familiar with the strangest sex laws in the U.S., it will simultaneously enrich your life and puzzle you.
