Police in Vancouver say they have received more calls about indecent expsoure and men masturbating in public since the beginning of October. 'Tis the season? 

According to authorities, most of the incidents have taken place between 5 p.m. and 7 a.m. (after work and before work, conveniently), but they aren't being reported until later. The Vancouver Police Department's Sex Crimes Unit is conducting an investigation, and there's been an increased police presence in areas where the crimes have been reported.

While police attempt to curb the perverts who just can't help flashing pedestrians or jerking off in plain sight, they have some safety advice for residents: Consider installing motion sensor lights outside of your home, make sure views into your homes are obstructed at night and call 911 at the sight of any suspicious or disgusting activity.
