Article 75: Sexual activity in a public lavatory

7.149.Article 75 makes it an offence intentionally to engage in sexual activities in a public lavatory. Paragraph (1)(a) defines a public lavatory. The term "sexual" for the purposes of this clause is defined in paragraph (2). A definition distinct from that in Article 4 is used in Article 75 so as to include only sexual activities that a reasonable person would take to be sexual without knowledge of the purpose of the person carrying out the activity.
