BDSM and The Law

 
Illinois

This is NOT legal advice.

The statutes of Illinois define sex these ways 

Unfair laws set and sometimes applied by the morally righteous . If you live in Idaho  and do not like these laws then ask your  Legislators to change them.

The age of consent in Illinoiso  is 17 years old as defined in IC 18-6101.

In Oblong, Illinois, it's punishable by law to make love while hunting or fishing on your wedding day.

A state law in Illinois mandates that all bachelors should be called master, not mister, when addressed by their female counterparts.

There is, in fact, an Illinois law that prohibits a number of things—one of which is a public erection, another is nude dancing. The prohibition against the public erection has never been challenged in the Supreme Court, but the prohibition against nude dancing has.
