Performing an act of sexual intercourse in public, including oral sex, is charged as Public Indecency in Fort Collins and Larimer County. A couple was recently charged with this crime for getting frisky in a restaurant booth. According to the report, the couple was sitting in a booth at a family friendly restaurant, when a manager and other customers saw the couple in the midst of a sexual encounter. It was reported that one was performing oral sex on the other for about 5 minutes before they left the restaurant and went to a nearby 7-11. If this had occurred at a Fort Collins, Loveland, or Estes Park eatery, Public Indecency charges would likely apply.
