Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Sex outside of marriage may become illegal in Indonesia

No sex please, we are Indonesian... And theoretically, Indonesian law also applies to tourists and foreigners living in Indonesia.

Draft proposals in Indonesia aim to ban extramarital sex
29 January 2018
JAKARTA: Indonesia's parliament is drafting proposed revisions to the national criminal code that could ban all consensual sex outside marriage, sparking alarm among activists who it would breach basic rights and could be misused to target the LGBT community.

The parliamentary committee drawing up recommendations to change the Dutch colonial-era criminal code has still to finalise its proposals.

But a draft, seen by Reuters on Monday, included measures to criminalise extramarital sex, same-sex relations, and co-habitation, all of which were previously unregulated by law.

Adultery is already deemed a crime in Indonesia, the Southeast Asian country with the world's largest Muslim population.
