‘Restaurant sex while kids watch!’

Families horrified as couple ‘have sex’ on a restaurant table.

Most parents try and keep as wide a gulf as possible between ‘adult time’ and their kids, avoiding tricky discussions until a child is old enough to grasp the concept of sex. No wonder parents with kids were horrified when a couple allegedly had sex on a restaurant table in front of families dining with children, refusing to stop even when approached by the restaurant manager, according to the Daily Mail.

Onlookers refuse to press charges

The copulating couple were lucky to avoid being charged for their public sex exploits, although they were arrested for refusing to pay their tab, as the shocked onlookers refused to press sex-related charges- despite the man, Jeremie Calo, claiming at the time that his date “couldn’t get up, as she couldn’t stop at this time”.

Passers-by told local news in Florida, US, that they were appalled that parents and kids were forced to endure the spectacle- prompting one mom to say:

'That's totally unacceptable and insane. I'm shocked. I can't believe that. would absolutely yank my kids, get them away from that situation and hope that they didn't see too much.'

Stop the cycle!

This question which comes to mind is, if you see something offensive being displayed in front of your kids, what would you do? Sometimes legal action is appropriate, but some parents choose to get their kids to just look/walk away. The restaurant-sex fiends could be treated as revoltingly inappropriate and ignored, but, when it comes to, say, a sex pest flashing at a school, or a possible molester on the loose, it’s always better to press charges, to avoid that person reoffending or escalating his behaviour...

What would you have done if you and your kids had been in that restaurant?
