Dutch Consider Ban on Toe Licking

I signed onto AIM today and saw this headline. I thought I should share the news.


AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - Toe-licking could become a criminal offense in the Netherlands after a man who licked the toes of several women was released by police without charges.

The toe-licker, whose name was not released, was arrested in Rotterdam earlier this week after a woman who had been sunbathing said he unexpectedly licked her bare foot.

Other women had also complained, and the 35-year-old man has reportedly been pursuing his fetish for years, but prosecutors in Rotterdam said they are powerless to stop him.

``A lick over the foot doesn't qualify as a crime: there has to be some kind of objective sex act committed,'' said prosecution spokesman Cees van Spierenburg in the Rotterdam Daily newspaper. ``That's the way the law is.''

Lawmakers Peter van Heemst and Aleid Wolfsen, members of the leading opposition Labor Party, asked Justice Minister Piet Hein Donner in a formal complaint to change the law.

``How can you explain that we can prosecute someone for throwing a cigarette butt or soda can on the ground, but not for this kind of misbehavior?'' the men wrote.
