Donkey Love

I understand that some people are attracted to animals (and children, and inanimate objects and probably many other things I can't and don't want to imagine). But largely speaking, animals don't want to have sex with people. They only rarely go into estrus and when they do, it is others of their species that they actually appear to want. Animals can of course be trained to do almost anything. But that's hardly consent. There are laws preventing people from having sex with the mentally retarded - specifically those under the I.Q. of 80 - under the assumption that they are incapable of giving consent. Not sure if non compos mentos is the correct term in this case. There are no donkeys with anywhere near that kind of I.Q.

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but a serious case is now being made that our beloved Constitution gives us the right to have sex with donkeys.

First, the lawyers:

Over at Volokh.com, Northwestern law professor Eugene Kontorovich argues, "Bestiality is private sexual conduct and thus prima facie requires a very good justification to regulate. ... Insisting that bestiality bans simply regulate animal welfare is insufficient. Those regulations do not typically intrude on protected interests.

"Bestiality bans regulate human sexual expression. And in the Supreme Court's jurisprudence, sex is special."

Antonio Hayes, a fellow at Cornell Law School has what Kontorovich...
