The Military's Highest Court Has Ruled That it is a Crime For Troops To Make a Sex Tape

The Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces says troops making a sex tape is the equivalent to having sex in public

Making a sex tape is a crime under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the military's highest court has ruled.

While it is perfectly legal for civilians to make videos of themselves having sex, service members are prohibited from doing so because it is "both prejudicial to good order and discipline and service discrediting."

The Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled that making a sex tape — even if it is never distributed and nobody sees it — amounts to having sex in public, according to a decision issued on May 23.
