Uganda President tries to ban oral sex because ‘the mouth is for eating’

The president of Uganda has said he wants to ban the nation’s citizens from practicing oral sex because ‘the mouth is for eating’.

President Yoweri Museveni blamed ‘outsiders’ for trying to convince Ugandans to perform oral sex on one another – and said he was issuing a public ‘warning’ about it.

He told press: ‘Let me take this opportunity to warn our people publicly about the wrong practices indulged in and promoted by some of the outsiders.
‘One of them is what they call oral sex. The mouth is for eating, not for sex.

‘We know the address of sex, we know where sex is.’

Museveni signed the Anti-Homosexuality Act in 2014, making it illegal to be gay in Uganda.

Ugandans risk life imprisonment if they are found to be having regular gay sex.
The act also made it a criminal offence not to report someone for being gay.

In 2014, after introducing the law, Museveni said oral sex could cause worms.

‘You push the mouth there, you can come back with worms and they enter your stomach because that is a wrong address,’ he said.

In January, he said he regretted his decision to halt the country’s practice of executing criminals.
