Paraguay’s interior minister has said that motel sex orgies are banned as part of new COVID-19 lockdown rules.
Paraguayan interior minister Euclides Acevedo made headlines in Latin America for stating: “Motels and other reserved areas are allowed as two people together are not a crowd, unless there are 10 people taking part in an orgy, then it is not.”
The South American country has restricted the freedom of movement between the hours of 8pm to 4am to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, there are exceptions for those who need to continue working.
When asked about massage parlours, brothels and similar practices, the minister said: “Article 33 of our national constitutions guarantees the privacy of an individual. You can do whatever you want inside your home, unless you argue and bother the whole neighbourhood.”
He added: “If there isn’t a crowd in a massage room, four people can stay.”
According to reports, all casinos have been closed and street vendors are not allowed to sell their products on the street during the imposed measures designed to prevent the spread of the virus.
Local media said that 13 citizens have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in Paraguay. As of 20th March, none of the patients have died or recovered from the virus.
