Filming your neighbours having sex

The Local is not responsible for the content of blog comments.

Sweden is the new haven for Peeping Toms, after a prosecutor dropped the charges against a 20 year old who was caught filming his neighbours having sex.

But interestingly, Sweden has very strict laws on bugging, with the police even finding it hard to get permission to eavesdrop. So be warned: in Sweden, you can watch your neighbours having sex – but you can’t listen.

Bubblare,  Scandinavia’s homegrown alternative to YouTube, must be girding its servers in anticipation of a wave of new productions - accompanied by some very dodgy amateur soundtracks.

    I know Swedes are “comfortable in their own skin” and are much more relaxed about public nudity, but it’s always the choice of the individual to expose themselves. To allow someone else to strip you of that choice should not be tolerated (pun intended). I hope this case will result in new legislation to prevent this from occurring in the future.

    Well if theay are worried about being seen,filmed or whatever, close the window shades.
