“The driver called the police, it wasn’t enough to tell them off,” said Stefan Gustavsson of the police to local paper Göteborgs Posten (GP).

The police received a call just after 6am on Sunday after the man and the woman had been found involved in sexual intercourse on a local bus, which was carrying passengers toward Brottkärr in Gothenburg.

“The driver was bothered by what was going on and I guess the other passengers were also bothered," said Gustavsson to the paper.

The lovebirds, who seemingly couldn’t keep their hands off each other, were interrupted when the police entered the vehicle. Unperturbed by events they chose to continue their journey in a taxi.

Police didn’t know what had happened to them after that:

“You’d have to ask them – they seemed rather frisky on the way back,” Gustavsson told GP.

According to the paper the other passengers had not been “impressed by the performance.”

Despite being caught in the act in public, the couple are not under suspicion for any criminal offence.

Well, I've heard of free internet availability on buses, but not 3D porn. Damn, you got everything here in Sweden!!*!

funny when you call the police because of a crime they take ages or dont even show up.

but when its something harmless like public sex they seem the first on the scene.

Ha ha, some time ago here in The Netherlands there was this girl giving a guy a BJ in the back seat. Nobody cared. The amused driver noticed it and just switched off some of the interior bus lights

I remember clearly...;

I was that busdriver... ;-)

"Swedish girls regularly have sex everywhere, including with Polar Bears on the street corners of Stockholm, if they have not had any men in the last hour or so..." is a common racial joke/stereotype of Swedish women in many countries.

While most people know those stereotypes are not true, behaviour like this only enforces that stereotype... but it rarely seems to happen when I am on the bus :(

God, I love Sweden. I can think of this one gorgeous brunette I met on a bus in Gotheburg. I was too dumstruck that she introduced herself and I smiled and engaged in ordinary conversation. What a dweeb! Ths was the single most gorgoeus woman I have ever laid eyes on, showing interest in me, maybe flirting with me, and I did nothing! This was 15 years ago and it will haunt me for all of my life. Swedish women are quit simply the most beautiful women on the planet. If they want to have sex on a bus, (Cue Dr. Seuss - "...on a train, in the rain, in a car, at a bar,....), count me in :)

Why was i not invited ?

I live around the corner from the bus stop that they got thrown off at as per the GP article it was J A Wettergrens gata,


I have been in situations where I have stayed in dorms at hostels with couples having sex when there were other people in the same room but never come across it on a bus. Yes it would make people uncomfortable but what I would be more concerned with would be if there were children who witness this on the bus, hopefully there were none.

This must've happened in the mid 90s before Sweden became the politically correct state we currently have now..... I miss the 90s. I miss Sweden in the 90s. It was a dream. Women were open, didn't care about this and that. They were supercharged with more hormones than anybody else....I must have missed something the last ten years........

Sweden in the -80s was even better... If only someone could turn back the clock..!

The political correctness as of today is the new state religion of Sweden. It is a mass psychosis and a destructive disease spreading like cancer.
