WAUKESHA, Wis. (WUSA) -- Safe sex is a practice that is continually pushed on our nation's youth and for good reason. Avoiding unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases are just two reasons why contraception is encouraged in today's society. However, the concept of 'safe sex' is widely understood to take place between two consenting humans...not a human and a piece of furniture.
Enter Gerald P. Streator, a 46-year-old man from Wisconsin, who reportedly was arrested a few days ago for allegedly
having sex with a curbside couch. The Waukesha Patch reports that an off-duty police officer saw Streator "having sex with an abandoned couch set on a curb, according to a criminal complaint". If he's found guilty, Streator reportedly could be jailed for months and be required to pay a fine.
"At 11 p.m. Sept. 3, the off-duty Waukesha police officer was out for a jog on North University Drive near Pebble Valley Road when he spotted an abandoned yellow couch on the curb," Joe Petrie of Patch wrote. "He observed Streator by the couch and thrusting his hips as if he was having sex with a person. The officer approached Streator to see what was going on and yelled "what are you doing," which caused Streator to run away. The officer didn't see anyone else on the couch, but the officer realized Streator was thrusting it between the couch cushions for sexual gratification."
You know you've done something truly bizarre if you can say you've earned the nickname of "Curbside Couch Humper".
