Skydivers Who Had Sex Mid-Air Had Right Idea

Alex Torres is a porn star and part-time skydiving instructor who decided to combine his two loves and landed in a legal mess. Torres and Hope Howell, both of whom held jobs at Skydive Taft (she is the company's secretary) had sex in a plane before jumping out in tandem and continuing the act midair.

Now he has been fired, she may be and the FAA is examining them because, while there is no explicit policy against sex in private planes, any activity that could jostle a pilot or hamper his ability to concentrate could be a violation of federal aviation guidelines.

All that because these two people had sex? Give me a BREAK.


They purposely filmed the sex in the wee hours of early morning so that no one would be disturbed or see them (as if they could a mile in the air anyway). So what is the problem?

People are such unbelievable prudes. I see no issue with this and kind of like the idea of it taking off. Extreme sports and sex go together so well, it is hard to imagine why this is not more popular. The adrenaline rush from sky diving is amazing. The adrenaline rush from sex is amazing. Put them together and HELLO!

I have done both (had sex and gone skydiving) and I can say without a doubt that I would love to combine the two. Now whether I would is a whole other story. I mean, I have kids now and I can't be risking forgetting to pull the ripcord because I am in my happy place. But hey, for those who want to do it, awesome.

Seriously, why is this our business? If they had not jumped out of the plane and filmed it, no one even would have been the wiser. These people are being killjoys. If there were a video of them having sex in public and no one saw, would they be arrested for public indecency?

If so, that would be pretty lame. How is this a crime? I totally support the rights of skydiving sex.

Do you think this is wrong?
