Dutch police and park rangers have admitted they are powerless to stop a growing trend of outdoor sex orgies. In the latest incident, a large group of people were found romping naked on a beach in the Bussloo area of the country. They including 10 couples who were being "particularly boisterous" with each other while the others watched.
But police called to the scene admitted they were powerless to act despite numerous complaints from other beach users, and could only give the naked orgy lovers a verbal warning.
The head of one of Holland's biggest national parks says the problem is getting worse and has called for the government to make clear guidelines on outdoor sex orgies to allow police to act.
Eric Droogh, who is director at the Veluwe National Park, said: "A national debate on wild sex parties in the countryside is essential.
"Police and park wardens currently have too little scope to intervene. The only possibility is to catch the transgressors red-handed.
"Outdoor sex is now commonly occurring in national parks and other public places. In some cases they just stopped beside the road in the picnic area or a meadow for the orgies."
He called for clearer guidelines and sanctions to deal with the outdoor sex phenomenon.
