In Italy, public Masturbation is not a criminal offence. This decision was made public by the Supreme cassation court of Italy, which decided to cancel the earlier verdict against the 69-year-old male, who was arrested for masturbating in front of students.
As the court ruled, the criminal penalty is not applied even in cases when a person Masturbates, clearly wanting to be noticed.
It is noted that a resident of Catania in may 2015, was sentenced to three months imprisonment and a fine of 420 euros for 3 that practiced self-gratification in the presence of other people.
However, after the not so long ago the reform in Italy, public Masturbation is no longer considered by law as a crime.
Thus, the court freed the man from prison term, leaving in force the payment of the fine in the amount from 5 to 30 thousand euros.
