To some residents of Midtown Manhattan, sex is a problem. Specifically, sex in cars is a problem and they've asked the Community Board to ban weekend parking on their streets.
The board granted the request, citing chronic drug use, double parking and rampant sex. Unfortunately, the board has no power to enforce the ban and is awaiting a review by the Department of Transportation. If passed, the NYPD will presumably get involved and start asking frisky fornicators to get a room.

Half the problem could take care of itself soon. Patrons of two nightclubs in the area are being blamed for the illegal displays of public affection, medication and parkification: The Parlour Midtown and Rebel NYC. The Parlour's liquor license is is under review due to "several violations."

And, by the way, if you're wondering how to properly do the backseat mamba, check out Carma Sutra (kinda NSFW) for some helpful tips. Just stay out of Midtown.

      How about.....who cares? If you are worried about people that are having sex in their OWN cars, you probably have nothing else better to do. Plus, NYPD can be extreme. They are not known to give warnings, they just give tickets and/or they will arrest you to get to their ticket/arrest quota.

          The parents of these children need to seriously reevaluate their parenting methods if these kids are up at the time of the night that this stuff occurs. I'm sure no one is getting any afternoon delight in the afternoon while parked in the middle of Midtown.

          Oh I know I am going to get an upvote for this. PEOPLE IN MIDTOWN....DO NOT HAVE HOUSES. THEY LIVE IN CRAMPED QUARTERS FOR 25 BUCKS A SQUARE FOOT. Now if you said Long Island, The Bronx, Brooklyn or Queens, you would have a valid point. But you do not. Have another down vote.

          I'm sorry but you are both completely shot, this stuff goes on at ridiculous hrs of the night no damn kid is gonna see this. The key word in this article is nightclub not public school or preschool.

      What a tourist attraction, free sex shows nightly. "Come and find out why they call us the city that never sleeps."

      How will they stop the sex in the parks and on the street outside of cars in some occasions.

      This is why the Maybach comes with curtains on all rear windows.

      How hard you need to do this type of activity to make a noise that is loud enough to get through all vehicle insulation and then to climb 2 floors to bother someone?

      and plus if you take havin sex in the car away... people will just find somewhere else. If people want to have sex in their own car they spend thousands of dollars for then let them be... who cares what they do I dont just keep it moving like u didnt see anything. Plus I doubt this will stop anyone lol

      So I guess that they don't understand that sex in a car is a good way to test out the suspension in your car .

      parkification is already illegal...but parking doesn't cause parkification, so why penalize (pen-pun intended) parkers?

      Wait until autonomous driving cars come into play. Wait, I said that wrong. Um, ehhhh, errrr uhhhh. Well autonomous driving cars would solve the parking and humping problem at least.
