Before you guys start hammering me, I'd like to unequivocally state that I do not condone pissing on the Tomb of the Unknown. That I would consider highly disrespectful and offensive.
But making out (and how do we know for sure that they are/were "swingers") on the grounds and parking lot of Vimy is not such a terrible act of disrespect.
I know, I know. Fornication is sinful. Fornication is bad. God forbid.
Weren't you guys ever young? Or are ya'll Viagra types?
Haven't you ever had a piece out in a rolling field in the fall? In the ocean in the summertime? In the back of a car? At a drive-in movie? While out in the boonies? In a snowbank at 40F below? In your girlfriend's house with her parents upstairs, etc., etc.... Maybe even in a graveyard?
Com'n, guys, I'm sure that there are some of you who wouldn't have a problem adding to this list.
Oh, Steve, in response to your question ... there's and old road that runs along the side of the property that leads down to the lake behind the house. The road, a couple of hundred years old and more a wide trail than a road, ends at a beautiful, scenic clearing overlooking the lake. I often (especially after weekends) notice tire tracks, and on occasion, horse tracks leading down to the clearing. What a place for a young couple to make out! Hey, it doesn't bother me. The only trash I've ever seen back there was one dirty, old, discarded sneaker. A Nike, at that.
Now, from what I understand, those couples in France may be in for a bit more of a thrill than kinky sex in public. Apparently there is much unexploded ordnance in the fields surrounding the memorial left over from the War. Getting blown up is not exactly what one would have in mind for a BJ !!
