Wisconsin wants people to stop having sex all over the nude beach

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has run into a unique problem. It seems, for some odd, unforeseeable reason, people keep having sex on the nude beach.

The DNR had to dole out 13 citations to amorous couples between June and October in 2013. These numbers are down from 2012, reports the Winona Daily News, but they might not necessarily reflect how common it is.

Wardens issued all the citations during a one week span of surveillance and they said they saw more couples caught in the act, but they scampered off before the cops could catch them. To attempt to curb lewd activity, the state began closing the beaches on weekdays, although it’s questionable how much that really helped.

Nathan Kroeplin, who supervises DNR law enforcement in Dane County, said, “Some of the stuff we cited people for was fairly discreet, but there was other stuff out in the wide open and never once did I see somebody come up and say ‘stop that.’”

The beach on the Wisconsin River, named “the Sandbar,” has been a mecca for not just naturalists, but people looking for trysts and drugs for awhile. The state first took ownership of it in the 1940s, and the area’s seen an exponential growth in nefarious activities. There was a spike in arrests for drugs and sex in 2011, which led to increased measures to close off the beach during night time.

Despite the headaches the beach has caused, including making you imagine Wisconsinites naked, the DNR says they have no plans on closing it anytime soon.
