A clip went viral over the weekend depicting a couple – allegedly foreigners – going at it in broad daylight. Police say they have launched an investigation.
In the video, which was shared by Instagram account @buleleng_ngacuh, the man, who is wearing black shorts and white flip-flops, is slouched on the ground in front of a house. A woman donning a white dress can be seen riding the man in what looks like a really uncomfortable cowgirl arrangement.
The clip was taken on a small footpath in what looks like a residential area with people watching.
“Oh my God…,” one person said behind the camera.
“Let’s get out of here.”
An older foreign lady, who looks like a tourist, appeared in the video and jokingly said, “Let them finish.”
The post has been shared 192,000 times and liked 88,900 times per this article’s publication.
Naturally, as the video was uploaded by a Bali-based Instagram account, netizens immediately thought the sex in public incident occurred in Indonesia.
“Someone should’ve reminded them that this is Indonesia,” wrote one account.
“Someone should approach and throw water at them. Just like when cats mating,” wrote another.
One account implored the admin of @buleleng_ngacuh to be careful because, technically, it is illegal to share anything adjacent to pornography under Indonesian law.
Bali Police spokesman Stefanus Satake Bayu Setianto told Coconuts Bali that the police are investigating the clip. However, they suspect that it was not taken in Indonesia, let alone Bali.
“We suspect that it happened in Thailand. But we’re still investigating,” he said.
Over the weekend, House of Representatives (DPR) Commission III Deputy Chairman Ahmad Sahroni, who oversees legal affairs, also shared a clip depicting two foreigners having sex in broad daylight at a swimming pool, allegedly in Bali.
Ahmad has since deleted the clip from his Instagram. The Bali Police said that they concluded that the video was not taken in Bali after they checked bars and restaurants where it could’ve been taken.
“We suspect that it happened in Europe and the Balinese voice [in the clip] was dubbed,” said Bali Police Cyber Crimes Unit head Nanang Prihasmoko as quoted by detikBali.
