    I perhaps need to dig out the old "Necro Donor Card" that doubled as a flyer for a night called Black Sheep here in the UK. Scan to follow if I can find it...

    I particularly like David Mitchell's take on the relative offensiveness of necrophillia compared to other social taboos.

  3. After you've opened that door, do you really think you have a say as to "What type" of sex you will allow with your corpse? Who will police that part? Supposedly your family?!

    I like how the tickyboxes are on the right instead of the left, thus encouraging people to approve behaviors they may not actually have intended to, a la the 2000 Palm Beach butterfly ballot.

    (Although maybe it's a britishism.)

    Aw. That reminds me of that song by The Doug Anthony All Stars. Part of it went something like:

    Pas-sive necrophilia!
    Pas-sive necrophilia!
    Pas-sive necrophilia!
    Rigor mortis makes me hard! Hey!

    I've been wondering about this for the last decade. Ignoring the social taboos is the main legal issue with necrophilia really one of consent or is it a public health issue related to keeping potentially decaying bodies around? As I saw it both could be easily remedied. I always wanted to inquire about the legal grounds for someone wishing to provide prior consent for post-mortem sex.

    It's interesting to think that I'm not the only one.
