JAKARTA (Reuters) - Unrelated people who kiss each other on the lips for more than five minutes at public places in the Indonesian city of Tangerang will face arrest, local media said Friday.

The government in Tangerang, a suburb west of Jakarta, defended the regulation as a practical guideline for its officers to follow up on tough and heavily criticized anti-prostitution laws passed by the city council last year.

"Please do not dramatize this. We will not arrest people at will as we are not oppressors," Ahmad Lutfi, head of the city's public order department, told the Koran Tempo newspaper.

Lutfi declined to comment on whether officers would be armed with stopwatches, Tempo reported.

It was not clear if the guideline referred to an uninterrupted five-minute kiss.

Kissing in public is generally frowned upon in Indonesia, especially in rural, predominantly Muslim areas, but giving a time limit for such behavior is unheard of.

So, yeah, PDA in Jakarta can place you in jail. I honestly believe that should be enforced here only if you're doing that while stopped at a stop light or anywhere else that impedes me from going places...or forces me to want to hit you.

So you can kiss people you're related to on the lips longer than five minutes?

Almost reminds me of the georgia law thats here saying "You are not allowed to kiss in public areas or show personal affections in areas that are sexual...I.E Holding the butt, Kissing the neck...A peck on the lips or a 5 second french is ok, but nothing deep....

Interesting point Jin... so all you have to say is "oh, she's my cousin so that law doesn't apply" and you'll be fine... unless they have incest laws as well.

Holy wtf... that is the most pointless and stupid thing I have ever heard of. Who would kiss someone related to them? Or who would kiss in public for more than five minutes? This law=redundant.

I think this makes sense if it is as you put it above kissing should probably be quick and simple in fast moving public area's.
