A couple of lovebirds were filmed having sex on a beach in Thailand – but could be sent to jail if they are caught. Police have launched a manhunt for the tourists, who got amorous on Dongtan Beach at 8am after a night of partying.
Their identities are not known, but officers in the popular resort of Pattaya believe they are of western origin.
Onlookers said they had sex for more than three minutes before people started shouting at them to stop, and the couple disappeared down the beach.
Police say the couple have damaged the image of the popular tourist destination.
Police Colonel Apichai Krobpetch, superintendent at Pattaya police station, said:
”This happened in a public place where many tourists go to relax. The scene is in front of the Pattaya Marine Rescue Center.
”I do not know where the tourists come from but officers are pursuing them in order to protect the reputation of the area.”
Officers have now interviewed staff at the lifeguard’s hut on Dongtan Beach from where the pair were filmed.
The couple are believed to have been drunk. Officers are now checking CCTV to retrace their footsteps in the area and appealing to the public for more information.
The tourists face being fined up to 5,000 baht (around 115gbp) for public obscenity or jailed if they are caught.
Pol Col Krobpetch added:
”Police will investigate this and prosecute the people involved. This is very negative for the area.
”We have spoken to many witnesses are we are pursing the offenders. It is a crime to have sex in public like this and they will be punished.’

Meet 21-year-old Lady Who Gave Birth To A Baby Without Knowing She Was Pregnant
A teenager didn’t know she was having a baby until she was in labour because she hadn’t shown any signs of pregnancy.
Charlotte Thomson, now 21, of Newcastle upon Tyne, had regular periods and was still slipping into her size 8 dresses so had no idea she was expecting.
It wasn’t until she took herself to hospital with bleeding and painful stomach cramps that medics told her she was about to give birth.
Daughter Molly, now two, arrived two hours later.
Nursery nurse Charlotte said: ‘My stomach was completely flat, and I’d been having regular periods so it was such a shock when I found out.
‘I didn’t believe that I was actually pregnant until I gave birth. It was scary becoming a first-time mum with no warning.
‘But I wouldn’t change Molly for the world, and I feel so lucky.’
Charlotte, who fell pregnant with an ex-boyfriend, said she only put on 3lbs during her pregnancy and had felt more tired than usual but put the symptoms down to her party girl lifestyle.
‘I thought it was from going out all the time,’ she said. ‘I still managed to get into my clothes so I just ignored it.’
In December 2015 Charlotte woke in agony at 2.30am and realised she was bleeding profusly.
She said: ‘I took some paracetamol and hoped that it would blow over.
‘Instead, the pain just got worse and I was in agony. An hour later I felt like I was going to be sick so I ran to the toilet and saw that my underwear was full of blood.
‘I had just finished my period so I was really scared. I knew something was seriously wrong and booked a taxi to the hospital.’
Nurses at Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital examined Charlotte and told her she needed to speak to a midwife.
‘I told them that there had to be a mistake,’ Charlotte said. ‘I’d had no symptoms.’
The woman and her baby
But ten minutes later, a midwife performed an ultrasound and told Charlotte she was nine months pregnant and in labour.
Charlotte continued: ‘I panicked that I wasn’t prepared and hadn’t bought any baby clothes. I was so worried about what my parents would say when they found out that I was having a baby.’
At 4.30am, a nurse phoned Charlotte’s parents, Lynne Thomson, 50, a domestic cleaner, and Vincent Thomson, 50, an engineer, and told them their daughter was pregnant.
Charlotte said: ‘My parents thought that I was only a few weeks along and having a miscarriage.
‘I burst into tears when they arrived, and told them I had no idea that I was pregnant. They were really supportive and excited about their first grandchild.’
Two hours later, Charlotte gave birth to Molly.
Charlotte said: ‘As soon as I held Molly, I loved her so much. She was perfect and we had an instant bond.’
Doctors explained that she’d had no bump because Molly had been tucked up underneath her ribs.
Charlotte said: ‘It’s crazy to think that I’d been carrying a baby all that time.
‘When Mum called my work to explain that I’d had a baby, they were gobsmacked as they’d seen me the day before with no baby bump at all.’
Charlotte and Molly were discharged from hospital two days later – after Lynne rushed out to buy nappies and baby clothes.
Charlotte says: ‘My friends didn’t believe me until they saw a picture of Molly. Luckily I’m still a size 8 and didn’t need to lose any baby weight.
‘Molly has joined the nursery that I work at so I can take her with me, which is perfect.
‘Molly’s dad is an ex who is no longer in the picture, but I have plenty of help from my parents with the baby. I’m no longer a party animal but it’s worth it to have Molly.
‘I can’t wait to tell her the story of how I discovered I was pregnant with her. Nothing Molly could ever do in the future would surprise me as much as the day she was born.’
American Teacher Charged With Having Sex With Eighth Grader
A Florida teacher has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old boy, after the student alluded to her while speaking to his parents.
The eighth grader, from Volusia County, DeLand, says the relationship started in November last year when Stephanie Peterson began sending lewd pictures of herself to him.
The teen claimed the 26-year-old would come to his house late at night, pick him up and take him somewhere to have sex. Police have also said that Ms Peterson bought the boy marijuana.
The boy claims they slept together in the teacher’s car and in a barn and, after they were done, Ms Peterson would bring him home between 1-2am.
In a statement from the Volusia County Police Force on Wednesday, authorities say: “The victim reported that Peterson told him they couldn’t tell anyone about their relationship or they’d get in trouble. He also said she bought him marijuana and bowls for smoking it, and his grades suffered after their relationship started.”
Their claimed relationship was revealed when a different teacher contacted the boy’s parents to see if he wanted to be mentored. They joked to the victim about whether he was being groomed for sexual abuse and the boy, crying, replied: “Anyone could molest you.”
The mum and dad were concerned by the statement and suspected Peterson, as the teen was spending a lot of time with her. The Sun reports the boy went from an A grade student to failing as a result of him interacting with the teacher. It also reports that the boy claims Ms Peterson would buy the boy McDonald’s meals.
The police statement adds: “Peterson was taken into custody and was being interviewed this morning before transport to the Volusia County Branch Jail, where her charges carry $25,000 (£18,111) bond. She resigned her teaching position on Monday, according to the School District.
“Detectives are asking parents to talk to their kids, and anyone with information about any additional potential victims is asked to contact the VCSO Child Exploitation Unit at 386-323-3574.”
Peterson’s official charges are two counts of lewd or lascivious battery and one count of transmission of harmful materials to a minor. It’s unclear whether the boy is one of her students.
If you’re wondering what sparks these types of relationships, there’s no clear answer.
Psychologist Dr. Stuart Bassman told Fox 19: “There is a sense of power and control. There is a sense of being attracted to the innocence.
“There is an extent where a person is emotionally suffering and they seek out the comfort of another person and they do so in a very destructive way.
“It could have been that something like that happened to them or in a sense they don’t realise the harm, and in their distorted thinking they rationalize and justify that.”
