Kenyan Court Says Anal Exams Legal to Determine Sex Orientation


A Kenyan court ruled Thursday that it is legal to use anal examinations to determine a person’s sexual orientation.  The case involved two men arrested on suspicion of having sex in a bar in February 2015.

The two men were forced to have anal examinations to determine their sexual orientation.  They were also required to take HIV and Hepatitis B tests.

Critics of the decision say the examinations are “degrading” and a form of torture.

Gay sex is a criminal offense in Kenya and can result in a prison sentence of up to 14 years.




  1. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you need to write more on this topic, it may not
    be a taboo subject but typically people don’t talk about such topics.
    To the next! Many thanks!!
