MEN are having sex with each other at a beauty spot in full view of dogwalkers and children.

Sussex Police have asked a woman, who wished to remain anonymous, to report her experience after claiming she saw a large gathering of naked men having sex at Goring Gap.

The jogger described the shocking scene as a group of men in more than 12 cars performed sexual acts on each other in full view of the public – including a child trying to learn to ride a bike.

She said: “I have witnessed men having sex in their cars ranging anytime between 8.30am to midday, there are dirty tissues, socks, empty drug bags all along the kerb.

“When I went jogging in the morning there were cars with men having sex, there were parents with children around and also dog walkers.

“One vehicle made me feel very uncomfortable and they drove past me slowly looking me up and down and asked me if I wanted to get in the car, to which I totally ignored.


“The man then drove to the end that is a dead end then drove past me again slowly giving me a threatening look.”

The woman said the incident has not yet been reported to police.

The jogger added: “I have now stopped jogging there as I feel uncomfortable being a woman.”

The area, also known as the cabbage patch, is a popular area for people interesting in dogging.

Dogging is a slang term for engaging in sexual acts in a public or semi-public place or watching others doing so.

Internet sites dedicated to people who enjoy dogging provide areas at which other people meet.

People can leave reviews on different areas after having visited.

User PinkTorpedo said about Goring Gap on “We’ve seen some great in-car dogging shows during the day and in the evenings, depending on the weather, you’ll find couples putting on shows bonnets or whatever they can find.”

Other popular dogging locations in Sussex include Dukes Mound in Brighton, Ditchling Common, Butts Brow going from triangle in Polegate and Foredown Tower in Hove.

In Great Britain, dogging comes under laws related to voyeurism, exhibitionism, or public displays of sexual behaviour.

Police can prosecute individuals for a number of offences such as section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986, exposure under section 66 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, or for the common law offence of outraging public decency.
