Canadian PM Justin Trudeau promises anal sex equality

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pledged to change the law to equalise the age of consent for anal sex. At present in Canada, the federal age of consent is 16 – but for anal intercourse outside of marriage, the age of consent is 18.

Canada also still technically criminalises anal intercourse if more than two people are present, unlike other forms of sexual activity where no such restriction applies. The law affects couples both straight and gay, however indirectly discriminates against same-sex couples, as a gay male couple cannot have vaginal sex.

But in an interview with Canadian LGBT outlet Daily Xtra, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau said it was already being reviewed and he would change the law soon to eliminate the inequality.
