Will the whacking off ever stop?
In recent weeks, the usually sex-positive SF Weekly
has taken a rather puritanical stance on public masturbation, at least when the self-pleasuring comes on Muni (pun intended, very much intended). We wrote a screed against this behavior
a few weeks back after your narrator was subject to such nastiness on the bus we now refer to as the 8-XXX. We even made SFMTA spokesman Paul Rose dig through the 311 reports
to see how often riders are seen getting hot and bothered en route.
And now, we are here to report yet another unsavory pleasure seeker on Muni. Last Monday at 7:45 p.m., a woman witnessed a real wanker on the 38-Geary bus.
Here's how police summed up the activity.
As she was seated the suspect walked from the rear of the bus and stood near her. The suspect had his jacket draped over the front of him, and upon moving his jacket exposed himself to her and began to masturbate. The victim immediately moved to the rear of the bus and exited the next stop. The suspect also got off," (we're guessing the pun was not intended there) "and the victim went into a nearby restaurant, but the suspect did not follow her further. The victim went into the police station to report the incident.
Good for you, sister, for telling the cops!
As we know personally, the first impulse is to flee the bus and write about it on a local blog. But what's even more effective, Rose told us, is to just tell the driver. They will surreptitiously alert authorities of this Muni activity, which, we can safely say, brings other riders no pleasure.Follow us on Twitter at @SFWeekly and @TheSnitchSF
