No, I didn't see your previous post sorry. Could you provide the reference for said Case law so that I can have a look at it? Because I do know that in the State of South Australia and Western Australia it is illegal to have sex in a public place and a public toilet is indeed deemed to be a public place, the closing of a door does not automatically deem it private. Granted, there used to be a specific offence for “gross indecency between males in public” and men who had sex at beats were often charged with this. However, this offence no longer exists as it was considered discriminatory, but there is still the general offence of committing an indecent act in public (or, in some cases, in private). So it still means that if you have sex at beats, you could still be charged with a criminal offence. You can also be charged with an offence for loitering as solicitation also draws a very fine line.
It could well be argued that sending an unaccompanied young child anywhere in public could be unsafe but in the context of this thread, the meaning pertains to beats in public places such as parks and toilet blocks.
An accompanied child can also be endangered.
So in keeping with this, what can be done to eradicate this disgusting practice?

Actually I googled those sites and I realised I've been approached before! Pre kids I was waiting for dh near melb airport, at one of the spots listed. I got out of my car to see the planes pass over, and as I stood there a man got out of his car and came towards me, but when I looked away he just kept going and then doubled back to his car. I didn't feel threatened cos he didn't come close but definitely uncomfortable. So I got in my car and left. Damn I could have got some if only I'd known
And recently at a local lake (which is also listed) I was walking on a bush path when I came up on a loitering man (I'm never going to hear that word innocently again). As I came near he calmly disappeared into the bushes, and he came out again after I'd passed. That DID freak me out a bit, having a weird man behind me, so I legged it and haven't gone back there since. I don't think I was in any danger, I think he was waiting for a lunch time rendezvous but still

I knew these places existed after a gay friend years back admitted to me that he occasionally visited beats at night. At the time I was shocked but mostly just concerned for his welfare. He said to me that in his experience, they're pretty safe and that in a strange way, it's a community of people who look out for one another, to the point of putting the word out (online I guess) if there's been any weirdos hanging around.
All sounds a bit less grubby than what I'm sure the reality is, but I guess the fact that SO many of us don't/didn't even know about the existence of these places until reading this thread, says something.
I'm a bit confused about the comments around children's safety though. Do people think that because a place is used for gay hook ups, that somehow children in the area will be put at risk? How exactly?
Not trying to be facetious, genuinely curious!

Basically It's dirty, unhygienic and these children could walk in at any time.not only that but it's attracting all sorts of people to the area, some perhaps may be a bit dodgy.
Before you ask, yes this happening during the day as well as at night.

Found this one by googling my town and meet up spots.
This one is for a public toilet, the part that makes me uneasy is where it says "lower risk of kids getting in the way of adult fun"
:what: there is so many things wrong with that... I can't even... Just no.
If my child ever walked in on something like that I would be livid.
Why have sex in a place that children frequent? I remember I huge debate on here about sex in public places like children's play grounds and everyone freaking out over the fact that kids play on them after adults have sex on them (was the thread about the swingers club at a indoor play center, people moved on to taking about sex at public play grounds) how is public toilets any better than this? It's not.
I have no issues with sexuality, but people should have respect and use a hotel or something more private where kids don't "frequent" and destroy "adult fun"
