Criticises the Scottish High Court of Justiciary ruling in Webster v Dominick which effectively abolished the offence of shameless indecency on the grounds: (1) that incestuous behaviour short of penile vaginal intercourse has been legalised; (2) the potential scope of public indecency; and (3) the lack of clarity on the mens rea of public indecency.
