A spike in airline bookings has been blamed on the news that India's top court has ruled adultery is no longer a crime by striking down a 158-year-old colonial-era law. Holiday firms denied that they are cashing in on sex tourism.
This is the second colonial-era law struck down by India's Supreme Court this month after it also overturned a 157-year-old law which effectively criminalised gay sex in India.
Until the ruling, a man having sex with a married woman, without the permission of her husband, had committed a crime and in August 2017, Joseph Shine, an Indian businessman, petitioned the Supreme Court to strike down the law. Mr. Shine claimed it discriminated against men by holding them liable for extra-marital relationships, while treating women like objects.
The law, Mr Shine said, also "indirectly discriminates against women by holding an erroneous presumption that women are the property of men".
The Spoof spoke to a random couple who wished to remain anonymous, but who were willing to admit that they were making their way gleefully to a hotel for an afternoon assignation.
"Can you imagine how delicate the conversation has been around this?" said "Raj" when questioned on his motives. "Up until now, I have had to ask permission of Mr. Singh before fucking his wife. I mean what kind of system is that?"
Mrs. Singh also confirmed how embarrassing extra-marital sex had been until now. "Raj and I have had a thing going for a little while now and I actually had to get written permission from my husband and present it to the hotel receptionist before renting a room. It was so annoying, but now I can shag whoever I want, whenever I want. Sorry, Raj, but your days are numbered."
