Norwegian Court Upholds Fines For Sex Stunt On Stage

The couple who had sex on stage during a Norwegian concert this summer were ordered to pay their fines by a court in Kristiansand Tuesday (Nov. 16), according to Nettavisen. They had claimed their sex stunt was a political statement, and said they will appeal.

The court has sentenced Tommy Hol Ellingsen, 28, and Petra Leona Johansson, 22, to pay the fine of NOK 10,000 (approximately $1,570) each for having intercourse on stage during the Quart music festival this summer (see previous BLABBERMOUTH.NET stories: Story#1, Story#2, Story#3, Story#4), reported the Norwegian television channel NRK.

The couple's performance lasted for only ten minutes during the CUMSHOTS concert, but was enough to shock the world. They claim they wanted generate attention for the rain forest.

Kristopher Schau, front figure of the CUMSHOTS, and one other band member have paid their fines of NOK 10,000 (USD 1,570) each. The remaining band members pleaded not guilty, but the court has sentenced them to pay the same amount for allowing the stunt.

"I can't honestly understand why you refuse guilt," said Ingrid Thorsen, public prosecutor and police prosecutor when the case opened Tuesday of last week. "Did you not see that a fuck could overshadow your cause?"
