Skydiving Sex Not Illegal, But FAA Investigates CA Sex Stunt

Is skydiving sex legal?

Believe it or not, some high school students' porn viewing has thrust issue onto the desks of Federal Aviation Administration officials.

Local police in Taft, Calif. were called to the high school last week after an interesting video made its way onto campus.

The video depicts porn star Alex Torres and friend Hope Howell taking off--and getting off--for a little in-the-air action. Call it the new Mile High Club.

A horrifying look at the video mostly shows the pair going at it mid-flight. As the flight continues over California air space, the over-the-top Howell saddles up. Then the two proceed to jump from the plane. A lot of jerking around ensues.

The last part of the amateur footage is actually kind of hilarious. Just be sure to click "mute" if you decide to watch the video in mixed company.

Local police have declined to file charges, according to KGET-TV. There was no public nudity, as no one saw the early-morning skydiving sex. Torres also posted the video on an age-protected blog, so he can't be punished for distributing low-budget porn to minors.

Still, the FAA isn't particularly amused. Federal aviation rules don't prohibit sex on private planes, but they do prohibit activity that distracts or jostles a pilot.

Loud sex is kind of distracting--especially when it's going on less than two feet away.

However, the pilot didn't seem all that distracted. He only looked back once or twice during the entire video, which is pretty typical when skydivers are on board.

Yeah, the guy has some serious brain power.

Speaking of which, let's just forget about whether skydiving sex is legal. How is it even safe? How do you even remember to pull your chute mid-fall?
