Public displays of affection can be sickening in most situations, but a Kansas couple may have taken it to an extreme when they were arrested for putting on a Walmart sex show.

The Kansas couple was reportedly so enamored with each other that they just had to get it on in the middle of the Walmart. Right in front of other customers, 22-year-old Julian Call and 35-year-old Tina Gianakon allegedly began "sexually fondling" each other, reports the New York Daily News.

Perhaps feeling a little shy, the couple also reportedly stole a tube of K-Y Jelly to help facilitate the act. Surprisingly, police say the couple appeared sober.

The couple is cooperating with police and they now face charges for "lewd and lascivious behavior." Depending on the audience for their Walmart sex show, the couple could face misdemeanor or felony charges.

In Kansas, lewd and lascivious behavior is defined as publicly engaging in otherwise lawful sexual intercourse or sodomy with knowledge that they are being viewed by others. For the crime, someone can face misdemeanor or felony charges depending upon the age of the people who had to view the act.

Generally, if the people at the Walmart who saw the act were 16 years of age or older, Call and Gianakon would face misdemeanor B charges. However, if anyone under the age of 16 saw what happened, the couple could face a felony IX charge.

While both the misdemeanor and felony carry a possible six-month prison sentence, the distinction is important as Call and Gianakon probably will not want a felony on their records for the Walmart sex show.
