I rent a storage unit in a big storage building. Is it illegal

Resolved Question:

I rent a storage unit in a big storage building. Is it illegal for my girlfriend and i to go inside our rented storage unit and engage in quiet sex? She sais it is illegal, I say it isn't because it is an extension of our home, and it is not in public. In case it matters, we live in Louisiana?

Indecent exposure is a crime that is defined as exposing one's genitals or socially deemed "private parts" (such as behind or breasts) in a public place where others are present and may witness the act.


So since you are in an enclosed, non-public space, it would not apply.


You could not be charged with sex in public as you are not in an area normally exposed to the public and have a "reasonable expectation of privacy".


I do not see any violation here as long as the unit is closed off from the public view.
