New Eats for U St/Logan

Mexican, Thai, Spanish and a mystery are on their way — and bocce’s here already.

Mexican - a 274-seat tacqueria is coming to 14th St. next to the Black Cat, in the space formerly occupied by Georgetown Refinishing. (Prince of Petworth)

Thai - a new Thai joint, Teak Wood, is coming to the 1300 block of 14th St., below P. (Borderstan)

Spanish - The new pintxos spot, Estadio, is slated to open in minutes. My tastebuds can’t wait. (Metrocurean)

Mystery - The former Garden District spot, once rumored to become a burger joint, then crepe place, then nothing, is seeing activity. A permit notice posted lists “BCI Food Services LLC” as the applicant. (PoP)

Bocce - Vinoteca now has a back patio, complete with bocce court.  (The indomitable PoP)

Sex, Laws and Washington

It’s apparently a common claim that Washington, D.C. law forbids sexual intercourse in any position other than missionary. (For example; or here; or here.)

D.C. code is online, and some (take it from me) thorough searching could find no such law.


It did turn up some good material from the city’s obscenity statute, governing what can and can’t be produced, sold, marketed, or shown to minors. Its author started off with his tie a little loosened, but picks up steam:

(B) The term “nudity” includes the showing of the human male or female genitals, pubic area or buttocks with less than a full opaque covering, or the showing of the female breast with less than a full opaque covering of any portion thereof below the top of the nipple, or the depiction of covered male genitals in a discernibly turgid state.

(C) The term “sexual conduct” includes acts of sodomy, masturbation, homosexuality, sexual intercourse, or physical contact with a person’s clothed or unclothed genitals, pubic area, buttocks, or, if such person be a female, breast.

(D) The term “sexual excitement” includes the condition of human male or female genitals when in a state of sexual stimulation or arousal.

(E) The term “sado-masochistic abuse” includes flagellation or torture by or upon a person clad in undergarments or a mask or bizarre costume, or the condition of being fettered, bound, or otherwise physically restrained on the part of one so clothed.
