3. Procuring gross indecency by man with man

It is an offence contrary to section 118K of the Crimes Ordinance (Cap. 200) to procure a man to commit an act of gross indecency with another man.

The maximum penalty for the offence is 2 years imprisonment.

This offence covers situations where gross indecency is in fact brought about by the defendant but there is no threat or hostility towards the person doing the indecent act. Paying a person to perform a grossly indecent act upon a friend would amount to procuring: your request and your payment brought about the grossly indecent act.
