A 30-second video clip showing a couple having sex in an East Village outdoor dining structure is — not surprisingly — going viral. (Thank you to the many readers who tagged EVG or sent the link.)

It happened this past Thursday night around 9:30 outside One and One on First Avenue and First Street. Twitter user @layajospe wrote: "Just witnessed a lovely couple fucking in an outdoor dining hut on 1st ave." 

The clip, now viewed more than 4.5 million times, shows some pedestrians passing by not paying any attention... while a few others seem to be aware of what's happening here at the nexus of the universe

You can watch the clip here.

These must be the same people from that survey who said they strongly approve of sidewalk sheds. Now we know why.

Sigh...The whole city is out-of-control.

Yeah, we never had people having sex outdoors before. Never before. Out of control, really? It's just sex. in the dark. Jeez.

Excellent point, Anon @9:04 AM. A few years ago, I was going to the post office on 4th Avenue, and I passed a man talking to a young woman sitting on a low wall. She was naked from the waist down (and seemed a little disconnected mentally). By the time I came out of the post office, they were on the south side of 11th street, laying across the sidewalk, and school children and their nannies were literally stepping over them, as they were going at it, oblivious to their surroundings. I had to run into the middle of the street to get a cop car's attention, and report the activity. I'm not anti-sex, but live demos shouldn't be part of grade school education. So, indeed, these love-birds aren't the first to "do-the-deed" on our beloved streets.
