We know that Nordic cultures have a fairly liberal attitude towards sex, but this morning, John Stamos's lawyer is feverishly searching for information about the statute of limitations on Finnish sexual assault laws, or at the very least, some kind of legal precedent allowing for the old "swap and fuck" maneuver. From Page Six:
The actor was asked by Jane magazine, "What's the worst you ever screwed someone over?" He answered: "[In the mid- '80s] I was in a band. I was playing somewhere in Finland, and there was a girl hanging around who was really drunk and interested in me. I wasn't into her, but my friend was.
So the girl came back to my hotel, and I turned the lights down, and we started making out. I said, 'Hold on a second, I've gotta go brush my teeth.' It was dark, I left the room, and I sent in my friend who looked like me. And she thought she was having sex with me, but she was really having sex with my friend."
Stamos probably wouldn't be blabbing to Jane about his adorably rakish behavior (he didn't need to play the bongos for the Beach Boys to get laid, after all) if his flacks thought there is any chance of reprisal. Besides, this story line has already been approved and shot for the third episode of Jake in Progress.
