C. Buggery

Buggery occurs where there is penetration of the anus by the penis.


The act of buggery itself is not illegal in Hong Kong. A person who commits an act of buggery is not punishable unless he has committed buggery in a prohibited circumstance, e.g. without the consent of the other party or buggery committed with a girl under the age of 21 or a boy under the age of 16.


For homosexual sexual offences involving children, please refer to “Homosexual buggery with or by a man under 16”.
