Four players lose their jobs after being caught having sex in the Bulgarian team locker room

In an incident that was described by some reports as scandalous, four soccer players were expelled from their club in Varna, Bulgaria, for having sex in the team locker room. The four were apparently expelled from the MAX club after being caught in a sex foursome in the changing room, according to the Sofia News Agency.

Coach Georgi Dimov confirmed the disclosure, saying that the gay players were kicked out for damaging the club's reputation, according to 7 Dni Sport newspaper. MAX is currently struggling to enter professional football and is negotiating with potential sponsors, the report said.

Outsports.com reports that Bulgaria has some pro-gay antidiscrimination laws. However, according to the International Lesbian and Gay Association, the Bulgarian penal code prohibits "scandalous homosexuality," homosexuality in public, and activities that may "lead to perversion." Violation of these laws can be punished with one to five years imprisonment and "social disgrace."

Early reaction from soccer fans on the SNA Web site range from outrage that gay players would be kicked off a team to understanding that sex in the workplace, gay or straight, is unacceptable. (Advocate.com)
