When it comes to having al fresco sex, this couple appear to be pushing the boundaries further than most.

Footage showing the pair in a compromising position on a motorway near Encarnacion has been handed to police in Paraguay.

Needless to say the semi-naked couple puzzled motorists driving past one of whom shot the video on their phone.

It shows the woman lying on the petrol tank with her skirt hitched up and her legs wrapped around the shirtless male rider.

Many have pointed out that neither were wearing a helmet but we suspect that is the least of their worries.
