Ohio couple accused of having sex on giant spinning Ferris wheel

A man and his girlfriend have been arrested after cops say they were caught having sex on a popular Ferris wheel tourist attraction 150 feet above downtown Cincinnati.

Cops say the couple’s sex romp on the SkyStar Wheel at The Banks Thursday evening took place in front of children and others, according to reports.

Michael Mathisen, 30, of Florence, Ohio, and Lauren Wilder, 31, of North College Hill, Ohio, were drunk at the time, according to court documents, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

A Fox 19 Cincinnati reporter tweeted a portion of his arrest slip which read, “Mr. Mathisen engaged in sexual intercourse in a public place (sky wheel fairest [sic] wheel) while intoxicated.”
