Generally, honeymoons should be sex-filled jaunts, but the general rule is that the sex should be with your new spouse, and not, say, an Orlando-area prostitute you met online. Especially when your new spouse doesn't know about it.

A 21-year-old man named Mohammed Ahmed was charged with solicitation of prostitution after he snuck away from his wife to try and commit such an act.

Ahmed was caught up in a larger sting operation conducted by the Polk County Sheriff's Department.

A resident of Illinois, Ahmed was staying at the Omni Hotel in Champion's Gate, Florida in the Orlando-area when he decided to browse the internet for prostitution ads. He apparently found a lady to his liking and made arrangements to meet. Though, when he showed up he realized he was actually talking to an undercover detective and was popped with a charge of soliciting prostitution, and another charge of possession of marijuana for good measure.

Meanwhile his wifey remained at the hotel and grew worried when he didn't return. So she called police to report him missing. She was then informed that he had indeed been arrested.

All-in-all the sting operation, which lasted from May 8th to the 11th, netted 92 arrests, including Samuel Yoon, a 45-year-old youth minister form California in town for a ministry conference who thought he was meeting a 14-year-old girl for sex.
