A writer from Mother Jones emailed the AG, inquiring as to whether he or any of his staff had ever committed a "crime against nature", he never got a response.

§ 18.2-361. Crimes against nature; penalty.

Any person who performs or causes to be performed cunnilingus, fellatio, anilingus or anal intercourse upon or by his daughter or granddaughter, son or grandson, brother or sister, or father or mother is guilty of a Class 5 felony.
