File Under "WTF?!"

Posted by The_Chef On 3:11 PM 4 comments

So apparently "Excessive Nudity" is now a crime....


See here.

... Now would someone please explain to me what the hell excessive nudity is. This makes absolutely NO sense. I thoght nudity was more or less an all or nothing kinda thing. Oh well... More power to those practicing excessive nudity.

I'm sure the cops enjoyed the show though...

    Um, I guess the ladies are only permitted to dance topless and they were, on this occasion, displaying their full glory to the world? *shrugs* It sounds like physical contact between the dancers and customers is also prohibited, and there was some of that going around, too.

    I've always been under the impression that "gentlemen's clubs" were softcore brothels. I guess it depends on state regulations.

    Most assuredly yes, but nudity seems to still be an all or nothing kinda thing ...

    And the Brothel statement might be a little over the top...

    Oh come on. There's such a thing as partial nudity. A topless woman is only half-naked. Strippers are required to wear thongs in some states, though I couldn't tell you off the top of my head which they are.

    "And the Brothel statement might be a little over the top..."

    *shrugs* What would you call a place a man can visit for a striptease + a hand/blow job? I've heard stories about these places. Ok, I concede that sex acts would technically be prohibited by law, but in certain areas of the country, the law convenienty overlooks the perks provided by strippers employed by gentlemen's clubs--a misnomer if there ever was one!

    "a misnomer if there ever was one!"

    Quite.
