RE:the term "indecent exposure "

Driving naked is illegal.Hiking naked is illegal.Walking around your neighborhood at night naked, is illegal.If I cant even look out my own window for fear that a neighbor will see me and be offended, then basically its illegal for me to be naked in my own house too.(Note to self). This website may encourage behavior that could have negative consequences on my life.Wake up dudes.

Hiking naked is not illegal in some circumstances and places and this fact has been stated clearly in some previous posts. One example of this would be in many federally-owned US National parks where nude hiking is allowed as long as the hiker is not doing anything which could be considered lewd or of a sexual nature. Another would be that my lady and I get to walk around our neighborhood naked at any time or day of the year. They call this idyllic spot White Tail Family Nudist Resort.

The internet is chock full of websites that encourage poor behavior and actions that are illegal. By its open nature it will probably always be that way, given that anyone can do or say or show most anything they want to. I dream of a time when we as a civilized society figure out a way to censor the outrageous and outlandish lies, slander and grotesque ugliness without impeding personal rights ~ oh, right, that's ludicrous. As proof of this fact, need I say more than - who exactly is Q-anon?

I'm wide awake, thank you.

Exposure is the exact opposite of indecent. It is freeing and fabulous! And there are places and times for it in America, but driving down a public highway is not one of them.

Is there such a thing as decent exposure? Sadly we live in the time of the nanny state where even breast feeding woman can be vilified for doing the most natural thing in the world. Given the amount of nudity and simulated sex allowed on TV these days and the easy access to porn online, people with no clothes on should be the least of society's worries.

Absolutely correct ausfarmlad. The amount of hypocrisy about nudity in say Australia and the USA is appalling. Some of the worst offenders are the 'upright religious, loud mouthed right wingers. Sadly, the Puritans of the 1600 and their descendants are worst bigots.

In the UK the term indecent exposure is no longer recognised in law. The term is now just exposure and applies to intentionally exposing genitalia for the purpose alarm or distress, i.e. flashing etc.

Just being nude in passive activities like walking, cycling, sunbathing, etc, is not illegal. The law that had indecent exposure has been repealed and when the media or police use this term it is totally erroneous and only to try to intimidate the public back to a previous time when nudity was threatened.

The media and police cannot accept the legality of nudity so perpetuate a previous legal framework. Shame on them trying to rewrite the law; not their job.

To my understanding, it is the behavior not the person or persons to which the term "indecent" refers. Indecent is an adjective not a noun

That attitude is what we call Pharisaical. Acting like the Priests and Pharisees of Christ's time who He condemned for their hypocrisy. which is all too common in religion. I was lust addicted and when I despaired of ever gaining the victory over it and earnestly appealed to God for help. He started leading me to naturism as the cure, and sure enough it was the cure. So all that anti-nudity agenda of professed followers of Christ is not of Christ. It's actually of the devil propagated as a setup to cause immorality, while tricking the adherents of the "morally clothed" agenda into thinking they are protecting societies morality with their fabric veil on humanity.

Yes, the natural human body is not indecent at all. Just as it is naturally. No more indecent than a horse running in a pasture. Only sin is indecent, defined as the transgression of God's law. Sin generates evil. And evil runs rampant making a horrible mess of our world.

I quite agree. The trouble arises when what we consider "decent" or "indecent" has no bearing on what legal definitions are. As near as I can ascertain, "indecency" is in the mind of the beholder. If you are naked and nobody cares, that exposure is decent. If somebody objects and takes the issue to the authorities, then it magically becomes "indecent." In some areas, you have to be acting in such a way that the display becomes suggestive, like masturbating in public or attempting to arouse others sexually. In other areas, simply being nude is illegal, no matter what you're doing (or not doing).

The point is that it's not your call.

That would be so great here. I rue the day the Puritans ever made it to the shores of America.
