Re: No mercy for naked Swiss hiker

Judges said the eastern canton (region) of Appenzell had been entitled to uphold a law on public decency.

They said the ban on naked hiking was only a marginal infringement on personal freedom.

Although Switzerland does not have a law against public nudity it does have one against public indecency.

Anyone found wandering the Alps wearing nothing but a sturdy pair of hiking boots will now be fined.

Oh wait!

You are still mad because I told you that you are making too much noise in here? Oh! Honey!

I am not liking you less because of it. I am sorry if I hurt your feelings! I am sending you a big hug and many many kisses!

LIB, pretty boy! You groaned at me?

You are the one who just said he doesn't have back boobs anymore! How one could tell without having seen it... And remember your comment on the rep you gave me? (Thanks by the way)

Though I think it's wonderful that Switzerland allows nude sunbathing and swimming in designated (FKK) areas for those who wish, open nudity along public hiking trails would be just wrong.
