    Actually going topless is not classed s public indecency in Australia or for that matter the UK.
    Though it is usually inadvisable to argue with a policeman if asked to "cover up"

    I've got no interest apart from hobbymedical in mens breasts. If anyone had any interest in my aged mammaries, I'd feel I had to direct them elsewhere.
    Anyone , and at my age, plenty, who gaze upon my withered, wrinkled, shrivelled ancient body, and don't recoil in horror, really are not going to have a big bunch of empathy with Ms Getemoutwithsparkleson.

    Well, I've already pointed out that she and her friend are guilty of assault, as is the man. They might plead retaliation as mitigation but, again as I've pointed out, they could have gone to the authorities instead. I don't accept that she was being publicly indecent but I think he was.

    that being said, the first thing i did when a bloke groped me on a dance floor for the third time in 5 mins was backhand him across the face. i'd already asked him to stop. unfortunately for him, i'd forgotten the large diamante rings i was wearing.
    i was not going to go and search for a bouncer in a crowded nightclub only to find the git had disappeared.
    i didn't get bothered by him again.

    i don't think he thought i meant it.
    i don't advocate violence in general. but if someone interferes with my nether regions, they're going to get a hard slap.

    We tend to be 'fair game' at the front of a gig too.

    Is it not self-defence?

    Your reaction and mine. Even a comment I thought misplaced - and I'm not strict - would result in a slap and it was almost invariably accepted as what you get. Now I know I've had "welcome to the 70s" comments but you can have a law. You can enforce it. Most time, nothing will happen. I think the same about slapping a defiant 6 yr old. They need telling. Now. In a way they remember.
    But today - Drunk guy gropes you. Slap him. But hope you have 10 gfs with phones around you and all his drunk mates are throwing up somewhere.

    You aren't wrong, I was sitting on the grass at a festival once when a woman trailing about 6 children under 9 sauntered past with her partner just as a slight gust of wind drew her rather flimsy skirt up to reveal what can only be described as commando... big style! There is nothing like a couple of huge hairy, tattooed flaps adorned with rather large and no doubt valuable silverware to put you off your Cornish pasty. :p

    Nice clip but I'm still clueless, was I asking the wrong person? :confused:

    @Spiritwalkerness i quite agree. some gigs have been very - uncomfortable.
    @racroesus if i hadn't done it then, it would have got nastier for both of us, i reckon
    this was in the days before phones could video

    In the news today, a man wrongly convicted of touching a woman's breasts during sex with her:

    Junior doctor has conviction quashed after he was found guilty of assaulting a woman by grabbing her boobs during sex


    'A JUNIOR doctor found guilty of grabbing a Tinder date's breasts during consensual sex has had his conviction quashed.


    Advocate David Steenson, who was representing Queree, argued there was insufficient evidence in the case for Magistrate Bridget Shaw to have come to the decision she did.

    He said that the charge of indecent assault was never appropriate for the case and that his client should have been charged with common assault or grave and criminal assault instead.
    TheSun.co.uk, 5th January 2017.

    Of course sexual assault is always wrong but you do wonder just what was going through the minds of the Police and the Crown Prosecution Service when they brought this particular charge to law.

    Obviously, each couple or group should agree a comprehensive written action plan before any attempt at interaction.

    I've got this vision of men and women wandering about with their heads down, eyes fixed on the pavement. Permission sought before looking up in case the addressee perceives the look to have lingered too long in one spot.

    Any day now some dim, publicity-hungry MP will call for Tinder to be regulated.
