NZ Judge Allows Parade of Topless Porn Stars

NZ Judge Allows Parade of Topless Porn Stars

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A New Zealand court has allowed a parade of topless porn stars on motor bikes to proceed on the main street of the country`s biggest city, local media said Tuesday.

But Judge Nicola Mathers said while opponents may find the parade offensive or tasteless, the fact that 80,000 people had gathered for a similar event last year meant a significant number of people did not agree with the critics, New Zealand Press Association said."  -Reuters

I don`t find nudity offensive, but everything has its time and place. Nudity on a private beach is OK, but topless porn stars jiggling down the main street of a big city is not. There are many individuals who are offended by public nudity who won`t be able to avoid the spectacle because they own businesses on main street.

I find Judge Mathers` ruling illogical; because thousands gathered for a similar event last year doesn`t mean that most folks don`t find such displays offensive.

Most Americans would agree that it`s immoral, unethical and offensive to torture a suspect to gain information, but if a suspected murderer was tortured live on TV it would be a ratings blockbuster. Human nature being what it is, sometimes we indulge in activities or pay to see things that we know are morally wrong.

Hundreds of topless porn stars on bikes may or may not be offensive to most people, but to me it`s a horrifying scenario. I find nothing sexy about a woman with huge fake breasts, it`s an unnatural and horrifying sight. In fact, that`s a good premise for a horror flick: Attack of the Army of Psycho Silicon-enhanced Porn Stars!
