“Free The Nipple” Now In New Zealand Which Has Liberal But Ambiguous Topless/Nudity Laws.

by Anura Guruge



As someone who goes topless as often as I can, I have always been a big proponent of toplessness — whether it be people or cars.

I fully support a female’s right to go topless.

The one gripe I have had with the “Free the Nipple” movement, especially the New Hampshire arm, is that you can’t PROTEST for ‘freeing the nipple’ when the LAW already permits (or at least does not stop) female toplessness.

So, I basically don’t agree with PROTESTING to free something that is ALREADY FREE. To I that just feels wrong and an insult to all of those, worldwide, that are protesting against things that are unreasonably banned.

On that vein, the situation in New Zealand is interesting. Basically they appear to have no statutes against nudity. That is different from say New Hampshire which has a statute that says female topless is not against the law. Hence the ambiguity. Not having a law is sometimes not the same as having a law that says something is permitted or not. So on that basis I am all in favor of this movement in New Zealand.

Google “New Zealand Free The Nipple” for much more. Even pictures. {SMILE}

This, as I said yesterday, is now my greatest fear as to what could happen after the planned Sunday, August 23rd, 2015, Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, Free the Female Nipple” extravaganza. IF NH starts enacting NEW female topless legislation it would be such a SHAME. Regressive.

The irony of ironies.

A “Free The Nipple” movement, making a fuss when the nipple is ALREADY FREE, causes the Nipple to be legally banned.

Then what?

The more I think about it the more I am getting perturbed and agitated.

The female nipple is New Hampshire, as it should be, is already FREE.

Free is as a bird.

Other than in Laconia, NH, there are no topless laws to STOP females from going topless.

It is NOT the nipple that is NOT free, it is the women who are reluctant to EXERCISE their FREEDOM.

The Nipple is already FREE.

There is no need for a show and tell, a song and dance, just do what you want topless.

IF the Hampton event leads to legislation I will be so bummed.

Talk about taking victory, which is already here and present, and feeding it to the jaws of defeat.

Why? Oh, WHY?

I am dreading Sunday. It could be the DARKEST DAY for female toplessness in NH.

IF The ‘Free The Female Nipple’ New Hampshire Hampton Beach Event Backfires I Will Be Bummed!

IF as a result of the well intended “Free the Female Nipple” movement emancipation event planned for Sunday, August 23rd, 2015, at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, new laws are enacted to restrict toplessness in N.H. it would be a crying shame.

That is my fear now. We could see a vicious backlash. Today, other than in Laconia with its City-specific ordinance, toplessness is not against the law — as befits the “Live Free, Or Die” State.

I would be so upset if they start putting caveats or limits on the toplessness laws — specially SINCE folks never really got around to enjoying what the law provides.

Something about the Hampton event always seemed incongruous to me. It would have made huge sense if female toplessness was against the law. But an event like that when there is no law against it is asking for attention — and in this case potential trouble.

They could probably get some laws passed in Concord, in 2016, given the current makeup of the legislature. I would really like to know where Governor Maggie Hassan stands on this. I would have tried to get her support before the event.

To me, ‘we’ should have just pushed the envelope on the permitted toplessness all across the state every day. In Europe you go to a beach or a park and you are likely to see topless women — maybe even folks, of both genders, nude. No fuss. No big deal. That is what the good ladies should have done in New Hampshire. A gradual but concerted effort to introduce and integrate toplessness in the state.

Any backlash we get will be because of the SHOCK-VALUE of the event — which is what the organizers are hoping for. Ironic. C’est la vie. The die is cast.


This letter, protesting the Hampton event is interesting in that it says what I think.
We should have gone for a gradual integration.

When I saw the above article in the U.K. Daily Mail on Monday morning it got me thinking. Next Sunday, August 23rd, 2015, is the New Hampshire “Free the Female Nipple” movements emancipation day at Hampton Beach, N.H. As I have already told you they have received a huge amount of media coverage and that is on the ascend as Sunday looms closer.

On the Ferris Wheel at “Toys ‘R Us” Times Square.

But, the Topless Ladies in Times Square had piqued my interest for awhile — since Saturday, May 16, 2015 (i.e., 3 months ago), when ‘two’ quite literally walked into me and I nearly had a mouthful! Yes, I was in Times Square. The two kids were with me too, and I had Teischan by her hand, which might explain why there was this slight collision in the crush of Times Square — right outside of “Toys ‘R Us“. The three of us were in transit to Philadelphia, during the Amtrak crash, to pick up our Jaguar XJ8 from ‘Car Cheer‘. We had a few hours in New York before boarding the Greyhound to the ‘City of Brotherly Love’. Kids wanted to go to Times Square & “Toys ‘R Us” and I had to take Teischan to the “American Girl Doll” store. We had ‘done’ “Toys ‘R Us”, or more specifically ridden the Ferris Wheel inside, and were now trying to get to the “American Girl Doll” store which was about 10 blocks north. We come out of “Toys ‘R Us” — and then ‘SMACK‘. Wasn’t major. Just a glancing blow.

There were two of them. In body paint. I think they were supposed to be some female superheroes. Given that I used to be known as ‘eagle eyes’ I tend not to miss too much — especially topless breasts, painted blue, inches from my mouth. Took me a second to register that they were indeed topless — though I think they had painted decorations around the nipples to deemphasize their protuberance. Once the ladies left, after a giggle, I had to check with the kids that I hadn’t hallucinated. They were google eyed. They confirmed, breathlessly, that the women where nude and that I should have taken a picture to show Mom. Well I knew that taking the pictures would have involved a financial transaction and I wasn’t going to pay money, for the first time in my life, in my 60s, to be seen with a pair of uncovered breasts.

BUT ….

So it works in New York. NO LAW against topless women and women are exercising their right in Times Square.

So we do have a precedent. There is also no law against female toplessness in New Hampshire. Same as New York.

So …

Think about it.

Given the current interest in ‘topless in NH‘, stoked by the ‘Free the Nipple in New Hampshire‘ movement and their planned August 23, 2015 event in Hampton Beach, it occurred to me, as these things do, that I should also check to see what the nude beach situation is in neighbouring Maine — since New Hampshire, as I pointed out, has at least one. 

I kind of had a feeling that much larger and more ‘liberal’ Maine might outdo New Hampshire in the nude beach stakes.

I was, however, NOT expecting to find that our perennial favorite, Acadia National Park, is said to have at least 3 fairly well frequented nudist beaches, most of them within Parkland. So I created this map for you. Though we have visited the Park 4 times, so far, all in warm weather, we have not seen any nudity let alone any topless females. I can’t say I will try and go looking but at least now I know which lakes are which. Hope this helps. I will do more posts of Maine in the coming days. Promise.

P.S., In case you didn’t realize and it did NOT occur to you, these are NOT sanctioned (or even approved) nudist beaches. They are definitely not commercial (i.e., for a fee) nudist beaches. These are beaches where people exercise their free will. I guess Park Rangers either turn a blind eye, suggest they ‘cut it out’ or arrest them. So be WARNED. Just because it happens should not be taken that you might not get arrested. OK? Don’t want anyone getting into trouble.

nhcedersignGiven that I have ‘topless‘ posts and even ‘topless in NH‘ posts, not to mention the recent posts about ‘Free the Nipple in New Hampshire‘, I do get ‘hits’ here of people looking for nude or nudist beaches in New Hampshire.

Today I felt compelled to address this, once and for all.

Yes, New Hampshire does have a bona fide nudist beach– Cedar Waters Village, 24 Smoke Street, Nottingham, NH 03290. Tel: 603-679-2036.

I have never been but I have driven past the sign on many an occasion.

So that is at least ONE genuine nudist park, with a lake and beach, in New Hampshire.

OK?

As to Topless Beaches …

There is no female topless laws in New Hampshire per se, though there is a rather broad one covering lewdness (which could be used to cover ‘topless’) and then there is always the catch-all ‘disturbing the peace‘. Plus individual towns, Laconia for example, can have specific topless ordinances — and Laconia does have one having to do with Bike Week. Kind of sad. I have lived here long enough to remember when there was quite a bit of female toplessness at Weirs during Bike Week.

Having lived waterfront in New Hampshire for 17 years, 10 of it on Lake Winnipesaukee, I can assure you that there is more toplessness and nudity around the NH lakes than you realize — albeit some on private beaches and ‘when the sun goes down’.

That there are no State laws against female toplessness does not mean that you will not get arrested on a beach if you happen to be topless and somebody complains. And the complaining part is key. Shame. As I have said many a times I grew up in Europe where most beaches are topless. 

So now you have the full story. Enjoy.
