Italy's topless sunbathers are under attack

Sex and nudity are under attack in Italy and the latest victim is a woman who was doing nothing illegal, it seems.

In the beach town of Anzio, south of Rome, a 26-year-old woman — identified as Luisa under Italian shield laws — was sunbathing topless, which is completely acceptable in public spaces. But one woman complained that Luisa was rubbing herself "too sensuously" as she applied the cream in front of a pair of boys, aged 12 and 14. (I'm just going to add "Pretty sure they weren't complaining" and move along.)

Mom told Luisa to put her top back on or something equally ridiculous and an argument broke out, broken up only by the police who, instead of telling Mom the law, decided to investigate Luisa for committing an obscene act.

Here's the part that will really infuriate you:

A police spokemsan said: "We have opened a file on committing an obscene act as we are committed to following the complaint. From what I heard she was very attractive."

Her lawyer helpfully explains what happened:  

"Let's be clear: my client is tall, brunette and has an ample breast and is therefore going to naturally be sensuous when she applies cream to her chest." [News.com.au] 

Europe — it grows more Puritanical by the day. 

Via.
