City Bans Clothed Public Erections

Like Tennessee and Mississippi before it, another nudity ordinance has banned clothed "visibly turgid" genitals in public, in essence banning manhood. The town officials say it won't apply to normal occurences, but it's up to them to decide what is or is not a normal erection. "This is not meant to be a tricky term, or give our police officers difficulty in enforcing the law," said Kerstetter. Before the vote, Supervisor Dennis Sharrow suggested removing the word "covered" from the ordinance. Kerstetter said the inclusion of covered male genitals in legal definitions of nudity has been upheld by the Supreme Court.
