Dare to Bare?

Who knew it was legal for a woman to walk around with her breasts exposed in New York?

Well, one woman did - and a cop didn't - and now she has forced the city to fork over a $29,000 legal set tlement for illegally busting her when she law fully bared her bosom and went for a stroll two years ago.

Jill Coccaro, a 27-year-old East Village artist who now goes by the name Phoenix Fee ley, went au na turel on Aug. 4, 2005, when she pulled down the front of her paint er's jumpsuit dur ing an art-show promotion to cool off.

In 1992 a state appeals court ruled that if men could expose their chests in public women could not be pun ished for doing the same.

Okay it's not illegal I guess that's good news for women who dare to bare. The question is... would you?

I wouldn't be able to bare my chest in public. Cleavage, yes. The whole package? Ah no. Even if I had a big package, I wouldn't be able to.

I did once on the cruise ship. The topless sunbathing deck. That was 15 years ago. Would I do it today?
Probably not, depends on the situation and who would be looking. LOL
