PARIS (Reuters) - Parisian sunbathers will no longer be allowed to go nude or wear g-strings on the capital's artificial beaches and risk a fine if they are caught baring their breasts or buttocks.
City hall has issued a decree banning indecent clothing to preserve the tranquillity of the sandy beaches created on the banks of the River Seine every summer since 2001.
"People must behave according to good standards to maintain tranquillity, security and public order," the decree said, according to Saturday's edition of Le Parisien. "Notably indecent attire (nude sunbathing, g-strings and toplessness etc) is forbidden."
The city police will be enforcing the rules, and anyone caught baring too much flesh risks a 38 euro (26 pounds) fine.
Defending the decree, city hall sports official Pascal Cherki told Le Parisien that indecent clothing "could have led to temptations and dangerous behaviour on the banks of the river."
Topless sunbathing and g-strings are common on real beaches around France in the summer.
Useless without pictures
So the Islamization of France continues
(Go Israel, Go! Slap 'Em Down Hezbullies.)
Give it a few minutes..... Saturday Morning.... You know how it goes with some of these posters..
Something else the French Muslims will have to burn cars over.
Hey, it works for them. Frankly, the American norm where two-year-old girls are forced to wear bras is silly and almost Islamic.
My thoughts exactly. I was just thinking that it was pressure from the muslimes, because the french didn't have any problem allowing it in the first place and people never seem to go back to being more conservative once they're crossed the line. I wonder how long it's going to be before they require all women to be covered and wear headscarves?
My daughter lifeguards at the local Y and said a muslime family came in. The men swam and the women sat there covered head to toe and talked on the side while the men enjoyed themselves. She couldn't believe it, especially considering how hot it is in those pool areas. God help us.
Nature abhors the vacuum. As decadent populations sink into the oblivion other peoples are replacing them.
Ewwww frech . . yuck . . I take it back
Where in the US is that? I've NEVER seen it.
Ya know, if our decadent lifestyle bothers them so much, WHY DO THEY GO THERE?
Oh, I don't know. I haven't been on a European beach in a number of years, but the last time I was there were a lot of very scantily clad eyesores...
What do they call it, Muzzyland? 'Ain al-Parisi?
No surfing, no skinny-dipping...last one out, please turn off the wind machine. :(
Oh yeah I agree with that Mew my point is that never stopped the French before so what has changed?
Well this statement seems to indicate what has changed.
"People must behave according to good standards to maintain tranquillity, security and public order"
