Streaking is outlawed some parts of Australia, so here are 6 of the best
Yahoo News - 5 months
It's fair to say that the "nudie run," or just simply mooning (showing one's bottom), is an under-appreciated facet of Australian culture. Unfortunately for aficionados of this fine art form, the letter of the law in the state of Victoria is now making it crystal clear that it's illegal.  SEE ALSO: Chris Hemsworth is pumped for his Aussie football team, the Western Bulldogs The state has issued an amendment to its sexual offence laws, where any behaviour that "involves a person exposing (to any extent) the person's anal or genital region" is an offence, specifically citing "mooning and streaking" as official examples. While mooning and streaking has always been illegal, the amendment means that these activities are classed as the lesser crime of "indecent exposure," not "sexual exposure" as it one would have been — which is much more serious crime. "We don't want a situation where someone who might streak at the cricket is funnelled into the same category as an offender who might jump ...
