It sometimes comes as a shock to people that both men and women can go topless in public places in Oregon. Indecent exposure is limited to display of the genitals. It is also a crime to interfere with a breast feeding woman, so if that offends you, go elsewhere.

Skinny dipping totally nude is legal almost anywhere, with a few minor restrictions. Stay out of sight of paved highways and if others are there first you have to get their permission.

good, i'm glad that Oregon isn't a place where everyone loses their marbles over an exposed torso.

as far as those laws, well whatever. i have gone skinny dipping and didn't ask the permission of the other campers. i'm sure that's just one of those laws that are rarely followed or enforced.

following up on that, people always say 'yeah, in eugene you see tons of topless women and naked people all the time.' never seen that once in the many years i've been here, and i've been to all the hippie festivals and stuff. i do know people who've gotten arrested for being naked in eugene, however.

There are two traditional nude public beaches in the Portland area. Straying from those areas without clothing that covers the privates is frowned upon.

Were you aware that the state supreme court has ruled that live sex shows are constitutionally protected free speech? The Oregon State Constitution is an interesting document. Freedom of speech is absolute.

I like it Oregon. I have an old classmate who lives in Oregon, he has been telling me how much he loves it there. I wonder if this has anything to do with it...

Thumbs down Just another reason to leave Oregon

Oregon; least moral and most politically corrupt state in the west.

1. Live sex shows protected as free speech

2. Porn shops/strip clubs seemingly on every corner

3. 82nd Avenue, East Portland worst place in USA for teen prostitution

4. Portland mayor/most famous homosexual pedophile Sam Adams; made out with 17 year old boy in City Hall

5. Former Portland Mayor/Oregon Governor/USA Transportation Secretary/most famous heterosexual pedophile; sexually abused 13 year old girl at age 35 when mayor of Portland

6. Portland city government encouraging a 'naked bicycle ride' through downtown Portland. Event draws 5,000 'bicyclists'; any other time of the year these idiots would be arrested for indecent exposure to children

Add to this a culture that encourages intolerance for opposing viewpoints to the entrenched liberal, enviro-wacko, eco-terrorist, anti-business, homocentric, pro-marijuana, anti-Christian entrenched Democratic one-party state that is run today by the same Goldschmidt-era criminals who have broken Oregon.

My family is fifth-generation pioneer farm stock with roots here. We don't want to leave, but how are we to raise our babies in this upside down, un-palatable culture led by miscreants? It seemingly gets worse every day; that is why we are looking to move to Utah, Arizona or Jalisco.

I know, the liberals will say don't let the door hit us in the arse. However, you eventually will miss our outrageously high personal and business taxes.

More 'contributors' will eventually move from Oregon, leaving the 'entitlement' class to cannibalize itself once the sex shows are over.

No offense but shoving your private parts in front of my children (if I had any) or myself, I think violates my own freedom, as I don't want my children or myself to be exposed to your form of expression. In a way you are forcing me and my children to look at your private parts, which goes against my beliefs.

Liberals think forcing their ways of life equates to freedom, when in fact they will suppress and attack you for your own beliefs of freedom and expression. They all want to live as far from Christians as they can but hold no objections of living next to a strip bar that attracts all the perverts, pedophiles, adulterers and criminals from around the country.

I agree 100% with Suizo.. However, Suizo I encourage you not to leave.. Oregon is a beautiful state and more sober-minded individuals that leave will result in the deranged self-destructive ultra-leftist element to proliferate in this state.

We need to be more proactive ..
