No more going downtown to the beach and getting sand in your shoes.

It's Barcelona.  That means drunken chavettes on holiday.

It's OK for women to bathe topless in Barcelona's city-run pools, authorities have confirmed, after complaints that some swimming spots were discriminating against those wanting to bare more.


They want to "bare more" than just going topless? You can't go fully nude, so why is it 'discrimination' when...

Oh wait that's just a bad lead sentence from a modern 'journalist' never mind.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

there is no written rule governing what people can wear at municipal pools, but discrimination based on gender is prohibited.


So the other story is: at some pools, maybe men can't go topless.

Or perhaps the kneecaps must be covered, for both genders.

Depends on the pool
/ and maybe Depends are required for all swimmers, not just little kids

Good.  Stop fetishizing tits as purely sexual body parts!

Won't be hard to stop sexualizing tits after a granny with golf-ball-in-a-sock tits shows up.

This has been legal in Ontario Canada for decades. Wake up prudes. They're just tits.

how about just mostly sexual?
 
2019-08-08 9:10:47 AM  
I'm surprised that this was not allowed.   In most of Europe, topless is not considered nude.   Go to a park in just about any European city on a warm day and it's common to see women sunbathing topless.   Now if a person, male or female, wants to go entirely nude, there are beaches reserved for nudists, that's not allowed elsewhere in public.    Oh, before you book your next trip to see the nudist beaches of Europe, be advised that it's mostly flabby, middle-aged, Germans and British.   It really is 'nope'.

They aren't purely sexual but the vast majority of their time for the vast majority of women, that's their only function.

Barcelona and tits! Good memories.

Once upon a time in BCN, me & MrsKuusi spotted a middle-aged couple going at it behind a dense hedge. Right beside a major road, maybe they thought that the hedge was good enough.

They just didn't account for double-decker open top tourist buses. Nice view for all of us on the top deck. Sadly, the bus did not happen to stop there, so we were quickly past the fun. But we all cheered and clapped.

/csb?

Middle-aged couple; not enough eye bleach to get that out of my head, you have not made my day.

I have been to Europe quite a few times and have never seen women sunbathing topless unless it was on a beach, and even then, it wasn't every beach and pretty rare.

I think its actually legal for women to go topless in public in all of Canada. There was a federal ruling about it I believe

But its a little too cold to swim then.

So here's what they wear when they want to go more than topless, but aren't going fully nude:

A spokeswoman for Barcelona council told CNN that there is no written rule governing what people can wear at municipal pools, but discrimination based on gender is prohibited.

Rare Concise Logic from a government official.

Depends on the country, Italy not so much, Spain and Greece...tits, tits everywhere. Well, on the beach anyway.

I was in Granada and took a day trip to Costa Del Sol just to say I put a toe in the Med. The only people on the beach were British families. The Mothers were topless but just not that interesting.

CSB: I moved to Geneva, Switzerland, in 1986 in high school. On my first trip to the beach that summer, my friend Rachel from New Zealand whipped off her top and began sunbathing. Having moved there from Iowa, I was a bit... taken aback. I got used to it pretty quickly though.

After you've seen a few pairs of boobs, you realize they aren't all that different. After a while it stops being novel and you pretty much don't notice anymore unless they're particularly odd/amazing or attached to a lady you find attractive.

Well they kind of are. One of the most frustrating things about breast feeding is that the boobs look magnificent, but try to touch them and you get your hand slapped.

Fixed this line in the article:
"The city is a hugely popular travel destination thanks to its groundbreaking food scene, unique architecture and legendary nightlife.
Plus there's a three-mile-long beach and pools with topless women."
