Fantasy Fest 2000 Pictures
Again this year Key West officials mounted a campaign warning against public nudity. While this has been the case for the last five years, this year the warnings were more vigorous and dire. And again, they failed. In fact, the attempt worstens what a typical person will see on the street. While previously the emphasis at Fantasy Fest was on the artistic side with body painting, the more the government postures against body painting, the more flashing occurs. I wish they would figure this out, and declare that body painting is clothing, since it is much less revealing than the flashing or thin clothing that otherwise predominates. In order to avoid problems, I noticed a lot more artists taping the nipples prior to painting. Still, I never saw the police bothering anyone.
