Boobs On Bikes Promotional Parade Stirs Controversy in Auckland
Adrants reader Amy is surprised we didn't cover the news regarding last week's apparently controversial Boobs on Bikes Parade which promoted the weekend's Erotica expo in Auckland, New Zealand. Avid Adrants readers know we never stoop to the depths of racy fair such is this simply to garner increased readership but when a reader wonders why we haven't covered the news, a little bell goes off in our head helping us to realize we really do need to serve our reader's need.
That said, we are duty bound to comply so we'll inform you 20 porn stars rode topless down Queens Street on motorbikes to the glee and shock on onlookers which ranged from pre-pubescent small boys to the elderly on the verge of a coronary. Calling the event "morally repugnant," Auckland City Councilors tried to get the event canceled but could not succeed. Event organizer Steve Crow, taking the don't like don't look stance, said, "If it was a religious parade I'm not religious and I would choose to stay out of Queen Street for the day. They've got the choice." Crow also said the City Councilors' efforts are pointless adding, "The only way they could legally stop it would be to change the constitution of New Zealand and remove women's rights to bare their breasts in public." Hmm. Do we have that right here in the States?
