Nudists complain that ‘perverts in the bushes’ are ruining their favourite Paris park
Every summer, Bois de Vincennes park in Paris is handed over to nudists but female naturists say ‘perverts in the bushes’ are spoiling their relaxation.
Police have been asked to increase patrols to deter Peeping Toms from the park
French nudists have complained that a Paris park where they are allowed to be naked is being spoiled by ‘perverts in the bushes’.
Women at Bois de Vincennes park, in the city’s east, say they are too afraid to use the space because of voyeurs pestering them.
Police have been asked to increase their patrols but complainants say that unless they catch someone red-handed, there is little they can do to stop the behaviour.
Every year between April and October, a section of Bois de Vincennes park is handed over to French naturists to enjoy in the nude.
While the scheme has largely been hailed as a success, others say it is not being policed properly.
One complainant, who gave his name only as Bernard, told Le Monde: ‘Voyeurs and exhibitionists come to annoy women.
‘Some masturbate in front of them – of course they are afraid.’
‘Sometimes, there is a police brigade that passes, but, unless they are caught red-handed, they cannot be punished.’
