If there's one thing that first-timers tend to get the most confused about, it's what comes off and what stays on. In general, women can flash or strip down entirely if the occasion calls for it, although you may be surprised at how little of that you see outside of Bourbon Street, where the boobs usually belong to drunk tourists. However, the same cannot be said of guys. Things are certainly a little more lax in gay-friendly lower Bourbon, but if a cop actually catches a dude whipping it out, he can expect anything from a very stern warning to being taken to the station. So guys, if you feel the need to get in on the nudity, put on a pair of fake plastic boobs and you just might leave with more beads than your girlfriend.
