    A "slippery" slope? A "hairy" situation?

    Not a good chance, no. Taking a picture underneath a person's skirt specifically has about the same chance of getting a naked picture as taking pictures inside a public restroom, whereas the chances are really small when just taking random pictures in public of getting that lucky of a shot that you get a picture of something naked.

    The ruling was based on the statutory text, and the girl was not in a state of nudity;

    I don't agree.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    If someone comes up behind a bunch of guys at a group of urinals and snaps a picture, they are not likely 9 times out of 10 to get a picture of any private parts of those men. They may get underwear or a pee stream, but the bodies of those guys would be covering the actual parts (most guys don't take down their pants to pee at a urinal, from what I've seen) (and that does not get into what the guys actually peeing might do to them, only what kind of pic they are likely to get before that). And even someone placing a camera under a stall and snapping a blind photo isn't likely to get a picture of any nakedness from that angle. It is likely going to be obstructed by the legs, clothes, and even the toilet itself (they may even just get the ceiling). Yet anyone doing that would be charged with the crime this guy was because they could still get it and the attempt, no matter how stupid in its execution, is still being made. It is the same with an upskirt shot. 9 times out of 10 (maybe less though), the guy is likely to get nothing but a shot of some girls panties, but there is still a good 10% chance of getting a naked shot due to either the woman going commando or simply having underwear that shows enough to be considered naked.

    63 Fun Facts about Underwear

    "Ten percent of American women have confessed to occasionally having gone “commando” to avoid visible panty lines.k"

    "A majority of American women prefer to wear bikini underwear (37%). Briefs come in second (23%), followed by thongs (19%), boy shorts (17%), and other (4%).k"

    I'd say that would easily account for a 10% chance.
