The following terms have the definition and meaning as set forth hereafter:
- License issued by any governing authority including, but not limited to, the United States Government, State of Wisconsin, Vilas County, and the Town of Arbor Vitae.
- The showing or exposing of the human male or female genitals, pubic area or buttocks with less than a full opaque covering, or of the female breast with less than a fully opaque covering of any portion thereof below the top of the nipple.

This chapter shall not be interpreted as restricting the proper use of a bathroom facility by a person in an enclosed area where the person is of the same sex designated for such room, and is not engaged in any sexual or exhibitionist purpose to, in front of, or adjacent to other persons.
This chapter shall not be interpreted to prevent activities in rooms privately rented in a hotel, motel, resort, or camper if at a campground, if the person(s) involved rented such facility or owns it and has not invited or allowed members of the public, who are not immediate family members, to be at such location.
If any portion of this chapter, whether an entire section, a word, or a group of words, or otherwise, is held to be invalid, unenforceable, or unconstitutional, by any court of competent jurisdiction, those portions so affected shall be deemed stricken from this chapter and the remaining portions of the chapter shall continue to be of full force and effect the same as if the offensive portions had not been contained therein.
Each violation of this chapter shall result in a forfeiture of not less than $50, not more than $100. When using a citation form of enforcement, the deposit allowed shall be $50 for a first offense, or $100 for a second or greater offense within five years.
As set forth in § 125.12, Wis.

This chapter shall take effect upon passage and publication as provided for by law.
