Edita Deveroux in EuroTrip: Unrated EditionSt. Tropez Beachgoers Keeping Their Seashells Under Wraps

American beaches have a tradition of keeping their visitors' best parts covered in skimpy spandex. But are usually clothing-optional European sand-and-surf hot spots following suit by actually wearing swimsuits?

A Page Six correspondent noticed this disturbing trend:

REGULARS on the beaches in St. Tropez have noticed fewer naked breasts this summer than ever before. "It looks like going topless has gone out of fashion," our girl on the Cote d'Azur tells us. "Men are whining everywhere you turn that there are no more bare boobs on the beach." This is stunning news considering that topless sunbathing on public beaches got its start at La Voile Rouge beach club in St. Tropez some 40 years ago. "Is it because of threats of skin cancer?" mused our correspondent. "Or is Europe turning as conservative as the United States?" We hope its just a fashion trend, and a short one at that.

Mr. Skin is hip to today's trends, but this is one fad no lover of nudity can get behind. What Mr. Skin can get behind (and on top of) are two Continental cuties toplessly slathering each other up and contemplating a seaside snog, like in this free nude pic from the teen sex comedy EuroTrip. Isn't that what beaches are meant for?
