Please see the attached written testimony.

The definition of "intimate parts" should clarify that it is not a chest of a child which is intimate, rather it is the breast area of a FEMALE child under the age of 15. The chest of a MALE child under the age of 15 is not an intimate. A female child wearing a bikini exposes most of her chest, yet the exposed chest area is not intimate.
