The controversial performer, Milo Moire, has reportedly been travelling all over Europe performing her called the 'Mirror Box' show, designed to promote women's rights to not be touched without permission.

Moire's show has taken her to Desseldorf and Amsterdam, before her show at Trafalger Square where she finally met her waterloo.

During the controversial show, Ms Moire allowed passers-by past the age of 18 to fondle her breasts or genitals for thirty seconds.

Opening her show, Moire said:

"I am standing here today for women’s rights and sexual self-determination. Women have a sexuality, just like men have one.

"However, women decide for themselves when and how they want to be touched and when they don’t.

"Today, you have the chance to touch the box for thirty seconds and feel free. It doesn't matter if you're a woman or a man."

Recounting her experience with the police to Mirror Online, Moire said:

"I was in Trafalgar Square and the police came and told me what I was doing was against the law and I had to come with them to the police station. I was there for 24 hours; first in one station then another with the court where I ended up having to pay a hefty fine.

"It was not nice to be in jail. I tried to explain to them the performance I was doing. The first detectives who interviewed me were women and they said they understood. But their chief constable did not."

Ms Moire went on to add that her treatment at the hands of the police highlights the different approaches in Europe.

"In Amsterdam it was very different - they are more free towards sexuality. But in London it was more strict - too strict I think. They don't understand this form of performance."

Moire claims that her performance at Trafalgar Square had been going well with a good turn before the police had crashed the show, arresting her.

"It was very interesting to see many women, who were there for a long time watching and seemed interested. I can't look around all the time - I have to concentrate because it could be dangerous for me.

"But I got the feeling people were interested. Then some mothers called the police I think because they felt offended.

"It won't stop me. It is a risk, but it is a risk I am willing to take."

A Scotland Yard spokesman said:

"Police were called to Trafalgar Square at 6:25pm on Sunday, June 5, after a member of the public complained about the behaviour of a woman in the area.

"Officers arrived and arrested a man and woman on suspicion of outraging public decency."
