Yes. Public exposure is defined by the CO Statutes as the following - which in essence means if you are standing in your own home by the windows or front doors with your genitals exposed you could be charged, too.
(1) A person commits indecent exposure if he knowingly exposes his genitals to the view of any person under circumstances in which such conduct is likely to cause affront or alarm to the other person.
(b) Indecent exposure is a class 1 misdemeanor.
(2) (Deleted by amendment, L. 2002, p. 1587, § 21, effective July 1, 2002.)
(4) Indecent exposure is a class 6 felony if the violation is committed subsequent to two prior convictions of a violation of this section or of a violation of a comparable offense in any other state or in the United States, or of a violation of a comparable municipal ordinance.
