    Cool I get flashed quite often.

    Hello!
    I'm trying to translate the article Blaine set for Batman hanging stunt.
    The illusionist will get a rush of blood to the head as he plans to hang upside down like a bat...
    ...
    The 35-year-old says he expects all kinds of fans to come out the wood work and support him with gifts, telling: 'There are always some crazy things. I get flashed quite often. Luckily, mostly from girls.'
    Does it mean that girls exposed their naked parts of the body to a fan?

    Yes, that's what it means.

    "Flashing" means a person runs through a setting without any clothes on. Every once in a while someone does it at a major football game. It is meant for no one in particular. Someone even flashed the entire viewing audience at an Academy Award Show by running through the stage bare naked.

    "Exposing" oneself is a whole other action.

    Here too.
    When you flash someone, you keep your raincoat on, and you flash a particular person or people (as above).

    Well, people also "moon" and do "breasters" here, streak and flash and expose!

    Any others we have missed?
