    WARSAW, Ohio – Strippers dressed in bikinis sunbathe in lawn chairs, their backs turned toward the gray clapboard church where men in ties and women in full-length skirts flock to Sunday morning services. The strippers, fueled by Cheetos and nicotine, are protesting a fundamentalist Christian church whose Bible-brandishing congregants have picketed the club where they work. The dancers roll up with signs carrying messages adapted from Scripture, such as "Do unto others as you would have done unto you," to counter church members who for four years have photographed license plates of patrons and asked them if their mothers and...

    It's the first time a woman naked from the waist up has ever initiated a conversation with me at a swimming pool — well, not counting my daughters when they were toddlers. "Hi," said this fantastically caramel-tanned person, leaning over to put what I'm going to guess were a couple of 38DDs about a foot from my face. "I'm Sara." We were sitting next to each other at the aptly named Bare, the adults-only pool at The Mirage Resort and Casino. Not only was Sara topless — oh, sorry, we're calling it "European style" now — but she was wearing...

    There are many that believe bikinis are the world's greatest scientific breakthroughs. Many believe that Quaaludes should be brought back. Then there is the world wide favorite, beer, wine, and thermoses. Whoopie cushions, helmets that hold two beer cans, soda cans, (strangely) flying squirrels, the Spork, and reclining chairs. Then there's toilet paper, sunglasses, the fork, air conditioner, paper, the refrigerator, the printing press, and electricity. All are lifestyle accoutrements that make living easier and more enjoyable. But in actuality, the truly brilliant discoveries transcend culture, lifestyle, and Preparation H (no matter how highly recommended). Below are listed and described...

    BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Area residents steamed about a new bikini espresso stand packed a Bellevue City Council meeting on Monday night. They put the heat on council members to do something, and quickly. "Bellevue has set the bar so high for being a great community for families. That's why we moved here. And it's plummeting with this," said resident Susie Goett. The complaints poured in after Knotty Bodies Espresso opened up right beside the popular Crossroads Park over the weekend. The company received similar complaints when it opened up a stand right next to a school and a church in...

    TRENTON, NJ - Things could get hairy in New Jersey this summer for women who sport revealing bikinis or a little bit less. The painful Brazilian wax and its intimate derivatives are in danger of being stripped from salon and spa menus if a recent proposal to ban genital waxing is passed by the state's Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling. Cherry Hill salon owner Linda Orsuto said that women would "go ballistic" if the proposal passed. She said that some women would resort to waxing themselves, visiting unlicensed salons or traveling to other states, including Pennsylvania, in a quest to...

    Spring break is coming up, which means it's time to invest in a sexy new swimsuit.If you’re Jessica Alba, you can get away with just about anything. But if you’re not, we’ve got some great advice to make this year the best spring break beach experience ever.Yes, going to the gym and toning up is important because swimsuits, by virtue of their form and function, tend to leave little to the imagination.More important, however, is learning which swimsuits work best for your body type. Cuts, shapes, fabrics, prints can have a major impact on how your beach-bod looks, so...

    A NEWLY appointed Australian Navy submarine commander is in hot water for suggesting that women sailors wearing bikinis might help to boost recruitment. Commander Tom Phillips, appointed to the helm of Collins class submarine HMAS Farncomb last year, also said the submarine equivalent of the "mile-high club" is the "going down club". In an interview with men's magazine Ralph he revealed the naval uniform works to "either pull a chick or get in a fight", The Daily Telegraph reports.Asked by the magazine "if female sailors all had to be hot and had to wear bikinis, would that help recruitment?", Commander...

    Bikinis and other sexy stimuli can make men more prone to seek immediate gratification — leading to blown diets, budgets and bank accounts, new research suggests.In the study, detailed in the Journal of Consumer Research, men alternately fondled t-shirts and bras (which were not being worn during the test).After touching the bras, men valued the future less and the present more, said lead researcher Bram Van Den Bergh of Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. Viewing ads with women in bikinis had the same effect.

    Israeli female legislators are baring their anger over what they call a "pornographic" tourism campaign - featuring a bikini-clad Israeli beauty queen. The racy photo of 2004 Miss Israel winner Gal Gadot appears on formal invitations to an event hosted in New York tonight by the Israeli Consulate in conjunction with Maxim magazine. The affair is to "celebrate" the magazine's "Women of the Israeli Defense Forces" article in the July issue. But prominent Israeli women say using sex to market the Land of Milk and Honey is "an outrage." Former Consul-General Colette Avital, a member of the Israeli parliament, yesterday...

    POLICE have been asked to protect Australia's largest mosque next weekend because of concerns that a bikini march staged to coincide with the anniversary of the Cronulla riots may get out of control. The caretaker of Lakemba Mosque, the Lebanese Muslim Association, says it is taking no risks, requesting at least 32 police officers to protect the place of worship on Saturday and Sunday. Association president Tom Zreik said he met police on several occasions to ensure there would be adequate numbers of officers present to defuse problems and arrest troublemakers.

    SEOUL (AFP) - A local government campaign to attract more bathers to a South Korean beach resort by offering incentives to swimmers wearing bikinis has upset women's rights activists.

The county put up wall posters with pictures of bikini-clad beauties and the inscription: "Show off your beauty and get a 10-percent discount." Women's groups denounced the campaign as exploitation.

Even if you didn't see a single down of regular season play all year long, you most likely found yourself planted in front of the TV for at least part of the game between the Bucs and the Raiders. A lot of people find themselves also checking it out for those million-dollar commercials. This year's batch was pretty good. The "Sierra Mist" ones were my favorite. Whether it...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Web site founded by a priest that featured images of young wrestlers in bikini briefs was voluntarily shut down after questions were raised about its content and purpose. The Junior Professional Wrestling Association site offered to sell photos and videos of the wrestlers, purportedly for charity. The site displayed teen-agers and young men with nicknames such as ``Johnny Heartbreaker'' and ``Bad Brad'' in wrestling poses. The Rev. Glenn Michael Davidowich, pastor of St. Michael the Archangel Byzantine Catholic Church in suburban Mont Clare, founded the wrestling association in 1999. Some matches were staged in the church...
