    I was walking through Wal-Mart this evening with my 9-year old son picking up some groceries. When we were all done, we went to the magazine section just prior to checking out. While I was standing there, I saw a young man of about 25-30 years old walking toward the register next to the magazines. Something struck me as odd, and I finally realized that it was his pants - they were down around his mid-thigh, so that his boxer shorts were fully exposed. The next thing I noticed, and I will forever rue the day that I saw this,...

    Years ago, Woody Allen used to joke that he'd been thrown out of college as a freshman for cheating on his metaphysics final. "I looked within the soul of the boy sitting next to me," he confessed. Today, the joke is on us. Cameras follow your car, GPS tracks your cell phone, software monitors your Web surfing, X-rays explore your purse, and airport scanners see through your clothes. Now comes the final indignity: machines that look into your soul. With the aid of functional magnetic resonance imaging, neuroscientists have been hard at work on Allen's fantasy. Under controlled conditions, they...
  • Bill aims to crack down on nudity

    SALEM, Ore. - Supporters of a bill being considered by state lawmakers say it would close a loophole in the state's private indecency law. House Bill 3317 would amend the law by making exposure illegal when it is in view of a place where another person has an expectation of privacy. For instance, it would make it illegal to run around your yard naked in view of others. That is what Rainier's so-called "naked neighbor" Jimmy "Mack" McKenzie has been doing for years. A Team 2 investigation on McKenzie's nude - and some would say lewd - behavior outside his...

    A Lemon Bay High School music teacher would rather give up his day job than stop stripping at night in the musical "The Full Monty" at the Venice Little Theatre. Jason Brenner, who is in his third year as a part-time music teacher at the Englewood high school, said Lemon Bay administrators gave him a letter Thursday that offered him three options: "stop doing the show; continue the show but take yourself out of the last scene so that you're not naked on stage, or continue doing the show at full capacity but hand in a letter of resignation." Brenner...

  • THE VERDICT: Filming your neighbour having sex is legal (at least in lutheran Sweden)

    Filming your neighbour having sex is legal As long as you are not caught in the act it is legal to film your neighbours naked, or even having sex. That is the conclusion reached by prosecutor Bo Birgersson, who has just dropped the charges against a 20 year old man accused of filming 20 of his neighbours in various states of undress. "It is not possible to be molested without one's knowledge. And even if you find out after the act that somebody has been peeping at you it is not enough to bring about a conviction," Birgersson told Sydsvenskan....

    Bogotá, Nov. 03, 2006 (CNA) - Bishop Ramon Dario Molina of Neiva expressed disgust this week over a photographer who managed to sneak past security to shoot photos of a nude model at the local Cathedral. Bishop Molina said the photographer deserves to spend “a few hours in jail” for the stunt, which has caused outrage among the residents of Neiva in southern Colombia. “It’s disrespectful.  It merits at least a few hours in jail so they will learn their lesson,” he told reporters. The photographer, identified as Reynel Llanos, chose the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Neiva to...

    "Naked and hungover in the US embassy bushes He won't be the first 18 year old Stockholmer to wake up wondering where he is after a night of hard partying. But he is the first - and probably the last - to discover that he has come round in the grounds of the American embassy. Naked and confused, the young man tried to hide himself in the embassy bushes on Sunday morning. But after a while he was caught and questioned by police. "He thought he was taking part in some sort of game and had been given the task...

    PARISIAN sunbathers will no longer be allowed to go nude or wear g-strings on the capital's artificial beaches and risk a fine if they are caught baring their breasts or buttocks. City hall has issued a decree banning indecent clothing to preserve the tranquillity of the sandy beaches created on the banks of the River Seine every summer since 2001. "People must behave according to good standards to maintain tranquillity, security and public order," the decree said, according to Saturday's edition of Le Parisien. "Notably indecent attire (nude sunbathing, g-strings and toplessness etc) is forbidden." The city police will be...

    Sex in public not unusual June 27, 2006 NUDITY, streaking and sex in public were "not unusual" aboard the cruise ship on which mother of three Dianne Brimble died, the Pacific Sky's former night manager said yesterday. Ann Taylor said examples of such behaviour were so frequent that it would take up all their time to record the incidents. "If you were to write up every person that was running around naked there would be 15 to 20 security log books," Ms Taylor told the inquest, referring to both men and women. "Sometimes there was 15 to 20 a night."...

    NUDITY, streaking and sex in public were common practice on the cruise ship on which Brisbane woman Dianne Brimble died, the ship's former night manager has told an inquest.

    When hundreds of protesters take off most of their clothes, coat themselves in body paint and hop on bicycles, they are likely to draw a fair amount of attention. That's the point. The World Naked Bike Ride plans to hit Chicago and at least 25 other cities around the world Saturday as a peaceful protest against international oil consumption, according Chicago ride organizer Aurora Danai. "We don't expect everyone to be OK with this," said Danai, a 26-year-old Bucktown resident. "We're just trying to have a good time and raise awareness." Now in its third year, World Naked Bike Ride...

    Parents of children who attend a Missouri middle school are outraged after hearing that a teacher showed videotapes to seventh-graders that included images of male genitals. According to a report by KTVI-TV in St. Louis, students at Crestview Middle School in Ellisville, Mo., said teacher Bob Shea showed them German videos containing the images and profane language. Though Shea, who teaches German, claims the showing was an accident, students say the films were shown on more than one occasion. The teacher reportedly showed the videos as a way to prove that Germans have a sense of humor. "I haven't intentionally...

    Too bad Ginger White, a Bradenton figure artist and director of the Anna Maria Island Art League, found it necessary to go to Sarasota to exhibit her work. White experienced censorship at the Manatee County Public Library in Holmes Beach last year and had to relocate her work to the Digital 3 Gallery in Sarasota. Chalk drawings, which included bared breasts, were taken from view at the library because they were said to be too near the children's section. As if children haven't seen breasts since birth. As if children think of nudity in the same way adults do. Not...

    JAKARTA – Indonesian Muslims have reacted in fury over the planned debut of a local edition of raunchy magazine Playboy, fueling growing debate on pornography in the world's most populous Muslim nation. "Playboy simply has no place in our social norms and culture," Hasyim Muzadi, the chairman of Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), Indonesia's largest Muslim organization, told Agence France Presse (AFP) on Sunday, January 22. "Indonesia is not Europe or America, whose culture and reaction towards nudity are totally different than ours," he maintained.

    DAYTONA BEACH -- Adult dancers may be clear to take it all off after a federal judge Friday struck down the city's anti-nudity laws. City ordinances prohibiting public nudity and nudity in places that sell alcohol violate the First and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution, U.S. District Judge John Antoon concluded in his ruling. "We won on every single issue," said Daniel Aaronson, a Fort Lauderdale attorney representing Lollipops Gentleman's Club on Grandview Avenue. The victory entitles Aaronson to press for the city to pay attorney fees for Lollipops, which he said exceed $100,000. Daytona Beach failed to prove...

    JACKSONVILLE BEACH -- A police officer has been reprimanded for forcing a handcuffed woman to walk from a patrol car to a holding cell with her breast exposed. Investigators said Officer Anthony Dziedzicki violated the 26-year-old woman's privacy and used poor judgment in not taking prompt action to help Crystal Lee Bange fix her dress, which fell down at the arrest scene of her drunken driving arrest as she sat in the patrol car.
