    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...

    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...

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."

    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....

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.

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...

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...

Students have long enjoyed an informal policy allowing them to go naked on campus. Whether it was as a topless sunbather lounging on the lawn or students running naked at an annual bonfire party, college officials turned a blind eye....

"I'm probably affected in some ways by the fact that I'm a doctor, so it's not exactly an unusual phenomenon for me." During the break in the National Football League's championship...

    In his quest for a seat in the U.S. Senate, Rep. Mark Foley has rankled a group that is barely covered in most elections: nudists. Foley, of West Palm Beach, has hit the national TV and radio talk-show circuit in recent weeks to bash a Tampa-area summer camp not unlike most camps -- except that the boys and girls, ages 11-18, are naked. Foley, a Republican hoping to replace Sen. Bob Graham, says that letting naked teenagers play together is immoral and potentially dangerous. But ''naturists'' who say the camp exposes their children to a perfectly healthy and wholesome education...

    Nudity, Crassness, Perversion on Display as San Francisco Celebrates Legal Sodomy 7/2/2003 By Allyson Smith Anti-Catholic 'Sisters' group takes shot at Vice President Cheney SAN FRANCISCO—Homosexuals were jubilant—and some naked—Sunday, June 29, as they celebrated last week’s Supreme Court ruling overturning Texas’ sodomy law during this city’s 33rd annual “gay pride” parade. This writer witnessed no attempt by city police to arrest those who were publicly nude, and no attempts to urge revelers to cover their private parts. The San Francisco "gay" celebration occurred just two days after President George W. Bush visited the city on a campaign stop to...

    Wed Jun 25, 7:37 PM ET Susan Hallowell, the director of the Transportation Security Administration's security laboratory, allows her body to be X-rayed by the 'backscatter' machine at the Transportation Security Administration in Egg Harbor Township, N.J., Wednesday, June 25, 2003. The machine bounces X-rays off the skin, left, producing a black-and-white image. To the eye, she is dressed in a skirt and blazer in dark, businesslike colors. On the monitor she is naked, except for a gun and a bomb that she hid under her outfit. The government is considering using the technology at airport security checkpoints because...

    STRATHAM - Hardly predawn, but early for a Sunday morning, a group of approximately 50 people gather at the Stratham Hill Park parking lot. Within the hour most will take part in a unique international spelling bee, one that has gained its reputation for scripting out peace messages with naked bodies, rather than for any aptitude in orthography. There are a few dog walkers and a couple of park workers about. None appear to pay attention to the largely female group. Though many of these women will choose to remain anonymous, their hope is that people will soon pay them...

    Contestants go for the centerfold Playmate-in-Waiting By Jody Callahan May 16, 2003 Erica Moore drove hundreds of miles to Memphis, just for the slim chance to take her clothes off for hundreds of thousands of people. So did Kimberlee Adams. A Playboy photographer and a former centerfold are in Memphis this week, searching for the woman who will earn $50,000 as the magazine's 50th anniversary Playmate. The search continues from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at Jillian's in downtown's Peabody Place. Dozens of women from the Memphis area showed up, hoping to be the one chosen from thousands...

    IN Playboy next month, Lisa Marie Presley tells all. Elvis’s daughter will not be baring all, though. The men’s magazine is behaving with uncharacteristic modesty as it celebrates its 50th birthday. James Kaminsky, 42, the editor poached last year from the lads’ mag Maxim, is updating the middle-aged formula. There will be less full nudity and more semi-clad beauties with the approval of Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s roué founder and owner. “The reader would rather see a hot pictorial of Britney Spears that might not be completely nude, than a nude pictorial of somebody’s cousin,” Hefner said. Celebrities who are not...

    ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ A Byzantine Catholic priest accused of posting his nude photograph on sexually explicit InteznEp pages has been removed from duty by the New Jersey bishop who oversees his parish. The Rev. Francis Gera was ``relieved of his assignment'' at Holy Dormition Parish last week, a lawyer for Bishop Andrew Pataki wrote in a Tuesday letter to a Catholic Church watchdog group. Lawyer Thomas P. DeVita said in the three-sentence letter that Gera also has been ``forbidden from performing any priestly functions.'' Gera, 64, was removed from his position after leaders of Roman Catholic Faithful, an...

    "A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel." - Robert Frost Much to the dismay of many of my fellow SClarita members of the Grand Old Party, I am a conservative, card-carrying Republican. This surprises many. I get booed from time to time because I throw pies at my own. I point out that most of the Republicans I know are 19th hole posers, mountebanks and bag men and that our perfectly good political party hasn't had a decent candidate since Teddy Roosevelt. But a friend of mine sent me a fax the...

    John Peel failed to get a radio interview with a nude rights campaigner because the BBC ordered him to cover up. Bosses would not allow Steve Gough to walk naked through their offices in Southampton because it might have offended staff. Mr Gough, 43, believes being in his birthday suit is a human right. He was in reception at the BBC South studios, ready to record a piece for Peel's popular Radio 4 show Home Truths, when he was banned. The campaigner had cycled naked through Southampton city centre in the cold from his Eastleigh home five miles away to...

    GOD BLESS AMERICA As we all know, the Taliban considers it a sin for a man to see a naked woman who is not his wife. So, next Saturday at 2:00 PM Eastern time, all American women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists. Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort. All men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their house to prove they are not Taliban, demonstrate that they think it's okay to see nude women other than their wife...
