    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,...

    A month after passing a temporary ban on public nudity, the Brattleboro Selectboard voted 3 to 2 on Tuesday to reject a proposed ordinance that would have made the ban permanent. When the temporary ordinance expires next month, public nudity will no longer be illegal. It is all about tolerance, one board member said. "We in this country are going down a slippery slope these days," said Dora Bouboulis, nothing a national paper recently published an article about the ordinance under the headline "Tolerant town gets intolerant."

    uly 8 has been designated “Pride Night” at Petco Park, where San Diego “Gay Pride” supporters can attend the Padres’ baseball game at a discounted price, be given group recognition on the signboard, and hear the Gay Men's Chorus sing the National Anthem.

    Board Decides To Take No Action On Anti-Nudity OrdinanceBRATTLEBORO, Vt. -- Town officials in Brattleboro said the solution to what some see as the problem of people hanging around naked downtown may be just around the corner. It's called cold weather. But the Select Board has decided to take no action for now on a proposed anti-nudity ordinance. That means that until temperatures turn nippy, those who object to nakedness downtown may just have to grin and bare it. Select Board Chairman Steve Steidle said when things heat up again next spring, the town may take another look at the...

    BRATTLEBORO -- Here on the banks of the Connecticut River, in the busiest parking area of a downtown peppered with bookstores and coffee shops, more is meeting the eye than some people want. A politely rebellious collection of teenagers passing time in the Harmony Parking Lot this summer has taken to disrobing. Seemingly on a whim, they shed clothes and soak up the sun, nude. What began as a lark or an ode to youthful exuberance has now turned into a municipal quandary, because public nudity is permissible in Brattleboro. In the words of Town Manager Jerry Remillard, if you're...

    FARGO, N.D. - Police here arrested a 34-year-old man after he jumped into the Red River and later stood naked on a bridge.

    WASHINGTON - Acquitting a Germantown man who exposed his buttocks during an argument with a neighbor, a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge ruled yesterday that mooning, while distasteful, is not illegal in Maryland. "If exposure of half of the buttock constituted indecent exposure, any woman wearing a thong at the beach at Ocean City would be guilty," Judge John W. Debelius III said after the bench trial, reversing the ruling of a District Court judge. Debelius made clear his disdain for the defendant, calling the alleged act "disgusting" and "demeaning." The outcome could have been different, he suggested, if the...

    ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - It's considered disgusting in most quarters, but a Montgomery County (website - news) appellate judge has ruled that "mooning" someone isn't illegal. The defendant, 44-year-old Raymond McNealy of Germantown, was charged with indecent exposure after exposing part of his buttocks to his neighbor and her eight-year-old daughter following an argument. A lower court found McNealy guilty. He faced up to three years in prison and a $10,000 fine, but he appealed. Circuit Court judge John Debelius ruled Tuesday that McNealy didn't commit a crime. He said if what McNealy did was indecent exposure, then "any woman...

    Is it legal to be nude on a beach in Hawaii? A ruling by the Supreme Court of Hawaii suggest that indeed it just may be, or at the very least it is not, "indecent exposure" under the Hawaii Revised Statutes. On October 18, 1998, six men were arrested for being nude on Polo beach at Makaleha Beach Park. A beach popular on Oahu as a nude beach. All were charged and convicted of violating HRS 707-734 renamed Indecent exposure and redefined in 1993. HRS 707-734 Indecent exposure.

    Performance artist Marina Abramovic really wanted to present, during a week of appearing at the New York Guggenheim Museum, her most radical work, called “Rhythm 0.” Performed only once in Naples in 1974, its premise was terrifyingly simple: She agreed to stand in a gallery for six hours while anyone who came in could choose any of 72 objects around her - including knives, scissors, a needle, a loaded gun - and do anything they wanted to her with the objects. It was her only work in which she essentially ceded control over her body, and over the pain to...

    Oglers surround protesters Topless women on skates, bikes and foot drew a surging crowd of grateful gawkers in Columbus Circle yesterday when they doffed their shirts to affirm the right to bare a lot more than arms. The 10 or so women gathered and showed nearly all to protest the arrest of Jill (Phoenix) Feeley, who said she was taken into custody this month after going half naked on the lower East Side. But Feeley and friends soon found out that taking such a revealing stance in New York can be risky. "It got hot, then it got rainy," said...
