The Daily Newds

  • A 22 year-old art student who was arrested for painting images of nude Hindu gods has become a national cause célèbre for the Indian artistic community.
  • Librarians in suburban Chicago are staging mock funerals for their computers because of a proposed law requiring Internet filters blocking material that is "harmful to minors" further defined as anything that "appeals to a prurient interest in nudity, sex, or excretion".
  • The Ohio House Judiciary Committee has approved a "compromise" in the strip club bill that would require dancers to wear "some clothes" after midnight.
  • Singer Kelly Clarkson reveals that she was a nudist as a child.
  • A Canadian nudist group has lost the contract to a pool they have been using since 2002. The city cited "security" as the reason after an article about the Skinnydippers appeared in a local paper.
  • Organizers of a UK youth naturist rally are coming under attack from a family group.
    Dr Adrian Rogers, of Family Focus, said: “Young girls and boys should not be running around without clothes on in front of strangers. Anyone could be snooping around for the wrong reasons - either from the camp or from outside.“This event would appear to be a paradise for paedophiles.”
    The naturists are fighting back.
    However, Ivan Page, treasurer at the camp, in Stoke Holy Cross dismissed the claims, saying it was used to having children at the site, as it was family-friendly. They also reiterated the fact no one is forced to take their clothes off at the event and it is open to British Naturism members only.

    He said: “No child is allowed at this event without their parents' consent and to suggest that children could strip naked without their parents' knowledge is a complete and utter misrepresentation.

    Broadland and all the other camps in the East pride ourselves on being family clubs. Not once has any child been told they have to strip off and it does not happen.

    “Whoever said that just does not appreciate the atmosphere at a family friendly naturist club. The only place where clothes are not allowed is the swimming pool.

    “We have also got a secure site and it's complete and utter rubbish to say it could be a paedophiles' paradise. We have got nothing to be ashamed of and it's quite annoying to think that people would say that.”
