  • The Martin Schreiber nude photographs of Madonna are taking England by storm.
  • Once again, a nude calendar has raised thousands of dollars for charity.
  • Here's more on British Naturism's Nudefest event.
    Dr Elletson, a direct descendant of Geoffrey the Crossbowman – the original Lord of the Manor of Preesall-with-Hackensall – is said to be very enthusiastic about the area's first naturist weekend and is keen to include the local community in the provision of services and entertainment.
  • A couple of Congressional Democrats have jumped on the prude bandwagon and are sponsoring a bill to ban "indecent" advertising on television during prime time viewing hours. Erectile dysfunction ads are specifically targeted. It's somewhat ironic that one of the chief spokespersons for ED drugs was former Senator Bob Dole.
  • The "Models as Muse" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art celebrates beautiful women and how ideals have evolved. The topless bathing suit is included.
  • Here's a more detailed local story on the grandmother busted for taking a nude photo of her granddaughter.
  • Outside Magazine explores places to get naked in the great outdoors.
  • A columnist declares that sexting is this generation's streaking or skinny-dipping. I don't think that's quite accurate because streaking and skinny-dipping are still happening, and sexting is not quite as innocent. As I've stated before, sexting is an electronic extension of teen sexuality. Kids are out there having real physical sex - oral, anal, and vaginal - and sexting is merely evidence that this activity is occurring. The issue is whether or not teens trading nude photos of themselves constitutes child pornography. My stand is that is is not child pornography, that it is freedom of expression, and adults need to come to terms with the fact that criminalizing the sexuality of children is an abomination.
  • A city councilman attempted to pass an ordinance prohibiting nudity in the Lake Edun Foundation's four nights of one-act plays.
    While there is a city ordinance and state law prohibiting publicly exposing a sex organ with “intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of the offender or another,” local prosecutors said the plays didn’t violate those laws.
