The Daily Newds 8/22/07

  • Erotic Art Show: St. Petersburg is host to its first annual Erotic Art Show.
    "Some of the pieces are pretty out there," said William Schramm, who will host the event at his antique store in the Grand Central District. "I told my clientele, 'If you are going to be offended, don't show up.' "
  • Bigger Than Christmas: The Boobs on Bikes parade in Auckland attracted 100,000 spectators, more than the Christmas parade. Not everyone was happy.
  • She Did if for Journalism: A writer strips down to do a story on a nudist resort.
    My experience at Oaklake Trails wasn’t awkward. No one stared and said "Look at Fatty Patty over there.”I was treated with respect and reminded of how free it feels to go natural.
  • Firecrotch: A woman set fire to her ex-husband's penis as he sat naked watching TV and drinking vodka.
    "It was monstrously painful," the wounded ex-husband told Tvoi Den newspaper. "I was burning like a torch. I don't know what I did to deserve this."
  • Naked Ambition: George Davis, who is running for mayor of San Francisco on a platform or making Golden Gate Park clothes-free, could receive public funding if he can raise another $100,000.
    Davis has said that if he gets public matching funds, he intends to promote his campaign with clothing-optional art performances and concerts. That may sound like a dubious use of public matching funds, but John St. Croix, the executive director of the city's Ethics Commission, says it would probably be a legitimate expense under the rules so long as the event promotes Davis' candidacy.
  • Flashdance: Beyonce Knowles had a wardrobe malfunction when her top flipped up revealing her bare breasts on stage.
  • Moon Over Miami: Spencer Tunick is seeking nude volunteers for an installation at Miami's Sagamore Hotel.
  • Nudist Town: UK naturist Richard Stofer is facing up to five years in prison because he likes to sunbathe in the nude.
    "I don't like wearing swimming costumes but it sometimes gets me in a bit of trouble.

    "We have got a fuddy attitude in this country about the human body.

    "There should be a UK nudist town where people can walk around naked or a UK nudist day once a year."
  • Cracking Down: Huntington Beach makes the nudity ban official.
    Allen Baylis, a director of the Naturist Action Committee, told the council during the public comment period that a vote to ban public nudity could mean that offenders would need to register as a sex-offender in states such as Colorado, Nevada and Utah.

    "You are condemning residents to sex offender registration," he said.
  • Like a Virgin: A nude sculpture of the Virgin Mary goes on display in the UK, but in Canada some nude photos and statues were removed from a festival display.
  • On the Rocks: A nude rock climber lost his footing and fell, and is listed in critical condition in a Pennsylvania hospital.
