The Weekend Newds 8/10/07

  • Naked Games: 400-500 people are expected at a San Diego resort between Aug. 31 and Sept. 4 for the nude event, with activities for all ages.
  • Gymnophobia: An Associated Press writer laments about all the nudity found in locker rooms.
    And why the need to walk around naked? I can't speak for the women's locker room, but the men's is a nudist colony, guys of all shapes and sizes strolling, leaning against walls talking to each other without clothes. I don't want to see in-shape guys in the nude, much less some of the apple-shaped slobs that feel the need to jiggle across the room.
  • Not Funny: The Naked Comedy Showcase bombs in London.
  • Thou Shalt Not: The Archdiocese of Denver has suspended a priest who was arrested for jogging nude on a high school track.
  • Run Away: Ask Amy advises women married to men with naturist interests to run away - fully clothed, of course. Yet, in another column, Amy admits that while she is puritanical towards naturism, she can see how it could be pleasurable in "small doses".
  • Going Commando: Apparently ladies without underpants are everywhere.
  • PETA Approved: A group of New Zealand Veterinary students have posed for a calendar wearing only fur, but the fur is still on the living animals.
  • Lord Godiva: The UK's most prolific streaker is considering retirement at age 42 after claiming to have run naked in public 380 times.
  • The Peterborough Principle: Although perfectly within her legal rights, a woman sunbathing topfree in a UK public park was asked to cover up because somebody complained about her semi-nudity.
    Central Park ranger Mark Swift said: "I saw the police car arrive and two officers go over to the woman, but I couldn't see what trouble she was
    causing in the park.

    "I was gobsmacked that the police came over and told her to cover up. She didn't appear to be doing any harm.
  • Focus on Women: A gallery show in Australia celebrates women and the nude female form as icons of art.
  • Bare Breasted Ads: A New York store is featuring ads with topfree women in its display windows.
    "Provocative ads are a tried-and-true strategy for fashion companies," said Ron Berger, chairman of Advertising Week 2007.

    "I'm not saying showing nipple is mainstream, but you have to be blind not to see the Calvin Klein ads where the guy is wearing a pair of briefs and his penis looks like it is 14 inches long."
