    Porn parade Down Under outdraws Santa Claus
    Auckland officials fail to stop publicity stunt

    Wednesday, August 23, 2006; Posted: 10:29 a.m. EDT (14:29 GMT)

    A porn star blows a kiss as she rides on the back of a motorcycle in Auckland, New Zealand, Wednesday. AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) -- Two dozen bare-breasted porn stars paraded on motorcycles and military vehicles down the main street of New Zealand's biggest city on Wednesday after beating efforts by Auckland officials to prevent the promotional stunt.

    Thousands of people, many of them clicking away with cell phone cameras, lined the street for the parade by male and female porn actors, most semi-clad in black leather, to publicize an erotica show which opens in Auckland later this week.

    The crowd -- four deep in some places -- was reportedly bigger than that for the city's annual Santa Parade at Christmas time.

    Organizer Steve Crow, a local multimillionaire porn movie distributor and producer, earlier had won approval for the parade from the city council, infuriating the conservative mayor and several councilors.

    Mayor Dick Hubbard said he would review local bylaws in a bid to prevent any more topless parades in Auckland.

    "We do want a vibrant city (but) I think the parade does our image harm rather than good," Hubbard said.

              Yes, but you go looking for it. That is the troubling part.

                  Ya.. I was kinda expecting something from down there too.... Or maybe they were trying to keep it secret.

                  And Cheffie, I actually found this one while searching for the plant explosion incident from Doyline, LA. I saw a bit of the news on TV about it.

                        WELLINGTON, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Thousands of people --
                        almost all of them men -- lined the main street of New
                        Zealand's biggest city on Wednesday as 25 topless porn stars
                        paraded on motor bikes and two old army tanks.
                        Businessmen, schoolboys and Japanese tourists lined
                        Auckland's Queen St to watch the "Boobs on Bikes" parade, which
                        went ahead despite the winter chill, a nippy wind and
                        objections by some city officials.
                        "It does nothing for our image, it does nothing for our
                        city and I just think it gives us indecent exposure around the
                        country and around the world," Auckland city councillor Scott
                        Milne told TV New Zealand.
                        "It's shabby and it's sleazy and we just don't need it."
                        The parade of leather-clad porn stars is part of an
                        "Erotica Expo" organised by self-styled "porn king" Steve Crow.
                        "You'll always have a vocal minority, you're always going
                        to have people who object to everything, be it religion or be
                        it adult entertainment," Crow said.
                        "If you don't like it don't come," he said.
                        Many of the curious onlookers came with cameras and mobile
                        telephones to take pictures of the parade. Others held aloft
                        banners which read "Sleaze Brings Disease in Body & Mind".
                        Most of the local and international porn stars rode pillion
                        on motor bikes during the 30-minute parade. One man clad only
                        in leather pants rode astride a decommissioned army tank.
                        "I don't know what all the fuss was about, to be honest,"
                        an unidentified male onlooker said.
                        Others debated whether the centrepieces of the parade were
                        real or surgically enhanced.
                        Police allowed the parade to go ahead because New Zealand
                        law does not regard the public baring of breasts as indecent.
                        There were no reports of arrests during the parade, which
                        briefly distracted about 4,000 local workers at a nearby trade
                        union protest.

                          We were all kept abreast of developments leading up to this titilating event.

                          Never in the history of fair Auckland has so much silicon wobbled together.

                          Dow Corning should be proud of their invention.

                          Mind you with the cold snap that came through that day, there were concerns about them freezing and snapping off.

                          (sorry for being slow, heaps of work at the mo).

                          And you know the really screwed up part. They go topless down the main street, and a few months back there was heated debate about women breast feeding in cafes restaurants etc.

                          Don't beam me up Scotty, theres still idiots to save here.
                          Psychiatrists state 1 in 4 people has a mental illness.

Australia is equally beautiful for its many contrasts from outback to rainforests. And of course we have the wonderful Kiwis and Aussies........

                              Sigh........ I need another vacation but I won't be able to afford to go back till 2008.
