    competition

    Porn parades and discounts with the hookers. Hmmm, sounds like international competition for California and Nevada. Guess the down under countries have converted to the western way of thinking.

      Strippers Raise Money For Vegas Schools

      POSTED: 9:18 am EDT August 31, 2006
      UPDATED: 9:43 am EDT August 31, 2006

      LAS VEGAS -- Exotic dancers held a detention session with a difference at a Las Vegas strip club as part of a recent fundraiser.

      The dancers, who were dressed as teachers, schoolgirls and librarians, took off their clothes to raise money for the cash-strapped Clark County School District. Scores Las Vegas raised $2,500 during the event.

      District officials said they don't condone stripping for schools and noted that the money actually went to a nonprofit corporation that supports the school system.

      The foundation said the strip club donation will be used to buy supplies and computers for Las Vegas teachers.

        And in the age of "Loyalty Cards".

        Madam Floras (Aucklands oldest, most famous massage parlour) now has its own loyalty card for "members" (What member? )

        "Have 10 get one free" is the concept here.

        As my wife pointed out when we heard this on the radio advert, "Is that with the woman that should have retired 20 years ago."

          Town Opts To Leave Naked Teens Alone
          Board Decides To Take No Action On Anti-Nudity Ordinance

          POSTED: 10:08 am EDT September 6, 2006

          BRATTLEBORO, Vt. -- Mother Nature, not an ordinance, will draw the covers over public nudity in Brattleboro.

          The town's Select Board decided Tuesday to take no action on an anti-nudity ordinance that was introduced in response to a clothing-optional movement launched by local teenagers this summer.

          "Winter is coming. If spring comes and we still have a problem, we'll take another look at it," said Select Board Chairman Steve Steidle.

          Vermont has no state law against public nudity, though at least eight communities have banned it locally.

          Brattleboro, however, has long had a live-and-let-live culture. Its 12,000 residents have seen clothing-optional swimming holes, streakers, and even an event known as "Breast Fest," with women parading topless.

          But the public nature of the latest movement -- naked teens smack in the heart of downtown -- raised eyebrows.

          The stripping apparently started in early summer when a young woman sat naked on a park bench, said Police Chief John Martin. Then another woman took her shirt off downtown, a music festival inspired nude hula hoopers in a downtown parking lot, and in August a half dozen young people bared their bodies in a parking lot encircled by the backs of bookstores, coffee shops and restaurants.

          One of the nudists, 19-year-old Adhi Palar, told the town board the issue was freedom.

          "Our acting in nudity is an act of celebration of this history and traditional values as a place where you're allowed to be nude," he said. "I find that important, and I find that proud."

          Not everyone agreed.

          "I just think it's anarchy, because they won," said resident Theresa Toney, whose complaint about the public nudity prompted the debate. "It's inappropriate behavior for downtown. It has nothing to do with the weather. There's good behavior and there's bad behavior and that's bad behavior."

          Town Manager Jerry Remillard said the town's image was tarnished by the uproar.

          "We have been the brunt of phone calls from all over the world," Remillard said. "The media made this into nothing less than a circus.

          Teens Say They Get Naked Because They Can

          POSTED: 3:24 pm EDT September 5, 2006

          BRATTLEBORO, Vt. -- Public nudity isn't new to this bastion of bohemia, but it usually bares itself in more subtle places than the downtown parking lot.

          This summer, a group of teenagers has disrobed near restaurants, bookstores and the town's many galleries, igniting a debate about whether Brattleboro should ban a practice long tolerated until now.

          "Brattleboro tends to be a laid-back town and pretty accepting of the unusual, but this is really pushing limits," said Police Chief John Martin. "It's clearly to outrage people, it's clearly rebelliousness."

          By most accounts, the stripping started on a whim in early summer when a young woman sat naked on a park bench, Martin said. Then another woman started taking her shirt off downtown.

          A music festival promoting nudity and rebelliousness set up in May in a downtown parking lot attracted nude hula hoopers.

          Last month, a half dozen young people bared their bodies in a parking lot, encircled by the backs of bookstores, coffee shops and restaurants.

          "It's just an act of freedom," said 19-year-old Adhi Palar. "We're just doing so because we can."

          Palar said he and the others "do not consider nakedness to be innately sexual or rude and it shouldn't be confined to that."

          All the bare skin has raised eyebrows, even in this town of 12,000 residents that has seen clothing-optional swimming holes, streakers and an event known as "Breast Fest," which featured women parading topless.

          "To most people, it's not a big deal," said Catherine Kauffman, 57, who calls Brattleboro "a don't-take-away-too-many-of-my-rights kind of town."

          At Everyone's Books, co-owner Rich Geidel, 50, said the parking lot may not be the most appropriate place for nudity, but "as long as people are polite, don't block the entrance, we don't ask them to leave."

          To others, it's disturbing and something more than harmless rebellion.

          "It's a bad image for Brattleboro," said Ozzie Kocaoglu, 43, who owns the Sundried Tomato restaurant at the far end of the parking lot, which has long been a teen hangout.

          Vermont has no state laws against public nudity, but communities can write their own bans. At least eight cities and towns have anti-nudity ordinances, according to the Vermont League of Cities and Towns.

          So far, Brattleboro has chosen not to join them, but the teenagers' dress-down may change that. Officials in the southeast Vermont town, about 80 miles west of Boston, are researching how other communities have responded.

          Nudity has been used for social protest and rebelliousness for years. This summer, nude bicyclists rode through Burlington to protest the country's reliance on oil, part of an event known as the World Naked Bike Ride. PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has often used nudity as a shock tactic to draw attention to the treatment of animals in research and fashion.

          The 50,000-member American Association for Nude Recreation espouses nude recreation in appropriate places, but doesn't use nudity "for social commentary, or rebelliousness or an act of civil disobedience," said Mary Jane Kolassa.

          In Vermont, voters have shot down nudity bans before. Prompted by complaints about nudity and sexual activity at a swimming hole, the Wilmington select board passed an anti-nudity ordinance in 2002. But supporters of the freedom to skinny dip rejected the ban in a public vote.

          "There were some ugly moments in the debate with some name calling and lots of good healthy debate about reasonable rights and responsibility under those rights," said Wilmington Town Clerk Susie Haughwout. Officials weren't sure how they would have enforced a ban and to what extent, she said.

          For now Brattleboro is weighing its options, and waiting for summer to turn to fall.

          "As soon as winter comes, there won't be a story anymore," said Town Clerk Annette Cappy.

            Nude Dudes Popular With Some Seattle Commuters

            POSTED: 1:37 pm EDT September 6, 2006
            UPDATED: 1:50 pm EDT September 6, 2006

            WOODWAY, Wash. -- Some Seattle-area commuters are getting an eyeful of naked men on their way home from work.

            Trains heading north from the city to Everett, Wash., pass a beach popular with male nude sunbathers.

            Commuter Sarah Thompson said the brief glimpse of guys without their briefs is a plus for riding the train. Another commuter said the women line the windows to see the boys in the buff.

            The beach that the train passes has been popular with gay men for decades. Local authorities said they usually let the sunbathers off with a warning instead of making arrests.
