Xenu bless those Raelians…

Via the Riverfront Times: Free your breasts, and your mind will follow. Such is the mantra of GoTopless.org, an offshoot of a religious movement tied to UFOs that is bringing its fight for bare breasts to mid-Missouri later this month.

“When a woman takes her top off in public, there’s a chemical reaction in her brain that is very powerful,” explains Donna Newman, a Raelian priest and spokeswoman for GoTopless.org. “It’s something men will never understand. We want it written into the Constitution that women should be allowed to go shirt-free in public. We were human beings before we’re gendered.”

What’s saucier than regular crime? Bath salt-fueled nude crime. Some combination of carjacking, biting animals, and ice cream is often involved. PressTV writes:

After a series of recent crimes in Arizona, police began to see a pattern. Here are some shocking incidents involving naked people where “bath salts” are suspected to play a part:

Royal Navy Finds 61 Bombs On Nudist Beach

Isle of SheppeyVia the Telegraph:

Experts were called in after 26 bombs — including two submarine depth charges and at least six 10lb mortar bombs — were washed up on Leysdown Beach last month. And last week, during a two day search of the beach, on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent — the Navy found another 61 bombs, taking the total to 87.

The team found mortars, submarine depth charges, a string of 10lb bombs, bullets and a string of other ordnance, some dating back to the late 19th century, during the sweep. The east side of the beach — often called Shellness — is an official nudist beach.

It is listed on the UK’s Naturist Factfile, which states: “This official naturist beach is located near Leysdown-on-Sea at the eastern end of the Isle of Sheppey on the north Kent coast.

The Short-Lived Glory Days of Nude Psychotherapy

Another great find from Cyriaque Lamar over at io9.com. How times have changed:
Freedom

In 1967, psychologist Paul Bindrim introduced the world to the salubrious properties of naked psychotherapy. Despite the treatment’s somewhat lurid connotations and relative obscurity nowadays, nude psychotherapy did garner its share of press attention, professional consideration, and happy, naked adherents.

Bindrim’s theories were inspired by the famed psychologist Abraham Maslow (you know, the fellow with the hierarchy of needs) and focused on the acceptance of the naked body as a whole. This message wasn’t particularly unorthodox even if his methodology was. Historian Ian Nicholson describes Bindrim’s birthday suit treatments in his eminently readable paper “Baring the soul: Paul Bindrim, Abraham Maslow and ‘Nude psychotherapy”

So public nudity at the beach is OK for French traditionalists, but sex isn’t? John Lichfield reports for The Independent:

To make a French nudist blush might appear to be a mission impossible. Not at Cap d’Agde, on the Languedoc coast, home to “naked city”, Europe’s largest nudist holiday colony.

A long-simmering war between two tribes of the unclothed – “traditional” nudists and so-called “libertines” or exponents of free sex – exploded into a public protest at the town’s council meeting this week.

Old-fashioned naturists have been complaining for years that Cap d’Agde’s once-sedate nudist quarter has been disfigured by an influx of partner-swapping clubs and raunchy hotels. A flurry of arson attacks on sex clubs two years ago was blamed on low-level terrorism by nudist fundamentalists.

At this week’s Cap d’Agde council meeting, the protests took a more peaceful form.
