T his week you may have heard about the Utah lewdness law , which a judge refused to overturn in a judgment against a woman who removed her top in her own home while applying drywall, and was seen by her stepchildren doing it. What little research there is on the topic suggests fears around the harms of parental nudity are exaggerated. One UCLA study that followed families over a period of 18 years found no negative effects among adolescents who observed their parents naked regularly when they were between the ages three to six. One of the main benefits to seeing a parent naked is that a child gets to see what a normal, naked adult body looks like. By contrast, seeing women with stretch marks, pubic hair and lumpy parts gives children more realistic expectations.

The religious leaders were, the agency claims, completely at ease with the prospect of the posters appearing near religious sites such as synagogues and churches. Even after such precautions, religious Muslims and Jews united to deface the ads by tearing off the naked bottoms. The creator of the ads — outspoken Brummie Trevor Beattie — was, uncharacteristically, unavailable for comment. And the FCUK campaign has proven that advertising can reinvigorate a brand if it manages to create an interest. Without doubt, the ad has created a buzz in the industry and the market. The retail giant may be obliged to replace some of the posters after the complaints from religious groups, but it maintains that the campaign only aims to ditch its staid image and introduce a new sizing initiative. The Advertising Standards Authority has also received 54 complaints about the poster but has ruled that the ad can continue to run MW October 5.

Women and their allies are taking bold steps towards achieving gender equality in the workplace. In March , Victoria Bateman walked into the gala dinner at the annual conference of the Royal Economic Society in Brighton, the largest gathering of economists in the UK. Amid the formal business attire, Bateman stood out; she was completely naked, except for some jewelry fitting for a gala event. That day, the message to her peers was a demand for respect for women and their place in economics. This was not the beginning, nor would it be the end, of Bateman using her body to help deliver a message. There are vast consequences for this omission, she says. One of the most fundamental questions in economics is: Why are some countries rich and others poor?
But how far does the history of Western art, composed for the most part by and for men, really lend itself to subversive interpretations? As she points out, all we see is the sexual trunk: head, feet and hands, the thinking and doing parts, are missing. The practice of covering up the genitalia of nudes of both sexes became widespread in 16th-century Europe. She joins conservator Eoghan Daltun, who is prising the fig leaf off the genitals of a plaster cast of a Greek male nude. Unfortunately, as she discovers, the penis was destroyed in the process of attaching the fig leaf. All that remains is a chipped pair of testicles: a metaphor, perhaps, for the effects of Christianity upon eros. To make this point, she joins a hen party at a life drawing class, where the model is a naked man. There are a few excited murmurs when the model, Julian, steps onto the platform and exposes himself to the female participants — and on national television. So far, so decorous.
