Editorial Policy: Nudes in the News is for items published in mainstream, edited news media, about sane, law-abiding people who choose to go nude for their own reasons other than financial gain, sexual gratification, insanity, or as part of a crime other than mere nudity. Here, "mainstream news media" means major, edited newspapers, magazines, and radio and TV broadcast stations, and their associated web sites. It specifically excludes un-edited forums and web logs (blogs) written by individuals or special-interest groups with an agenda to promote a particular cause. It also excludes press releases posted on web sites dedicated to the purpose of distributing press releases, and sites with a paywall requiring monetary payment to read even one article.
