As one common story goes, Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, had no idea that there was any shame in their lack of clothes; they were perfectly confident in their birthday suits among the animals of the Garden of Eden. All was well until that day when they ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and went scrambling for fig leaves to cover their bodies. Since then, lucrative businesses have arisen to provide many stylish ways to cover our nakedness, for the naked human body now evokes powerful and often contradictory ideas—it thrills and revolts us, signifies innocence and sexual experience, and often marks the difference between nature and society. Rather than studying the history of the nude in art or detailing the ways in which the naked body has been denigrated in the media, A Brief History of Nakedness reveals the ways in which religious teachers, politicians, protesters, and cultural icons have used nudity to enlighten or empower themselves as well as entertain us. Carr-Gomm investigates how this use of something as natural as nakedness actually gets under our skin and evokes complicated and complex emotional responses. From the naked sages of India to modern-day witches and Christian nudists, from Lady Godiva to Lady Gaga, A Brief History of Nakedness surveys the touching, sometimes tragic and often bizarre story of our relationships with our naked bodies.

In at lollapalooza, Rage Against The Machine came out on stage completely naked with tape over their mouths, as a protest against censorship in the music industry. The crowd eventually turned when they realised the band had no intention of playing and the police hauled the 4 band members away. It stands for the group Tipper Gore founded that pressurised the music industry into censorship. They are responsible for the Parental Advisory stickers. One of my favorite Megadeth songs is about them.

Look guys, posting pics of male genitals on a website without a age-restriction filter is actually against teh law here in the USA. I know RATM was trying to make a point, and that this whole thing is about their political views, but Wikipedia doesn't need the whole frekaing family-values movement suing it in court for posting adult-material on a website without an effective child-restriction service! I'm taking it down. Every state in the US prevent persons under the age of 17 from viewing adult material, and websites have to have age-restriction software to prevent them from viewing it. Wikipedia has no such software, so the pic goes, or Wikipedia will someday.
But 25 years ago today Rage Against the Machine made a literally ballsy political protest at the third annual Lollapalooza alternative music festival in Philadelphia by standing completely nude and silent during their set , letters painted on their chests, their mouths covered in black duct tape. The band did so in protest of the U. But during that Lollapalooza gig the band also had another problem. Rage could either try to perform a wonky set with a last-minute guest singer, hand over their performance slot or just go onstage and not say a word.
