MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A record 18,000 people took off their clothes to pose for U.S. photographic artist Spencer Tunick on Sunday in Mexico City’s Zocalo square, the heart of the ancient Aztec empire.

Tunick, who has raised eyebrows by staging mass nude photo shoots in cities from Dusseldorf, Germany, to Caracas, smashed his previous record of 7,000 volunteers set in 2003 in Barcelona, Spain.

Directing with a megaphone, Tunick shot a series of pictures with his Mexican models simultaneously raising their arms, then lying on their backs in the square as well as another scene on a side street with volunteers arranged in the shape of an arrow.

Some participants said the massive turnout showed that Mexicans, at least in the capital, were becoming less prudish.

Let’s see if I get this right.  Is non-prudery going to make the world better?  I wonder what Al Gore and the global warming crowd think of this?  I’ll bet they’d have a ‘moral’ dilemma of head ache proportions.

Myung Moon – Activities – True Love King


Then you have the mass weddings of Rev. Moon urging international, inter cultural, interracial, inter-religious mass marriages and advising sexual abstinence before marriage to achieve world peace through families living for others.   Who has a better plan?  Tunick or Moon.  Why?
