Two nude models, one male, one female, were the undisputed focus of about 100 pairs of eyes in an exhibition room at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre yesterday.

Shock of the nude

THIS MONTH'S cover of women's magazine Trends Health, showing three naked women, is an attention-grabber. That's more due to the identity of the models - actresses Li Bingbing, Wu Jianmei and Christy Chung - than their state of undress.

Should a nudist camp be set up on Lantau Island?

Pulcheria Chung, 18 St Mary's Canossian College

There's nothing wrong about being nude and it's not illegal. But that doesn't justify having a nudist camp.

Being nude isn't wrong, but why should nudists get exclusive rights? Our islands and remote areas are something we're trying to preserve.

Q What do you think about the plan for a nudist camp in Sai Kung?

A plan for a nudist camp in Sai Kung is a great idea. Nudism is body art; there is nothing immoral to be ashamed of. It is something beautiful. Nowadays, the world has become so frigid, there is not enough love between people as we are all so busy with our own lives in an exciting city like Hong Kong.

Q What do you think about plans for a nudist camp in Sai Kung?

The proposal claims that one of the benefits of the nudist camp is that it will stimulate local economies and tourism. It will also stimulate and promote interest in nudism. Though nudism is permissible under the law, it is not beneficial to the public. There are better projects on which to spend money.

Like, groovy baby

This time last year, everyone was whispering about the unbelievable Christmas pool party at the Island Shangri-La, at which two girls proceeded to get wasted and dived into the pool with precious little to preserve their modesty.

Topless sunbathers' offensive behaviour

On Easter Monday, as it was a school holiday, I went to Repulse Bay beach with my children.

I saw two Caucasian women sunbathing topless. That didn't bother me much. I was, however, very offended when the two women started walking around the beach with their tops still off. They were standing near many children on what is a public beach.
