The bare truth of why we all like to look at naked women

Kevin Myers

'Irish Women and Public Nudity', not so long ago, would have ranked with 'Nuclear Fission; the Eskimo Contribution' as the title of the world shortest book.

Along with 'Zulus and Supersonic Flight'. Or 'Lesbian Camogie in Saudi Arabia'. Or '101 uses for Pigs' Foreskins', by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Simply, Irish women didn't do public nudity. To be sure, Irishmen weren't all that great at it, but Irish women were as likely to appear naked in front of strangers as Mother Teresa was to do a pole dance in front of the Pope.
