Man Rides Around Taiwan Naked to Promote Legalization of Nudity

Naked except for a codpiece that barely covers his penis and scrotum, Jiang Yi-shao has been riding around Taiwan on a scooter to promote nudity as a basic human right.

The 24 year-old departed Hualian September 5 and has made the news after being spotted in Taitung and on the Hengchun Peninsular. Today he appeared in Kaohsiung. Mr Jiang hopes supporters will join him in an island-wide nude carnival and march to demand the legalization of nudity in Taiwan.

In the course of his journey people have called the police to report a naked man riding a motorcycle. Police in Taitung County pulled him up, but as his penis was covered by the codpiece, they could not charge him with public indecency.

Jiang says that he has received a lot of support from people. Some people have given him bottles of water and even ice-cream. However, others have called him shameless, ill-bred, or told him to put his pants on.
