Erotic moments from the Bible

WARNING: This may be considered racy. Read no further if you are offended by nudity in the name of the Bible.

A Protestant youth group in Germany has published a 2006 calendar with 12 photos depicting erotic scenes from the Bible, including a bare-breasted Delilah cutting Samson's hair and a nude Eve offering an apple.

Do Samson and Adam also appear in the nude, or is it just the women?

"There's a whole range of biblical scriptures simply bursting with eroticism," said photographer Stefan Wiest.

Maybe so, but is it just eroticism for men?

Anne Rohmer, 21, poses on a doorstep in garters and stockings as the prostitute Rahab, who is mentioned in both the New and Old Testaments. "We wanted to represent the Bible in a different way and to interest young people," she told Reuters.

You mean you wanted to interest horny young men?

"Anyway, it doesn't say anywhere in the Bible that you are forbidden to show yourself nude."

Maybe not, but it also doesn't say that only women should show themselves nude.

Bernd Grasser, pastor of the church in Nuremberg where the calendar is being sold, was enthusiastic about the project. "It's just wonderful when teenagers commit themselves with their hair and their skin to the Bible," he said.

You mean when teenage boys persuade teenage girls to commit themselves, right?

You can find out more about the calendar at www.bibelkalender.de.
