Nudists have taken this whole being-naked-at-all-times thing to a new and musical level; now the naturists want police to come after them with cuffs any time they drop trou in public.

So on Wednesday, notorious nudists Gypsy Taub and George Davis are going to try again to lure the cops by staging a "body freedom dance performance" accompanied by violinist Erik Hoffman. This lewd performance will begin at noon -- admission is free.

The goal is to get the cops to come out and cite them -- or better yet haul them off in handcuffs in a totally non-kinky way -- so that they can bolster their latest claim against the city, saying police are discriminating against them for practicing their First Amendment right to free "speech."

Public nudity has been illegal since Feb. 1 despite the nudists' efforts to reverse this new city law. A federal judge recently ruled that San Francisco has every right to ban public nudity, but has given the naked folks till mid-March to come up with new evidence that this ban is unconstitutional. Once they build a new case, they can resubmit their complaint against the City of San Francisco to the Federal Court.
