Just trim a little around the ears, Delilah

Hey, just what we want, a naturist barber, right?

Um, maybe not…

German calendar depicts erotic moments from Bible

BERLIN (Reuters) – A German Protestant youth group has put together a 2006 calendar with 12 staged photos depicting erotic scenes from the Bible, including a bare-breasted Delilah cutting Samson’s hair and a nude Eve offering an apple.

You know, after all this time, maybe these folks are headed in the right direction:

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

“Anyway, it doesn’t say anywhere in the Bible that you are forbidden to show yourself nude.”

You can read more about the calendar here… and how to purchase a copy… if you read German.
