It is an offence under the Miscellaneous Offences Act to walk naked in the privacy of your own home. You can be fined up to SGD 2,000 and be jailed up to three months if you are convicted of appearing nude and exposing yourself to public view in a private place.

miscellaneous offences act singapore:
http://statutes.agc.gov.sg/non_vers...ate=latest&method=part&segid=888373438-000468

20. Any person who is found guilty of any riotous, disorderly or indecent behaviour in any public road or in any public place or place of public amusement or resort, or in the immediate vicinity of, or in, any court, public office, police station or place of worship, shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $1,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding one month and, in the case of a second or subsequent conviction, to a fine not exceeding $2,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months.
i think this is the line that also encompasses nudity at home, this is especially so in singapore, because:
Public place is any place where the conduct may reasonably be expected to be viewed by others.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indecent_exposure

same rule applies in 50 states of usa.

so usually people find this private home thing a bit ridiculous, but singapore is not the only place doing it:

http://www.srislawyer.com/attorneys...orney-massachusetts-fairfax-rockville-boston/

Generally, to be charged with indecent exposure, the law requires the indecent exposure to happen in a public place. However, a person can be on private property such as their deck or porch and if they expose a portion or portions of their body that is considered indecent, they may still be charged with indecent exposure. Some of the different types of acts that can result in indecent exposure charges are masturbation, sexual intercourse or exhibitionism in a public place.
i guess this is to prevent exploitation of loopholes, such as say, i'm mr horny... and i know opposite me lives a girl that i fancy. so i just parade around in the privacy of my home and thrust my privates in her direction whenever she looks out of the window. without the "expect to be viewed by others" definition, this will not be illegal, since i am in my own private space.

新加坡袒胸美女洗車
05/10/09

作者/来源:星洲日報 http://www.sinchew.com.my

(新加坡)4名半裸美女,無上裝為20人洗車!

新加坡一個汽車網站為宣傳造勢搞噱頭,20名會員受邀出席另類的洗車活動,在貨倉內由4名性感半裸美女,為他們洗車。

身穿三點式的美女們個個身材嬌好,一邊洗車一邊脫下上裝,袒胸露背,受邀者在大飽眼福之余,則眼看手勿動。

這項香艷四射的洗車活動,分別在上週日和週一兩天下午,在東部的一個廢棄貨倉內進行。

20會員被抽中

剛在週六(10月3日)啟用,名為Motoring Exchange的汽車網站,為吸引駕車人士成為網站會員,讓20名幸運被抽中的會員目睹美女為他們半裸洗車。

被抽中的幸運兒,都可攜帶一名朋友前往,但都必須遵循活動的規矩,不準觸踫模特兒也不準攝影。

一旁喝茶一邊觀賞

每一輛車在駛進貨艙後,手持水管、大刷子和海綿的美女們便開始洗車,整個過程大約20分鐘至半小時。幸運兒在一旁享用茶點飲料,一邊看著半裸美女為他們服務。

其中一名受邀的車主鐘小姐(24歲,廣告行政人員)與交往3年的男友一起出席這個活動。

她說,“我起初以為美女會穿上三點式洗車,後來她們將上裝脫掉,只有小小的一片乳貼,沒想到最後她們連乳貼都拿掉,真空上陣。”

鐘小姐表示,美女們的身材都很好,整個活動非常富有娛樂性,雖然美女們裸露上身,但是觀眾只能看不能動,應該沒甚麼問題。

另一名受邀的28歲銀行家林先生,形容這項活動新穎和刺激,具有格調。

半裸美女:把觀眾當透明 起初尷尬後來習慣了

其中一名半裸美女珍妮(21歲,行政助理)說,她穿著三點式高跟鞋洗車,剛開始時感覺相當尷尬,但後來漸漸就習慣了。

珍妮充當業餘模特兒大約半年,她是通過友人的口中獲知這項活動的消息。她說,她被錄取後,有專人指導她如何一邊洗車,一邊擺出性感姿勢。

“把觀眾當透明的,想象自己和其他女生一同嬉戲洗車就行了,我相當滿意照片出來的效果,覺得很有藝術感。”

2天活動花費逾2萬

主辦商砸上萬元,策劃2天的洗車活動!

洗車活動策劃人陳先生(洋名Gerald,29歲)說,2天的洗車活動共花費了1萬1800元(2萬8320令吉)來打造,其中5600元(1萬3440令吉)是4名半裸美女的酬勞。

他說,公司之前也花了大約2萬5000元(6萬令吉)來拍攝及製作活動的預告短片,另外則花費4萬5000元(10萬8000令吉)用來設立網站。

他是在征詢一名退休警官的朋友的意見後,決定將活動搞成純粹是個私人的活動。

另一方面,受訪律師也表示,活動涉及灰色地帶,若遭投訴,當局可介入調查。

在新加坡,任何人在公共場合或能讓別人看到的私人地方裸露都是犯法的。在雜項(公共秩序和騷擾)法令下,罪成者可判罰款高達2000元(4800令吉),坐牢長達3個月,或兩者兼施。

.
to answer this line, you will need a fully enclosed place, in a private property, where you will not be expected to seen by anyone else.

to be honest, my heartfelt advice to you is to take down your thread in P&P. despite the fact that you meant no harm, it is highly possible that it could be highlighted as a case of public indecency. as to the outcome of that nobody knows - i sure don't, but for me, i would rather avoid trouble. it's your choice, though.

highlighting relevant parts for you.. must see all, not just the parts you want to see. :thumbsup:

that case is probably a grey area - the owners could argue that firstly, the car wash happend on:

1) private property
2) only invited participants who were fully expecting something to that tune got to see what was going on

for your case, 1 is already out, 2 is also not present. it is not a grey area case, it is clearcut infringement of the law.

Japan photographer charged over nude photos
By MARI YAMAGUCHI (AP) – 11 hours ago


TOKYO — A renowned Japanese photographer was indicted Thursday after he allegedly shot photos of a naked woman posing on a tombstone at a public cemetery.


Kishin Shinoyama, 69, was charged with public indecency and disrespect for a religious site for allegedly snapping the nude photographs in October 2008 at Tokyo's Aoyama cemetery, the Tokyo District Prosecutors Office said in a statement.


If convicted, Shinoyama faces up to six months in prison or a fine of up to 300,000 yen ($3,300).
The cemetery was one of a dozen public locations in Tokyo where two models posed nude for a photo collection titled, "No Nude by Kishin 20XX," which was released in January 2009.

Not necessarily.. But possession of pornographic material maybe an offence thou..

What is the difference between art and porn.. that would be difficult to define....
