    STORY HIGHLIGHTS

    * Any traveler to Europe notices Europeans are more relaxed than Americans about nudity
    * It's quite a shock to Americans -- they're the ones riding their bikes into the river and trees
    * Steves: Human body is considered a divine work of art worth admiring openly

    Any traveler to Europe who's visited a bath, perused a newsstand, hung out at a beach or park on a sunny day, or channel-surfed broadcast TV late at night has noticed that Europeans are more relaxed than Americans about nudity.

    In the south of France, sunbathing grandmothers have no tan lines. In Norway, young children play naked in fountains. On summer days, accountants in Munich head to the park on their lunch break to grin and bare it, trading corporate suits for birthday suits.

    It's quite a shock to Americans (they're the ones riding their bikes into the river and trees).

    In Belgium, huge billboards advertise soap by showing a woman's lathered-up breasts. A Copenhagen student tourist center welcomes visitors with a bowl of free condoms at their info desk.
