BEIJING — A 20-year-old peasant of "normal intelligence" in China's Sichuan province has refused to wear clothes since birth, the newspaper Sichuan Daily reported.

Li Jinyu ignores strange looks from fellow villagers and goes naked even during icy winter weather but has never caught a cold, the newspaper said. Li has had no education because of his dislike of clothes, the paper said, adding that he enjoys playing with animals and never indulges in "bad behavior" though he knows the facts of life.
