An indecent exposure arrest is hardly news these days, sad to say. Unless, of course, it features the son of a famed sex researcher. William H. Masters III was arrested Saturday while allegedly standing nude on the banks of the Pinnebog River in eastern Michigan and making obscene gestures at a pair of female kayakers who happened by, according to the Associated Press. His arrest was his second this year: The 60-year-old was caught masturbating May 9 in New York City's Center Park, CBS News reported.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office chose not to seek the extradition of a substitute teacher wanted for sex crimes, even after prosecutors learned of his whereabouts in Mexico, court records show. The records contradict statements made this week by a deputy district attorney, who said the teacher would be extradited as soon as authorities could locate him. The teacher, George Hernandez, was arrested by Huntington Park police in September 2010 for allegedly exposing himself to a girl outside a middle school.

A retired Huntington Park police chief charged with indecent exposure pleaded not guilty Monday in an Orange County courtroom. Anaheim police said Paul Lawrence Wadley, 56, had left sexually explicit photos in Anaheim parks and allegedly flashed a woman. He turned himself in Monday and was released on $15,000 bond in connection with the alleged misdemeanor. Detectives last week conducted a search of the former chief's home near Toyon Park, where many of the incidents occurred.

Jim Morrison, the legendary frontman of the iconic L.A. band The Doors, was guilty of a lot of things on the night of his most notorious concert on March 1, 1969: insulting his audience, performing while inebriated and, worst of all, letting drugs, alcohol, fame and his personal demons snuff out his remarkable artistic gifts. But whether he was guilty of the two misdemeanors for which he was later convicted by a Florida jury ? indecent exposure and public profanity ? is another question.

The idea of the modern-day swimsuit has been around for a while — just check out the 4th century bathing bellas in bikini-like bandeaus and bottoms frolicking along the mosaic tiles on the floor of Sicily's Villa Romana del Casale. But, like everything else in fashion, we had to wait for them to come back in style again, which they did less than 150 years ago after centuries during which people swam nude or in their underwear — if they swam at all. With the help of Kevin Jones, curator of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising's Museum Collection, and author Sarah Kennedy, ("Vintage Swimwear," Sterling Publishing, $34.95)

For a band whose short, meteoric career was ignited by the hit "Light My Fire," the first full-fledged documentary about the Doors, "When You're Strange," is distressingly short on creative spark or historical illumination. The calling card of "When You're Strange," directed by Tom DiCillo and narrated by Johnny Depp, is some previously unseen footage of the band and its magnetic lead singer, Jim Morrison. That includes dramatic live performances from "The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1967, a 1968 TV appearance in Copenhagen and shots from the anarchic Florida concert that led to Morrison's conviction of indecent exposure.
