While her former classmates at Lincoln, Neb., Catholic high school Pius X contemplated going off to college, Valerie Dodds decided to stay local and start her own business: a personal adult website under her modeling name, Val Midwest.
As news of her venture spread, drama followed.
“All of the Pius kids were saying mean things and that’s when I decided to go there and show them that I’m here to stay,” Dodds told ABC affiliate KETV.
The 19-year-old took a series of nude photos on the campus of her former high school over Mother’s Day weekend, and recently received a ticket for trespassing and public nudity, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.
In response, Dodds visited the campus with a camera again. This time, she had her picture taken by daylight, with pasties and panties on. A police spokesman told the Journal Star that unlike her clandestine Mother’s Day shoot, Dodd’s recent stunt didn’t break the law. However, Dodds said she won’t stop there.
“I kind of want to go down to the courthouse and do a set right up front in pasties and panties. That sounds fun to me,” Dodds told KETV.
According to a City of Lincoln government website outlining offenses against public decency, “It is the intent of the City to prohibit the exploitation of human nudity for the purpose of advertising, selling, or otherwise promoting the economic interests of any type of business enterprise.”
Should Dodds tire of trying Lincoln’s patience, it is perfectly legal for all people to gotopless in New York City, as numerous advocates have pointed out.
