Wisconsin DNR Struggling to Curb Sex at Nude Beach

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin authorities are still struggling to curb sex at one of the nation's most popular nude beaches.

The Department of Natural Resources this spring closed the beach near Mazomanie on weekdays, hoping larger weekend crowds would police themselves.

But the policy didn't make much of a dent. According to the DNR, wardens issued 22 citations for sex or drugs at the beach in 2012, including 16 on weekdays and six on the weekend. This year, wardens issued 13 citations, including 11 on weekends and two on weekdays. All the tickets were for sex.

The DNR noted all 13 citations issued this year were during seven days of surveillance, which means more bad behavior might have gone undetected.
