Jenna and Ethan strip naked for PETA.
The other Survivor All-Stars couple, Jenna Morasca and Ethan Zohn, posed naked for an anti-fur PETA ad. They’re dressed as Adam and Eve, with leaves just barely covering their kibbles and bits; and Jenna has scary big hair that drapes down over her chest. The ad is part of PETA’s anti-fur campaign; Jenna says, “I wouldn’t wear real fur–not even for a million dollars. Fur-wearers look just plain silly, walking around in coats that belong in a natural-history museum.” The photo was unveiled “at New York City’s Museum of Sex on September 22, where the first-ever retrospective of PETA’s raciest ads was on display”; a printable pin-up PDF is available to hang up in your bedroom or bathroom. Or wherever.
