Meet the Guy Whose Naked Photos Are Impacting Nudity Laws Around the World

Foreign officials are so strict these days. 

There's nothing that goes together like nudity and ancient civilizations, right? Machu Picchu, the famed site of a 15th century Incan civilization, is Peru's most prominent historical monument, but the ancient ruins aren't just attracting tourists who want to get their history on. Peruvian authorities issued a statement saying they were tightening their surveillance on the cultural site after a number of visitors posed for nude photographs and videos that surfaced online this year. 

One of those photos circulating online is of Israeli blogger Amichay Rab. And while his photo on top of a mountain overlooking the preserved village of Machu Picchu caused a major legal stir, it's not the only fully nude portrait the afro-ed adventurist has posted. After being challenged by his cousin Sigalle, he began posting dozens of naked photos of himself while on an extensive backpacking trip through Central and South America. To keep track of his travels, Amichay started his blog, My Naked Trip, documenting each gorgeous view with a quick naked snapshot. The unashamed traveler is back home in Tel Aviv, but has plans for another naked road trip very soon. He's really hot in that "have sex in a tent with him after you join the Peace Corps" sort of way.

For now, here's a look at some of his most beautiful and controversial snap shots.
