To assess students' behaviour outside of school, the MaltaMon Academy for Boys in Pennsylvania will test boys on Monday to find out if they have indulged in nude swimming off campus. Chemical tests will evaluate chlorine residue on their skin, both above and below the panty-waist line, to indicate if they have been nude swimming in a pool. In season, biochemical tests of the skin will determine if they have skinny-dipped in any of Easton's numrous swimming holes. A variety of tests, including ultraviolet and infrared light scans, ultrasound scans, as well as combined visual and tactile examination of the boy's buttocks, will determine if he has been spanked recently.
The tests, which were developed at the Tennessee Mountain Department of Underwear Down Education (tnmtndude), are so precise, they can tell if a boy was given a bare bottom spanking at school on Friday, or on Sunday after choir.

Anti-doping officials have defended drug testing schoolboy rowers in the nude, saying it is a common procedure and the regatta was raided after a tip-off from an insider.

The private schoolboys, from Newington College and Sydney Church of England Grammar School (Shore), gave samples to Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority officials at an inter-school regatta on March 17.

Under the international drug-testing standard, the boys had to pull their shirts up to their chests and drop their pants in the presence of a chaperone from the authority.

The incident reportedly angered some GPS principals, who refused to provide ASADA testers access to their pupils at the annual Head of the River Regatta last Saturday.

Shore's headmaster, Tim Wright, had expressed concern about children being forced to undress for drug officials without the consent of parents.

The parents of the Newington boys were present at the March 17 tests, the school's headmaster says.

However, the testing was sanctioned under the competition's anti-doping policy and should be expected at the national level, ASADA chairman Richard Ings said this morning.

He said the rowers should have been aware they might be tested, and the procedures followed were the same for minors, such as Olympic divers and swimmers, all over the world.

"The testing of athletes under the age of 18 is common - think of 15-year-old swimmers and gymnasts - and as a result we've got strong procedures in place for testing minors," he said.

"This includes the notification of the athletes, and strongly encouraging them to have a responsible adult, such as a parent or coach, present, but the passing of the sample must be observed by the anti-doping control officer."

Newington headmaster David Scott confirmed the parents of his students were present during the testing, adding the boys were "fine and understood that part of the process".

"However, I'm still concerned that the drug-testing rules say the chaperone must directly witness the provision of the sample from the athlete's body into the beaker," he said.

"We don't know whether the chaperone is child-protection cleared - that would be an issue for me."

The ASADA officials swooped on the inter-school regatta after a "clear and credible" tip-off to its Stamp Out Doping Hotline from a competition insider, Mr Ings said.

"We took a call from a very concerned person associated with this competition," he said.

"He provided us with clear and credible information on the use of [performance-enhancing drugs] by competitors.

"However, we're really delighted to report the samples taken did come back clear."
