A disgusted mother has spoken out against the requirement by her daughter's University professor , that final year students go naked in a candlelit classroom, in front of the whole class and professor..
At the University of California, San Diego, this naked final exam is in fact a course requirement for a class in the visual arts department.
They must also perform 'a gesture that traces, outlines or speaks about your 'erotic self(s)', according to the course syllabus.
The angry mother told KGTV, that the requirement is not made clear at the start of the course, and called it a 'perversion'.
She added that the exam - during which all the students and the male professor strip naked in a candlelit classroom - made her 'sick to her stomach'.
But professor Ricardo Dominguez insists that he has not had any complaints in the 11 years he has taught the course.
'It's the standard canvas for performance art and body art,'It is all very controlled... If they are uncomfortable with this gesture, they should not take the class.' Dominguez told KGTV.
