Jan Philip, 21, an exchange student with a local university, and Eng Kai Er, a 24-year-old Singaporean studying in Sweden, were each fined 2,000 Singapore dollars ($1,300 US) for committing an obscene act, the Straits Times said.
In January, the two attracted much attention when they strolled naked through Holland Village, a place popular among expats for its bars and al fresco restaurants, apparently after drinking beer.
Singapore has strict laws on nudity and even magazines such as Playboy are banned in the city-state.
The two were fully clothed and wore sunglasses when they appeared in court on Thursday.
