City supervisor wants to crackdown on nudity

SAN FRANCISCO -- A San Francisco supervisor is fed up with the almost-daily displays of nudity in one city neighborhood.

Supervisor Scott Wiener plans to introduce legislation on Tuesday that would make it illegal to walk around nude on San Francisco streets. The city allows nudity except in parks, on port property and in restaurants.

Wiener's legislation would add city plazas, parklets, sidewalks, streets and public transit to the ban. It would, however, allow nudity at parades and street festivals.

Wiener says the legislation was spurred by an increase in nudity in the Castro neighborhood, where nudists gather almost every day at a plaza.

Wiener previously proposed that nudists put a cloth under their bottoms if they take a seat in public. But he says the nudity situation has gotten "more extreme" and many residents are tired of it.
