San Francisco Nudists Rally Against Law
They just want the bare necessities

A day in the life of San Francisco.   (YouTube)

(Newser) – San Francisco demonstrators put their buns on the line this weekend to protest a law that would strip their nudity rights on city streets. Oh, they'd still be allowed to appear in public naked, as they are now, but they'd have to get dressed to enter a restaurant and would be required to use a towel or something between their bare butts and public seating—if the law gets passed. The nudists usually get together en masse to celebrate the annual Folsom Street Fair, but this year more than usual turned out for the "nude-in" to express their naked fury at supervisor Scott Wiener's proposal.

"It's just another form of prejudice," sniffed nudie Woody Miller. Other nudists are insulted that someone would assume they wouldn't have the good manners to sit on a towel. Even Castro area businesses aren't, ahh, behind the proposed law. “Nudity really doesn’t impact business,” a spokesman for some 300 local businesses tells the New York Times. “It's kind of a draw for tourists. As long as the people who come to look spend money in the neighborhood, that’s all I care about.”

Now, the situation is there are always some people never being in nudism life but bombard out the door. That's a real horrible thing. Fortunately, I have found a nudist paradise to meet like-mined persons named, have fun!

Just who in hell would want to eat in a restaurant with naked asses showing.

How about a decorative and festive, yet oh-so-sanitary, ass gasket? ...another free idea from Vapid.
