SF Supervisor Considering Ban On Public Nudity After Cock-Ring Overload

An openly gay district supervisor in San Francisco is considering a ban on public nudity due to the increase in men openly wearing cock rings in the Castro.

Public nudity has been a hallmark of the City by the Bay for decades—it’s legal as long as the person isn’t visibly aroused. (Even porn star Marc Dylan filmed himself in the altogether in the gayborhood earlier this year.)

But increasing gentrification has collided with the introduction of a public plaza on Castro Street that’s given naturalists a home base to congregate in.

Supervisor Wiener told the Bay Area Reporter he’s considering a ban after receiving numerous complaints about naked men sporting cock rings. “People can have whatever view they want to have on public nudity in general. But to be walking around with a cock ring on or something similar is just not acceptable [or] responsible behavior,”  said Weiner. “The whole purpose of a cock ring is to draw attention to that area.”

Naturalists, however, insist that the rings are jewelry, like bracelets or earrings. “Men have been told they will be arrested on the spot if they are wearing a cock ring,” said naturalist advocate Mitch Hightower. “Since Pride people have reported to me of being hassled for wearing cock rings. I don’t wear one but I have observed [it].”

We’re not sure if the right to be chubbed up is anywhere in the Constitution.

Police Sergeant Chuck Limbert, who is openly gay, insists the department has no particular policy regarding the adornments, and denies there are any “cock-ring patrols” in the Castro.

Oh, we imagine there are some—just not run by the SFPD.
