SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has approved public nudity restrictions including putting covers on public seats before planting naked bottoms.

The ordinance, which was introduced by Supervisor Scott Wiener and unanimously approved by all 11 supervisors Tuesday, bans public nudity in restaurants and requires those with nude buttocks to cover benches or other public seats before parking their rears, CBS San Francisco reported Wednesday.

Wiener said the public sanitation concerns were a "tangible issue," particularly in his district's Castro neighborhood, where nudists often gather.

The ordinance will go before the board for final approval next week, officials said.
