SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – The issue of public nudity in San Francisco may garner plenty of chit-chat around the office watercooler, but it certainly isn’t a topic that translates into heavy turnout at a Board of Supervisors committee hearing.

Only two people turned out to testify Thursday before the supervisors, as they considered legislation to outline the guidelines for baring it all.

It had become the talk of the town – naked men parading around the Castro District, to the point where Supervisor Scott Wiener said he felt compelled to propose legislation to ban naked people from restaurants and force them to use a cover when sitting on public chairs and benches.

KCBS’ Barbara Taylor Reports:

“Healthwise, it’s terrible,” testified one of the two people who showed up for the hearing. “I don’t like it that the kids see this. And even people in general just don’t want to be exposed to this.”

The legislation was approved and sent to the full board for consideration.
