Cock-Rings are “Engooorging” San Francisco Nudity Debate

Never wear a wiener-ring,
Or cops may get excited.
You may think it’s no big thing,
Until you get indicted.

Nudity’s not viewed as rude,
If your dong is fully noood,
But when you bring a wiener-ring,
you may be misconstrued…or screwed!

You’ve seen the Naked Guys at Castro & Market in recent months, right? There’s a link to an article about this at the bottom of this post. But this article isn’t just about nudity, it’s about cock-rings. We’ll get back to that in a second.

Certainly any member of the Boyz in the Woodz Club has got to LOVE that there is no law against nudity in SF, and that the SFPD and the SFDA and SF city residents are tolerant and don’t hassle a guy (or a gal) for walkin’ around in the buff. After all, it certainly eliminates the danger in changing from jeans to jockstrap in an alley, or parading around in buttless chaps, or protesting, demonstrating, or partying in SF in the nude, such as at our periodic SF LGBTIQ street fairs and festivals, and the straighter Bay to Breakers, Critical Mass, and war and Occupy protests.

1st VS 2nd Amendment

But I’ve always said that if you push an issue too far, you’re liable to lose a good thing. Just as it’s a bad thing having a select and irresponsible few of my fellow passionate Second Amendment advocates walking around in groups wearing their guns in public places for no other reason than just to PROVE that it IS legal, a select few of my fellow exhibitionists are hangin’ around in SF naked just to PROVE that it’s not ILlegal.

By the way, I should state for the record that while I have been naked on SF streets from time to time (as shown below), I have NOT chosen to “hang out” naked all afternoon in front of passing crowds just to make a point, nor am I a “flasher”, nor would I ever parade around with an erection. Of course, if I were younger… This may also be partially because the point of THAT display would be that nudity for men over 50 is not as much fun for all as for people who still look good naked, but I digress.

In both cases I think the activities of these idiots are gonna force the public and the politicians to try to ruin a good thing. Of course, it would be tough to amend the Second Amendment, but it would be a hell of a lot easier for the SF Supervisors to create an ordinance that makes simple nudity illegal in public.

After all, something that patently IS LEGAL and has been nation-wide for 200+ years is very different from something that has only been noticeably NOT ILLEGAL only in one city and for just a few years. Furthermore, gun ownership is demanded as a Constitutional Right by at least tens of millions of Americans who would die to protect it, while public nudity is only merely tolerated by a few hundred thousand people at best in San Francisco who may well be getting very tired of seeing it on street corners in view of children and tourists.

It’s a shame that literally a handful of NUTS (pun intended) are about to ruin a very unique freedom for us in The City By (and for) The Gays.

Anyway, I think the whole issue is pretty much a no-brainer, so I haven’t commented on it up til now, but there is an interesting take on the issue I saw in a recent article, and I felt that you Boyz (including those on our roster who are actually among the NUTS) would be interested in reading about the issue of COCK-RINGS.

As for me, I would have no problem arguing with a cop in the street, or with a lawyer in a courtroom, that a cock-ring is NOT just a stimulus device, but is actually, more frequently, and more importantly, a form of JEWELRY, self-adornment, and self-expression (such as tattoos and piercings), and should not, therefore, be legislated against in the absence of an erection. Of course, in the PRESENCE of an erection I would say it certainly SHOULD be considered an obvious stimulus tool, and, therefore, should make THAT specific display of nudity NOT tolerable under SF’s current lack of a law against “simple” nudity. It should also be clear to all in such a situation that the ERECTION, and NOT the cock-ring itself OR the nudity, should be considered illegal.

Here is the article, for your perusal:
