San Francisco lawmakers are getting ready to unveil their decision on a proposed ban on public nakedness.

The 11-member Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote Tuesday on an ordinance that would prohibit exposed genitals in most public places, including streets, sidewalks and public transit.

A first offense would carry a maximum penalty of a $100 fine, but prosecutors would have authority to charge a third violation as a misdemeanor punishable by up to a $500 fine and a year in jail.

Supervisor Scott Wiener introduced the measure in response to escalating complaints about a group of men whose dishabille is an almost daily occurrence in the city's predominantly gay Castro District.

A federal lawsuit seeking to block the ban has already been filed in case it passes.
