KEY WEST, Florida (AP) - Key West city officials say they're going to take another look at nudity laws crafted for the annual Fantasy Fest.

Some residents say revelers at the weeklong party have exposed a little too much in restaurants and supermarkets. According to one complaint, a man clad only in body paint took a seat at the counter in a Denny's, angering some diners.

City Commissioner Tony Yaniz tells The Key West Citizen that he's no prude, but he does think "some of the fantasy has gone out of Fantasy Fest."

According to city laws dating back to 1986, nudity is defined as exposure of male or female genitals and women's nipples, which must be covered by "fully opaque" material. Some exceptions have been made for body paint and Fantasy Fest.
