Spanish resort issues stag and hen do 'ban' and 'outlaws' being shirtless

A Spanish resort is threatening UK tourists £1,200 fines if they're on stag dos and hen parties. A Costa Brava town has introduced curbs on British tourists who are in bridal and groom parties ahead of weddings on a tough crackdown.

Drunken stag and hen do parties carrying inflatable penises and massive sex dolls through the streets may become a thing of the past after a popular tourist hotspot on the Costa Brava in northern Spain introduced a law banning the lewd objects in public.

A resort town in Costa Brava has banned penis suits and sex dolls. The new ban is part of Platja d'Aro's efforts to clamp down on rowdy behavior. People caught sporting the scandalous items will be fined up to an eye-watering £1,250.

A new regulation has banned people from going out in public 'without clothing or only in their underwear or with clothing or accessories representing human genitals or with dolls or other accessories of a sexual nature.'

Those who are caught will have to pay fines of up to 1,500 euros, which is equivalent to around 1,250 pounds, La Vanguardia reported. Platja d'Aro, a popular destination for tourists during the summer months, announced it is cracking down on "clothing representing human genitals" with mayor Maurici Jiménez saying he would ban stag and hen dos altogether if he could.

The mayor said: "These attitudes have an impact on the community's coexistence and we need to fight against them." Mr Jiménez said bachelor parties sometimes "exceed" acceptable norms and the new law aims to address that as they clamp down on visitors.

The bylaw also forbids people from walking around shirtless or in swimsuits in areas that are not close to the beach. Platja d'Aro is not the first Spanish town aiming to curb pre-wedding parties, either.
