A SPANISH holiday hotspot is to get even tougher on stag and hen parties by bringing in some strict new rules.
Regulations hope to stamp down on both indecent outfits and inappropriate objects often seen at such parties.
The Costa Del Sol has brought in the new laws that specifically ban anyone from getting naked in the street, or wearing just underwear.
Meanwhile, anyone carrying objects that "represent human genitals" or "dolls of a sexual nature" can also be fined.
Malaga already has strict laws in place, including fines for using megaphones or general unruly behaviour, as well as drinking in the street.
Some pubs and clubs even have a total ban on stag or hen parties and refuse to let revellers in.

Now, Malaga city council has gone one step further in its tough stance and this week the authority approved new clauses to its existing laws.
In future, anyone in a stag or hen party found naked in the street or stripped down to their undies will be fined €750 (£670).
The same penalty will apply to anyone who carries an object, doll or inflatable which looks like a private body part or of any sexual nature.
Fines will amount to £670, although police will initially dish out warnings.

It means a new section will be included to their rules of "inappropriate uses of public space" in the Ordinance for the Guarantee of Citizen Coexistence.
Specifically, according to the new rules, "except for municipal authorisation for specific places, it is prohibited to travel or remain on the road or public spaces without clothes or only in underwear.
"With clothes or accessories that represent the genitals of the human being or with dolls/ as or elements of a sexual nature."
The city council also ruled: "The agents of the authority will inform, first of all, the people involved regarding the existence of the prohibition contemplated in this ordinance, and only if the impermissible attitude persists, will proceed to formulate the pertinent complaint."
Simply put, people will be warned and informed of the rules first, then they will receive a fine if they continue to ignore them.
In a statement, Malaga City Council said: "Our objective is to put a stop to some uncivil behaviour that may disturb coexistence among residents.
"The proliferation in recent years of certain behaviours associated with nudism, the use of underwear or erotic content in public spaces advises giving the municipality a new regulation.
"The ultimate goal is to preserve public space as a place for meeting, coexistence and civility, in which all people can freely carry out their activities of free movement, leisure and recreation, with full respect for others and for the plurality of expression."
