Contestants at the 2013 Miss World competition, held in Bali this September, will be required to wear sarongs instead of bikinis, CBS News reports. Apparently the no-swimsuit rule only applies to this year and came about after local organizers requested that the traditional Muslim customs of Indonesia be respected. So now all of the panting dudes and women who like to ogle other women’s bodies will just have to use their imaginations. And since contestants don’t have to starve their way to rock-hard six-packs, maybe they’ll actually maintain consciousness onstage this year!
