This post was inspired by some conversations I've had with blogger friends about nudity in movies and shows. There's quite a bit of full nudity, male and female, in the show Altered Carbon on Netflix, which was the primary conversation starter on this, but Westworld on HBO comes to mind as well. And of course Game of Thrones, which is notorious for its nudity and sexual content. The question is- how much is too much? Is there too much? Or is it all good?
This interview relates one experience doing a fully nude fight scene, and this leads to another question. Does it matter if it makes the actor/ actress uncomfortable doing the scene? At what point is it too much? I think usually this is heavily skewed towards women, and we can debate whether it's gratuitous or not, but we see also more full male nudity. Both Altered Carbon and Westworld are again examples. It's still way behind though. So I guess I have questions.
First, does full nudity bother you in shows? When it is too much? And is it more palatable if the nudity includes men?
How do you feel about it?
