Here’s a good question for everyone. Which Movies and TV shows do you think portray nudity in a positive light? And why in your opinion.

I can think of the following:

Movies

Sheena - The way that “Sheena” is at ease with her nudity almost as if she doesn’t realize that she is nude.
Beastmaster - The way that the “slaves” are enjoying a bath in the “river” or whatever body of water that it is that they’re in.
Altered States - Just the general acceptance of the human body.
The Abyss - Towards the end when they’re trying to save the life of female member of the crew who allowed herself to drown so that she and her husband could get back to the base.
Starship Troopers - The shower room scene where everyone is telling why they joined the Mobil Infantry.
10 - Because of the innocent way that the young Bo Derek is comfortable with her nudity. Question is Ms Derek IRL a nudist?
Swordfish - Halle Berry’s topless scene w/Hugh Jackman. Even though Hallie has said in interviews that she considered it to be “gratuitous,” she said that she did it because she felt that that is how her character would have behaved.
To me IF her character was comfortable enough in her own skin NOT to be embarassed to be seen by someone else then it isn’t/wasn’t “gratuitous.”

TV

Malcolm in the Middle - The pilot episode where his mother answers the door without first putting on a shirt or blouse or in trying to cover up the fact she isn’t wearing any sort of top.
Eight is Enough - When the father took the youngest son to the “Y” to teach him how to swim, and they walk out of the locker room to the pool area nude, only to find out that nudity isn’t allowed at the “Y” anymore.
The commercial (I can’t remember what they’re selling) where the woman goes into her closet looking for something to wear to the party that she’s hosting, and she walks out to the party wearing only a pair of black shoes.
The Subaru/Suzuki commercial where the woman gets into an elevator and changes out of her work clothes and into her exercise clothes.

Sadly, other then the above mentioned shows/commercials I really can’t think of too many that have shown nudity in a positive or even semi-positive light.

I think that most “teen” movies used nudity to titillate, rather then someone just being nude in the normal course of their day. I was gonna list a few more of Bo’s movies, as she truly appears to be at ease with going nude in her movies.

I think that Logan’s Run might be another good example. Particularly when Logan and Jennifer are “running” and they get to Box’s cave and he has so many runners frozen for storage.

Even though it was used more for comic effect/relief I think that the TV Series M*A*S*H is a good example.

For my $.02, the 1988 film "Castaway" with Amanda Donohoe and Oliver Reed is a tremendous picture of living cloths free. While there are lots of struggles living on the island, there is a simplicity to their lives that is very attractive.

I have to agree with the Castaway selection...i have often had fantasies of living simply in such a fashion....then i remember the sand flies..without them it would be paradise

One I watched recently with non-sexual nudity was "Off The Map" (http://imdb.com/title/tt0332285/).

Although the nudity itself (male and female) was non-sexual, the female nudity was used to build a sexual tension.

I spent a week camping on an island that was a five minute boat ride from the beach that Blue Lagoon was filmed on, that whole area is awesome, although you need to watch out for sea snakes...

Yeah, I don't think that it would have had the impact that it did, if it was censored. I hate the idea that had to get "special" permission to air it uncut, and uncensored.

Has anyone watched Going Tribal on the Travel Channel. The other night the Chief told the camera man, "we don't need clothes, it's more comfortable that way".

Try "The Notorious Bettie Paige". It's an interesting take on 1950's pin-up nudism from the rather innocent perspective of Bettie ... even while she's being exploited for the titillation of others.

Doc,

I wouldn't say that she was "exploited" as she knew the kind of photo's that Irving Klaw took, and knew that if she wanted to work for him. That she'd have to take part in those photo's.

There's been plenty of articles on her that said that she was willing to take part in those photo's so as to be photographed by Irving Klaw. So given that, how was she "exploited?" She has also refused to do appearance's as an "older" model, because she doesn't want to "disapoint" her legion of fans.

That is true... it helped portray the negativity even more. What I do find sad as well, not just that they needed "special" permission to show it with the nudity on broadcast television, but that they didn't need "special" permission to show people being killed or dead bodies being moved in large wheelbarrows.

That is one thing I have noticed change over time. When I was younger, I remember shows on PBS showing natives in other countries living how they always have. Now, if a show is on a place where they live mostly nude, they smudge out the nudity... even on cable channels like TLC and Discovery.

When I was in Ireland, there were movies on that would be rated R here due to nudity on regular TV in the afternoon.

In France back in the early 90's, there were two commercials I remember also since they wouldn't be shown here due to nudity. One was a Danon Yogurt commercial that starts at a woman's head and moves down her body. She is eating the yogurt... as it gets to her abdomen the camera rotates around her body while continuing down... passing her butt all the way to her feet... it ended by saying something about being Healthy and Natural. She was completely nude.

The other commercial was for kitchen shelving. Showed a woman come home with groceries. She took off her top and started putting the groceries away. It ended saying something about the shelving giving her freedom.

Neither one was sexual... but of course they were attractive women. It is still a "sex" sells marketing theme... but the Eurpeans know there is a difference between things.
