Re: Why no male nudity?

Well, there can never be too much of that (female full frontal and posterior nudity ) unless it's of Roseanne Barr or Rosie O'Donnell (in which case, ANY nudity is far, far too much).

Well, think we could probably dig up a shot of Ted Kennedy on the beach, that would disprove that.

Fine, I'll modify my earlier statement to "fit, muscular male chests".

Re: Why no male nudity?

I can't go out, or to bed, anymore. I miss discussions like this...

As a straight woman, there's just something great about a guy with a solid body. We don't even have to go below the belt to appreciate it. (Actually, it's preferable to stay above and, um, around).

I agree, Ben Browder DOES look good in Farscape.

As for Jeremiah's marketing, yeah, I've noticed the skew towards targeting the male market. But that's entirely normal, especially in science fiction.

I must be a guy or something, because I can't wait for this damned show.

Re: Why no male nudity?

*giggles at Channe*

I have to agree with every word in your last post. I seem to miss great discussions while sleeping or eating too.

Most aspects of the male body are nice to look at as long as they are fit (toned and not bodybuilder types). There are a few good looking pen!s' around but for the most part, they are just u-g-l-y. Everything else is game ... especially the @$$! *drools*

*checks herself* Yeah, I guess I must be a man in a woman's body too!

Re: Why no male nudity?

Personally, I think it's all relative.

For example, how many times have we seen on TV some poor fellow have a heart attack? Medical entities invariably arrive; rip the poor man's shirt and undershirt to shreds; and try to shock his heart back into a regular rhythm with those electric paddle thingys. Somtimes, after watching the man's chest wiggle violently, the patient survives!

That's all well and good, but how many times have we seen a woman fall down on the sidewalk, and have the medics come over and rip her blouse off and make her chest wiggle violently? It's as if women don't have heart disease at all!
