    I am not insecure at all. I think of myself as a very strong and secure women. But I have problem when excessive female nudity in movies that are placed only to pleasure men. Boobs dont bother me if it adds to the story and in moderation.

    My problem is that movies show the "privates" of a women in front of my BF. No story required that.

    I recently watched a movie with my SO and it showed a very attractive, fit nude women, smiling seductively clearly trying to arouse men. It zoomed to her "bottoms" showed full hair and almost lips.

    The scene was pointless, unnecessary, and unexpected. It is immoral to film this trash and showed it to kids and men.
    I feel bad for the girls who are paid to be broadcast to kids and men everywere. ?This content should not be shown in family entertainment where viewers did not sign up to see that.
    My issue is that is disrespectful of women to show exposed women purley to shock the audience. ?While some scenes are acceptable, most are not.

    Thoughts? Experiences with this with bf?

      I just saw Captain Fantastic, a highly rated movie starting Viggo Mortensen. The only nude scene was a full frontal view of VM. Was the scene necessary? Not at all.

      Yes, there are quite a few movies with naked boobs. But maybe we have more to fear from the massive amount of pornography on the Internet and whether it is a contributing factor to our country's sexual assault problem.

      Likewise, I am offended by the new Kingsman movie that shows a guy being stuffed into a grinder, expelled as ground meat and made into a hamburger that a henchman proceeds to eat. I walked out at that point.

      Sex and violence sell movies. When it goes too far, we can stop buying the tickets or renting the DVDs. Otherwise, we're stuck with it.

      I suspect the movie you described was rated R and was never released for children to watch. Parental control options are available on most cable and TV channels providers.

      What is "moral" is subjective. Odds are there are plenty of men and women who have no issue with what was in the movie.

      I wouldn't bother feeling "sorry" for the nude actresses. They got paid for their role and knew what the scenes entailed before agreeing to do them. Odds are they're very comfortable with their own bodies and nudity.
      These days before any movie comes on TV there is a black screen with white letters that reveal if  a movie contains graphic violence and nudity.
      Promisem, "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" is also a R rated movie.
      Generally speaking R rated movies do contain violence, sex, and cursing.

    Come on, no movie with that extent of nudity is considered a “family” movie and that’s on whoever got the movie for not checking the rating before showing it to their kids. Adult scenes don’t need to be cut from all film because people can’t figure out what’s appropriate to show their kids.

    As for not liking that movies show nudity to your boyfriend, I don’t know, that seems really weird to me. Presumably he’s a grown man and has seen naked people before? I would also presume he’s capable of seeing a naked woman without turning into a horny canine and humping the furniture. Perhaps you should give your boyfriend a bit more credit.

    Do you feel sorry for male actors who do nude scenes or is it specifically women? If it’s just the women then you’re part of the problem. A woman can choose to show her body if that’s what she wants to do. It would be disrespectful and inappropriate to force a woman to be naked on screen but there’s nothing wrong with her choosing it.

      Well said.  Made me laugh with the boyfriend scenario, but it's all too true.

      Seems like just more of the "control" syndrome: "I don't like it so nobody else is allowed to do/see/have it either".  Memories of prohibition, blue laws, gay marriage bans and even "decency laws" that are still widely enforced.

    Hypersexualization of women is problematic, yes, but you can always just, I don't know, NOT watch a certain movie if it's bothering you?  Is someone holding a gun to your head forcing you to watch these films?  Maybe you can close your eyes or fast forward scenes that are making you uncomfortable.

    Agree with dashingscorpio. Ratings are there for a reason as are the parental controls on a tv and most hand-held devices. Viewers can even get advertisments taken off free-to-air television by making a complaint.
    And I agree with Aima F.
