Mrs. S has a point though. I was all for loosening of language restrictions. Nothing quite packs the same punch as "fuck". However, in a lot of ways, that loosening became a crutch and led to lazy writing and often tedious writing. I suspect a loosening of taboo on male frontal nudity will have the same effect, although I think it is time. We'll soon be having the obligatory cock shot, the same way we have the obligatory female nude scene to the point of tedium. I'll miss the creativity that had to be used to try to get around the rules.

It's time the audience grew up. It's not that big a deal.
Now to walk the fine line between taboo and gratuitousness.

I can do without the full frontal shots from either sex.
It often shows a lack of creativity, just throw a T&A shot in to please the folks at home.
It kinda wrecks the continuity for me, I end up giggling and thinkig,"ooh, I just saw .....'s wang, tee hee hee."



maybe that's just me though

i think penis size is alllllll in a man's head. I also think if every time you're looking at a man and goes 'wow he's small!' get a life! Its not like you're going to be using it for your own enjoyment anyway.

Why do we care about the size? Its total bullshit from a womans perspective. Of course if its a button mushroom there is going to be problems, but everyone knows that men have different sizes, and really, i highly doubt they're going to go in for a 5 minute close up so we can scrutinise every single thing.

also - i don't think size is a problem - i think its the slight of a flaccid penis
sorry, but ewww ewww ewww

I always do a bit of a double-take when I see male FFM, just because it's so unusual. I mean, I'm watching Any Given Sunday and there they are in the locker room, and what do you know, camera pans down and there they are, a regular penis buffet. I do think it isn't shown because there's an assumption that showing a penis will alienate a large part of your male audience (O NOZ I SAW A DICK I'M GAY!!!!111!1). Not sure how many men would actually avoid a film because there was a penis shot but I do think the studios consider that.

And yes I think there are probably male actors who prefer not to show it...either they don't want to just because, or they're small, or their flaccid penis is snall. And I agree breasts/penis isn't a fair comparison...I'd say penis/vagina is more comparable, and you never see the pink in mainstream film.

i think it's time we took a moment to appreciate all penises in all their various forms -- cut or uncut, hard or soft, big or small, thick or thin, and sometimes all of the above.

:Pray:

Besides I'm curious.
Agreed. When I read the first few posts, "size" never came into my mind. It seems to me that guys are the ones always bringing that up, so......

see also Sean's statement:

It's about time men get put under the unforgiving searchlight for a change. Whatever new psychological angst might result will probably be small potatoes compared to what women have had endure over the millenia.
yup.

Well, for any guy that's watched straight porn, seeing an erect penis shouldn't be a big deal at all.
Hell, in that movie SuperBad, there's a whole scene about a straight boy's obsession with erect penises. Very funny scene, btw.

I can think of a (justly) much more famous icon of the beautiful male form who isn't nearly as "sizeable":

and done by perhaps the most famous homosexual in history ... and begun on MY BIRTHDAY ...

on an honest note, it has always struck me as odd how is penis looks prepubescent, but what's so noticeable about that statue, at least when i saw it, is that exquisite tilt in the hips.



i want to go back to Italy.
