Hollywood wasn’t afraid to get the boys to bare it all this year, and here’s the pick of the bunch from Mr. Man.
After years of nude female bodies being overexposed to the point of objectification in the media, we have finally ventured into a place where male nudity and sexuality being explored more openly in TV and film. It’s important to note the progress the industry is making when it comes to male sexuality. And Mr. Man has done just that!
Cinema also ventured deep into the explicit in several of the year’s top pictures, perhaps none more so than on HBO’s The White Lotus. It featured multiple erotic scenes but the one everyone was talking about at the water cooler was the scene between Lukas Gage and Murray Bartlett.
For his part, Gage welcomed the attention. “I can’t wait for my ass to get retweeted all over the Internet,” he said. And, oh… It definitely did.
Halston, the Netflix miniseries about the rise and fall of the iconic couture designer, was as sexually-forward as it was fashion-forward. It had everything fans could expect from a Ryan Murphy production: rock music, drugs and loads of runway looks!
But, it was the eye-popping nakedness that truly captivated fans in 2021 — especially the scene where Ewan McGregor and 6’4 tall Sullivan Jones engage in very realistic intimacy.
“Hollywood continues to push the boundaries when it comes to nudity and sex,” says Phil Henricks of Mr. Man, the world’s leading online library of every male nude scene in the history of film and television. “Many of the scenes we saw play out on screen in 2021 simply would not have happened in previous years.”
That includes a scene in Violation featuring a fully erect, blindfolded, Jesse LaVercombe and Peter Vacks’ masturbation scene in PVT Chat. Sebastian Stan’s steamy getaway in Monday, featuring the actor driving a moped fully nude through the city streets of Athens, was also definitely a fan favorite this year. But, the most talked about scene in Twitterverse this year was probably Adam Demos’ impressive showing in the shower in Sex/Life.
