@MandaMack: I don’t think the OP was asking whether or not she should watch HBO.

It doesn’t really bother me one way or another.  Male, female…however, when watching Boardwalk Empire (episode 1) with my parents over the weekend, I would prefer no nudity!  LOL.  What can you do.  As one PP said…it’s HBO.  It’s what they do.

My husband and I had Boardwalk Empire on in the background last night while we were talking. He stopped mid-sentence and goes “that is a boob” and then continued back onto what we were talking about. It was too funny. 

We watch a lot of HBO, but somehow we both still get surprised when someone gets naked on it.

Ok I have to disagree with the whole “women are more graceful” So not true. Our society has just told us that by exploiting women forever. I agree though, if we see naked women, we ought to see naked men…Not that I want to see either. Imagine if I became a famous singer and I talked about “thong thong thongs” (for guys) or “HE got back” lol… everyone would be in shock. We are not used to degrading men…just WOMEN!! Not fair…

@DanielleZara:  I definitely agree – women are seen as more beautiful because we grow up our whole lives thinking of women’s bodies as something that are put on display.  If we grew up seeing men objectified that way it would be a different story. (and of course we would only be seeing the most genetically gifted 1% of men on display and even that would be totally airbrushed).

I’m one for equality, too.  Neither male nor female upsets me, but the endless parade of naked women gets kind of depressing.  Some of the men are worth looking at, and others?  I for one thing that seeing dudes flopping around is always, at the very least, entertaining.

(then again, I have a pretty crude sense of humor)

You could chase every episode of Bordwalk Empire with an Episode of Oz and that oughta do ya.

I, too, would rather see a random naked woman.  I really don’t think that the cadaver was gratuitous nudity. Cadavers don’t need clothes. The sex scene with the boobs was pretty mild to me.  I think it’s more natural to see a topless woman having sex than a woman in a bra. Do you wear your bra and nothing else when doing the deed?

@Entangled: Yes, Exactly! Glad I’m not alone here in my opinion. 🙂
