RE:Casual Sex and the Entertainment Industry

I remember the TV show Friends were over the years it seemed almost every character had slept with each other in some way. But any mention of nudity always freaked them out. Remember the whole " ugly naked guy " running joke about a guy visible from the apartment?

They are all acting. Maybe the actors are more willing to fake sex than they are to get naked (which can't be faked).

Yes in the US naked aggression is perfectly acceptable, in many cases even for toddlers. But a naked nipple? Never!

I think with pornhub which is kind of a porn youtube and cybersex (the market leader is I think is chaturbate) nakedness and sex is viewed by many people in the society. Nakedness is conditioned with sex and with sex business. A nice example is the intimate shaving. Young people were watching porn. The porn actors were all shaved. So the young people started intimate shaving. Then on the other hand young people are prudish or ashamed to be naked in public because they do not want to show everybody that they are shaved. The society is kind of sexualized that natural nakedness is difficult to reach.

Now I've seen at least a dozen episodes of The Big Bang Theory where the couples were not only in bed together, but clearly either getting ready for sex or just finished with sex. Similarly, the whole subject of homosexuality was taboo back in the middle of the last century; now openly gay characters, while not exactly common, are seen enough to arouse no controversy.

It's interesting that Jim Parsons and Sara Gilbert, who are both openly gay, played straight characters on that show. But the other thing that I found genuine was that the sex didn't always go well. And sometimes it evoked feelings that challenged the characters, leading them to question their attitudes on sex and relationships. That realism added a lot to the show, I think.

In Australia, it's only slightly ahead of the USA. The general attitude seems to be that anything related to violence or sex is OK. But nudity is something weird.
We have a state-owned TV station, promoted as a multicultural broadcaster, which occasionally shows European programmes with full nudity. None of this ridiculous pixelating that occurs on American shows.

Try watching the Marvel shows, shown here on the CW network. The Flash, Supergirl.... gay is loud and proud in those shows.

In Germany nakedness and sex on TV has decreased in the last 20 years, violence has increased. I do not know why this is happening.

I have read elsewhere that nudity in Germany has decreased partly because the growing Muslim minority is less comfortable with nudity than ethnic Germans. Do you think that this is a contributing factor?

My bet I would be Hollywood influence, unfortunately the uptight US entertainment attitudes that shows lots of violence but freaks out when part of a breast is exposed has too much influence.
