Within the last few years, TV shows have reinvented the way in which we approach teenage issues. The hit Netflix shows 13 Reasons Why and To All the Boys I've Loved are breaking new ground in the ways we discuss important issues such as bullying, suicide, the intensity of your first real crush, and the need to fit in—acknowledging the reality that navigating this stage of early adulthood isn't nearly as easy as the teen movies of yesteryear would have us believe. And yet, there's something so deliciously enjoyable about the teen rom-coms of the '80s, '90s, and early aughts, with their stock characters, formulaic plots, and happy endings. There's a comfort to their predictability, and a joy in the way that they remind you of a time when all of your emotions were so extreme and life, in all its glory, was wide open with possibility. And some of them are worth watching for the fashion alone did we really wear chokers?

A hyperreal nude redefining beauty - BBC Reel
Horror movies have a long tradition of throwing in some nudity to spice things up between the kill scenes, and here's the franchises that do it most. Regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, lots of moviegoers enjoy a good nude scene, even if as a guilty pleasure. Sex sells, after all, and people do by and large enjoy it.

Of the types of horror films, none is more closely associated with nudity and sex scenes then the slasher, which ruled the s and has never entirely gone extinct.

Once upon a time read: the '80s , movie fans could count on the fact that at some point, someone in the movie would randomly drop trou or rip off their shirt for no apparent reason whatsoever. And frankly, it was great. After all, why worry about things like plot or character development when you can have some good old-fashioned gratuitous nudity instead?
Ever since humanity learned to doodle on the walls of the caves it called home, we have been treated to depictions of sex and the human body in art. It is hardwired into our DNA to enjoy the sexual act, and it's nearly impossible to look away when we see it presented on screen. Filmmakers who portray sex and nudity in their pictures walk a fine line: if you can justify the inclusion of bare skin, like the recent Palme d'Or winner Blue Is The Warmest Colour, a feature that chronicles the love affair between an underage student and her female teacher in graphic detail, then you have earned respectability while also appealing to the baser desires of moviegoers; however, if you fail to justify excessive amounts of nudity and sex in your feature, then you have crossed the line from being an artist to a purveyor of smut, like Zalman King. A hilarious parody of musical biopics, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story skewered the tendency for biographical films about musicians to ignore the music and instead wallow in the excesses of the Rock 'n' Roll lifestyle.
