What makes the nude into a work of art? I just realized that I have yet to post a question about nude photography this year. Perhaps I am slipping.
Art historians and critics have ventured to make a distinction between the nude and the naked. In his book The nude: a study in ideal formKenneth Clark suggests that the naked human body is often self-conscious and may even be an embarrassment to the onlooker — shy, exposed and unprotected. The vague image it projects into the mind is not of a huddled and defenceless body, but of a balanced, prosperous and confident body.
Nude scenes in movies or television is a thing. It's a complex negotiation of weird costumes and props designed to hide certain body parts and choreography that is the opposite of sexy. Actors and actresses have long talked about how the process of making a sex scene look hot on screen is decidedly not hot at all.
Depictions of nudity include visual representations of nudity through the history, in all the disciplines, including the arts and sciences. Nudity is restricted in most societies, but some depiction of nudity may serve a recognized social function. Clothing also serves as a significant part of interpersonal communication, and the lack of clothing needs to have a social context.

Sometimes, the role centers on sex: sex addicts, porn stars, prostitutes. We put together a list of some of the biggest names to get naked for the camera; as long as they are on screen with nothing on. We start with the more subtle shots and the blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments, before getting to the A-listers who were happy to let it all hang out!
For a very long time in Hollywood, it was impossible to show nudity onscreen. Although movies in the silent era included fully naked bodies, from tocensors monitored every studio film closely for explicit content, flagging costumes that were too revealing or shots that were too leering. But by the early s, a few stars were willing to test the nude taboo. One of them was Marilyn Monroe.
