Most incidences of female nudity in mainstream film will be sexual, while most instances of male nudity are comedic. Think the perpetually naked Hodor in Game of Thronesor the schoolgirls in Love Actually giggling at pictures of naked men while Andrew Lincoln's character protests feebly, "Actually, men not funny — they're art. Women have seen something of a move toward comedic female nudity in the last few years, which is progress even if women's bodies only become comedic when they deviate from the young, slim, nubile ideal think the perpetually horny Megan in Naked telling the air marshall that he should be able to "feel the heat from my undercarriage".
This isn't a million miles away from the treatment of men, who have in the past been presented as naked figures of fun because of their own imperfect bodies.

Even the positive aspects of a body focus, such as an increased desire to protect from harm, can be ultimately harmful, the authors say, pointing to the "benevolent sexism" common in the United States in the s, in which men oppressed women under the guise of protecting them.

Women do not live in the world this way. They are men exposed everyday to images that legitimize their lust; instead, the images teach women that they are the object of that lust.
