Who gets naked in the movies?

Nudity in the Movies

“In 2012’s top 100 films, women were three times as likely as men to get naked. In the 500 top-grossing films between 2007 and 2012, about 40 percent of Hispanic female characters were partially naked, compared to 33 percent of white women, 31 percent of black women, and 16 percent of Asian women. And teen cinematic nudity is on the rise, increasing 22 percent between 2009 and 2012. In 2012’s top 100 movies, 13- to 20-year-old female characters were more likely to be partially naked than actresses 21 to 39 years old.”

I was just thinking about this today. I thought, “Women definitely have to get naked more than men in the media. I wonder what the numbers are…”

Here you go.

***I know the image used is not from 2012 and I also know only her shoulders and up are shown. It was just the perfect picture.
