More Full-Frontal Male Nudity Is Desperately Needed In Hollywood, Says Kevin Bacon Who Is Willing To Take One For The Team

Kevin Bacon is just like us. He’s ridiculously tired of being cock-teased by films such as Fifty Shades of Gay Grey and Magic Mike. The handsome 57-year-old actor wants the entertainment industry to spend more time finding ways to get male actors out of their clothing in front of the camera for completely gratuitous nude scenes in TV series like Game of Thrones. You know, for equality, because if women are allowed to run around starkers so should men. Bacon, who’s never been shy about getting his kit off (we have seen Wild Things many times, thank you for asking, as well as Hollow Man), reveals that he has a clause in every film that requires him to drop trou but uptight producers are hell-bent on keeping the man down. Here’s hoping that will change with his campaign #FreeTheBacon and other leading men will be ready for their close-ups.

    He’s already done it twice that I know of.

  • Ladbrook

    The most dick-shy country in the western world is the US, and American actors are the worst. It’s gotten a little better in recent years, but only because so many foreign imports have pushed the envelope a little (Daniel Craig, Ewan McGregor, etc…).

  • BJ McFrisky

    Nudity is natural, not sexual.
    We Americans have never seemed to grasp this very basic concept.
    Our loss.

  • Kelly Akin

    Hes a hero.

  • Rob Bosley

    He will take three for the team. Remember: There is no “i” in “teaim.”

  • Kangol

    @Ladbrook: Don’t forget Michael Fassbender (fro Germany/Ireland), Colin Farrell (from Ireland)….

    Bacon is right. There should be much more male front nudity. It was absurd that in Magic Mike XXL and Chocolate City you saw no real male frontal nudity. Abs and things ? d*ck! There was more male frontal nudity on Real Housewives of Atlanta when Rid!ckulous performed for the ladies on there.

    Also, don’t forget that when Oliver Stone showed naked African American men, including several full frontal shots, in the locker room and shower scenes in On Any Given Sunday, it caused an uproar.

    The US can be such a weird place at times.

  • Meg H. Gibson

    I think we’d all like to see his “bacon”.

  • Sluggo2007

    The Bible Belt is most likely the reason we don’t have more full frontal male nudity.

  • Sammy Schlipshit

    What a coincidence….just watched Hollow man last night.

    There is Bacon’s bacon scattered throughout….even in special effects.

    Believe me, I worked the pause, reverse and slo-mo a lot.

    Got my fill of him showing his bacon….yum.

    The movie was so-so but watchable. Like a lot of movies it starts off sluggish but does pick up the pace.
    Just shut off your brain and go along for the ride.

    Kevin seems like a really nice, funny, smart guy.

  • LubbockGayMale

    Hetero American men are so afraid they might not ‘measure up’ to what’s on the ‘big screen’, but haven’t got any qualms about seeing a gal with implants, tush lift, etc, etc. Why penis envy and not ‘boob jealousy’? Who knows…

  • Billy Budd

    I Agree with Bacon.

  • M J Martinez Crogan

    It is NOT the conservative way….fake gods will punish you

  • Msb Stevens

    Past due as far as I’m concerned.

  • Matt Fritsvold

    Joey Loran Bacon giving up the bacon

  • Kieran

    This is definitely an issue a lot of gay men can get behind. ; )

  • Ladbrook

    @Sluggo2007: Yes to that, and just a general sense of American Puritanism that still permeates most of Hollywood.

    American straight men are scared shitless that someone will make fun of them if they aren’t “large enough.” All of them are major size queens. Every damn one is scared to death that someone might think they are too small.

    It’s so… 7th grade.

  • Sweetie Pie

    Most of American actors don’t want to show they have the Irish curse…that’s why

  • TeaForTwo

    I’m all for men showing their kit. If it’s ok to show women naked, at the drop of a hat, then let’s see the men too. Fair is fair. :)

  • 4of14

    Some of my favorite, American shows.
    Lie with me, Spartacus, Now & later.
    I’m sure there are, more. But yes, bring on more male nudity.

  • Curtispsf

    Free Willie!
