When I hear the term 'full frontal nudity' the 1979 "sex and sandals" film 'Caligula' springs to mind. Star Helen Mirren is not afraid to flash the flesh (and never has been!). Other examples include Kirsten Scott Thomas getting into the bathtub in 'The English Patient', Alan Bates and Oliver Reed nude wrestling in 'Women in Love', Richard Gere in 'American Gigolo' and the disturbing Laundry line-up in 'The Magdalene Sisters.'

Ewan McGregor has never been one to shy away from stripping off as he has appeared fully nude in 'Trainspotting' and 'Young Adam.' Rachel Miner (probably most famous for her brief marriage to Machauly Culkin) did alot of nude scenes in Larry Clarke's gritty 'Bully'. Recently ex-Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallett went full-frontal for straight-to-DVD offering 'Lake Placid 3'.

Alot has changed in the movie business in the last number of years with increased levels of full frontal nudity in many of today's offerings, particularly in European movies.

You should check out "9 Songs". That goes one level further than just nudity and it was released to the mainstream.

European movies have never been afraid to show everything, it's puritanical America where it's an issue.

And it's still much less common to see male full frontal than female.

There's actually a film called "Shortbus" as well that got an 18 certificate in this country and that arguably goes even further than "9 Songs" did.

I might have seen that. Did it have a dominatrix type woman make a man blow his load over a painting on the wall?

Yes if only male nudity was more exceptable the n edmund from Marnia could have a deleted scenes that would be worth watching

First time I saw that me and my housemates were quite taken aback. Good film, just not one to watch with relatives or prudes

If you're happy to tread that road, I can recommend 'Destricted' which is a diverse collection of shorts by various directors, on the theme of attitudes to pornography.

'Ken Park' (directed by Larry Clark) is also well worth seeking out.

If you want a fairly definitive list of the more spicy offerings available without having to frequent those age-constricted stores, take a look here:

Don't bother with the film Full Frontal (2002).

Not quite what I was expecting.

I had the same experience with Live Nude Girls which stars the excellent Kim Catrall. Still a decent film tho.

Ewan McGregor and Kate Winslet are never clothed.

What about full 'backal' nudity? I don't think I've ever seen anyone's bumhole in a 'proper' film. Not that I want to, it just seems to perhaps be the ultimate taboo. Granted there might be in some of the 'contains real sex' films referenced here, such as Shortbus, but I haven't seen most of them.

There was a time when hardcore porn was not easily avaliable. If you really need to see stuff now, even kids don't have to pause and rewind silly movies now

It just isn't as important anymore.

The Dreamers - I can't remember who it was, might have been Jake Gyllenhaal, didn't take the offer because of the full frontal nudity from all three leads in the film. Fantastic film, he missed out.

Michael Pitt was in that one, if I remember correctly?

Sharon Stone showed off her actual labia, not just her pubic hair in 'Basic Instinct', as did Hayley Marie Coppin in both the short and full length 'Cashback'.

Regards

"Cashback" is arguably my favourite film of all time, but not actually because of the nudity
