Return to the Blue Lagoon (1991)

'Fifteen years before our story begins, two children were shipwrecked on an uncharted island. The little boy and girl grew up alone in this lost paradise. As man and woman, they discovered a pure and natural love. In time, a child was born. But in a tragic accident, they were driven out to sea away from their island. Drifting for days, they believed that their lives and the life of their baby were at an end. Then a passing vessel drew near...'

Brian Krause

Although he didn't pull an Atkins, going full frontal during his time at the Lagoon, Krause does look hot in just his leather loincloth.  I believe Krause's only nude scene was a brief butt shot in 1993's The Liar's Club.  I don't generally include scenes that feature rapes or sexual assaults, but this was the actors only on-screen nudity, so I edited just a brief clip with the side view of his butt.

Brenton Thwaites

The Blue Lagoon: The Awakening (2012)

In addition to being incredibly hot, actor Brenton Thwaites is also incredibly talented, and is a bit of chameleon, moving in and out of his projects with different looks.  Although I look forward to more down the road, I think Thwaites only nude scene was a brief butt flash in 2014's Son Of A Gun.

Christopher Atkins in A Night in Heaven

'Hey! What about my clothes!!!!'

The last line spoken from stripper Rick Monroe, (Christopher Atkins) sort of sums 1983's A Night in Heaven, and in many ways... Christopher's short lived film career.  I remember in the late 80's when I was old enough enough to go to the video store and rent on my own.  I had seen images of Atkins promoting the film in magazines and was eager to the film for myself.

I remember renting it the flick several times, always placing it on the store's counter under a copy of Star Wars, Ghostbusters, or The Terminator.  I sneak in and watch and re-watch Atkins' nude scenes again and again.  For some reason, maybe due to those white pants, the stripping scenes were not really that hot.  Although Atkins showed the full Monty in his love scene, the stripping scenes were rather tame.

The nudity in The Blue Lagoon was pretty daring, especially for the early 80's, and given his first role was frolicking naked on a deserted island, Atkins career was destined to be focused on the baring of skin.  It seemed he attempted to move away into other roles briefly, but in the end, seemed to accept his claim to fame, and posed naked again in his late 30's for Greg Gorman's book As I See It.

That Boat Scene....

The boat scene remains one of the most exploitative, not too mention, peculiar scenes of male scenes ever in a mainstream movie.  There is of course an erotic element given Atkins is naked, and the cmnm dynamic with the jilted husband.  The scene is just so... well, too much, especially given he's being held naked at gun point.

Atkins acting is especially painful to watch in the scene.  I don't necessarily blame Akins, although no Marlon Brando, he was capable of pulling off a scene if written with limited abilities in mind. I blame the director and editor.  I know they were going for the erotic vulnerablity, but they could have done a few more takes as some of the lines were cringe worthy, and could have been better if there were any interest in making the scene anything more than a reason to show Atkins naked again.

Popped! Able by Richard Rothstein

'My world away from the world.'

I'm always amazed with how Richard Rothstein is able to capture such different feels, and such unique poses and shots with each individual model he shoots on the roof, his world away from the world.  Able seems to almost channel the strength and pride Richard feels about his roof top escape through his stance and poses.

Able appears to be drawing in the power of the city, meeting the sun and sky like a superhero, minus the spandex, leather and tights.  In some images he reminds me of Superman, standing guard over his metropolis.  In others, he resembles Spiderman as he scales the brick walls.

As you can see, the balloons are gone for this part of the shoot, but unlike the red rubber, Able certainly was't deflated, especially when Sergey joined the shoot. Sergey was also photographing Able, but couldn't resist stepping into his role as a model for a few shots at the end of the shoot.
