When it comes to on-screen male nudity, viewers are often hard to please. This is especially true when it comes to the often scarce full frontal, Many complain there isn't enough male nudity in films and on television. You can't really argue that when it comes to nudity, the nude bodies in question are usually female.
I'm not really a complainer about the amount nudity on film, and especially on TV. Growing up, watching TV in the eighties and nineties, there was little to skin to be seen, except for some quick flashes of butt on NYPD Blue. Even HBO wasn't really the HBO it's become in the last two decades. Today, from my perspective, there's plenty of skin to be seen, especially if you know where to look. Sure, there are still far more women nude on screen than men, but there have been considerable changes over the last few year.
I don't even mind body doubles, not for butt shots, but for frontals. My issue is how often the producers and the actors themselves spoil the mystery. Some actors with films in their fantasy's, like to ensure it's known the penis in question wasn't actually attached to them. What bothers me more than body doubles, is the increase in use of editing tricks and computer generated imagery. It's rumored some of the nudity in HBO's Watchmen was created with CGI, and to me, I rather them not bother. If you have to CGI in a body part, it might be better to just leave it out..
It was a nice touch then, to cast porn actor Jayden Marcos to play Tyler in the second of the two Christmas episodes. The shows were scaled down due to Covid, and each focused on just one character. In Fuck Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob, the story was focused on the journey of Jules. Tyler was a small part of her journey, but hot one, and one that required a (dark) full frontal. Many of you might know Jayden from his films, many from GayHoopla.
