I am not saying that violent scenes in movies and tv shows like the walking dead should be censored. But if it is okay to show such immense amounts of gore, why is it such a bad thing to show a woman's nipples? What is wrong with out society? What is so offensive about women's nipples? You can show spilled guts but not nipples? Does anyone feel me here?

What is remarkable to me is that even the most unrelenting violence alone will not merit any higher (usually) than a PG-13 rating in the United States... but a woman's exposed chest alone will get a movie a minimum of an R rating...

In any case, it's clear that in America, sex of any kind is more taboo than violence. Sad. Quite sad, indeed.

To be fair, I think the standard for R is simply a prolonged nudity. But, your overall point remains.

Well, really thinking about this subject makes it pretty complicated.

For example.

Although it's a preposterous notion now that I'm grown, there was once a time that seeing a girl's breasts hanging out would give me an erection. It may even elicit the desire to masturbate, looking at the image or scene.

However, there was never at time that violence would give me any sort of physiological reaction. Inclusion in a movie or show would simply make the show more compelling or exciting, or even, more realistic, but once it's done, it's done. I don't generally watch movies for violence in and of itself. Stylized violence, maybe. Exciting action, perhaps. But, violence alone? No. Mindless violence? No.

The porn industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, though, and it has achieved this through mindless sexual displays.

This said, maybe there's another way of looking at it.

Perhaps, like so many other mores in this society, that particular taboo is driven by corporate giants that would lose a ridiculous amount of money if people no longer considered something as simple as a nipple a big deal anymore.

Although it was no longer that exciting after I grew out of preadolescence, there are people, both male and female, who remain excited by seeing something as simple as a nipple their entire lives, and although they won't admit it, many of their interests and entertainment expenditures revolve around seeing a nipple or some labia. Simply given the fact that these things are taboo and considered naughty, the mere suggestion of them is exciting enough, which begins to bleed into other, less direct, but equally profitable interests, such as lingerie and pretty models attracting eyes to cars or athletic competition.

Indeed, making nipples a common thing that someone could be desensitized to from childhood could collapse our very economy.

Perhaps, we must maintain the taboo in order to maintain the country at large, and ironically, our obsession with sex, nipples, phalli, and labia.

Brief nudity is not.
Certain other nude scenes are not (I think it is context, like sex is not occuring, IDK)
Think American Pie movies being PG-13 with an extended long topless scene.

It was just always odd to me that, as a kid, my parents had no problem with me playing violent video games, watching movies like Braveheart and Gladiator even when I was 11... or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (I think I was in middle school when that came out?)... but they were terrified that I was having sex, or even that I was thinking about sex. They fast forwarded through any sex scenes, always, if they were there when I or my brother or sister were watching movies. Well, my mother was terrified, at least. My dad didn't so much care... he also, I think, figured out I was gay when I was about 14 (by going through my browser history). My mom took a little while longer... lol.

I only saw the first two, in theaters.
Of course, maybe the rules have changed for ratings since then (what, like 10 years ago these came out).
I've heard that smoking is an automatic "R", or was at least considered. Ugh...

HA!
I just checked IMBD, and apparently I was wrong. (actually makes sense given the length of the scene)

I heard there were edits to avoid NC-17 rating to have R, and I got confused with avoiding the R for PG-13.

However, I still stand by the brief nudity allowance, but I'll try to find evidence.

Role Models is 14A, despite having brief nudity.

I heard of a push, I don't think they went for it. (probably a parent's group of some sort that was hyped/misrepresented in the drive-by media)

However, to prove my case, here is the relevant part of brief nudity:
More than brief nudity will require at least a PG-13 rating, but such nudity in a PG-13 rated motion picture generally will not be sexually oriented.

I don't know if you saw my recanting of my previous American Pie rating, but I recanted already.

It's cool. But "brief" nudity is a bit ambiguous. I'll bet two guys making out in bed together would be an automatic NC-17...

Jake Gyllenhall starred in a movie with a whole lot of gay sex.

Like, huffing and puffing and all this.

It was rated R after all.

Another way of looking at this, the fact that my previous comment was ignored notwithstanding, is that you'll see quite a bit of violence on an elementary school playground naturally, but not a whole lot of sex.

I mean, one can say that it's reinforced by the violence people see, but it doesn't require a whole lot of experience to ball your hand into a fist and punch someone in the face with the right provocation, although some people are never inspired to take off their clothes and get naughty with other people.

My point is that, although sex is natural and necessary for human survival, perhaps humans are more inclined to violence than sex.

And subjective, too. But, I think they're pretty consistent (or at least used to be). I can't think of a lot of nudity in PG-13 movies, though. The only brief nude scenes I can think of off the top of my head are R, like Ricochete and Demolition Man, and that had violence and language.

I'll bet two guys making out in bed together would be an automatic NC-17...
Double standard if it is, but I would say it should be at least PG-13, depending.

Ever see Brokeback Mountain? How graphic was that? That was only R, I think.

Any nudity at all gets an R rating, unless the MPAA has changed its standards since I last checked.

Brief nudity is not.
Certain other nude scenes are not (I think it is context, like sex is not occuring, IDK)
Think American Pie movies being PG-13 with an extended long topless scene.

I only saw the first two, in theaters.
Of course, maybe the rules have changed for ratings since then (what, like 10 years ago these came out).
I've heard that smoking is an automatic "R", or was at least considered. Ugh...

Cigarettes? No. Weed? Yes. lol

I heard of a push, I don't think they went for it. (probably a parent's group of some sort that was hyped/misrepresented in the drive-by media)

However, to prove my case, here is the relevant part of brief nudity:
More than brief nudity will require at least a PG-13 rating, but such nudity in a PG-13 rated motion picture generally will not be sexually oriented.

I don't know if you saw my recanting of my previous American Pie rating, but I recanted already.

It's cool. But "brief" nudity is a bit ambiguous. I'll bet two guys making out in bed together would be an automatic NC-17...

Jake Gyllenhall starred in a movie with a whole lot of gay sex.

Like, huffing and puffing and all this.

It was rated R after all.

I actually did forget about Brokeback Mountain... oops.

And subjective, too. But, I think they're pretty consistent (or at least used to be). I can't think of a lot of nudity in PG-13 movies, though. The only brief nude scenes I can think of off the top of my head are R, like Ricochete and Demolition Man, and that had violence and language.

Double standard if it is, but I would say it should be at least PG-13, depending.

Ever see Brokeback Mountain? How graphic was that? That was only R, I think.

Fair point. I actually forgot about Brokeback Mountain for a bit. I have seen it, but it's been a while. I didn't really like it... probably why I forgot it.

I was actually asking because I am curious, I never saw it, and I have no interest in seeing it. I actually don't know how graphic any of it is. Is it the outside of the tent rocking? Or do you see their sweating faces by moonlight?

If it is the former, and it got R, that could be a double standard. If not, then it is a counter example.
My work here is, finally, done.

It's certainly suggested, although actual "sex" isn't shown, as I recall. I could be wrong though...

If I recall correctly, it wasn't even clear who was pitching or catching.

Lame.

I agree.

Titanic didn't.
But, your overall point remains.

In any case, it's clear that in America, sex of any kind is more taboo than violence. Sad. Quite sad, indeed.

Or lose the race to rats

And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I don't remember tits being visible... although that may very well be due to the fact that what women look like naked isn't something that would stand out in my mind.
