The Spoony One on The Clones of Bruce Lee

The tendency of male, heterosexual characters in fiction to react with horror/disgust at the sight of a naked man. Especially common in teen comedies.

Often can be interpreted as a form of Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?, but can also happen when the character is all alone.

  • The Penny Arcade strip above, though to be fair that was actual gay sex, not just nudity.
