I tried to make a YKTTW
a few months ago, it's gone now, so I'll try again.
We all know that the Moral Guardians
of America loathe and fear the female nipple
. But there is one thing that is more vile, disgusting, and taboo in their eyes: A penis. In fact, it's not just prudish Moral Guardians
that get upset when one does make an appearance on the movie screen. Most writers (and directors, and producers, and movie-goers) are male
. And straight. And are somehow convinced that seeing a penis will turn them gay (they must not ever look in the mirror while nude then).
So, when one does er, pop up
in a film (and that is indeed a lame pun, since erect penises are not allowed in mainstream films), whether it be Fan Service
, Fan Disservice
, or just there, expect it to be the only thing anyone talks about
In Europe, they don't make a real big deal about nudity in general, so there are a lot more examples from their films.
- Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen. There was a lot of controversy about this. It's pretty much all non-fans know about the film, in fact.
- Bruno had a talking penis. Or So I Heard... and had the displeasure of seeing an animated gif of. D:
- Robin Williams in The Fisher King.
- Would Bart Simpson in The Simpsons Movie count?
- According to Wikipedia, Kinsey was the first film permitted to show uncensored genitalia in Japan. And Liam Neeson fangirls (and some fanboys) did rejoice.
- Color of Night had Bruce Willis's penis.
- Walk Hard does this for laughs.
- Forgetting Sarah Marshall has Jason Segel doing two full-frontal scenes for laughs.
- Boogie Nights with a fake penis.
- Arnold Schwartzenager in the first Terminator film, at least in one of the DVD releases.
- Jonah Falcon, in several documentaries.
- When Daniel Radcliffe starred in Equus, there were a million jokes about Harry Potter showing his "wand".
- Gokuu's penis was censored out of Dragonball for the American release.
- In South Park Cartman's naked penis was far more important than the fact that they threw a shrunken into Butters' eye.
- Channel Four's notorious one-off gameshow Naked Jungle was just that... a jungle adventure game where all the contestants and the presenter were nude, with no censorship.
- Shin Chan (although recent episodes pixellate his penis).
- The boys in Doraemon have this hapen to them lots of times. Lots.
- Non-film: Ian Mac Kellen's recent run as King Lear had him going nude as a part of Lear's madness
- The Venture Brothers had Dr. Venture having a flashback to seeing his father's giant penis.
...it later got Henry Killinger's face on the end of it and it Talked to Rusty.
Feel free to expand
... I mean add to this.
