You still get shirtless men which is the closest equivalent to breasts, surely, short of showing someone's ****?

Yes because we don't have breasts, hence my question, what else do you want that isn't a ****? Because that's not the same at all either.

I believe the general consensus of all sexualities and gender is that the non-erect and the majority of the erect male reproductive part is not very attractive at all, the shirtnell man is very evident across TV as that's what's seen as attractive, male reproductive organs are less so, this is similar to the female reproductive organ, they aren't the most beautiful pieces of anatomy, so to get more views they must limit male nudity and increase female nudity, not very gender equal but it just happens to be the case.

If you had a pair you would understand, also we are saying drop the entire nudity or make it equal at least.

For very obvious reasons - boobs are assets to a woman that are quite private to them it's very hard to explain if you are not a woman yourself. Also can we just be honest that many men and I am not saying all but many men walk around topless anyway mostly cos they like what they have.....

I see hundreds of shirtless men in panties on TV all the time, what are you talking about..?
It's all over.
I can't stop seeing it!
I don't really mind it either. The nudity between males and females is more or less equal. I see more men on TV dressed with fewer items of clothing then women, I don't see how the nudity could be made more equal. I don't really see bra-less women on TV?

Last weeks Baptiste had a scene of naked men in the sauna. Shown at 9pm. I suppose outside of porn you would see far more of a naked man’a parts than a lady who is naked where you mostly see hair and nothing else. So the actor is showing a lot more than a similar actress. It should be equal though in any particular scene in a film or show. If one person is naked then the other should be.

Breasts are aesthetically pleasing. Most penises aren't.

Who controls what appears in the media? maybe your answer is to be found in that question?

You get plenty of male nudity. Michael Fassbender, for one, is famous for bearing all in quite a few of his films.

And just the other day I was watching a series, MotherFatherSon, and Billy Howle had a completely naked frontal scene where he was telling the prostitute to look him up and down.

There's just something so horrific and despicable about male genitalia. No offence.
