What’s the Problem with Nudity?

[Thanks to Anthony]
What’s the Problem with Nudity?, interesting hour-long BBC documentary.
(If there are problems with the video, try it on YouTube.)

It would be interesting to do a study on male body hair. A lot of chicks like a studly dude with the hairy chest, but backhair is almost universally a turnoff. I wonder why.

interesting documentary!

what would be interesting to see how the social norms on nudity differ from country to country. for instance, here in Germany and in Switzerland (and I suppose in Denmark, Netherlands too) there is lots of public nudity, and nobody really cares about it. E.g. public saunas are usually mixed sex and nude, whereas in the UK you wear swim suits etc.

It's true that Denmark for example is more laid back about it than most countries. But it's still a bit mixed. I'm Danish, and I have met Danes, even ones younger than myself, who got upset if somebody got topless on TV or such.
