In the not-so-distant past, TV shows depicted married couples — like Lucy and Ricky Ricardo — sleeping in separate twin beds to uphold the moral codes of the time along with censorship rules. Free from the FCC's indecency and profanity regulations, premium cable channels in the late 90s and early s started featuring programming that pushed the boundaries of what was once considered acceptable nudity on TV.

In fact, baring the bosom has coincided with Oscar gold for the likes of Holly Hunter and Halle Barry.

Nudity in film is the presentation in a film of at least one person who is nudepartially nude or wearing less clothing than contemporary norms in some societies consider " modest ". Since the development of the medium, inclusion in films of any form of sexuality has been controversial, and in the case of most nude scenes has had to be justified as being part of the story, in the concept of "artistically justifiable nudity". In some cases nudity is itself the object of a film or is used in the development of the character of the subject. In some cases, nudity has been criticized as "superfluous" or "gratuitous" to the plot, and some film producers have been accused of including nudity in a film to appeal to certain audiences.
