    Now there's a website devoted to male nudity in films: Mr. Man

    It's the brainchild of Jim McBride, and a companion to Mr. Skin, which tracks female nudity
    'Game of Thrones' has scenes with Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen, r.) having sex with the town prostitute in which doesn't put his clothes back on right away. Instead, he chats awhile in the buff with full frontal exposure.
    After Theon Greyjoy has sex with a prostitute in an episode of "Game of Thrones," he doesn't put his clothes back on right away. Instead, he chats awhile, in the buff, his man parts on full display.
    This may have been shocking to TV audiences a generation ago, but now its common for viewers to unwittingly become part of the Members Only club.
    And naturally, there’s a website to deal with the changing times. Mr. Skin, the famed flesh site that has been chronicling female nudity since 1999, has launched Mr. Man, a companion site to help fans get their heaping helping of beefcake.

    It was obviously a long time coming."Traditionally movies were written, directed and owned by men, so the nudity was mostly female," says Jim McBride, the man behind Mr. Skin, which was created eight years before it served as a major plot point in “Knocked Up†(2007)."Now society has changed and it's a different era where it's totally acceptable for guys to do nude scenes."McBride credits shows like "True Blood" and "Shameless" with desensitizing the American viewer to the Full Monty — though female nudity remains far more ample than the male version.McBride estimates he has 700,000 female nude photographs and video clips archived on mrskin.com. By contrast mrman.com has only a few thousand — though “that number is growing all the time. ... No pun intended." (In a subtle sign of sexism, a Mr. Man annual membership is $96, compared to just $60 for unlimited peaks behind the green door on Mr. Skin.)It’s unclear if women will flock to the male version of the skin site, but woman-on-the-street interviews suggest a pent-up demand for more men — and more of them! — on screen.
    "When I'm watching a movie and I see nude scenes, just as a guy gets hot and bothered, I do too!†said Sheridian Doncan, 18, of Brooklyn. “I think, ‘Wow, that's a good looking man.’"And women say the younger generation is demanding equality in this filmic battle of the sexes.“Men just expect women to be nude in movies,†says Raquel Paulino, 24, of the Bronx. “But now teenage girls are going to a movie to see Robert Pattinson naked."Randy teens will likely be disappointed. Mr. Man gives the star of “Twilight†a two-star rating because he’s only shown “brief nudity†so far in his career.

    Indeed, lots of men are good looking of course, but hunkiness alone doesn’t earn a four-star rating on Mr. Man, which rates actors on how many times he has been au naturel and how much “naturel†is actually visible to viewers.Most male appearances outside briefs are brief — but that's why they invented the pause button. And Mr. Man.“Women would see a movie specifically for the nude scenes — if it was Brad Pitt,†jokes Janice Martinez, 47, of Staten Island. (Alas, Janice, Pitt’s Mr. Man rating is only three stars because he tends to only go shirtless.)
    Here are the top 10 nude stars, according to the site's careful calculations, with star ratings (out of four) that reflect what the actor was willing to do to get a rise out of audiences:

    1) Antonio Banderas

    Number of Skin-Baring Films: 14

    Most famous scene: Striping and getting in the bubble bath in "Baton Rouge."

    Overall Mr. Man rating: ****

    2) Ewan McGregor

    Number of Skin-Baring Films: 10

    Now society has changed and it's a different era where it's totally acceptable for guys to do nude scenes.
    Most famous scene: pulling off a condom in "Trainspotting."

    Overall Mr. Man rating: ****

    3) Viggo Mortensen

    Number of Skin-Baring Films: 8

    Most famous scene: Mortensen is naked in a bathhouse when he is attacked by two Russian mobsters in "Eastern Promises."

    Overall Mr. Man rating: ****

    4) Stephen Baldwin

    Number of Skin-Baring Films: 7

    Most famous scene: Getting frisky (and nude) with Lara Flynn Boyle and Josh Charles in "Threesome."

    Overall Mr. Man rating: **

    5) Javier Bardem
