Seeing a naked man in cinema is like a one-night stand. Sure, it’s often the most honest moment you’ll share with him in the time you watch his character’s story unfold. But how well did you really get to know him?
However, seeing a man naked in series television often offers a richer experience. In many cases, you’ve gotten to know him, his world, what he loves, what he fears. And then suddenly you’re sharing a whole new level of intimacy. He might be at his sexiest or his most vulnerable. His towel could have slipped on the way from the shower or he might have gotten hilariously locked out of his hotel room. So we’ve gathered 15 series where you can sneak a peek. It might be from the front. It might be from the back. Sometimes it’s in nearly every episode, and sometimes it is rare, indeed. But when it shows up, you’ll be glad you tuned in.
