This is an interesting diatribe from a great acting coach. Here’s a sample:

I cannot abide nudity on stage or screen.  Particularly stage.  Whenever I see it, I cringe.  It is not the character naked that I see, it is the actor abused.  It is rare that I have seen a moment of nudity that wasn’t solely for someone’s titillation.  Of course, I know, much is done in the name of art, but mainly, it’s bullshit.  Some writer/director/producer/douchebag wants to see some guy/girl/other naked or they think it will put bums on seats.  Oh but what about so and so in such and such?

The word is EXPLOITATION.  Exploitation in the name of art.
