Michiel Huisman on Game of Thrones had a scene where we see his backside. In a recent article, his wife said they were at a PTA meeting for their daughter’s school. One of the fathers there was a GoT fan and said to him, “By the way, great ass!” In the article his wife said, “Okay…” and laughed. Because it is a little weird when a stranger comments on your backside. So it happens elsewhere, and it’s not just women who are doing it. Male nudity on television is a relatively new thing. We’re seeing more of it (amen!) and it’s a topic of conversation. What is acceptable to say about it will get sorted out along the way.
