Kevin Bacon wants to see wiener. Balls, butts, the whole nine yards. In a recent video, Bacon hilariously demands more male nudity in films and television, but he just may have a point. It’s true that you can catch more than a glimpse of boobs or lady tush in a single episode of Game of Thrones or True Blood, but you’ll rarely - if ever - see more than a shirtless man. What gives?
