Here’s a cheeky twist on our regular weekend binge-watch posts: these are the series rated 18+ that are most likely to feature some gratuitous shots of men’s derrières.
Did you know that Charlie Hunnam, who plays Jax in Sons of Anarchy, was slated to play Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey before dropping out? Fans were outraged – because they knew from the biker drama just how good the Australian looks clothed, and, um, less clothed.
Following a group of male escorts in Las Vegas, this reality show features male nudity in each and every episode. And that’s all you really have to know about it.
We bet you never expected to see a show with the word “Pope” in the title to have a place on this list. But when you watch The Young Pope you’ll realise that Jude Law’s Pius XIII is unlike every other pontiff that came before him. He’s American, for one thing. He smokes, he swears, he swills Coca-Cola and has very strong ideas on the direction the Catholic Church should be moving. And in the first seven minutes of the first episode we see his delightful rear end not once, but twice.
A show based on a Jane Austen novel set in Regency England – it doesn’t sound like the raciest of shows, does it? But there’s loads of male nudity, from the very first episode, in which three characters stride butt-naked across a beach.
Not surprising considering Andrew Davies of the BBC’s 1995 Pride and Prejudice adapted the novel for the screen – he’s the man to thank for the iconic shot of Colin Firth as Mr Darcy emerging dripping from the lake in a sheer white shirt.
The BBC series about a ruthless 1920s gang has never been averse to the odd bit of nudity, both male and female – there’s even something of an orgy in Season 3 – but the opening episode of Season 5 shocked fans far and wide. Even those in Birmingham, where the show is set. The latest season is on DStv Now and previous seasons are on Netflix.
