Catering the needs of heterosexual males.

The heterosexual male filmmakers often put stuff in the movies that heterosexual males enjoy. Cars, explosions, action, thrill, breasts, female nudity are some of the things heterosexual men wants to see.

Attracting more ticket sales.

Attracting more ticket sales.

One of the basic reasons why you usually see female nudity more in the movies is that it sells more tickets and women don't get offended. Men and women both perceive naked bodies differently. Men are visual creatures and get easily attracted to naked women. Women are indifferent towards other naked women, so they don't get offended.

The MPAA.

The MPAA.

The MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) decides the ratings of the movies. Showing nude men can risk classifying a movie as NC-17. The movie receiving an N-17 rating movie would lose a huge share of profit which it would have made if the teens would have watched it. The voluntary attempt in the form of the rating system is meant to keep the government from regulating the movie industry. Hence they tend to be ultra conservative.

A female body can be shown in a more delicate and artistic way in movies. But as for the male body, it has its limits. It doesn't mean male bodies are ugly; it's just that females bodies are more beautiful and pleasing.

Movies and TV shows (some of them) use female nudity as a shock factor or something to distract the audience from a crappy storyline. The fact is such kind of tricks do not enhance the storyline either.

Objectification of women.

Objectification of women has existed since a long time and history is evident of that. Early instances include strip tease shows, brothels, and pornographic art. While it still continues, only the form has changed. It's an issue often overlooked by Hollywood filmmakers.

The truth!

The truth!

While many Quora users were quite logical in their response, some of them saw the question as being flawed. They argued that the female private parts that are usually shown the most in the movies are breasts, which are not, in fact, sexual organs.

 Male nudity is difficult to achieve.

 Male nudity is difficult to achieve.

The Quora user, Nguyễn Huy Hải made a valid point. According to him, the female genitalia part that is shown is movies is usually covered with pubic hair, but male private parts cannot be covered in the same way. Hence male nudity is hard to achieve.

It is the other way around.

It is the other way around.

According to the Quora user, Michael Schertz, women's genitalia are not shown much in the movies. Far more flaccid penises are shown in movies than vulvae.
