Can't movies keep it real?

It’s bad enough that there seems to be less actual nudity in mainstream movies these days. However, it is time to point out how the movie companies taking steps to practically avoid nudity has an impact on how believable the film is.

I saw another example over the weekend when I went to see “Social Networking”. (I’m not going to spoil anything about the plot.) There is one scene in which one of the key male characters has slept with and spent the night with a college babe, which starts with the 2 of them in her bed in the early morning.

The babe has a sweat shirt on, revealing a bra strap in one shot, and has what I call full panties on. (The kind that are more like short shorts.) The dialogue reveals to the audience that the babe slept with the guy, but doesn’t remember having done so until he explains the situation.

Sorry, but if we are supposed to believe the events the male character described, then why on earth would the babe be wearing a sweat shirt and full panties? If the babe really had blacked out, wouldn’t she remember enough to know why she would have put on a sweat shirt, let alone bra and full panties? Even the panties she has on are not even close to believable. As a total creep spending time on school campuses over the years and seeing plenty of panties (and whatever else is or isn’t worn) that college babes wear, you can’t convince me that a babe of her caliber would wear anything more than a thong or much more revealing panties than the babe in the movie was wearing. If she really wore that type of underwear, she wouldn’t have been in that situation to sleep with the male in the first place.

In the next part of the scene, the babe is supposedly continuing the conversation and walking toward the shower, seen topless from behind. We do get to briefly see the side of a boob, but no nipple. However, in that shot, we don’t get to see her face (not that I was looking at the face!). Thus, it could very well have been a body double so that the actress playing the college babe didn’t have to show even the slightest boobie.

Some of you probably think I’m being a total creep in commenting about this. But whether you dig the nudity (when there is some) or not, my point is that it made the film less believable. That scene was NOT how that babe should have been presented. She should have been at the very least topless if not totally nude.

Think about it. It’s not like the guy who slept with her would make sure she has underwear on, let alone a sweatshirt over a bra, when she fell asleep in his arms after supposedly having sex. Or, if the guy did, it goes against his character in the movie.

There is a separate scene with a drug bust, and they show a powder drug being taken off of another babe’s stomach. For some reason, she is still wearing a bra. Like we are supposed to believe she wouldn’t be topless if not completely naked by that time? Worse yet, one of the male police officers in the raid instructs her to “Cover up!” while she throws a shirt on over her bra. Us movie viewers are intelligent enough to know that she already was “covered” and that a police officer would only react like that if the babe was topless.

This was really because the film maker didn’t want the nudity, and I know that. To me, it tells me the film maker wasn’t interested in making the movie plot believable, and Social Networking is supposedly based on a true story. If they couldn’t get one scene to establish one of the primary characters right, then how do we know how thorough the other scenes are?

In a way, this is even worse than TV shows and some movie scenes where the wife is in bed with her husband, yet very openly keeps the sheets up over her boobies as if he can’t see them. Those scenes detract from the story’s credibility as well, but even a guy like me understands that they can’t show the good stuff on TV shows.

I can understand that some women oppose nudity in the movies when it has little or nothing to do with the plot, even though most men enjoy it. Yet, in Social Networking, those are two separate scenes in which nudity was actually necessary to the scenes, and it was covered up. True, this was especially disappointing to me because I love seeing college aged babes naked as much if not more than any other age group. But this movie is a lot about college students, and this form of censoring or editing made it less realistic.

Come on, guys. We deserve better for what it costs to see a movie these days. Or at least “real”.

Total Creep in control of the situation

Cliff C. of PA writes:

“I’m not sure I fully believe that you maintain your control every time and have not approached or let the (babe) know what you saw. I would love to know, if you really do, how you do that. Yesterday afternoon I was blessed to be walking past a hot young mom who was tending to her toddler in a stroller. Taking your expert advice, I timed walking by just as she was leaning very forward, and as luck had it there was no bra, and I saw nipples. I must admit I was so pleased that I said “Nice view” after I passed by. She looked up and said “damn you” or something to that effect. I kept on walking and nothing further came of it. She wasn’t about to leave her kid. I am sorry I did that, and know it was wrong to tell her, but I couldn’t help it. How do you really do that?”

Well, Cliff, it’s probably to your surprise, but I will address this matter. Sure, there are times it is very tempting to get out of control over some totally hot babe letting it show. Nice job following my advice, until you got your great view and then spoiled the moment. You (and others) need to stay in control and act like you didn’t see a thing, no matter how challenging. Your action yesterday will ruin it for other guys. There are so few babes, compared with years past, who still go out braless. I would bet you any amount that the one you did this to will never leave home without a bra on again. We can’t afford to “lose” any more.

You need to maintain your composure during and after seeing something like you did, in this case some great boobage. Had you kept quiet like you should have, this babe would be out there again today without a bra and no clue that guys can see all she has when she cares for the kid. That is what inspires me. It’s not only keeping from being nabbed, busted, or arrested (or even beaten if her significant other is near), it is keeping more opportunities open. I am as obsessed as any other guy with seeing as many babes as I possibly can naked or as close to it as possible, even the same ones over and over if possible. If they were to find out from me, I would not only fear trouble from authorities, but it would reduce the field of possibilities. Those are both serious enough to keep me quiet. It takes training, but unless you don’t care to continue checking out the babes (and I can’t imagine that), you need to work at it.

Maintaining composure also applies even when the babe does know. You might go back to my book or audio book (“ Total Creep – A Guy’s Guide “) and re-read the chapter “They Know I Saw”. It describes several true incidents, including one where the babe and her guy both knew I saw a full boob “by accident”. I maintained a straight face, leaving them a bit uncertain. Any babe would expect a guy who “really” saw her boob in public to be smiling, thanking her, or whatever. You can’t do that.

I will admit there have been times over the years I have been very tempted and have come close to making a mistake. I truly do understand the temptation, and even your reaction yesterday. These times are not covered in my book (at least my first one). Fortunately, I was able to talk myself out of it in time. One such “near incident” was several years ago in a Midwest city. I was getting ready to leave the apartment I was renting at the time, but noticed the light was on, and drapes open, in the apartment of a babe I would check out who lived across the street from me. I grabbed the binoculars and there she was carrying clothes while walking in to the room. She put them down on the chair, and it turned out she was stark naked. She then picked up her jeans and pulled them up, following that by putting on just a top. Next, she went and put on her jacket, grabbed her purse, and headed out toward the front door.

The jeans were dark blue, and the top she put on was not open or low cut, and not even see-through. However, this meant that she was going out with absolutely NO underwear on whatsoever. That is my “weakness” when it comes to checking out the babes. To me there is nothing that excites me as much as a babe out in public with no underwear on.

Since I was also about to leave, and knew her parking space, I actually did grab my keys and went downstairs, feeling totally excited about what I just saw and what I knew. I got out the door and actually took a few steps toward her parking space, thinking I would say something like “Oh wow, no underwear!!” to her. Fortunately, the voice of reason in my head told me, “If I do this, I would lose the opportunity to see her naked again, and she could tell her neighbors and even people in my building. I can’t let that happen.” Had I done so, she would have known that I was spying on her. Her clothes were not revealing, and her having a jacket on would have prevented me from seeing bouncing boobies.

Along with that, I will admit that I once got away with a true peeping tom incident (over 30 years ago), convincing myself right afterward that it would be a one-time thing and not worth risking spying and everything else I do in pursuit of seeing babes naked. Even with my anxiety that night, I was extremely careful about not leaving a trace. There was a babe living alone in a first floor apartment that I could not see into from where I was living at the time. One night after dark I (really was) walking back from a local errand, and noticed from the sidewalk that her bathroom light was on, and that her bedroom blinds were open slightly and pointed down. Even though there was a lawn, there was a concrete slab behind the bushes under her window.

I looked around and there was no one else walking on either side of the street, and no cars coming. Just as I was up near the bushes, I saw her bathroom light go dark. I was on that concrete slab, boosted up on her window ledge, and was hanging high enough to see into the bottom part of the blinds. Success – she was sitting on her bed with panties on but topless and was toweling off her hair. I enjoyed the boobs view for maybe 10 seconds, then lowered myself to the ground and snuck away, making sure there were no footprints, and that there was still no one around. (If someone was nearby I could have stayed behind the bushes until they passed.)

That was more than 30 years ago, and I never did that again, no matter how tempting it gets. I think of it as “quantity vs. quality”. No matter how hot a babe is, it isn’t worth giving up seeing hundreds more babes naked for one moment.

So to address your question, yes, I have been tempted. And I have done wrong. But I’m still doing what I do, and by the methods that I know will work safely if done properly. Please keep this in mind on your walk today, OK?

Caught in the act

Being a total creep is one thing, but maintaining control is another. Here is a news story about a guy who got nailed for trying to check out a babe while she showered in a dorm room:

I'll bet the guy didn't know that she is the daughter of a police officer. But her seeing enough of the guy's clothes to be able to track him down is definitely the fault of the guy. The news story doesn't say whether or not he saw her naked, nor does it indicate if this was a "women only" floor or portion of the dorm. There are instances where women's bathrooms and showers are in or near areas where guys could have access. In that event, guys should be able to make a nice sighting appear to be accidental.

There are usually other opportunities to see at least partial nudity on campus without having to take the risks this guy in the story did.

Addressing spying on the babes

Guys, this news story confirms my previous comments about not using cameras (whether video cam, cell phone, digital, etc.) when checking out babes. The guy in this crime in Minnesota was seen video taping, and if he is or was caught there would be evidence of his actions.

However, more significant to this story, in my opinion, is that the reporter gives the block on which this guy was doing his spying.

With the block being listed, and the photo of the hottie at the top of the story, this also gives total creep guys a more specific idea of where some college babes are. The reporter should have left the street name out of the mix.

But again, had the guy the authorities are looking for chose to use a camera. Otherwise, he could have appeared to be calmly walking down the street without incident. Let's hope they catch him!

Is it an invasion of privacy or not?

It’s either invasion of privacy or it isn’t. And I find myself on both sides of the discussion, even though I just realized it. Since I started blogging and responding to questions regarding my “Total Creep – A Guy’s Guide” book, I have, understandably, heard from some women who would prefer that I am never heard from again. I get it. Women do not appreciate that I openly detail my having spied on babes at home during private moments with binoculars from numerous places I lived and stayed at over the years. Kind of a long distance peeping tom, according to some.

My “argument” to the women who complain is that, while not the most moral of conduct, I am not putting any of the babes I check out at risk in any way. I don’t stand by a window, set foot on their private property, or try to be seen, like some creeps do and are justifiably arrested for. The babes I see don’t know that I saw what I saw. It’s not my fault that they didn’t close the blinds or curtains and I could watch a babe undress, take a shower, or walk around with little or nothing on in private. They don’t know they were being seen, and in my opinion, that means no harm done, even though it could technically be considered an invasion of privacy.

Yet, more than ever, my own privacy gets invaded practically every day. I’m getting really tired of being asked for my personal phone number, e-mail address, zip code, and other such information in order to make a simple consumer purchase. It’s the book store, the shoe store, the department store, the haircut place, and the list goes on.

If I were a betting man I’d bet you that many of the same women who dislike my very being for “invasion of privacy” by spying on babes in private moments are some of the ones who have no problem asking customers for personal information as a routine part of their jobs, and feel no guilt or shame.

Add to all of this the information age we are in, and the technology that goes with it. How can babes be concerned about a guy watching them walk topless in a private moment without knowing it when they are also subjected to revealing personal information on a daily basis?

What made me realize this? Last night I had another wonderful opportunity to watch a cute babe (who appears to be a local college student based on her young look and the shirts and sweaters she wears) sitting at her table using her laptop. Based on her changing facial expressions and how she appeared to be typing something every few seconds, I’m guessing she was either on Facebook or IM’ing her significant other. It didn’t matter to me what she was doing, actually. She put her leg up on the chair to relax, and was wearing a short night shirt with NO panties. I think she was communicating with her sig other because she was touching herself you-know-where every once in a while.

During this time, she had no idea that a man (me) was able to get the full view of her natural state. I was also in the privacy of my home, and in no way a physical threat to her, was not trespassing, and not distracting anyone else from doing anything. I don’t care what she was doing on the computer or who she was communicating with. Yet, chances are she was on that computer sharing her private details and information with the outside world.

Heck, she might have spent her time at work earlier in the day capturing personal information which should remain private from customers.

By the way, I may be a total creep, but I am an honest one. Over the years, I have been able to note whether or not a babe is at home (car parked or not), seen where valuables are placed, and tracked schedules to know when “she” would be most likely to come home. There was one incident where a babe’s front door to her apartment came open and she didn’t know it, and then she proceeded to take a shower. (I could have burglarized the place, but didn’t – so I wouldn’t miss her coming out of the shower.) I possibly could have witnessed a robbery, and then had the dilemma of admitting I was spying OR keeping quiet about it. Therefore, I won’t even use the “private” information I gather via my binoculars.

So, I ask you. Who is really invading whose privacy?

ESPN producer arrested as peeping tom

The guy has ruined his own life and he probably didn't have to. It makes it tougher for us total creep guys who enjoy this sort of thing but in a more private and less intimidating manner.

He never should have taken a step stool by the babe's window. A definite no-no. Nor do you do what he was doing in public, however exciting his view was. Yikes.

The guy lives in the same complex. Not sure whether or not he had a view into her unit from his using binoculars or a zoom lens, but obviously that would have been the way to go.

Guys don't have to put themselves at heavy risk to check out the babes.
