Michael Fassbender: "It's Just A Peen!"
Michael Fassbender (the "F" is silent) plays a fuck addict of Gerard Butler proportions in Shame and one of the opening scenes features him sprawled on top of a bed with a clear shot of his sleeping peen in a post-cum state. That scene earned the movie an NC-17 rating and Michael thinks the whole thing is ridiculous, because who hasn't seen a dick before? Put down your hand, Justin Bieber, you don't count, girl!
Michael explained his thoughts on the rating system's anti-cock policy to Huffington Post (via Towleroad) like this: "Half of us have a penis and the other half have probably seen one, and so why should it be more normal to, like, chop people's heads off and shoot people? Does that mean that that's more acceptable or closer to us as human beings?" Assbender is nothing but right. What humanity really needs from the world of cinema is less cut heads and more cut AND uncut heads if you know what I mean.
And I'm guessing that Michael Fassbender doesn't have a problem with putting his dick situation in front of the cameras, because he's a brave thespian and is attracted to emotionally damaged characters who have built walls around themselves and must expose their raw vulnerability to the audience by stripping away the layers that hide their pain. Or bitch just has a big dick.
Here's Assbender with Eli Roth and Rose McGowan at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night.

Straight males are to blame for that.
They don't like to compare themselves and they definitely don't want their wives/gfs to compare.

I absolutely agree. The whole anti-penis shit is unhealthy in so many ways.
1) It's homophobic. The only men who are squeamish about seeing another's dude's penis are homophobes. 2) It's prude. The only women who are squeamish about seeing a dude's penis are well- prudes who need to lighten up and get a grip.
3) It's a total double standard. Women can be but-ass naked from head to toe and oh, "that's classical beauty" but often it's for pointless reason and it's objectification.
A penis is just another part of the anatomy. America needs to grow up.

r8 I agree, but it also comes down to how actors feel about doing it, i.e. how it will affect their careers.
I think a lot of actors look down on it as beneath them, yet they expect the women to as a matter of course. Actors are also notoriously insecure.
The closet is also ridiculous for entertainers, but as long as the industry is invested in it, it won't disappear. Same with a ban on male full frontal.

The thing is, Michael Fassbender's penis is not just a penis. It is a god-sized super-appendage that strikes us all blind and dumb upon sight. My hair went gray at a screening of Shame. My friend turned into a pillar of salt.

Does he only date in Europe?
Anyway, even if what he and others say about the peen thing is true and men start showing more dickage in movies, what will actors with tiny dicks do?

The penis in non-sexual repose is OK for an R rating, but tumescence, either pre-, post- or active coital, is cause for the more restrictive rating.

r18, that's simply not true. The sight of a penis gets you a restricted rating or beyond. You should look at the guidelines.

Some of you are missing the point: why is it ok for an R-rated movie to feature people getting killed in graphic imagery, but a naked man or explicitly implied sexuality gets smacked with an NC-17? To me, such a value system is completely upside down and non-sensical
|by Anonymous||reply 24||11/19/2011|
R24, just playing devil's advocate here, the people getting killed in graphic imagery is fake, they're not really being dismembered, whereas a penis in this case is real. It's really his dick. Marky Mark's full frontal in BOOGIE NIGHTS was talked about but didn't earn the movie an NC-17 rating 'cause it wasn't a real penis.

Because in sexy scenes you are looking at real body parts -- tits, asses, pussy, cock...
But in violent movies it's just special effects. No real limbs or heads are harmed in the making of the production.

How movies like Saw or Hostil get R ratings is beyond me. Both movies feature the disembowelment of naked women.

Did anyone read that interview around the time Jane Eyre came out with Mia W? She said they kept having a problem with the horse that Fassbender was riding, cause every time he got on it, the horse would get a massive erection and they couldn't shoot. True story, she said that. I can't get that out of my mind now whenever he is mentioned.

No. What I'm saying is, the penis doesn't have to be semi-hard to get a higher rating. A flaccid penis makes the board lose their marbles as well.
|by Anonymous||reply 29||11/19/2011|
Male full frontal scenes are rated more harshly because you see actual genitalia. With women, all you see is bush. The last taboo in films is showing cunt.
Also, why are female breasts are given an R rating? They should be shown in G-rated films.

The underlying problem is that the Religious Right still has it's claws in almost everything - including the movie rating industry. And unfortunately, no one will stand up and challenge the way things are done.

Totally agree with R24- all murder and mahem and sex in films is "make believe". That craven violence is deemed less damaging than penises, breast, vaginas, asses etc is simply astounding... and very American. As a friend of mine loves to say "cover your shame".
Speaking of Shame- I know nothing of this film- something coming out soon, or did I miss it?

Would he have taken on the role if he wasn’t so well-endowed: “Well I didn’t really know… I mean I don’t have any reference points really, uh… I had a sister growing up so you know I wasn’t sure. I figured I was uh, average.”
What was going through his head when he realized he was going full frontal: “Well you know, it’s sort of um, do I need to sort of trim…I’m obviously a red-head…

He's right. It's especially hypocritical because full frontal nudity of women is very common.

But we don't see lips, R52. I think that's where the line is drawn at women's nudity. If a man hides his junk between his legs (like Ryan Reynolds did in some movie--Cash Cow?--I don't remember), then it's the same as a woman doing a "full frontal" but not showing the flaps.

Reminds me of Hugh Jackman in the locker room at NYSC when he did Boy from Oz. He was getting dressed when this man obviously began to stare at his dick.
He said "It' just a wanger, look down, you've got one too."

I saw the film (Shame) quite good and he is quite good in it. Yes he "shows", yes he is gorgeous. And he is perfectly right, nothing wrong with nudity. Rather there is something wrong with those who try to spin nudity into something dirty or evil or frightening. Such people usually think sex is also something dirty, evil or frightening and for some reason something children should be shielded from. Why?

So he didn't know he was hung until he was 34? Really? Snort. He'd never been in a locker room and his girlfriends hadn't been wide-eyed? He'd never seen any other male nudity on film? He was completely clueless? That's what he's peddling? BS Of course he knew he was hung and it had everything to do with his willingness to strut his stuff on film.
