While the Chernobyl and Challenger disasters dominated the nightly news, 1986 was actually a great year for the nightly nudes. In 1986 Bond babe Kim Basinger brought softcore back into the mainstream with 9 1/2 Weeks, centerfold queen Penny Baker made her (onscreen) nude debut, and the world was skintroduced to "la grande bouche", Beatrice Dalle, who stripped down for an astounding 10 nude scenes in Betty Blue. All in all, a happy nude year!

We've been spilling lots of internet ink on the French arthouse flick Betty Blue lately, thanks to its ELEVEN nude scenes, including one bush-only scene that prompted a new playlist. The Blu-ray of this skinstant classic was released last week, and our Skin wizards have given it a thorough skinspection, revealing some new nudity!
They've uncovered some neatly trimmed Kilroy bush, so called because it's peeping over the top of her underwear. This bit of muff fluff comes to you courtesy of French actress Clementine Celarie, who plays a breastfeeding mama:
Ain't technology grand?
Like the Gorgeted Puffleg, the endangered hummingbird only found in the cloud forests of Columbia's Serrania del Pinche, the bush-only nude scene is a rare and exotic beast. We had a brush with this elusive nude creature with this week's Blu-ray release of Betty Blue, and to celebrate we've got a new playlist of bush-only nude scenes!

In other nudes, we've got the insane imagery of Alejandro Jorodowsky in El Topo and The Holy Mountain, now on Blu-Ray.

The Limits of Control (2009)
NUDE: Paz de la Huerta (FFN, butt)
Helmed by cult director Jim Jarmusch, the crime drama The Limits of Control (2009) stars Isaach De Bankolé as a nameless loner.
