Abstract

The desire to accumulate material resources and to have good life-chance is rooted deeply in the sensibilities of human society. Every individual strives to ensure that he meets not only his essential needs of today and future but also accumulate well enough to gain social standing and be able to bequeath wealthy heritage to his children. This tendency predisposes man to looking for economic means with all intensity. And, whenever profit propensity is discovered in any endeavour or vocation, entrepreneurs (or capitalists) mobilize resources – financial, technical, human etc in that direction. This work, relying largely on extant literature which highlights the overarching influence of the mass media on society, media contents, profit goal of media investors and audience response, attempts to situate the roles nudity plays within the broad spectrum of media arts. The focus is on how media moguls profiteer from explicit media content involving the private parts of women and the aftermath connected with that.
