A little over eight years ago, Jason Segel showed his penis for a fleeting moment in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and set the bar for going-for-it male nudity. Spoiler alert from here on forward. In the movie Samberg plays Conner, the titular pop star, who made a name for himself after breaking up the band he got his start in, called the Style Boyz.
The year-old comedian is presented in his full-frontal glory over the course of a cringe-worthy breakup scene that involves Segel naked, dripping wet and sobbing like a 6-foot-4 baby. At SXSW as the Austin, Texas, film fest is knownevery time Segel was shown au naturel, the totality of his package nearly brought the house down with laughter. Still, the actor-writer contemplated inequalities between male and female film nudity before putting his family jewels on display.
Sadly Freaks only ran one season, but Jason went on to strut his round tush in our favorite comedy Knocked Upalong with fellow freaks Seth Rogan and James Franco. Luckily it wouldn't be his only foray into flashing flesh. A year later not only did Jason give us a look at his slim jim, sporting some soft wood in Forgetting Sarah Marshalbut he also wrote the skintacular film himself.
Poor Mrs. Jason Segel confessed in a recent interview that his mother, Jillian Jordanwas less-than-pleased with her son's full-frontal nudity scene in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Part of the reason, he told Vanity Fairwas because she had no clue it was coming. After the initial shock had subsided, his mom went on to send a mass email to family members, giving them fair warning about the scene.
A gratuitous list of the most memorable moments of male nudity. When it is appears on screen, the penis is a statement. It's a fleshy exclamation point — the answer to a question most dare not ask.

These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Get it?! Anyway, here we go. Future usages of the male full frontal would not be as couth. Chow, leapt naked, out of the trunk of a car right into our hearts.
If you didn't get enough of Jason Segel 's manhood in Forgetting Sarah Marshallyou're in luck because Segel apparently drops his pants in the upcoming romantic comedy, The Five-Year Engagement Segel and Emily Blunt star in the flick out April 27 as a couple who has been engaged for—you guessed it—five years.
From Miss USA's topless photo scandal to "True Blood's" steamy sex scenes, we certainly see plenty of naked people these days. But in popular culture, and movies in particular, there's been a rather conspicuous double standard. Sure, boobs and vaginas are great, but where, egalitarians might ask, are all the penises?
