Are female nude scenes put in movies to shock the female audience?

Is it to pray on natural female sensitivities and jealous nature about other naked girls. I was at the movie and a nude woman was showed. The female audience gasped loudly.


They are put there for one simple reason. To get and hold guys attentions. Guys really aren't into romantic interludes or character development. With them it's sex and violence. So the movie writers/producers realize this and if possible will try and populate movies with their sexiest actresses and try and work in as much skin as possible. You will note that the skin usually appears at the front of the movie, not the last. Case in point: In "Red Sparrow" Jennifer Lawrence had all of her nude scenes in the first 30 minutes of the movie. After that it was spy thriller throughout.
