If there's anything that the '80s gave us, it was gratuitous nudity in just about every single teen comedy that came out. In honor of that tradition, here are the best '80s teen comedy nude scenes of all time, ranked by you for hotness. You might also be interested in movies with unexpected nude scenes and a list of actors who have done full frontal.
I described the movies, the context of the nude scenes, and then linked you out to the scenes when possible (although you can totally just Google all of them). From Phoebe Cates in Fast Times, to lesser-known gems like Hardbodies and Malibu Express, to even scenes from actually-good movies like Sixteen Candles, these are the greatest nude scenes in '80s teen comedy history. Legendary naked movie scenes!
Porky's is about a group of guys in the '50s who want to lose their virginities in a time in which guys not only admitted that they were virgins, but tried to fix that problem "together."
There's a place called Porky's, though, where a lot of the hot girls hang out and where a lot of the main characters are terrorized by the mean, fat, pig-looking owner named, you guessed it, Porky. As these guys awkwardly try and come up with plans to "get laid", you get a pretty heavy smattering of classic, unnecessary, gratuitous '80s nudity in between seemingly interminable expository scenes. So, of course, you rewind the tape until your parents know exactly what you're doing. There's no reason someone should be rewinding and playing a tape that often and that quickly unless they're trying to solve the mystery of the Kennedy assassination.
The infamous Porky's shower scene features a bunch of guys finding a hole that leads to the girls' locker room, and kind of how you hope for every time there's a hole in a wall of any bathroom, there were actually sexually attractive people on the other end.
Full frontal and backal (which yes, is a word, according to me) nudity ensues and a lot of teenagers and kids even younger than that in the '80s saw their first entire human boob and/or group of women showering together. Many more would follow for all of us.
The notable part of this scene is that it was the first gratuitous nudity most people had seen in a really popular comedy (which, as a film, dragged on for way too long wasn't even very funny). The whole thing was really just a vehicle for nudity and for a bunch of weird dads to take their sons to see a movie clearly intended for adults. This movie is at all memorable mostly because of that weirdly rapey iconic nude scene and also because of the rest of its awesome, not-as-rapey nude scenes (including one starring a young Kim Cattrall, who only gets hotter as she gets older).
This movie was largely nudity masked in "fun", which was an awesome discovery for anyone who saw it and had the patience to deal with its pace. It's kind of like when you pour alcohol inside a juice box or a Vitamin water and bring it into your kids' plays or Disneyland or something. All of you do this.

A 1%er (Dan Aykroyd) trades places with a homeless guy (Eddie Murphy) trade places because two rich old guys make a bet about how it will turn out. Hilarity ensues, and Jamie Lee Curtis takes her top off.
Jamie Lee Curtis plays a prostitute who seems smarter than any other woman in the movie. She lets Dan Aykroyd stay at her place in exchange for, you guessed it, money once he's rich again. The scene where she's changing and casually walks around topless showed everyone that at some point, Jamie Lee Curtis was super hot. Even with that hair.

Phoebe Cates tries to score a really WASPy rich dude while this one girl teases everyone in the movie. Shower scenes happen.
Some more dudes spy on a girl when she thinks she's safe and take pictures with the flash turned off. They use a polaroid, which was common then, but today would be a hipster thing to do. She notices them in the mirror and decides to give them a show until they pull her towel off. Weirdly, nobody gets arrested and the girls aren't even super freaked out or anything, but actually kind of happy about it for some reason. Phoebe Cates is in her underwear throughout.
The female lead in the movie is former Betsy Russell who spends the whole time teasing dudes. She also rides a horse topless while older women shoot her disapproving looks. People then go nuts as there are apparently, once again, no nudity laws in public in the 80s.

This movie has all of the tropes of a teen comedy, but happens to center around a clumsy guy trying to bang a young Kelly Preston, so pretty much everyone's on board from the beginning. Because a young Kelly Preston is stupid hot. Like, stupid hot.
A young Kelly Preston is in lace lingerie ('80s lingerie is so weird) while the guy slowly undresses her. He takes off her bra, and you can seriously hear a football stadium full of dudes just cheering their asses off. She pulls off her underwear and boom, full frontal Kelly Preston, who then lies down and makes out with the guy for a few minutes. They have sex and it's awesome. He promises to "pull out", then doesn't; but whatever, it's the '80s so it wasn't a big deal, if the rest of this list has taught us all anything.
Watch it here.
