20 Classic Nude Scenes In '80s Teen Movie History

List Rules
Vote up the hottest scenes.

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 scenes where your favorite stars got naked, ranked by you for hotness. You will also find some old shower scenes here. 

I described the movies, the context of the 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 at Ridgemont High, to lesser-known gems like Hardbodies and Malibu Express, to even scenes from actually-good movies like Sixteen Candles, these are the greatest scenes where characters shed their clothes in '80s teen comedy history. 


  • Fast Times At Ridgemont High
    Video: YouTube

    I don't have to tell you what this movie is about (it's easily one of the best stoner movies of all time) and you know exactly what scene I'm talking about. If you don't, then here it is. That's Phoebe Cates.

    She married to Kevin Klein, looks like this now, and is one of the hottest, if not the hottest girl the '80s had to offer. And she took her clothes off every chance she got, all over the place, non-stop. The '80s were a great place to live because everything was exactly ten million times cheesier since self-awareness hadn't been invented yet.

    And, to repeat, Phoebe Cates in her teens/20s was one of the greatest parts of the '80s. She tops every one of these lists and with great reason. The mix of innocence and mischief in her eyes in every scene just steals the entire movie every time.

    Porky's
    Video: YouTube

    The Movie
    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 skin 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 Scene
    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 attractive people on the other end.

    Fun times ensue and a lot of teenagers and kids even younger than that in the '80s saw their first entire human body 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 scene 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 an excuse for showing naked girls 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 scene and also because of another scene starring a young Kim Cattrall, who only gets hotter as she gets older.

    This movie was largely an adult comedy 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.

    Mischief
    Video: YouTube

    The Movie
    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.

    The Scene
    A young Kelly Preston is in lace, while the guy slowly undresses her. He takes off her bra, and you can seriously hear a football stadium full of dudes just cheering. She pulls off her undergarments and boom, Kelly Preston in all her glory, who then lies down and makes out with the guy for a few minutes. Then, they do it, 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.

    Private School
    Video: YouTube

    The Movie
    Phoebe Cates tries to score a really WASPy rich dude while this one girl teases everyone in the movie. Shower scenes happen.

    The Scene(s) 
    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 Betsy Russell who spends the whole time teasing dudes. She also rides a horse without a shirt on, while older women give her disapproving looks.

    Blame It On Rio

    Blame It On Rio
    Video: YouTube

    The Movie
    Blame It On Rio is about two really horrible guys who bring their insanely hot daughters (a young Demi Moore and Michelle Johnson) on a vacation to Rio de Janeiro with them. After they catch their daughters playing without clothes on in the ocean, one dad gets super mad and the other plays with them, ends up banging his friend's daughter –which is okay, because it turns out his friend was banging his wife the whole time. Demi Moore kind of stays out of the whole thing. The hot girl (Michelle Johnson) tries to end her own life by taking too much birth control pills (which you can't even do) and everyone lives happily ever after.

    The Scene
    A young Michelle Johnson and a 22-year-old Demi Moore play on a beach without tops and are then caught by their dads, but refuse to put their clothes back on. Whoever wrote this has some weird, awesome problems.

  • Revenge Of The Nerds
    Video: YouTube

    The Movie
    If there's one thing '80s movies taught kids, it's that if you invade a girl's privacy or sneak a peak of her squishy parts while she isn't looking, it is perfectly okay if you're with your friends. Squishy parts. Remember that one. It's yours now.

    So Revenge of the Nerds, for those of you who were born after most of the actors' careers had taken a nosedive, is a movie that takes place in a time in which kids were stratified: you were either a "jock" or a "nerd" or part of about maybe three or four other groups and that is who you hung out with every day. The end. 

    Nerds looked like your grandpa when he tried to dress up nice and jocks hated the idea of being "smart." Nobody was happy. In the movie, the outcasts known as "nerds" take revenge on their jock bullies and actually win over the hearts and minds of young women. The idea of the whole thing was so ridiculous at the time that it was kind of a high concept movie when it came out.

    The Scene
    Anyway, there's a scene where the nerds sneak into the dorms inhabited by some pretty ladies well "out of their league" by society's standards and proceeded to set up hidden cameras to see them change, which is insanely not okay and horrible by today's standards.
