For the 24th consecutive year, the readers of Uncle Scoopy's Fun House
and related sites have chosen their favorite nude
The voting took place in stages.
In stage one, nominations
from all readers of Other Crap for a
full month. That list also includes links to sample
images from each nominee.
In stage two, all
voters were allowed to rank all nominees from top to
, and a seeded list of finalists was created
from the results.
In stage three, voters were asked to name one and only
one of the choices as their selection for the top nude
performance of the year. The numerical results of the
balloting can be found here
In a way, the poll represented a reversal of current
trends, in that the list was not dominated by TV or
streaming series. Six of the top eight scenes took place

Except for Sydney Sweeney, who continues to be our
flavor of the day, the list is dominated by actresses
who have not appeared on the lists in previous years.
The only other repeater from 2021 is Virginie Efira, who
is now the reigning queen of full-frontal nudity.
The poll doesn't necessarily reflect the quality of the

representative of the dozens of great scenes turned out
by the Philippines in 2022; (3) Miracle Watts in
P-Valley for just plain hot sex; (4) Emma Corrin in Lady
Chatterley's Lover, for beauty, prestigious
presentation, and the total running time of nudity; (5).

One has to give a special shout-out to Emma Thompson, a
great and beloved talent for many decades, who
courageously stripped stark naked, undaunted by her age
or her less-then-perfect shape.

watched them grow up in family-friendly entertainment.
They were the ones we really wanted to see naked.
