Clothed female, naked (or nude) male (on the internet sometimes abbreviated to CFNM) is a genre of erotica featuring one or more nude men and one or more clothed women. It is sometimes described as a sexual fantasy, by women or men, depicting an exhibitionist or physique worship scenario. One-sided male nudity can also arise when a male disrobes for the sexual pleasure of a woman or other women, such as in a BDSM or other sexual activity, as an indication of sexual submission, or as part of a male striptease. The objective of this type of scenario is that the male is denied the sexual pleasure of seeing the women in the same state of undress, and is not in a position to dominate the scene.
One-sided male nudity is also considered by some to be a form of sexual objectification of men or as a role reversal, whereby the male assumes a subservient sex role. Some people regard such depictions to be pornography.
Portrayal of male nudity 
In classical antiquity, the portrayal of nude male form in art (including the exposure of genitals) was considered to be more acceptable than that of the naked female form. By the renaissance, this view had reversed. For example, in Titian's treatment of Perseus and Andromeda in mid-1550s, however, it is Andromeda who is nude - save for the barest wisp of fabric - while Perseus is clothed in armour.
Depictions of nudity were acceptable to the 19th-century French salon culture if the setting was clearly "classical", depicting characters in a culture where nudity was commonplace, as in Combat de coqs (1847) by Jean-Léon Gérôme.
Sexual objectification of men by women 
Feminist authors Christina Hoff Sommers and Naomi Wolf have written that women's sexual liberation has led many women to a role reversal, whereby they view men as sex objects, in a manner similar to what they criticize in men's treatment of women.
CFNM fantasy and humiliation/punishment 
Unlike CMNF, CFNM is not divided into categories, such as nice CFNM and hard CFNM. Male participants receive pleasure from the CFNM experience for a number of reasons. Many males enjoy being completely nude around females and do not tend to be disappointed that the females are fully clothed, while experiencing the sexual pleasure given by females, including masturbation.
Some male participants, however, often feel humiliated during the experience. Like the females in hard CMNF, their focus is on the embarrassment or humiliation they experience in the situation.
CFNM in film 
In Porky's Revenge (1985) has a scene in which the boys' basketball team think that they are going to have an orgy with the cheerleaders. Using duplicate swimming costumes the girls subsequently trick the boys into stripping naked before being filmed in the swimming pool.
In 100 Girls (2000), Arlene (Katherine Heigl) challenges Matthew (Jonathan Tucker) to a game of table football, where the loser of each goal has to remove one article of clothing. Matthew eventually loses to the degree where he is naked whilst the girls are still fully clothed.
