One of the earliest, most intriguing images that appeared in trailers for Blade Runner was that of Ryan Gosling walking toward an enormous head of a female figure, in the irradiated ruins of what appeared to be Las Vegas. If we could see its future Vegas in its heyday, it might look something like A. For David Haley Joel Osment an android boy preoccupied with winning back the love of his mother, Rouge City is full of maternal possibilities, as evidenced by the giant pair of splayed female legs that welcome him at the entrance.

Ask a man what the magic formula is for turning on a woman sexually and you're likely to be met with a heaving shrug. For years, scientists have been just as perplexed. And to a large degree, arousal has mystified even women themselves.
The belief that men are more likely to get turned on by sexual images than women may be something of a fantasy, according to a study suggesting brains respond to such images the same way regardless of biological sex. Writing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of SciencesNoori and his colleagues report how they came to their conclusions by analysing the results of 61 published studies involving adults of different biological sex and sexual orientation. The subjects were shown everyday images of people as well as erotic images while they lay inside a brain-scanning machine. Noori said all participants rated the sexual images as arousing before being scanned.
The topic of sexuality in art history can be approached in a variety of ways but perhaps the most valuable one in terms of a foundational topic for a survey art history lecture is the convention of female nudity in art. Tracing this convention through the history of art will enable you to cover issues of sexuality, gender, and power with your class. Additionally, you can spend time looking at the ways in which modern and contemporary artists have responded to the trope of female nudity in order to break with past conventions, and the ways in which feminist and queer artists and artists of color have developed new approaches to this tradition from a position of marginality.
After centuries of male dominance in the creation of art and female nudes within art, more females are entering the field and defying the previous portrayals of their bodies by men in order to empower themselves through the nude form. This is not to say that these alternatives replace the history of the nude, but they move it forward in a more positive feminist way. Women are so used to seeing themselves via the eyes of men, due to the fact that men have dominated the visual spectrum of the arts and media for so long.

This paper was written for my Renaissance to Modern art history class at Dawson College as a research paper, I slightly edited it to be shorter to make it less tedious to read. Nude and Naked are two very different things; being in the Nude simply means to be unclothed, while being Naked is to be vulnerable. From the sacred, innocent beauty of the Venus figure, to the working class Odalisque; woman have been portrayed in many lights from Renaissance to Mannerist times.
