"How I Met Your Mother" The Naked Man (TV Episode ) - IMDb
Has anybody out there tried the Naked Man? It seems like it would take some, uh, cojones to pull it off. How many people can just "ta-da! The sheer preposterousness of the Naked Man makes it an excellent metaphor for risk-taking, which is just what Ted needs to do to get back out there after the Stella debacle.
Then, once she leaves the room, you strip down naked, and wait. When she comes back, she laughs. She is so charmed by your confidence and bravado and sleeps with you. It has thus proven effective in two ways: plot-internally, as an element which allows the characters to persuade someone into or achieving something else via having intercourse, rendering sex a valid tool of and for seduction; and externally, as a catchy motif generating attention for the show as one of its signature schemes. Given the wide-spread acceptance, approval even of narrative elements and a sort of humor like this it really makes you wonder why people are shocked by the latest revelations on how women are and have been treated.
Not so much legendary as hella problematic. I love this show but the whole attitude towards women in general really angers me. Barney has absolutely no respect for women, constantly belittles them, lies to them and pits them against one another. What really salts my apples is how Robin, and especially Lily, slut-shame all the girls Ted and Barney date. It's just degrading and anti-feminist.
