During an interview on a wrestling podcast, Alison Brie joked that GLOW's female nudity may have been included to gain male viewership for the female-driven series. "Betty Gilpin has sort of talked about that, the nudity, and our bodies, that exploitation has been like the trojan horse of the show where we're smuggling in real, intimate stories of these women's lives under the guise of, like, tits and ass and women wrestling!" Brie admitted that she thought the show's nudity was done well because it was realistic. "I will say I like how they used nudity on this show and on Orange Is The New Black. It's women again taking ownership of that nudity and not doing it in a way? You sort of catch people in nude moments or changing their clothes or whatever and it's not super, 'I look sexual and perfect in this moment of being naked!' It's more sort of, realistic nudity, which I like. A person's changing a shirt and you see her tits." See more
There are many moments throughout the show where the wrestlers break kayfabe (the traditional practice of continually maintaining the illusion that professional wrestling is a real competition) during matches. While kayfabe is only loosely followed by most modern wrestlers, it was still taken very seriously in the 1980s. See more
