Naked Attraction, Ch4 : Okay ....

Recommended Posts

So, yep, this is well after the watershed 'n' all, but wtf?

In case you aren't familiar with the format, here's the description:

"Two more singletons choose a date from a selection of six naked people, who will be revealed to them one body part at a time. Wolverhampton DJ Darryl hopes stripping everything back will help him meet his ideal partner, while former ballet dancer Ania, from Preston, is tired of investing valuable time on people only to be disappointed when the clothes come off and has decided that being upfront is the key to relationship success. Anna Richardson hosts"

It's all legitimised by the odd Richardson sex-stats aside, but this is basically blind-date in reverse. Full frontals before we see faces, faces before we hear voices. Voices before any kind of interaction.

I'm still kinda gob-smacked. Too much to begin questioning whether this is valid material for a mainstream network. I think that's what's interfering with my cognitive judgements. At least it would be if I could only rid my mind of one overriding question: could I have remained limp when Ania stripped off (imho a damn cute bod)??? :unsure:

Well C4 maybe is going back to it's roots. Broadcasting outrageous content. Remember when we just had 4 channels?

It looks pedestrian from the clips on youtube.

Perhaps they should do a try before you date, with paper bags on their heads? I have been desensitised by Liveleak.

Isn't that a bit like s€x box which is another programme they already make. They've had an episode where complete strangers go into that box of how's your father whilst the audience sit outside.

Saw a bit of naked attraction the other evening. To say I'd sound like Mary Whitehouse if I expressed my feelings is an understatement. Infact, I don't wash much of the main channels and rarely discuss TV programmes but I asked a few people the next day if they'd seen it, such was my disgust.

It's probably what the producers want. It takes a lot for a new programme to break the ice. If you talk about it, people who haven't watched it, go watch it, and so on. Going viral is the aim!

Whats the point?

Inthe mid 80s. Chh4 was a young gentlemans only access to moving naked ladies.

The sale of colour portables was driven by the Red triangle.

Now this stuff is Yawn.

If you want to see that stuff you have pornhub.

You dont have to put with the pretense that this is a serious programme.

Watched both episodes out of incredulity :blink:

Puerile idea. Thoroughly boring format. Reliable to grab ratings in the UK, which says it all about today's society. (I have no problem with naked bodies btw, in fact it would be a lot better if nakedness was more normal.)

Three of the women have been a bit weird I think, a bit precious or too self confident.

The prevalence of tattoos just splatted randomly across the bodies is the most interesting observation to me. And that chest-neck tattoo, wtf ?

And one guy seemed to want to play with himself, bit of insecurity there, hardly surprising.

I think if you take it at face value then it is quite dull, designed for a reaction, and a one-trick pony that won't get a second series. That's not to say it isn't worth watching though, I've watched both episodes and found them really interesting.

Like LiveinHope I was surprised at the number of tattoos. Is that because loads in the early 20s age group has tattoos these days, or because those that do are more likely to be the sort of person to volunteer to appear naked on TV? Don't know.

Virtually all the woman shave their.... (not sure what to put here to keep the forum clean....).... shave their Fubras completely. Is that because all women in their early 20s do that now? My very limited experience says yes, but it could also be because they think "I'm going to be on TV and the other girls will be completely shaved, so I'd better shave too".

In my opinion all the girls have had good bodies, most of the men have been pretty average though. I feel a lot better about my body after seeing average men getting compliments about aspects of their body from hot women.

There was a girl on the last show, the red-head on the right, who was to my mind absolutely stunning naked. At the end when they showed her clothed she was wearing Dr Martins and a hippy dress/wrap-around kind of thing and I wouldn't look twice at her in the street. That got me thinking too.

The bloke choosing in the last episode had a great body, was a DJ, yet couldn't get a girl-friend and was quite obviously lacking in confidence (at one point he was stood fully clothed choosing between four hot naked woman and it was him who was getting flustered).

And it's interesting that men choose differently to how I would.

So I think it's very interesting to watch because it shows you parts of male/female interaction and hints to our psychie that you'd otherwise never get to see.

Good comments all round but just focusing on some of VoR's comments, have only seen half of the 2nd so Ania was the only girl I've seen : ex-ballet dancer - no surprises about her cute as button figure, but your point re the men being average, agreed. Makes me wonder about my own psyche, as you say. I question why I am so shy wrt my own body. And then I'm minded to think it goes beyond just physical attributes. It also occured to me that we had a reversal of what we see on Take Me Out : guys w/ gym bodies, girls looking like they spend way too long in keebab queues post 15 tequilla slammers.

VoR's comment about rejecting clothed women is also interesting. Clothed, Ania had a larger nose than I'd ever consider. Clothes off, everything seemed great. Reminded me that for sometime I've expressed the view that the face is a girl's most important attribute, whilst knowing, from porn, that when it comes to doing the deed, it's the body that really matters. I suppose you could say that clothing is disadvantaging girls with great bodies in our society. Doubtless it's fuelling the obesity crisis.

And as always it's interesting to see what women (attractive ones) say about bodiy shapes we do no aspire to (if we aspire to achieve one at all). Would I stop working out if my ideal woman told me were good to go so long as I got a beer belly? Oddly, I'm thinking 'no'. Would quite like to hear others views on this last point.

I wouldn't ever have a body shape I was uncomfortable with if my ideal woman said she liked it. I think if I did that, if I piled on an extra stone for example, I'd be less confident and that in itself would be less attractive so I actually don't think it would ever be the right thing to do.

Some of the comments that the girls doing the choosing have made have been quite interesting. The theory goes that physical appearance is of very high importance for men, but women think more holistically and characteristics like confidence, wealth, social proof etc will be very important to women. So if you're a woman confronted with 6 men who are naked, you can only see them from the waist down, they can't speak, you know nothing about them, then you have almost all of the selective data you want taken away from you. The result? You get women saying "I like him because he has a confident stance" i.e. desperately looking for some clue as to the man in front of her, rather than choosing the nicest physical features.

Edit: Having said all that I've remembered that Ania, for all her positive comments about body shapes, eventually went on a date with the guy who had the most gym-body of the six she had to choose from...

I heard The Media Show on Wednesday. Two critics laid into it without mercy and then Anna Richardson gave a robust, if rubbish, defence of it. Partly because they said she had damaged her career by taking the job.

It sounds awful; the sort of thing you might come up with after a "refreshing" lunch.

Was Anna naked - like Cheggas?

One the topic of kit off, I saw the Orlando piccies.

Why oh why oh why could Katy Perry not have took her top off?

No (I haven't watched it but they said not), but the critics referenced him and that show as being what you think of when his name is mentioned so it was a bad idea to do it.

First there is the sexual attraction...that would involve scent, the sound of the voice, the way the body moves.

Then there is the personality, and the person you first met and fell in love with becomes a concept in your brain...much more than the physical presented before you.

Showing body parts is just a sop to falling advertising revenues, when young people can get body parts on demand 24/7/365 on their phones.

What, the people volunteer to be killed and dismembered bit by bit? The body parts are then displayed after they have been cut off?

So the singletons get to date a partially dismembered corpse?

Will they combine it with sex box. Pick a date for instant sex? Some of the tattoos are awful.

stellavision!!!!!

blind date meets blind drunk.

the only prerequisite is that the contestants do their conjugals on the first night, and then report back the following day once they've sobered up!

V observant re the "stance" comments, and yes, as you edit, she did go for the gym-body in the end.

Of course, what we haven't mentioned is the Hawthorne effect. Maybe she chose the gym-bod because her mates were watching? I prefer to think not. I don't wanna imagine the beer belly guy slavering all over her! :mellow:

or glory-date, where their only contact is through a two-inch hole in a plaster-board screen. They give their "first impressions" before being introduced / taken for a walk / herded etc.
