Channel 4’s daring new dating series, that allows its contestants to see the naked body of potential love interests before they meet them, has sparked outrage across social media.
There has been an outpour of complaints to Ofcom from viewers about the repeated close-up genital shots, raises the moral question as to whether it is right or wrong to broadcast the body, and all of its full-frontal nudity, on national television.
Even though the show did attract positive remarks from a proportion of the 1.4 million viewers, the episode also attracted scathing reviews. Telegraph critic Gerard O’Donovan said the programme “essentially reduced human attraction to a kind of game show meat market”.
One twitter user, @izzyrosemiller, tweeted “Naked Attraction is the weirdest, most disgusting and humiliating programme and I have no idea how it’s allowed on TV”.
We at TNT want to know your views about what this means for the way we define attractiveness or attraction. Is Channel 4 taking it too far? Or is the way we all look when naked the most important aspect to be considered when choosing a life partner?
