Naked attraction
« on: August 11, 2022, 08:35:18 pm »
What do you guys think about the show Naked Attraction? The dating show where all participants are naked and a date is selected based on naked attraction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naked_Attraction

It recently started airing here in Sweden and it's caused quite a bit of controversy. Do you like it or dislike it? Why?

Pathetic cheap tacky attempt at entertainment worse than blind date from the UK in 1990s at least with blind date “contestants” chose their dates based on answers to questions and not which body parts they liked the look of

I have several friends who appreciate the show a lot because they think that it  de-dramatizes nudity. They've  chatted to me about it because they know about my "affinity for nudity". And I mean.., I don't mind the show. Especially if it means that people accept nudity more than before. But.. They're always looking for a shock factor I assume. So it's not nudity from the best angle so to speak, the perspective of nudism would be really hard to capture on screen.

I don't like it. They are using nudity to attract audience, plain and simple. And the fact that it is a "dating" show, makes it worse. Somehow the idea they are giving is that the body is all that matters.

Yep exactly it’s doing the opposite to what is needed to raise awareness that nudity isn’t necessarily sexual and objectifying those taking part

I haven't seen it and I don't want to. It is an awful idea that does everything bad with nudism and don't help us to show others how we feel and think.
New to social nudism. Watching anime and being naked are my dreams. Let's be friends!

I think we should take that kind of show as what it is: just as a joke more. I'm not sure if that damages the nudism view to the public, but it would be fun to participate

So my opinion of Naked Attraction seems to be quite a bit different from other people here. Whilst I think that the premise of the show is complete rubbish (choosing a date from physical attraction alone), I think that actually it has helped a bit too. I remember when it first aired here in the UK a few years ago. There was quite a bit of backlash. However, after a few years now I think it's actually helped a little bit when it comes to people's views on nudity, especially in regards to TV. From what I can remember nudity on TV in the UK did happen but was quite rare. However, since 2016 there have been quite a few shows now which include nudity. So I think as a whole Naked Attraction had a role to play into a bigger acceptance for nudity on UK TV.

It perfectly connects to the "Tinder Generation" and sensational TV programs many people would watch, but it has nothing to do with naturism. I think commercializing nudity like Naked Attraction is doing is hurting normalized nudity and sucks for naturism as a whole.
Got a question or need help with the forum? Shoot me a message :)

It's a fun idea but I don't like it. I've seen some UK episodes. But I cannot watch the Swedish ones, say too cringe

No, but I think it hits too close to home. Like when it's in the uk it's a bit more foreig

Looks like I'm a bit of an outlier, cause I actually think it's alright. Considering there's already quite a lot of seasons/episodes, there's not really much shock factor going for them anymore (at least for the UK version). And tbh, from the couple episodes I've watched it doesn’t seem like theyre trying to be shocking. Most contestants are average looking, they're not trying to be sexy and they're not just getting everyone that's conventionally attractive. The cast is always usually very diverse in body shape, gender, and race. They also add in some educational info on different stuff like gender, body and sex positivity.
Don't be afraid to try something new.

It doesn't air over here, but I've seen clips online.  I find it more productive to watch a slew of cat videos (Nothing wrong with cat videos, BTW.  Love them).

Cat videos can at least be funny
