Channel 4 online dating show - How to hack into chatwithpornstars
In the new age of technological and social efficiency, Channel 4's looking to cut out a few major steps in the dating process: get naked first, actually learn about each other's personalities second.
When only two potential dates are left, they parade naked while the contestant runs the rule over them, and while this doesn’t quite happen literally, in Monday’s opening programme one aspiring suitor was rejected because his penis was too big. The show’s message, loudly amplified by Richardson (the only person who doesn’t get naked, since the contestants eventually have to strip off, before striding off hand in hand with their dates), is that as two people weigh each other up as candidates for a possible relationship, clothes are a distraction, an irrelevance.
Of course, the bar could hardly be lower than it already is.
Already this year we have been subjected to ITV2’s Love Island, in which one couple copulated in broad daylight while other contestants commented on their love-making technique. From every angle, but especially the one that allows participants to assess the sexual organs of their six would-be dates, Naked Attraction is utterly ghastly, and depressingly degrading.
It's a format that is supposedly trading off the belief of some evolutionary psychologists and sexual scientists that the best indication of a successful partner is still found in the physique itself; though modern culture has added peripheral factors of attraction such a dress sense and occupation.
The show will be hosted by Anna Richardson; its first episode will feature contestant Aina, who's after someone adventurous - which you presumably would have to be to sign onto this show.
Naked Attraction is set to make Take Me Out look like a prim Jane Austen novel and Blind Date like Brief Encounter.
Yet it sets itself up not as some titillating fleshfest riding roughshod over the boundaries of decency, but as a SCIENTIFIC experiment.
Thousands of viewers complained on Twitter and media guardians branded Naked Attraction — an uncensored nude dating show — the ‘worst programme ever shown on TV’.
Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom has already received 24 complaints about nudity.
First up is music producer Aina, 32, who says: “When guys are fully- clothed they have different styles that sometimes they can hide behind.
“I’m interested in seeing them in their birthday suits, just as they are.” Self-confessed party animal Aina — who thinks men are “intimidated” by her full-on approach to life — and Anna then giggle as they inspect the privates on parade, deciding which men to discard. One contestant, Matty, has an elephant head tattooed around his long penis and he also has a prosthetic leg.
Aina, who says she’s looking for a “best mate who is also good in bed”, gets to see the torsos and discards another man, before being allowed to see the final four’s faces. Luckily, Anna fills any silent moments with educational facts — like why women prefer girth to length — with cringey graphics which are in some ways more explicit than the naked bodies.
