Channel 4 ‘recommissions Naked Attraction’

The Channel 4 show – which sees single men and women decide who they want to date by looking at their potential future lovers completely nude – will make its return in the new year following a “debate” among the channel’s buses.

A source told The Sun: “The first series of Naked Attraction proved that the nation has a fascination with full frontal nudity and seeing suitors being picked by their privates. It drew in fantastic viewing figures and stirred up quite a reaction on social media.

“There has therefore been little debate among bosses as to whether it should be recommissioned – and they have decided that they want a second series to air in the new year.”

Britains Secrets with Anne Robinson – BBC

Anne Robinson couldn’t resist taking a swipe at a nudist’s penis size as she talked about body image in a new show.
The Weakest Link host, who is well known for her acerbic jibes, mocked the man’s seemingly shrinking manhood as they talked about body image.

Mike Clarke was showing old pictures of himself in the buff to Anne in the BBC1 show, Britain’s Secret with Anne Robinson , when she couldn’t resist making an observation.

“Wow your bits look a bit different there,” she said, observing a picture of Clarke from his 20s.

“They looked bigger when you were younger.”

To which Mike admitted: “Yeah, that’s what happens when you get older, everything shrinks.”

It's a blur naked and afraid editor tells all

Danglers, Nip Slips and Side Boob: ‘Naked and Afraid’ Blur Editor Tells All

Do you have a problem with nudity?” That’s the first question I was asked during my interview.

Obviously not, because it’s naked bits all day long here. Let’s say somebody’s building a fish basket, working with their hands in front of their boobs or their junk — there’s a frame-by-frame process of cutting out arms and other things from the footage, putting the blur over across the original plate and layering the rest back in. Our job is to make it seamless for viewers so they’re less aware of the blurs. It can be extremely tedious work, so we’ve seen people come and go from here. They just don’t have it in them.

We like to think the fake boobs are easier to pixelate because they don’t move around as much — one of our guys, Shaun O’Steen, says he never really appreciated fake breasts until he started at this job — but, realistically, the crotch is easiest. There’s only one, and arms rarely get in the way.

Young Naturists hit Project Runway reality TV show

Project Runway has been on TV for over 10 years and was originally hosted by Heidi Klum. The “All Stars” variety brings on contestants from previous episodes and is now in its 5th season. It’s hosted by actress Alyssa Milano, who is also an advocate for positive body image and public breastfeeding (and she was the major reason why we agreed to participate).

Every episode presents a new challenge for the fashion designers who must then present their creations to a panel of judges. Alyssa and the other judges pick and discuss the best and worst outfits. One designer is eliminated each week until a final winner is chosen at the end of the season.

This is the first time that the show has ever had nudists as the “models” and this was their first ever “naked runway.”

This Is the Nudist Colony That Got a Downton Shout-Out

The Moonella Group was a real thing

The Essex-based colony, known as the Moonella Group was — as we’ve come to expect from Downton — an actual thing. As The Telegraph explained in a 2006 look at the history of naked Britons, the Moonella Group was the first club to bring nudism (also known as naturism) over to the U.K. from the Continent, which it did in the years following World War I.

The modern British Naturism organization elaborates in its own history of the movement, Moonella was the code-name of the club member who owned the property where the camp was established. He or she invited some elite members of the New Gymnosophy Society to use the groups for their naturist needs, as long as they followed certain rules of decorum.
