Naked Attraction prompts Ofcom complaints after 300 scenes of nudity

NAKED ATTRACTION

Channel 4's new dating show Naked Attraction has prompted 45 complaints to TV watchdog Ofcom.

The new series launched on Monday and sees singletons paired up based on what they look like nude.

Despite the warnings of nudity, not that it's already clear from the name, Naked Attraction has racked up complaints to Ofcom over the past 24 hours.

In all the first episode showcased an average of five penises and two vaginas per minute, probably a record for a TV show.

A spokesperson for Channel 4 defended the series to The Sun: "This is a light-hearted and appropriately scheduled series which aims to demystify the rules of sexual attraction for the Tinder generation.”

Host Anna Richardson has insisted that the show has a "deeper point" beyond boobs and bums.

"It’s fun, and we are saying 'It’s as fun show, it’s dating in reverse.'," she said. "We are making a slightly deeper point, it’s not just an excuse to show boobs and winkies.

"People do struggle to meet a partner in the 21st Century with online dating and people not really being who they seem to be. So we’re asking what do we really find attractive when the clothes come off, and how easily do we judge people?

"What’s been a real revelation to me doing this show is how kind and supportive every single person was that took part. Nobody ever passed a negative comment, and I think we could all learn from that in this day and age. We’re all vulnerable underneath it all, and it’s not nice to point the finger and laugh. So it was a hugely uplifting experience."

Despite the complaints, Naked Attraction has proved a hit with an average of 1.4 million viewers tuning to the series opener.

Naked Attraction airs Monday nights at 10PM on Channel 4.
