(By Ricky Scaparo) Remember the dating show back in the 80’s called “The Love Connection” with host Chuck Woolery where singles attempted to connect with a compatible partner of the opposite gender? Well for one they were all FULLY clothed, and there were no sexual innuendos in the program. Apparently, Clean shows like this are long gone. Society’s driven desire for nudity and immorality has bled into the Television and Movie Industry for years now and has completely transformed the way we watch or listen today.
Between TLC’s Undressed and Channel 4’s Naked Attraction, the entire genre feels like it’s reached its natural endpoint. A new report from the Guardian expresses how we have now found ourselves at a terrible new dawn, where desirability is judged by genitalia. One program called Undressed puts two strangers in a room and makes them undress each other before they sit on a bed and answer questions.
And then there is Naked Attraction, which begins tonight consisting of people that are lined up naked and judged by those interested in dating them based on what they see! Then there is VH1’s “Dating Naked” which is a reality dating game show that was launched on VH1, and debuted in July 2014. The show matches up several heterosexual contestants who are routinely switched with other contestants while nude most of the time with the genitals of both sexes along with the female breasts, and occasionally the buttocks, blurred out.
Then we have “Naked and Afraid” which has really taken off on the Discovery Channel, which is a program based on a man and a woman in the buff placed in the middle of nowhere left to survive using their primitive skills and their ability to work together. And if this doesn’t sound ridiculous than perhaps the show “Buying Naked” will top the cake? This show is reality television program that premiered on TLC, on November 20, 2013, featuring real estate agent Jackie Youngblood as she shows homes in clothing optional communities to house-hunting nudists.
Are we surprised that television has come to this? We all knew that the closer we get to the end, the more immoral society would become. Unfortunately, I predict it will become even worse. I remember when a man of God once said that the new normal would come when nudity would be embraced in the “House of God.” And befoe you dismiss this as crazy it’s already happening.
