To wonder why you would get your fango out on national television rather than go to your doctor?

Im talking about embarassing bodies and it is something that has puzzled me for a while, why wouldn'y you go to your GP, am I missing something?

Because people are so desperate for attention they would rather show their flaps than be ignored. I do wonder if they pay people a fee to appear actually?

Because your GP doesnt have a camera crew (or at least mine doesnt)

The only explanation I can think of is that the people on the show want to get on the TV no matter what.

Often people who are on there have been to their GP and have had no luck in getting their issue sorted.

There was an MN-er who went on the kids one with her daughter, they'd tried and tried to sort out her problem with the GPs but nothing worked. They went on EB, saw a specialist and the problem was either completely cured or drastically improved.

I think because if you are on the show you get private treatment for free.

Haven't been watching it, but maybe they feel they'll get treatment more quickly (or even in private hospitals) if they go on the programme.

They fast-track them privately on EB AFAIK.

The thing is most of the people seem relatively normal and not desperate for attention, I wonder if they are paid?

Flisspaps Mon 12-Sep-11 21:38:40

No, I think they're probably desperate to sort out their medical issue and get on with living a normal life.

I sometimes think they should turn the fucking camera off and leave the patient alone to recieve the treatment. They likely don't want the indignity of a camera between their legs, I don't want to see it, but then they wouldn't have a show I guess....

What Flisspaps said. And I can categorically confirm that you do not receive payment. But yes, there is fast-tracking.

and why did the lady with it all hanging out have to wear red nail varnish?

I think she was a model of some kind. I must say I think people who go on there with gynaelogical problems are incredibly brave, I don't think I would have the guts!

Im just watching this on +1. I suppose, that the whole point, is that people get to see these things arent as uncommon as they think, and that they can get treatment, without being embarassed, or thinking that they are freaks. The people who show their bits, are there because they want help.
That they agree to show their personal parts on TV, means that they help others too.
