Is Naked Attraction suitable for kids?

My friend told me recently that she lets her 11 year old girl and 10 year old boy watch Naked Attraction with her and her partner. She said it was educational and that she didn't want them growing up being ashamed of their bodies. AIBU to be shocked by this or am I being a prude? I have children of a similar age and would never allow them to watch something so graphic.

WTF that's mental

I only saw a bit by accident and I'm not sure it's suitable for TV full stop.

LuluBellaBlue Wed 26-Feb-20 12:58:16

No it’s not suitable

chellochello Wed 26-Feb-20 12:58:20

No not at all suitable!

HairyFloppins Wed 26-Feb-20 12:58:33

No it’s not suitable for me and I’m 38

I think she can teach them about self love, body awareness, self respect and other such things without making them watch a shallow self obsessed ridiculous show that is aimed at pure physical attraction of the genitals to decide whether or not someone is good enough to date.
Yes for adults it can be humorous - for impressionable pre-teens, what is she thinking!!!???

OMG. That's absolutely batshit.

It’s not suitable for telly full stop! Watched it once, husband and I like this 😮 throughout.
Who on Earth in their right minds goes on there to then face their family, friends and colleagues afterwards?!

Back on topic, great that they’re teaching their kids to not be ashamed of bodies but Christ there must be a better way then watching that!

When I said to her that I didn't think it was right letting them watch it, she got all defensive and said that she didn't have to justify how she brings her kids up as she does a brilliant job.

My 12 yo dd told me her friend - a boy also 12 - watches GOT with his dm on contact visits.
Neither suitable imo.

I wouldn't even say it's suitable for adults! Honestly it's a bizarre programme. The way they talk about their bits is just grim. I hate the way they talk about the 'nice tucked in' vaginas.

I suppose the one saving grace is that there is a massive range of shapes and sizes but I'm really clutching at straws there. Certainly wouldn't be letting my dc watch. If you want them to learn about their bodies they are better ways to do it!

@insomniasucks God no. It's utterly vile.

One woman on there was saying she wants a man with a massive cock as she has a fanny like a jam jar after having 3 kids .. (Not saying a woman's fanny WOULD be like this, but she said HERS was.)

Then there was a woman (about 55 y.o.) who said she was a Churchgoer/avid Christian, and proceeded to say she likes a man to tickle her fanny with his feet, and needed a man who could fuck for at least 2 hours.

Foul programme which I no longer watch. And no it is NOT suitable for anyone under 18.

She said it was educational and that she didn't want them growing up being ashamed of their bodies.

But she's clearly ok with them growing up having their bodies objectified. She's a twat - WTF is wrong with her thinking processes?

TotesGodsWill Wed 26-Feb-20 13:04:44

Absolutely not!

Full frontal nudity aside, while it’s generally quite body positive and I’m sure people are briefed not to say things like “too fat” it’s still essentially judging people on appearance.

But it’s really not appropriate for preteen children to see a line up of adult genitals on tv!

faracrossthepond Wed 26-Feb-20 13:05:23

As a pp said, how on earth do these people face their family and friends after?

This woman who claimed to be a committed Christian seemed unhinged to me, and if she was a regular at my Church, I flat out wouldn't be able to look at her again, let alone speak to her.

messolini9 Wed 26-Feb-20 13:05:33

she got all defensive and said that she didn't have to justify how she brings her kids up as she does a brilliant job.

In her opinion, which is obviously seriously flawed.

Chickychoccyegg Wed 26-Feb-20 13:06:17

definitely unsuitable for kids, unsuitable for everyone really, its a horrible programme.

Alsohuman Wed 26-Feb-20 13:06:23

It’s not suitable for anyone in my view. It’s one of the most vulgar, inappropriate things I’ve ever seen, I’m astonished it ever made it to the screen.

DobbyLovesSocks Wed 26-Feb-20 13:07:14

OMG no way. It's not even on just after the watershed, i.e. 9pm, it's on much later.
I have watched it a few times as it's one of those programmes that you flick onto it by mistake and you end up transfixed in a car-crashy type way.
I'm all for not being ashamed of bodies etc but you can do that with books etc.

I answer my DS's questions honestly (age appropriately) but would never expose him to this

Lllot5 Wed 26-Feb-20 13:07:42

Not suitable to be on tv. Never mind anything else.

TheLowry Wed 26-Feb-20 13:08:19

Not when the host asks contestants if they can imagine themselves 'going down there'.

Lordfrontpaw Wed 26-Feb-20 13:09:17

Is that like naked dating? Well, that would put them off sex for life. The human body is rarely a thing of absolute beauty or symmetry.

But then I suppose it shows them that real people aren't like (airbrushed) ads or films/porn...

TrashPanda Wed 26-Feb-20 13:10:51

Hugely unsuitable, not because of the nudity though.

Idontkowmyname Wed 26-Feb-20 13:11:00

Absolutely not suitable for any minor. The content might actually put it into the realms of being abusive behaviour to show them.
