"These days we're supposed to be more 'connected' than ever, but it's actually harder than ever to truly connect. Online dates, blind dates, and the latest in ridiculous dating apps all make it hard to see people for who they really are. A new social experiment provides daters with a radical dating experience where before they bare their souls they bare everything else first" - this is how VH1 started advertising their upcoming show "Dating Naked".
According to the American television network, this reality show is a new social experiment, which will provide daters with the absolute dating experience. The daters will be send on a primitive island, away from modern society, and will be naked in every step of the way while going on exotic dates.
The show will send the daters on three filmed naked dates, which they call 'a social experiment'. In the end, the participants can choose to continue dating their dates even after the show.
Whether the show will be accepted by the society or not is still a question. It is being promoted through social media channels and, most of the tweets have objected the show, though there are a few who do support the new idea of the channel.
Are such shows acceptable in the society? The people of course do not think alike. It is a bit confusing, as on one hand shows like "Dating Naked" are gaining popularity, while on the other hand, actions are taken for posting a baby's bare belly photos.
Huffington Post has published an article about a mother, who was blocked temporarily from Instagram for posting a photo of her baby girl's bare belly.
Courtney Adamo, a London-based writer for the popular Babyccino Kids blog, found her account disabled because of the photo.
"I read the entire page twice and was positive that I had not violated any rules. Unless a baby's belly is considered 'nudity'...but surely it isn't! She is a BABY!" she wrote on her blog.
Meanwhile, "Dating Naked" , hosted by Amy Paffrath, had its premiere on Thursday. For promotion, the show had released a small flash mob video of naked people dancing to "I'm just Wild About Harry" at a Los Angeles shopping center.
