There’s “Naked and Afraid,” a show in which two contestants are released into the wild, where they must perform “Survivor”-style challenges; “Buying Naked,” in which nudists go house hunting; and “Skin Wars,” which is about body painting.
Yet “Dating Naked” may be the most chaste of the bunch, and the show seems to recognize its own harmlessness.

She is a classic reality-show ringer—outrageous, sweary, and likely an aspiring actress.
Walking in the jungle, she mumbles, “This is like the beginning of a bad porno.” She’s bound for the zip line, but pauses to mock the very conventions of the show: “This is my version of getting to know somebody.
“You talked a little bit about how you go through guys like they’re chewing gum, and I am not a piece of candy,” Steven, a thirty-something Australian living in Los Angeles, says to one of his dates. “I’m hoping to meet my true love on this island,” Diane, aged twenty-eight, tells the camera.
Later, she clarifies her intentions: “I don’t want someone who is going to try to get laid on the first date. Sometimes the contestants go barefoot when walking on the beach or through the jungle, other times they wear socks and sneakers.
But none of it has worked.” It has come to this, she seems to say, a bit pityingly.Even if you choose not to have your activity tracked by third parties for advertising services, you will still see non-personalized ads on our site.Wir verwenden Cookies, um Inhalte zu personalisieren, Werbeanzeigen maßzuschneidern und zu messen sowie die Sicherheit unserer Nutzer zu erhöhen.Someone tell the Parents Television Council: this is the new face of real old-fashioned family values.

This fall, they’ll air a special wedding episode, in which two characters who met on the show will tie the knot naked, their private bits tastefully blurred.You know, I want the romance.”As far as romance goes, the following staged dating activities are done naked, to varying aesthetic and practical results: conga playing, bird-watching, water skiing, water tubing, A. V.ing, salsa dancing, horseback riding, spearfishing, paddleboarding, zip-lining. Safety helmets are allowed at times, as are hats: one pair wears matching pith helmets on a nature walk; another sports Stetsons.And, for a naked dating show, there are plenty of covered moments back at the so-called Jungle Villa (Clothing Optional), where the contestants, contrary to the spirit of the show, seem to get to know each other better when seeing less of one another.
