I try not to judge people. Really, I do. Some people make you go there though. I’m going to go so far as to say they practically beg for your judgement! I came across some of these judgement seeking people the other night. We were flipping through the channels and came across this show on VH1 called “Dating Naked”.
It’s exactly what you think it is. People sign up to meet and date total strangers, totally nude. They are in a sort of set up like “The Bachelor” or “Big Brother” in that there are a bunch of people. The daters get to go out on one date with three different people and then decide who they have more of a connection with. They also spend time all together on this little island and do some skinny dipping in the pool. There are rooms where they can get together and have “conversations” to get to know each other better. How convenient for them that room has a bed. Even more convenient that everyone is already naked. It doesn’t take much for the “feelings” to kick in, right? In the interviews, the “daters” were talking about how they just want to find love. I couldn’t help but give them a serious side eye.
There was one girl on the show whose name was Wee Wee. I find that to be an interesting name for a show like this. Again, side eye. This is Wee Wee on one of her dates:
These two words immediately popped into my mind…
I found myself watching this show and questioning so many things. I wondered if the show was fair to the guys? I mean, wouldn’t it be obvious if he was interested in you, even a little bit? He’s naked, things happen. Yeah. I also though about all of them skinny dipping in that pool together and wondered if the chlorine was working overtime to kill whatever was in that water? Gross. Most of all, I wanted to know what in the world would make someone sign up for a show like this?
Is it really that hard to get a date? Is meeting people fully clothed, in random places totally overrated? Has Match.com finally fizzled out? How did producers get people to think this was a good idea? What did they say? Were they all, “think Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve… ” I’m sure they convinced executives that this would be ground breaking television. I just think stoopid. Yes, s-t-o-o-p-i-d.
The thirst for 15 minutes of fame is real. I just can’t believe that anyone is that hard up for a date. Pun intended.
Have you seen this show? Have you heard of it?
