Time for an update: I still use film, though. Not vast quantities, but I have a darkroom, and I'm not afraid to use it.

I enjoy every image I take: I hope you'll enjoy looking at them.

Naked Attraction

Yesterday, I had an experience that – I’m delighted to say – I now need never have again. I watched an episode of a TV programme called Naked Attraction: it is definitely not family viewing, though it is funny. The humour is suitable for those over 18 and not of a puritanical disposition.

It’s a dating show and it works like this. One person who wants to go on a date is faced with six ‘pods’ – brightly coloured boxes, inside which stands one person of the sex the individual wants to go out with. The fronts of the boxes are raised in stages, and at each stage one person in a box is eliminated. There is much silliness, and many lewd remarks.

So the first person is eliminated on the basis of their legs and naughty bits, the second on the basis of their torso, and the third on their face. After that, they’re allowed to talk (more raunchiness…). That takes it down to two bodies to choose from: the chooser has to make that choice without their own clothes. The final step is a date, with clothes.

It sounds appalling: it IS appalling. But everyone seems to have a lot of fun doing it. And I think there are deep lessons for any viewer about life, the nature of sexuality, and how we judge each other by the superficial: all the participants seem to realise that there’s more to a relationship than physical appeal. Also, notably, there are older men and women involved, and many imperfect bodies.

You may want to watch an episode – but don’t complain if you’re offended! And if you’ve ever thought unkind or judgmental thoughts about a model you’ve viewed on this site (whether or not they are wearing clothes), it may prompt you to think again. Human beings are a complete package, made up of a mind and soul as well as a face and body…

But it is a very silly programme, and if your sense of humour encompasses the crude and rude, you’ll probably enjoy it.
