The bodies of contestants were safely blurred and waxed too. In addition, foul or curse words were beeped, making the show fit to be watched by a 15+ audience. Regardless of all the controversies that came along uninvited, the show seems to have gained a fair deal of fan following. The best thing being that the show managed to target a community that wasn't explored on television earlier.
The nudist dating has always been overshadowed by other segments. It is for the first time that a TV show has emphasized on this community. This gesture has been welcomed by the nudist community with open arms, who feel that it is essential for people to know and accept their existence.
People have diverse opinions on nudist dating. While some consider it mere filth, others have begun accepting it as a part of society. Dating experts believe that such shows will make people aware of the community's beliefs. Some people claim that they had expected such as show, given the fact that nudist dating sites have become so popular.
NudistDatingSites.net shows that online nudist dating sites, that have served people for over 13 years, boast of over 700,000 users. These staggering numbers are proof of the increasing recognition of people who follow a nudist lifestyle.
What led to a show exclusive to nudists?
Well, this certainly is a million dollar question and we seem to have an answer to this. Nudist dating sites are abuzz with new members. Moreover, in the last 10 years, the number of nudist clubs and nudist resorts has also sky-rocketed.
It is worth mentioning that this isn't the first show based on the concept of nudism. The TV series Naked Vegas, TLC's Buying Naked and Discovery Channel's Naked and Afraid have earlier been appreciated by the audience. There is no doubt about the fact that the world and nudists in particular were anticipating a show on nudist dating, which came in the form of Dating Naked.
It remains to be seen how other major players in the multi–million TV industry view this move made by VH1.
