Naked dating in sweden
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.
In case you missed the news that traditional courtship is dead, naked people on VH1 stand ready to enlighten you.
And in case you thought that television networks had evolved beyond trying to attract viewers with cheesy titillation — ditto.
Both shows are probably inevitable next steps in television’s endless effort to capitalize on the human need to pair up, which stretches back to “The Dating Game” of the 1960s and runs through “The Bachelor,” “The Millionaire Matchmaker” and odd variations like “It Takes a Church.” The two new entries are, of course, outrageous affronts to the style of courtship that has served humanity quite well for millenniums, if you don’t count the dismaying frequency of divorce and resulting psychological damage to all involved.
The shows are taking what used to be the long-term goal — getting married or seeing someone naked or both — and making it the starting point.
Showtime commissioned a video (title: “Undress Me”) of strangers stripping one another as a promotion — oh, sorry; according to the network, it’s a “social experiment” — for the new season of “Masters of Sex.” In August, GSN introduces a body painting show called “Skin Wars.” Clearly, there soon won’t be a clothed person left on television, reality or scripted."If you use your home or apartment as a stage to pose naked for others to see there may be consequences," Swedish Tenant Union lawyer Nyström said in magazine Hem & Hyra on Wednesday.Nyström explained that sunbathing topless - or entirely naked - on your balcony should be okay, and having sex by a window is fine and dandy as long as the neighbours don't have a clear view in.If people feel harassed you may be fined and have to pay damages.Nor may you pick up your mail from the mailbox while in the nude.
