“The show is called Ultra Strips Down and sees grown-up folks getting their kit off in a controlled environment in front of kids between the ages of 11 and 13 in order to show them that there is no such thing as a ‘normal’ or ‘perfect’ human body.
The show claims to “promote body positivity and combat body-shaming” but obviously some people aren’t impressed by it.”
Here is another article, which includes video of the event.
“A children’s TV show in Denmark has raised eyebrows after asking adults to pose naked in front of school pupils in a bid to promote body positivity.
On Ultra Strips Down, a live studio of 11 to 13-year-olds watch as five adult guests undress. The children are then encouraged to ask questions about their bodies.
The series host, Jannik Schow, who co-developed the idea with a producer, told The New York Times: “Perhaps some people are like, ‘Oh, my God, they are combining nakedness and kids. But this has nothing to do with sex, it’s about seeing the body as natural, the way kids do.”
Personally, I think this is a very forward thinking practice.
Nobody was hurt by it…The parents agreed to let their children participate in the episode.
The human body is not vulgar.
…We should not condition children to think that it is.
