Discovery Channel's New Program Forgoes Clothes
As the newest show airing on the Discovery Channel, "N*ked And Afraid" has cast members who are completely uncovered and dropped in the jungle with no food and no clothes. They must survive with only one survival item each of their choice. The program airs on Sunday at 10:00 ET/9:00 p.m. CT.
The two survivalists are n*ked, not only to make it more difficult to stay warm when it rains, but also to make them as uncomfortable, vulnerable and miserable as possible while they survive in the jungle for 21 days. The two humans selected, one male and one female, are to work as a team but they have never met before in their lives. This is awkward for them and for viewers. A couple of episodes have aired which show them uncovered, blurring out frontal body parts but never blurring out their backsides. One episode showed the female making clothes for them to cover the front on the second and third day and continuously replacing these items after they wear out. These articles of clothing made from leaves and vines do not cover completely because the network has to continue to blur out body parts that are revealed from time to time.
Either Discovery desperately wanted to hear from One Million Moms or the network's writers and producers have run out of ideas for new programs. Discovery should be ashamed to air n*dity and then call it entertainment. In fact, having the cast be n*ked is the basis for fifty percent of the show. Even though the frontal body parts are blurred out, having so much skin showing is considered soft p*rn.
Please send Discovery Channel an email letter urging they cancel this offensive show "Naked And Afraid" immediately. Let them know the program is inappropriate and even the commercials are offensive, and so until the program is pulled your family will not be tuning into their network to avoid being exposed to n*dity when there is more suitable, family-friendly entertainment available.
