Dailies | VH1’s ‘Dating Naked’ Series Gives New Meaning to ‘Just Hanging Out’ (Video)

Boy meets girl and then they get naked on the upcoming reality show

With lots of nude dating shows being considered in Hollywood, VH1 is way ahead of the game with its show, “Dating Naked,” which premieres Thursday, July 17 at 9/8c.

The network has released a couple teasers for the series and they give a good idea of what viewers can expect.

Each episode features a man and woman and two different naked dates each. In the end, they’ll choose one to move forward on their dating adventure — possibly with clothes.

The deeper idea behind the series is to see what will happen once you literally strip someone of all the things that externally define you or distract you.

“[The nudity] was really a storytelling device that was about something — the search for true love and what happens when you throw away your inhibitions,” VH1’s executive vice president of original programming and production, Susan Levison, told TheWrap previously.

Hosted by Amy Paffrath, the series’ first season will consist of 10 one-hour episodes.

VH1 says that each episode will be edited to network standards, but one individual close to the production previously told TheWrap that “Dating Naked” “doesn’t leave much to the imagination.”

And in case your imagination needs a little help, the contenders are pretty open about what’s going down.

“Look at this sexy man,” says one female participant. “Nice smile, good body, balls just hanging out.”
