On channel 4 tonight there will be a “documentary” with pictures of erect penises(?). Will anyone be watching? Is this the start of full on porn on terrestrial television? I might watch just to remind myself of what I’ve been missing! What do you all think? If I said my remark was tongue in cheek it might be misconstrued 🤭😂😳

I’m glad you warned me. I remember when I mistook the show Naked Attraction in TV menu For the Fatal Attraction film 🤣
I didn’t like it but kept watching 🙄

Gosh, bit too scary for . Don't have a telly.

I do wonder sometimes though. All part of nature I suppose...

Hmm... erect penises aren't the prettiest of things, are they? I might have a quick look, though........

I thought this was going to be a double entendre and it was going to be about the building of the Eiffel Tower etc.

One to miss I think 😂😂😂

I must just take a sneaky look at that whilst my husband has his nightly bath! But, in all honesty, I think that the “standing to attention” is a step too far for tv.

Another occassion when I'm glad that I don't watch tv anymore.

I'd much rather have a cup of tea thank you very much.

I much prefer a hint of naughtiness a la Burt Reynolds in Cosmopolitan in the seventies, than full on nudity.

BlueBelle Mon 31-Aug-20 11:34:17

Bit too far but I might take a peek if there’s nothing interesting on of course just to remind myself
What a strange thing to put on TV I ve never watched it but couldn’t get my head around that pimple popping title

Dear God. I thought that Naked Attraction was bad enough for when it first began I merely glanced and hurriedly changed channels because I couldn't believe this sort of rubbish would interest anyone. What a sad state of affairs that programmes have been reduced to showing depravity at its worst. Why ??

I must certainly be the odd one out because I'd rather watch the furniture restorer and the bargains he gets driving around the country----or the gold/ opal mining in Oz. Things of interest and leave others to watch the depraved society that this country is becoming.

Mama Mia's on tonight anyway. I saw it 2 years ago and enjoyed it with friends at the cinema, so volume up grin News and bed !

I see from my paper's TV guide that it is "a serious-minded documentary" and "hugely welcome" (their words, not mine).

An artist takes intimate portraits to help the men discuss related stories/issues.

If it helps male viewers, fine. I shall give it a miss.

I thought it was illegal, but obviously not.

Illte Mon 31-Aug-20 11:40:31

Are they doing anything, you know like puppetry, or just standing there?

A bit dull I would have thought.

eazybee Mon 31-Aug-20 11:41:41

And to quote 'Pam' in one of Richard Stillgoe's (?)songs:

'I saw one in a book and I was not impressed.'

geekesse Mon 31-Aug-20 11:41:57

Just a thought...

If erect penises become common sights on TV such that young people get used to seeing them, flashers would lose their power to shock, and think what a good thing that might be for the long-term mental health of the nation :-)

Luckylegs Mon 31-Aug-20 11:46:22

I thought it was one of Victoria Woods’ songs, eazybee?

lemongrove Mon 31-Aug-20 11:46:25

I think men are more interested than women, they like to know if theirs is normal.Also any man with erectile problems may like to check it out.Plus a few GNers of course😁
For those of us watching re-runs of Downton or too busy to tune in Bluebell you owe it to us to compile a report for tomorrow.

jaylucy Mon 31-Aug-20 11:48:44

I didn't think that was allowed on tv as it's classed as porn ?
Don't think I'd bother watching - most unattractive!!

Nortsat Mon 31-Aug-20 11:55:03

Not my cup of tea ...

NotSpaghetti Mon 31-Aug-20 11:58:09

Callistemon I also thought it was a thread about buildings!

Jaxjacky Mon 31-Aug-20 12:27:41

Blebellwoukd you could’ve put the time 😏
Seriously, depends on the context, we all have a choice of what we watch, or of course, the off switch. I don’t personally have an issue, part of life and make a change from women’s breasts.

Marydoll Mon 31-Aug-20 12:29:44

Not for me either. Not even sure why we have a thread about it. confused

lovebeigecardigans1955 Mon 31-Aug-20 12:34:23

Well, I might watch it out of curiosity!

Bluebellwould Mon 31-Aug-20 12:35:52

Marydoll, I was feeling mischievous 🤪
