What a damn silly programme, hosted by a woman encouraging woman to be "natural" while she has dyed hair.

And, yet again using the word vagina, when it it should be vulva.

Just to add, didn't watch the whole programme, only saw the last 5/ 10 minutes while waiting for another programme.

I can sort of see the point of the message, in that it might educate some people (both male and female) into understanding what is normal, rather than believing that what is often portrayed in "celeb" photos and of course porn, but really!

I’m not really that interested in other people’s bits and pieces.
Don’t usually ask how they are decorated.

What was the programme phoenix? I was watching the ever entertaining Marriage at First Sight, Australia, followed by an episode of series three Line of Duty.

I didn’t see it phoenix but it sounds as riveting as the programme that was on last week which was devoted entirely to the male anatomy. I had fallen asleep in front of the tv and couldn’t quite believe what I was seeing when I sat up bleary eyed. I wasn’t even wearing any pearls I could clutch!

I thought this was about a gardening programme!

I enjoyed " The body in the library ". Good old Agatha Christie.

Body in the Library for me too👏

Actually, although I uphold a woman's right to have her body as she wants, I'd always be a bit suspicious of a man who preferred a pre-pubscent female body.

Hear hear, Illte! That's always bothered me too.

I don’t think all women and girls do it for men.
Some of them do it for themselves, preferring the look.

I watched this programme when it was first shown, and I found it amusing but with a serious message. The young presenter was speaking to her own generation, all of whom seem to have grown up with the idea of a Brazilian wax being normal. The presenter wanted women to think about their bodies and not just go along with a trend. My DH and I found the programme interesting and thought-provoking.
