Naked Education S01E02

There have been over a thousand complaints about the programme. Well, there were bound to be some. One person was concerned about four adult men showing their naked bodies to a group of schoolchildren. They said they do not need to see naked strangers to learn about the body. I somehow think they haven’t understood the point of the programme.

Growing up, I learnt about the body and sex from diagrams. At no point did we ever learn that the male body comes in all shapes and sizes. In a conversation with the kids, they thought the male body was perfect pecs, abs and muscles.

Looking at muscular bodies on social media often bears no resemblance to what they look like in the mirror, and there is growing pressure on boys to look like this ideal image of a man. More boys are growing up with body dysmorphia, leading to severe mental health issues.

There was also a part of the programme where Luke, a nine-year-old quad-amputee, who lost his limbs to meningitis, talks about losing his limbs and what helps him keep going. He talks to an adult quad-amputee who doesn’t let it stop doing anything. Listening to him speak, he sounds so inspiring.
