Dating Naked: Playing For Keeps — Dare To Date Bare … Again.

Last season, VH1 took dating to a whole new level with the series, Dating Naked where brave singles bared their bodies in the search for love. Host Amy Paffrath shared that for some of the show’s participants, being physically vulnerable allowed some participants to share the deep, dark crannies of their personalities, in addition to flashing their naughty bits. And to be honest, the TV experiment worked: the series boasts one wedding (so far) and several serious relationships — which is a better success ratio than any TV dating show I can think of. This season, TV’s favorite nude dating […]

Dating Naked: the Lost Episode Recap

Of course, this episode isn’t really lost. This is the show’s pilot, something that was created by the producers to serve as a sales vehicle to VH1. I have seen images of the pilot since this summer when VH1 first contacted me about covering the show (I wrote an article for July’s Channel Guide Magazine, so I interviewed Amy Paffrath in May.) and I’ve been wondering if and when we’re going to meet the woman with the dark, curly hair and wondering if any of the couples clicked. I also have been wondering what changed between the pilot and the […]

Vh1’s Dating Naked Wedding: Recap

I totally cry at weddings. Good weddings, bad weddings, trashy weddings, so I’m pretty sure I’m going to cry during tonight’s  Wedding.  But I guess it’s not really a wedding, because (obviously) Ashley and Alika wanted their families there for the real deal (and to wear clothes) so this is a naked love ceremony.   I never thought it would be Ashley and Alika getting married, but to hear Ashley describe meeting her soul mate, it is incredibly sweet and you realize how obviously perfect they are for each other. And to see flash backs to their first meeting is […]

Dating Naked Wedding – Preview

Tonight on Dating Naked, we’ve been cordially been invited to a wedding! So is this actually called Wedding Naked, or Naked Wedding? And, is there a skin-flick already by that name? (I’m too afraid to type either phrase into Google to check.) And if the wedding guests hook up with each other, is it Dating Naked at a naked wedding? My brain hurts. Thankfully, we can watch tonight’s love-fest (officially titled, Dating Naked: The Wedding) in the fully-clothed comfort of our homes, but if you’re so moved by the displays of love, feel free to strip down. Ashley, an artist […]

Dating Naked Episode 9 Recap: Sean and Juliet

Tonight, it’s Dating Naked episode 9 and two more hopefuls search for love by going on a series of naked dates. Let’s hope this week’s guy is a better judge of character than last week’s Mike, who claimed he was over dating party girls and ends up with, a stripper-y party girl. (And I might add for helium-voiced Stephanie, if you’re going to appear on TV wearing baby pink lipstick, perhaps  check out Crest WhiteStrips. Pink is a tricky color to wear if your teeth are yellow.) But let’s worry about this week, because last week is old news.   […]

Dating Naked Episode 6 Recap: Greg and Ashley

Is it strange that I look forward to strangers getting naked and going on televised dates? I’m actually starting to buy into the possibility that people can meet under bizarre and unusual circumstances and forge a connection. My husband and I met reaching into a garbage can filled with beers at a college frat party. My parents met in SCUBA diving class at the local YMCA. Why can’t people find love on a naked reality show? Maybe I’m just a twisted romantic, but I’d like to hope that anyone can find love anywhere. Anyway, let’s meet the hopeful lovers on […]

Dating Naked Episode 5 Recap: Mike and Candace

We’re back, watching VH1’s Dating Naked Episode 5. This week, we meed Mike, a 27 year-old accountant from Long Island, New York. This former fat kid went from blubber to buff but this now hard-body is more interested what’s inside than out. Candace is a 27 year-old tomboy from Post Falls Idaho. She likes to get dirty and wants a man who likes to get dirty too. She looks like actress Julia Stiles or MMA sexy-badass Ronda Rousey. Candace: “I can’t wait to see Mike naked.” Their date, a jungle ropes course sounds like so much fun, especially for a […]
