11 O’Clock Nudes

After arousing ire with its nudity show “Tutti-Frutti,” featuring a bevy of bare-breasted beauties and a guest couple doing an amateur striptease, Germany’s national commercial broadcaster RTL Plus has come up with “Erotic Clips for Woman.” The half-hour show, moderated by feminist Hella von Sinnen, shows handsome studs buck naked, justified on the grounds that what’s good for men is fine for women too.

The initial broadcast on Feb. 7 caused widespread indignation among politicians and church officials. The Munich tabloid “Abendzeitung” let its feelings be known with the front page banner: “Naked Men On TV: Violation Of Human Dignity.” Both shows are aired after 11 p.m. to comply with Germany’s rules to protect youth morals.
