Channel 4’s latest show takes entertainment to new lengths

Me and My Penis, Channel 4If you’re the sort of person who likes to see lots of willies on TV, you lucked out last Monday on Channel 4. It came on the back of (if you’ll pardon the expression) last year’s Channel 4 female equivalent The Top 100 Vaginas, where women told their “intimate, shocking, moving, powerful or funny stories about how their vaginas have shaped their lives.” The mind boggled. But in my case, that was all.

Channel 4 considers that part of its remit is to shock, hence this sort of cockumentary. Naked Attraction, which I reviewed earlier in the year is another example of the genre. I wrote: “It surely can’t be too long before our TV shows feature full naked sex, including penetration, and there are no bars on what people say at all. TV executives will argue it’s the only way to compete with audiences on the internet, and given the decline in TV audiences, you can see their point.”

Well, Me and My Penis didn’t quite go that far, but it did show, for the first time on UK TV a fully erect member. Several actually, just for good measure.
