Discovery Channel has lost its moral compass and should be ashamed to air nudity and call it entertainment.
Not so long ago, One Million Moms contacted the Discovery Channel and sponsors regarding the program “Naked And Afraid.” 1MM is now revisiting this issue because it is still on the air and especially because its timeslot has moved to air earlier in the evening at 4:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. CT. Parents are under the assumption that the Discovery Channel is safe and educational, but this is not true.
The show “Naked And Afraid” has cast members who are dropped in the jungle with no food, no shelter and no clothes. The two humans selected, one male and one female, must work as a team but they have never met before in their lives. The program shows them stripped naked, blurring out frontal body parts but never blurring out their backsides. Even though the frontal body parts are blurred out, showing so much skin is considered soft porn. In cold temperatures, they must survive by using each other’s body heat, pressing their bare bodies together to keep warm.
The network has decided that a five-hour marathon of “Naked And Afraid” on Wednesday is a good idea. This decision to air a program full of nudity from the time school lets out until time for bed is harmful to the cast members and their families, and to all children and families that happen to view the show. This ultimate sexual exploitation of families is disturbing and inexcusable.
Discovery Channel has lost its moral compass and should be ashamed to air nudity and call it entertainment. This program needs to be canceled immediately. Previews and promos for this show air all throughout the day and on many other networks.
Please send an email letter to Delta Faucet and Pedigree (Mars, Inc.) asking that they no longer sponsor and support the Discovery Channel unless the program “Naked And Afraid” is canceled. Urge advertisers to place Discovery Channel on their "do not advertise" list in protest of pushing suggestive material directly into America's living rooms. Let them know the program is inappropriate and even the commercials are offensive, plus it portrays inappropriate content that their companies would probably not desire to be associated with.
