A Dutch television program has come under fire for showing naked adults undressing in front of children.
The show, Simply Naked, should be educational, say the makers.
It is also about teaching children bodily functions and showing that bodies come in all different shapes and sizes.

Television presenter Edson’s father Graca said, “The goal is to teach children that every body is different and that not all bodies are perfect.”
The show is based on the Danish show Ultra Smider Tøjet (Ultra Strips Down). It’s now in its second season.
What is happening on the show
In each episode, a group of children between the ages of 10 and 12 were invited to watch adults undress.

One apparently said, “This is not a show I have to see.”
Another reportedly said, “It felt a little uncomfortable at first.”
The spokesman for NTR, the public channel it airs on, has defended the show.
Her spokesman said, “The children knew exactly what was going to happen and could always tell how they felt during the program.
“We were expecting a little turmoil. Not everyone will think this is for kids and that is fine. It is up to the parents to decide if their children can watch. “
Right-right FvD leader Thierry Baudet said the program “comes close to promoting pedophilia”.
Is that normal in Denmark?
In the meantime, the original version has also been subjected to public scrutiny in Denmark.
However, a Danish parenting expert, Sofie Münster, said that this was just a reflection of Danish parenting.
Sofie said: “We recognize the importance of a bruise.
“Danish parents generally prefer to expose children rather than shield them.”
In 2014, Denmark amazed animal lovers when they euthanized a healthy young male giraffe at Copenhagen Zoo.
They killed the giraffe named Marius, hacked him up and fed him a pride of lions from the zoo.
And all of this was done in front of a group of school children who were sitting nearby.
