Meeting complete strangers while in the buff isn’t just a recurring nightmare anymore. It’s reality!

Reality TV, that is. On VH1’s wacky new venture Dating Naked, singles looking for love – or just looking to look – let it all hang out in hopes of meeting the one. Set up on multiple nude dates, contestants must choose the person they’re most compatible with.

While some appear extremely nervous, others take a liking to going full monty. “Usually it takes me three or four dates to see my girl naked,” one contestant says. “This was such a time saver.”

From surfing to horseback riding (ouch!), couples get to know each other inside and (mostly) out while vacationing on a picturesque island. Thanks to some well-placed blurred lines, viewers don’t have to get to know them too well.

One thing’s for sure: Going in for a kiss at the end of the date is far less risky than trying for a hug.

Dating Naked premieres Thursday, July 17, at 9/8c on VH1. Watch an exclusive extended preview below. TV ShowsFull Episode VideoReality TV Shows
