A video excerpt from a Danish children’s show has surfaced on social media showing five fully nude, though censored, adult performers who then explain their nudity to the audience, made up of children between the ages of 11-13.
The show, broadcast in Denmark, translates as “Ultra Strip Down” and was praised by critics and even won an award at least year’s Danish TV show festival. In the excerpt circulating social media, five adults strip down in front of their young audience and answer questions from their curious coming of age live viewers.
The show even included a transgender adult who told the young audience: “[I’m] not a boy, not a girl, I’m a bit of everything.”
Part of “Ultra Strip Down’s” message was to reinforce body positivity while challenging stereotypes of the “perfect body.”
“This is a CHILDREN’s show on Danish TV entitled “Ultra Strips Down”, produced by Danish branch of Warner Bros. The show claims to teach kids about different body types by exposing them to naked adults! Why?” tweeted outspoken pundit, Obianuju Ekeocha.

The show’s host, Jannik Schow, who came up with the idea for the show with the producer, rejected claims from naysayers and said “Perhaps some people are like, ‘Oh, my G**, they are combining nakedness and kids. But this has nothing to do with sex, it’s about seeing the body as natural, the way kids do.”
The revelation of the show’s sensitive content comes at a time when French film, ‘Cuties,’ was to be hosted on Netflix received massive push back on social media from all corners of the political and social spectrum while critics and verified media personalities steadfastly defended some questionable shots due to the deeper subtext the film conveyed.
Furthermore, Netflix boosted the Sundance Film Festival award won by Cuties, whose co-founder is currently behind bars after being convicted for sexually molesting a child in Utah.
