Huh? What??

We know there's some pretty crazy television in the U.S. (and most of it happens to be on TLC), but a new BBC show called Cherry Healey: Like A Virgin hosted by Cherry Healey (above) is being criticized by Brits for its crudeness.

The show discusses oral sex and uses the F-word, but that's not our main concern.

It's when show reality show apparently follows a 17-year-old girl to get a bikini wax in preparation for losing her virginity while on holiday.

So irresponsible! Especially since the show is apparently aimed at a teenage audience.

Vivienne Pattison of TV watchdog Mediawatch says:

"The show is ­terrible, almost a freak show. It’s also irresponsible, inappropriate, disturbing and even exploitative towards some of those featured in it. For a program clearly aimed at a teenage audience it is extremely irresponsible not to include any ­discussion of safe sex.

The BBC should not screen this program. It seems to me that they are just trying to set new boundaries and to do this at 9pm when a lot of young people will still be up is horrendous."

She has a valid point. Discussing sex among consenting adults is one thing, but exploiting a minor is a whooole other level.

Not sure if we approve.
