Annoying Things About the Paranormal with James Paradie: Naked Paranormal

A production company, Matador Content, is looking for paranormal investigators who want to take it to the next level. No, the next level is not going to forbidden places or creating new gadgets. Matador is asking paranormal investigators to do it in the nude.

According to an email sent by the production company, they want to put a new 'spin' on paranormal television shows.

‘For this paranormal investigating show, we are putting a different spin on paranormal investigating and we are looking for people and/or teams that would be interested in taking paranormal investigating to the next level by doing it in the nude,’ the email read.

I can't be any less disappointed in paranormal television shows than I am right now. The only paranormal related show that I would watch if there was nudity is Ghost Whisperer. Would totally watch it if Jennifer Love Hewitt let the puppies out to play! But when it comes to so-called paranormal reality TV it just feels like a publicity stunt.

Here's why it won't work: 1. You get dudes on there and they have women nude, they're not going to be able to take their eyes off, let's say, Jennifer's ta-tas to do anything. Can you imagine them doing infrared. Johnny-boy is going to have that camera stuck on Jen's bare tits and ass for the whole duration of the show. Realistically speaking here. Also, more than likely this show will be on cable television and cable is going to censor out the yum-yum areas. So, why in the hell would anyone be invested in watching something that we can't see?!

Another excerpt from the email: 

‘This idea was brought to our company after research on paranormal investigation teams in history doing it in the nude and we want to see if their reasoning for doing it in the nude really does get spirits to communicate easier.’

Yeah, we laugh at these groups who do this and not with them either. They're making a mockery of this field. I remember some guy, apparently he's famous, used to do this (probably still does). What's his name? He has this inflated ego, sells t-shirts with his stupid slogan on it; has a bunch of sheep-like followers. I'm not being sarcastic. I really can't remember the douche bag's name! Anyways, he used to do this and we all laughed at him as well. If they were doing this for charity-sakes, fine, so be it. But most of them do it just snicker at each others nudity, make money off of it, and that's it.

I'm not trying to be a stick in the mud either. I love the naked female body just as much as the next lonely pervert and I have the internet history to prove it! (Maybe not as much as the regular lonely pervert. I do have respect at least), but what are you trying to accomplish? This is not going to accomplish anything in the paranormal. Hell, it will give our haters another reason to laugh at us. But I'm sure Matador doesn't care. This is a quick money grab for them.

The bottom line is the idea is fucking stupid, to put it bluntly. I'm sure the majority of the paranormal field loves their fair-share of boobs, asses, and for the ladies (and certain gentlemen) the ding-dongs, but they want to watch it for the spirits and exploration.

Get some spirits nude and we're in business.
