The not-so shocking shock of full-frontal nudity on German TV

The talk here this weekend is all about how the “Fleischpeitsche,” or “meat whip” of a highly respected actor made a not completely shock appearance Saturday night on national television during a German version of a “Celebrity Survivor” type show. The talk started as soon as the hour-long show The Jungle Camp, or officially, “Ich bin ein Star – Holt mich hier raus” (“I’m a star, get me out of here”) ended, about 11:15 p.m. It had been watched by one of every 10 Germans, meaning about 8 million viewers. By Sunday morning, news websites from around Germany were, hmmm, covering the news.
