Man Who Can't Orgasm Explains Why He Poses Naked In London

There are two equally intriguing aspects to the story of this man, who appeared on This Morning today.

The first is that, under the moniker thenakedprofessor, he posts pictures on Instagram of him standing naked in front of iconic London landmarks with philosophical musings in the captions.

The second is that he is unable to orgasm. Check out the clip here:

In a conversation with hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, the man - whose name is Ben - explained that he suffers from 'delayed ejaculation'.

The third most common sexual disorder, most men with the condition - which is assumed to be psychological - take much longer to orgasm than normal. For Ben, however, it seems that ever since his lost his virginity 18 years ago, he has been unable to orgasm.

He told the hosts that despite numerous different approaches to solving his condition, including seeing doctors and undergoing hypnotherapy, 'nothing had worked'.

The other side of this peculiar coin is his Instagram account, which now has some 20,000 followers and which prompted a slew of questions from the TV show's hosts.

First, Ruth asked him if he'd been on the receiving end of any bad reactions from people regarding his photographs, to which he replied that hadn't been the case.

"I'm really lucky," he answered. "I haven't had any negativity whatsoever, which is great - and if I do, that's fine, people are very entitled to their opinion."

"These are very public places," Ruth then continued. "So are you doing this very early in the morning when no one's around?"

He explained: "Yeah, we're really careful not to offend anyone so we do it when no one's around."

More interestingly, perhaps, is the fact that it's not actually illegal for him to be taking those photographs. When Eamonn asked him if he'd ever been caught, Ben explained: "It's not illegal to be naked in public, it's illegal to cause offence. So as long as no one's there..."

The idea behind his naked photos, he explained, is to demonstrate the fragility of the human condition.

"I started to embrace freedom and vulnerability," he said. "The image represents the vulnerability."

Well, I suppose it's one way to spend your time.
