Me And My Penis Divides Viewers After Broadcasting Erect Penis On TV

Me and My Penis aired at 10pm and showed footage of eight erections and it aimed to tackle the taboo around penises.

Participants in the show opened up about various topics including their body image, sex, relationships and masturbation.

As you can probably imagine the TV show attracted a fair amount of discussion with some praising it for getting fellas to open up about their genitals and others thinking the show was a step too far.

One person praised Channel 4, writing: "Me and My Penis on Channel 4 was interesting. It's rare to see men being so open. Honest accounts of masculinity & self-esteem. Congratulations to everyone who appeared in the show and shared their stories."

Another wrote: "If you're missing Me and My Penis on Channel 4, it's a real shame. It's powerful, it's moving and it's about 20 years too late.

"Men's bodies are NEVER spoken about/celebrated in this way. Definitely a very important documentary that all men should watch."

But not everyone was impressed with one person writing: "Me and My Penis this show is not art. Ofcom need to do something about this. It's 10pm on bank holiday, imagine if kids stumble upon this. Unacceptable again from C4."

Another added: "All slim men with abs and big d***s... this show won't help men in the slightest."

The series was headed by artist Ajamu, who took photos of all the men involved.

Speaking to The Guardian, he said: "It's rare in the mainstream to hear men talk about their bodies and what it means to be male.

"It's also rare to see penises on TV. We are uncomfortable in this country talking about pleasure of the body. We still live in an erotophobic culture.

"Other cultures, in Asia and parts of Africa, have celebrated the penis historically, but there's something about this country that is still kind of backwards."

In an interview with Metro, Ajamu said he wanted the images from the documentary to 'normalise the penis; especially the erection'.

Me and My Penis is available to watch on All 4.
