The View host Sunny Hostin starts a VERY risque on-air chat about ‘pretty PENISES’ and intimate piercings as she reveals her ‘obsession’ with raunchy HBO dating show Naked Attraction
The British series, which is hosted by Anna Richardson, sees singletons meeting for the first time in their birthday suits in a bid to score a date based on their bare bodies alone.
When Whoopi Goldberg confirmed the show is now available to watch on Max, an ’embarrassed’ Sunny, 54, revealed that she and her husband Emmanuel had ‘binged’ it over the weekend – and even found it educational.
‘I have to admit, and I’m very embarrassed to admit, that Manny and I got so obsessed with this show that we binged it yesterday and we watched all eight episodes,’ she said, before adding: ‘And I learned things I have never heard of in my life.’
Whoopi, 67, was keen to hear more and when she asked what Sunny had learned, Ana Navarro blurted out: ‘Ohhhhh please, here goes the Catholic! The repressed Catholic!’

Ignoring Ana’s joke, Sunny asked Whoopi: ‘Have you heard of a Prince Albert piercing?’ to which the Oscar-winning star simply replied: ‘Yeah.’
‘I didn’t know about that! I didn’t know about that!’ Sunny shouted out as Whoopi fired back: ‘Why would you?’
Ana then piped up again and said: ‘I had no idea this show existed. I have been very busy watching the Great British Baking Show, where the sexiest thing you see is pigs in a blanket!
‘So this seems even worse to me than Naked and Afraid, this is like naked and well lit!’ she joked as Whoopi suggested: ‘Not naked and well hung?’
‘There’s a lot of that going on too! There’s a lot of things…’ Sunny added with a cheeky grin.
Naked Attraction, which debuted in 2016 on UK broadcaster Channel 4, sees one person tasked with picking a date from six potential suitors, whittling them down as different parts of their bodies are slowly revealed from the toes up.
When two dates remain the person picking then strips off to make their decision before heading off on a date – this time fully clothed.
Sara Haines was shocked by the concept, adding: ‘I don’t feel confident naked, it might be my own body dysmorphic disorder, but I’m not go and give my most vulnerable self and say, “oh by the way, let’s just go and strip on out!”
‘The other thing is, the human body, there are parts that are beautiful… a penis is not one of them and I would say the vagina is barely above that!’ she added.
But Sunny was having none of it and divulged: ‘There were pretty penises in that show!’ as Whoopi started ringing a bell that had been placed on the table.

Turning to the show’s executive producer Brian Teta, Whoopi yelled out: ‘I just wanna say, you were worried about me?!’ as the live studio audience burst out laughing.
However, Sunny wasn’t quite done yet and told viewers: ‘Do yourselves a favor, it’s on Max! It’s eye-opening!’
Conservative watchdog group, the Parents Television Council has slammed HBO/Max for adding the show to its service, branding it an ‘exploitative, pornographic program’.
A statement read: ‘There is no doubt children will be able to easily access Naked Attraction, the purpose of which is to shock and titillate the audience with uncensored and explicit nudity.
‘And in a new low for HBO, the show fully exploits its own participants, somehow convincing them that their exploitation for the purpose of dating is right and good.
‘HBO has now lifted its own veil, revealing that it is and always was a pornography channel.’
Sunny’s saucy comments come just days after Joy Behar accused her of ‘faking orgasms’ during a debate on the show last week.
‘If Richard Gere wanted me to become a Buddhist yogi, I probably would do it!’ Sunny joked, before adding: ‘Look at Richard Gere!’
Referring to her own 25-year marriage, she revealed that she has ‘pretended to do a lot of things,’ to which Joy replied: ‘Did you really?’
‘Absolutely. I told Manny… I mean I am a faithful person and Catholic… I told him I went to church every single Sunday,’ Sunny said.
Alyssa Farah Griffin asked: ‘You don’t? I assumed you did!’ to which Sunny added: ‘I stopped going every Sunday!’
Whoopi found the whole conversation rather comical as Sara hugged her and laughed

But Joy had to take things one step further and blurted out: ‘Sunny, I bet you’ve…’ before turning to the live studio audience and asking: ‘Don’t you think she fakes orgasms? Tell me, do you?’
A rather unimpressed looking Sunny pursed her lips and fired back: ‘Well, I don’t have to, Joy. I’m one of the lucky ones.’
The rest of the panel and the live studio audience gasped in shock at the cheeky exchange as Whoopi told everyone: ‘You can’t unhear this. I’m just telling you, you cannot unhear anything you’ve heard today. It’s going to be with you the rest of the day!’
