BBC Upholds Full-Frontal Male Nudity on Television

The BBC Trust has ruled invalid a complaint about a television show "My Penis and Everyone Else's".
The complainant claimed that the broadcast of male genitalia was "inappropriate" as it could have been seen by children and that a display of penises and the time spent showing them was "gratuitous" and "excessive".

But the trust said that while the programme had contained "what some of the audience would have considered challenging material, there was a clear editorial purpose for it" and that "adequate" steps had been taken to flag the content beforehand.
