Video: Celebs Get Intimate At The Dating Naked Premiere Party

Thursday night VH1 premiered the first episode of the most radical dating show television has ever aired, Dating Naked, and earlier this week the debut of the show was celebrated with a premiere party in NYC.

Held at the swanky Gansevoort Hotel, Hit The Floor Katherine Bailess and Robert Christopher Riley, Real Housewives of NY’s Kelly Bensimon, Orange Is The New Black’s Jackie Cruz, and at one point the shirtless Perez Hilton were just a few of the celebrities in attendance, as well as a handful of bold daters from the show.

Check out how awkward it gets on the the red carpet above and flick through a few photos that captured both the best moments of the night and the Dating Naked pedicabs — complete with naked passengers — roaming the streets of NYC earlier in the week:
