Sex Box: Live Sex On TV? 5 Examples Of Bleurgh Broadcasting [PHOTOS/VIDEOS]
Evidently the small screen is going through radical transformations of a revolutionary phase through its ground-breaking reality shows. A new show called 'Sex Box', to be aired on UK's Channel 4, will interview couples right after intercourse. To participate in the show, the makers of 'Sex Box' have selected three couples, two straight and one gay.
Sounds shocking! So let us keep up the excitement with more surprising details:
The channel has given clarification that this is going to be a pre-recorded show and there will be no nudity. The channel will also have a panel of experts who will talk about the behavioural transformation of the couple participating in the show.
Sex Box will feature the couples making love in a sound proof place which wouldn't reveal any footage about their intimate moments. The first couple will be featured on the episode airing on October 7, 2013.
The objective of the show is to "reclaim sex" from the porn-merchants offering both education and excitement to viewers. Mariella Frostrup, a skilled and intelligent journalist will host the show.
"The sex we increasingly see online bears little relation to the real experiences of real people". Frostrup said in an interview with www.independent.co.uk.
