The reality dating show ante has just been upped by Sex Box, the UK series now coming stateside. Yes, that is a real show and WE tv will be airing it.
The network has ordered nine, one-hour episodes of Sex Box. In this therapy-based series, couples go into a camera-free, soundproof box to have sex.
After that, they emerge for a post-coital breakdown with a panel of experts.
In an era where Jessie Nizewitz goes on Dating Naked and then sues VH1 for showing her naked, and people get Married at First Sight, the competition is stiff.
No pun intended. But get ready to think outside the box … pun intended.
“Sex Box is one of the most unique and compelling show concepts we’ve ever seen, and we can’t wait to bring it to WE tv,” said Marc Juris, the network’s president.
“Our couples will get a once-in-a-lifetime experience, while viewers will get the kind of bold, break-through-the-clutter programming they increasingly associate with WE tv.”
Currently, we associate WE tv with the non-stop nonsense that is Kendra on Top and that’s pretty much it, so he may be overselling it. Still … Sex Box!
Look for it in early 2015 … and just try to look away.
