Could new show Sex Tape be the most controversial reality series yet?
We were just starting to think reality TV couldn’t get any more shocking, but a new “provocative” social experiment series might just change our minds.
Viewers were astonished when Channel 4 series Sex Box first aired on screens; a show that saw couples enter a soundproof box and get it on in front of a live studio audience. Fronted by Steve Jones and sexologist Goedele Liekens, Sex Box created a bit of a stir amongst the British public with its graphic explanations and raunchy demonstrations… one episode even saw a man showcase his oral techniques on an iPad app!
Well, apparently viewers haven’t seen anything yet as new show Sex Tape is set to take things one step further.
Entertainment One has partnered with Israel-based Armoza Formats to co-produce the new series, which has been labelled as “a provocative new hour-long social experiment reality series”.
Taking on the same format as Sex Box, Sex Tape will see paired-up strangers produce their own sex tapes over the duration of a week, before meeting with an expert to watch back the explicit footage and discuss.
The two companies are creating the programme for the US market, but rumour has it that Armoza is also developing the format for the UK along with the rest of Europe. So hopefully we will all get to enjoy this wonderfully weird concept!
