There Is A New Reality Show In Which People Have Sex In A Box

And this is everything you need to know about it.

1. Not even this title card could aptly warn of what's to come on WE tv's new series Sex Box.

The series is based on a British show of the same name that opened to 1.1 million viewers, 200,000 of whom tuned out in the first 15 minutes.

The series is based on a British show of the same name that opened to 1.1 million viewers, 200,000 of whom tuned out in the first 15 minutes.

2. This is what the eponymous sex box looks like.

Does it have a lid? I don't know.

3. The show features three experts "at the top of their field." The first is Fran Walfish.

WE tv

She's a "relationship psychotherapist to the rich and famous, published author, and keeper of Hollywood's bedroom secrets."

4. There's also Chris Donaghue.

WE tv

He's a "cutting-edge sex therapist and controversial voice in the study of relationships in the 21st century."

5. And Yvonne Capehart.

WE tv

This "renowned pastor and spiritual adviser to couples in serious crisis" is wearing a top in serious crisis, TBH.

6. With that exposition out of the way, the couple comes out. They discuss their relationship before the experts ask questions.

Walfish's hand gesture will haunt your nightmares.

7. And there are really deep breakthroughs.

Capehart gets him because his hair is equally as confusing as her pink top.

8. Soon, advice is handed down.

And it's all about the box.

9. Then, the time comes...

10. And we learn it's really what's after the sex box that counts.

11. Then, the couple enters the box and it immediately turns red.

Danger. Danger for all of us.

12. And they are timed!

Meanwhile, the experts alternate between talking about their clients outside of Sex Box and commenting on the Sex Box couple's time.

13. Then, the box turns white and the couple emerges...


14. In silky pajamas, per the experts' earlier request.

There is no way any human feels good on national TV in these ensembles.

15. And then, the experts ask the couple do some rating.

In this case, the male partner was not satisfying his female partner, so both the husband and wife rated his performance when it came to pleasing her.

16. Apparently, a C+ is a solid grade in the bedroom.

The husband also made his wife come first, hence the not-so-casual leg lift.

17. And with that, they are on their way to having slightly better-than-average sex!

Hopefully, they go back into the sex box to change, but that is not known.

18. There's also a Sex Box correspondent who does man-on-the-street sex interviews.

WE tv

This Jennifer Love Hewitt look-alike apparently took her interviewing cue (and bangs cue) from the '90s HBO docuseries Real Sex.

19. And things like this are said.

I mean...

20. Then, the experts do it all over again with two more couples in the hour-long episode.

Rinse and repeat.

21. And finally, we catch up with the couples a month later.

But we wouldn't spoil that for you here.

Sex Box premieres on Friday, Feb. 27, at 10 p.m. on WE tv.
