"Sex Box", The TV Show Where People Have Sex In A Box, Is Back And Oh My Fucking God

Sometimes, British TV is too drunk and needs to be told to go home.

Posted on

The weirdest programme of 2013 was Sex Box, a Channel 4 show where people literally had sex in a box in front of a studio audience for some reason.

The show got terrible reviews and we all thought we would never see it again.

The show got terrible reviews and we all thought we would never see it again.

Until now. Sex Box is back because according to their survey we are SEXUALLY REPRESSED, as "70% of us want to have a more adventurous sex life."

Apparently Sex Box can help...with TWO SEX BOXES.

It's presented by Steve Jones (T4, X Factor USA) and sexologist Goedele Liekens.

And this is what each sex box looks like.

It contains a sexy lamp, a sexy coat hanger, and an entire shelf of lube. :/

Each couple has a sex problem they want fixed.

Great.

Great.

And it's Steve Jones' responsibility to ask members of the audience for tips before they enter the box.

This is like the worst Kilroy ever.

This is like the worst Kilroy ever.

Everyone has a very frank conversation about what their turn-ons and turn-offs are in the bedroom.

They then go into the box to have sex. Not weird at all.

There are also surveys throughout the show like this.

When the sex ends, the couple come out of the box and talk about the sex they had using non-sexy words, because we are British and talking about sex is weird.

If you think the show isn't fucked-up enough, they get people to have sex with each other for the first time.

PLEASE just casually make out at the latter end of a house party and then shag back at one of your houses like everyone else.

And...their mutual friends are in the audience.

These people didn't know that their friends would be having sex in the show. They came under the impression that their friends were on just to talk about sex.

And then their mutual friends get to see the couple just after they have had an orgasm in the sex box.

Imagine it being the early part of Spring and you're having sex in a box in a TV studio, before giving an interview about the sex you just had in front of your friends.IMAGINE.

This show is so fucking strange.

There's also a weird sequence in the show where someone dresses up like a penis and ejaculates confetti over members of the general public.

Why? I don't know. I literally don't know.

Well done, Channel 4, for making ‚Äča show about sex that makes us never want to have sex ever again.

Sex Box is on Mondays at 10pm. You can watch the first episode on All4.
