The relationship therapy talk show, “Sex Box,” which has been adapted from UK television, has received a series order from WEtv for the U.S. audience. Read on to learn more about this development.
“Sex Box” has been given the greenlight for its first season, which will feature nine hour-long episodes on WEtv. The show, adapted from the UK show of the same name, is a talk show therapy series, where couples are enjoined to discuss their problems in the relationship with a panel of experts. They will also be given a chance to have sex inside a soundproof room in the middle of the stage. Getting intimate on the show is a requirement as they will have to discuss their sexual hang-ups with the panel of experts.
As the partners are inside the sex box, the panel will talk about their initial impressions and observations. As soon as they are done having sex, they will be seating with the experts for a heart-to-heart discussion.
“Scientists and researchers cite that people are more trusting and open in the moments immediately after sex due to the body’s natural release of oxytocin, also known as the ‘cuddle hormone’,” said WEtv president Marc Juris in a press statement published on Zap2it. Thus, couples therapy after the partners have become intimate would be the most effective. Juris also said that the show would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for couples.
The panel includes Dr. Fran Walfish, a celebrity therapist whose forte is in relationship psychotherapy; Dr. Chris Donaghue, a clinical sex therapist belonging to the Top 20 bracket among 600 sex therapist worldwide; and Dr. Yvonne Capehart, who is also a pastor and founder of Healed for Real, a ministry for women. These doctors have been featured in various news programs and TV shows for their expertise.
Comedian Danielle Stewart will also join the show to provide lighthearted commentaries and get the pulse of everyday couples. Her man-on-the-street interviews will be featured in between segment gaps on the show.
“Sex Box” is produced by WEtv, along with Relativity Television. The series will premiere in 2015.
