A racy new show called “Sex Box” is premiering this week on Women Entertainment TV.
“Sex Box” has real life couples enter a sound proof box on a set in front of a panel of judges and a live audience. The couples come out of the box after they have made love and give details about the experience to three “sexperts.”
The three judges then give advice to the pair on how to work through their intimacy issues and improve their sex lives. The contestants on the show are a mix of gay, straight, married, and unwed couples.
Since WE TV annouced the show’s February 27 premiere, it has recieved a lot of push back from cable watchdogs. Groups like the Parents Television Council think the show far exceeds the limit of decency for cable television shows.
“If some adults want to watch a program like that, let them pay for it. But forcing it into the basic cable bundle and making parents and families pay for it is an outrage,” PTC President Tim Winter said.
“Sex Box” first started as a British television series in 2013. After many critics found the show dull and uncomfortable to watch, it was not renewed for a second season.
The American show will likely see the same low ratings as its predecessor, but PTC’s Melissa Henson said cable companies are crossing a fine line by even allowing it to air.
“I’m not confident that its going to be successful here in the United States, but even if it flops the fact that it was able to air in the first place sets a dangerous precedent,” she said.
Henson argues that by allowing this show on cable it won’t be long until other networks start breeching the current standards of what is acceptable to broadcast.
