Presenter and critic Mariella Frostrup is gearing up for one of the oddest jobs on TV, thanks to Channel 4 signing her up to interview couples literally seconds after they've finished having sex for a television show.
There won't be any actual sex shown during the programme, mind. The three couples of different ages and sexual persuasions with have it off with each other in a soundproofed box, then, when one or both of them has finished to some degree of satisfaction, Mariella will be on hand to (a) hand them some tissues or a sock to clean up with and (b) ask them questions about the experience along with a panel of experts.
The show will feature as part of Channel 4's Campaign For Real Sex season, a strand of shows designed to examine how today's omnipresent pornography has changed our attitudes to doing it. It'll be broadcast on October 7th. [Telegraph]
