There’s a new wave of spicy shows that could make or break a relationship – should you really watch Love Island with your partner?Rex



Open House sees couples trying open relationships as they stay at a retreat hosted by Jess and Thom

SEXUAL fantasy surveys show threesomes come out on top for blokes, but not women.

This show puts those desires into action, with couples trying open relationships.

Why do people have sex? 9 reasons revealed

They stay at a retreat hosted by Jess, 24, and Thom, 33, who see nothing wrong with having sex with others, saying it “strengthens their bond”.

Not on your bucket list? Then give it a miss.

KATE’S VERDICT – The great sex experiment: “The danger here is some viewers will start to feel monogamy is uncool.

“Let me tell you, it’s really not. Watch for fun, but don’t feel obliged to invite the neighbours round for a live season finale.”

Channel 4 Press HandoutOn Naked Attraction single blokes and women pick potential dates based purely on how they look in their birthday suits[/caption]

IT is probably the one of the most unusual shows on television – where single blokes and women pick potential dates based purely on how they look in their birthday suits.

The Channel 4 show, hosted by Anna Richardson, then follows them to see if their instincts served them well when they meet – fully clothed – for a date.

Of course, we all say size doesn’t matter, but we cannot pretend we haven’t choked on our cuppa when seeing some of the body parts on this show.

It is impossible not to compare what we see on screen – from perfectly preened privates to bouncy breasts and sizable penises – with what is at home.

Could your relationship handle it, or is your evening viewing likely to end in a flop?

KATE’S VERDICT – Eye-popping body parts: “Research found women enjoy looking at naked female bodies just as much as men do, even if they identify as straight.

“So the possibilities for jealousy here are doubled. Swerve this and put a mirror by your bed instead.”



RuckasConversations With Friends has raunchy sex scenes featuring moody twentysomethings who cannot control their insatiable appetites[/caption]

REMEMBER Normal People? That raunchy bonkbuster that aired during lockdown and sparked an unofficial baby boom.

Well now BBC Three has launched Conversations With Friends, another novel-turned-series by Sally Rooney.

Watching the show’s raunchy sex scenes featuring moody twentysomethings who cannot control their insatiable appetites may prompt some uncomfortable soul-searching and make you ask yourselves, “Were we ever that hot for each other?”

Chances are, no you weren’t – no one was – but you cannot help putting your early days together under the microscope.

In Conversations With Friends, the lead characters are in a foursome with affairs and deceit aplenty.

Again, possibly not the best evening viewing for suspicious couples.

An awkward storyline with even more awkward sex scenes.

KATE’S VERDICT – Awkward sex scenes: “To last, relationships MUST move from unstable passion to predictable security.

“The further your sex life is from that of 20something students, the better it is. Turn this off and have an early night.”



Love Island tasks a group of men and women with saucy challenges in the hope they will meet The OneEroteme

TALL, tanned men with six packs, standing alongside curvaceous women, with never-ending legs and perky assets, it can only be Love Island.

The ITV reality show tasks a group of men and women with saucy challenges in the hope they will meet The One.

Take the annual Heart Racer challenge where half-naked islanders compete to perform the sexiest lap dance and see who raises their co-stars’ heart rates the most.

Cue your partner nagging you to strip to your stockings and suspenders for his own special show.

Then there are the debates that divide couples up and down the country every year.

From gaslighting and the rights and wrongs of flirting while “coupled up” to how soon is too soon for sex.

Just like the polarising issues on shows like Married At First Sight, it can be a minefield.

KATE’S VERDICT – Prepare to fall out: “Love Island could make waves in even the most committed couples. A 2019 survey found 39% of viewers fantasised about Islanders during sex with their actual partner.

“The fact that it’s reality TV makes us feel we’re only one dating-app swipe away from meeting our own Ovie or Maura in real life. Too close to home? Avoid.”



BBCThe Split follows divorce lawyers as they juggle work and their own dysfunctional relationships[/caption]

THIS is brilliant, but is it a show you should binge-watch while your other half is out?

Any couple that chooses to sit down together to watch a series about brutal break-ups and tangled webs of deceit needs a medal.

The BBC’s sex-packed legal drama follows divorce lawyers as they juggle work and their own dysfunctional relationships.

At the centre of it is Hannah, who is in a love triangle with husband Nathan and fellow lawyer Christie.

Series three, which aired last month and is available on iPlayer, will leave you in tears.

Avoid if your wedding vows are under strain.

KATE’S VERDICT – Divorce? Not tonight thanks: “Shows like this create the impression that every marriage will end. Not true! The UK divorce rate is falling.

“But, coupled with the recent introduction of no-fault, digital divorces, this show could inspire couples to break up.”



WONDERING if your other half will ever commit? This Netflix dating show could, or could not be, for you.

Hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, it focuses on six long-term couples who have come to an impasse where one party issues an ultimatum – to get married, or move on.

The couples spend time apart, mingling with the other couples and test their will-power by sleeping in the same bed as someone else.

They have the green light to cheat and must decide if they like it or not. A great way to decide whether to get married, right?

Channel 4’s Open House: The Great Sex Experiment has similar vibes – couples have threesomes to see if they like it.

KATE’S VERDICT – Commitment-phobes beware: “Watch this too soon into a relationship and it’ll seem like a hint; watch it a few years later, it’ll seem like an even bigger hint.

“Only safe to watch on your own, where you can cheer as the taken-for-granted partners finally find their backbone.”



STEAMY dreams can disturb the peace at home. Especially if the subject of the dreams is an ex!

Eight-part fantasy-charged Sex/Life on Netflix sees housewife Billie grapple between her perfect-but-boring marriage and the sexually fulfilling relationship with her player ex, Brad.

She has flashbacks of wild sex with her well-endowed ex-boyfriend and keeps a record in an erotic diary on her laptop, which husband Cooper reads. Uh oh!

Everyone has a past – an attractive ex or the one that got away – and this series could certainly make imaginations run wild.

But if it kicks you or your other half into upping your game in the bedroom, it could be for you.

KATE’S VERDICT – The one that got away: “If you’re ever in doubt, here’s the truth: NO, a secret sex blog about your well-hung ex is NOT an effective way to rescue a boring marriage.

“Stop wearing floor-length nighties to bed and start being honest about what you need. Done.”

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 173

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 258

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
