He then tried to drink drive his car away from the luxury mansion where the show was filmed.

Pole dancer Grace Harrison, 24, told The Sun: “All you saw when the cameras were rolling was Steve drinking a few glasses of Prosecco with Jess in the yurt but behind the scenes it all kicked off.

 “Steve and Jess had shared a couple of bottles but when their date ended Steve was desperate for another drink and the producers deliberately put a limit on drinking so that the contestants don’t get out of control, but Steve wouldn’t take no for an answer.

“He kept asking and the next bottle didn’t come, and he was getting increasingly cross and kept saying to the production team, ‘where is the bottle that I asked for?’

 “He got told no, by the production staff, but wouldn’t let up. He started staying stuff like, ‘Who did they think they are? I’m a 40-year-old man, how dare they tell me what I can drink or not. How dare they control me. I’m a big boy. I’ll get my boys down here.’”

Grace encountered the fracas that followed on her way back from her own date.

The show aimed to pair sexually liberated singles with couples who were interested in experimenting with consensual non-monogamy.

Grace went on: “He kept going back and forth between the yurt and the production team then I bumped into him out the back after I’d been on a date, and he was fully kicking off then and he tried to get into his car.

“I heard screaming and shouting and he was trying to fight with the staff and they were trying to take his keys and remind him that he’d been drinking but he was having none of it.

 “They said, ‘You can’t drive. That would be drink driving and it’s illegal,’ and he was like, ‘I’m off. You can’t control me. I can do whatever I want.’

“No punches were thrown but there was a lot of scuffling.

 “The single lads had to get into his face a bit and reminded him that he’d told them earlier in the day that had a young daughter, so what the hell did he think he was doing.

 “Thankfully that seemed to work.”

Steve and Helen ended the series by concluding polyamory – the practice of engaging in multiple sexual relationships with the consent of all the people involved – wasn’t for them. 

And Grace is full of praise for how show bosses handled the situation. 

She added: “The staff and all the people filming were trying to help Steve calm down and he was being so horrible to them all.

“Eventually he stopped ranting and went to bed and filmed the last bit of the episode the following day with the in house intimacy therapist Dr Lori Beth Bisbey.”

Open House: The Great Sex Experiment ran for six episodes and finished earlier this month.

Couples were invited to explore and indulge in their fantasies in a luxury stately home, with an expert on hand.

Intimacy therapist Dr Lori Beth provided them with support and advice on how to open their relationships safely and healthily.

A spokesman for the show declined to comment, as did Steve.

Porn and Mental Health: The Challenges and Strategies for Coping in the Industry 0 178

Pornography is a billion-dollar industry that has gained widespread popularity across the globe. However, while it may be a source of entertainment for some, the industry can be challenging for performers’ mental health. The pressure to perform and meet the expectations of producers and viewers can take a toll on performers’ mental wellbeing. In this article, we’ll explore the challenges that the porn industry poses to mental health and strategies for coping with them.

The Challenges

  1. Stigma and Shame

The porn industry is still stigmatized, and performers can face a lot of shame and judgment from society. This can lead to a lot of stress and anxiety, making it difficult for performers to seek help and support when needed.

  1. Pressure to Perform

Performers in the porn industry are expected to meet certain expectations and perform at their best every time. This pressure can be overwhelming and can lead to feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem.

  1. Isolation and Loneliness

Performing in the porn industry can be a lonely experience, with performers spending long hours on set or on their own, away from friends and family. This can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness, which can take a toll on mental health.

  1. Trauma and Abuse

The porn industry is not immune to issues such as sexual harassment, assault, and exploitation. Performers may experience these traumatic events, leading to conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression.

Strategies for Coping

Seek Professional Help

Performers in the porn industry should seek professional help and support when they need it. There are many therapists and counselors who specialize in working with performers in the industry and can help with issues such as anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Practice Self-Care

Self-care is crucial for performers in the porn industry. Taking breaks when needed, exercising, and practicing mindfulness and meditation can help performers manage stress and promote mental wellbeing.

Surround Yourself with Supportive People

Having a supportive network of friends, family, and colleagues can make a big difference in performers’ mental health. Surrounding yourself with people who understand the challenges of the industry and offer non-judgmental support can help performers cope with the stresses of the job.

Address Trauma and Abuse

Performers who have experienced trauma and abuse in the industry should seek support and address these issues head-on. This may involve therapy, reporting incidents to the authorities, and taking legal action if necessary.


The porn industry poses significant challenges to performers’ mental health, from stigma and shame to pressure to perform and trauma and abuse. However, with the right strategies, performers can cope with these challenges and maintain good mental wellbeing. Seeking professional help, practicing self-care, surrounding yourself with supportive people, and addressing trauma and abuse are just a few strategies that can help performers in the porn industry maintain good mental health.

Navigating Consent and Boundaries in the Porn Industry: A Guide for Newcomers 0 165

Consent and boundaries are crucial aspects of the porn industry, and it’s essential for newcomers to understand how to navigate these issues. In this article, we’ll provide a guide for those who are new to the industry on how to approach consent and boundaries in a professional and respectful manner.

First and foremost, it’s important to understand that consent is always required in the porn industry. This means that every actor must give explicit and enthusiastic consent to any sexual act that is portrayed on camera. Consent can be given verbally or non-verbally, but it must always be clear and enthusiastic.

In order to ensure that consent is obtained, communication is key. Actors should have open and honest conversations with their scene partners and the director prior to filming. They should discuss what they are comfortable with and what their boundaries are, as well as any specific instructions or concerns.

It’s also important for actors to feel empowered to set their own boundaries and to speak up if they feel uncomfortable or unsafe during filming. This means that if an actor does not want to perform a particular act or if they feel that their boundaries are being pushed, they have the right to stop the scene and speak to the director about their concerns.

It’s also essential for actors to be aware of their own physical and emotional limits. This means that they should take breaks as needed, communicate with their scene partner and director about any discomfort or pain, and engage in self-care practices to ensure that they are physically and emotionally prepared for the demands of the job.

Finally, it’s important for actors to have a support system in place. This can include talking to other actors who have experience in the industry, seeking out counseling or therapy, and having trusted friends and family members who can provide emotional support.

Navigating consent and boundaries in the porn industry can be challenging, but it’s an essential part of maintaining a safe and respectful work environment. By following these guidelines, newcomers to the industry can ensure that they are approaching these issues in a professional and responsible manner.
