Know Your Enemy

"The programme's part of a season on Channel 4 called the Campaign for Real Sex, like the Campaign for Real Ale, but with less ale and more sex, and hopes to 'reclaim sex from pornography'. [Ralph] Lee [Channel 4's Head of Factual Programming] said that the show is an opportunity for people who feel that their sex lives are not represented in the media to show the public what normal sex is like. I'm sorry, Ralph, I don't know what kind of sex you have, but 'normal sex' is not having sex in a box in front of a live studio audience and then talking to Mariella Frostrup about it afterwards."

Bridget Christie hits the nail on the head with regard to Channel 4's extraordinary new show Sex Box. A concept apparently lifted straight out of Alan Partridge's notebook of programme ideas - a shame he never got to pitch it to Tony Hayers.
