Sex Tape: Couples with relationship problems bear all in new Channel 4 series


New Channel 4 TV series Sex Tape will see couples with relationship problems bear all.

They will follow a radical form of therapy in a bid to solve their relationships woes.

According to a 2017 survey by Relate, over two thirds of British adults claim to be dissatisfied with their sex lives.

Sex Tape arms couples going through a rough patch with personal cameras, to record their most intimate moments – from the rows and the make-ups, to what they get up to between the sheets.

Once they’ve made their ‘sex tape’, each pair sits down to watch, joined by two other couples and mediated by Relationship Therapist Anjula Mutanda, in a bid to discover whether the shared experience can bring them closer together and re-energise their intimacy.

Channel 4 explain: “Each uncensored snapshot captures every natural reaction and during the viewing, emotions run from nerves to frustration as each couple gains a new perspective on their relationship.

“But will what they view on the ‘sex tape’, and hear from therapists Anjula and the other couples change their relationship for the better – or make them face up to the worst?”

The four part series will expose underlying problems including trust issues following infidelity, dealing with a partner’s fetish, and generally making time for each other amid the demands of work and parenting.

One couple taking part in the series are Victoria & Brian.

Victoria says it was her idea to take part, explaining: “I just wanted Brian to watch himself on TV and see the way he treats me, basically to show him that it wasn’t right.”

Brian added: “Stupidly, many moons ago I cheated on Victoria and we’ve had trust issues ever since then, and I’m also a bit of a male chauvinist if you like, I don’t think it, but Victoria thinks I am. She saw the programme advertised and said, ‘I think that might help our relationship’.”

And although Victoria was “absolutely mortified” about having sex on TV, she thinks it has helped their relationship.

“He surprised me for Valentine’s Day as well, he arranged a nice meal, drinks, brought me flowers, chocolates!” she revealed.

Channel 4 say that Sex Tape “promises a unique fly-on-the-wall look at relationships in real-time, as each couple attempts to recapture the romance they once had.”

Sex Tape airs on Channel 4.
