We knew Channel 4 was experimenting with a 'Real Sex Season', examining the murky world of pornography, prostitution and the hyper-sexualisation of teens, but this might be taking it a step too far.

The channel plans to air Sex Box - a TV show that features real couples having sex in a studio and then discussing it with presenter Mariella Frostrup.

The one-hour special intends to "reclaim sex from porn" by showing what real sex is like and exploring people's expectations of intercourse.

You won't actually be able to see the couples having sex, but they will be expected to candidly discuss everything that happened with psychotherapist, broadcaster and author Phillip Hodson; sex, body language and relationship expert Tracey Cox; and sex columnist Dan Savage.

Presenter Mariella explained, "Ten years as The Observer's agony aunt has given me plenty of insight into what an important role sex plays in our lives, but also how difficult we find it to talk openly about it to each other.

"The sex we see on screen, in magazines and increasingly online bears little relation to the real experiences of real people. I'm delighted to take part in this attempt to have a frank conversation about an essential element of all our lives."

The couples taking part span all ages and include teenage sweethearts, a couple in their early twenties and a married couple in their thirties.

Ralph Lee, head of factual at Channel 4, said, "Sex Box absolutely intends to be an open and adult conversation about sex, something we feel is currently being overlooked by mainstream programming."

The Campaign for Real Sex season starts on Channel 4 on 30 September 30 at 10pm with documentary Porn on the Brain.
