Thinking Beyond Reality Television
This post brought to you by WE tv. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Divine Lifestyle.
I am an avid television watcher. I will watch pretty much any show at least once to see if I like it and if it is compelling enough to keep watching.
Have you ever watched any Japanese reality television? They have some super crazy shows that are just huge hits over there. I mean insanely popular shows. During the first 10 minutes of Sex Box I immediately felt that this show would be popular in Japan because it has that same format. In fact, when I went looking online for reviews after I saw the show, I found that there were many reviewers who thought the same thing: that they were watching Japanese reality television.
ABOUT SEX BOX
Sex Box is a groundbreaking, unprecedented and life-changing way for couples in crisis to heal their sexual and emotional issues. Each week three couples from a wide variety of backgrounds bring their pressing concerns to our expert therapists with hopes of repairing their troubled relationships.
The Sex Box experts are Dr. Chris Donaghue who is a Sexologist and Clinical Psychotherapist, Dr. Fran Walfish is a Relationship Psychotherapist and Dr. Yvonne Capehart is a Pastor and Couples Counselor. All experts offer advice and suggestions for couples that are designed to change their lives. The theory behind the Sex Box is based on a revolutionary, scientifically proven concept: In the first 15 minutes after intimacy, the body is flooded with oxytocin and endorphins enabling people to really open up and reveal the root of their problems.
The chosen couples have sex on stage in front of live studio audience in a specially designed chamber, but please know that there is nothing to see. This isn't a sex show, the couples enter the Sex Box to reconnect with each other and try to work through some of the issues they brought on the show. The actual Sex Box where couples enter is private, camera free and sound proof. Couples can then focus on one another and heir needs with no outside distractions. After they emerge (usually in some sort of matching pajamas) the truth is shared and they once again confer with the experts.
What I think that people can get out of watching the show is some helpful relationship advice. While I agree that the show is definitely entertainment, there is some helpful advice from the experts given. I notice that the majority of couples have been in a relationship for a while and they seem to want to make things better. The core of the show is the advice and the sex part is just to get the couples talking freely.
The experts discuss everything from trust issues to finding the passion again in a relationship. They discuss expectations of couples along with things like lack of support and lack of communication.
My husband and I watched the show together because we had both seen the previews. We watched all three episodes available.
