Channel 4's latest reality series Open House: The Great Sex Experiment is set to return for a second run, TV Zone understands.
The series, from Firecracker Films, is a bold social experiment which explores whether relationships can thrive without monogamy from. It follows a group of currently monogamous couples as they explore for the first time whether they would be happier in an open relationship.
Assisted by sex therapists and relationship coaches, the couples embark on a series of 'intimate challenges to road-test if the idea of having sex with other people is at odds with maintaining a committed relationship'.
Though still largely taboo, the question of whether or not humans are truly suited for monogamy is a universal preoccupation which continues to divide opinion, not only among scientists, but among the public at large. But what are the implications of renouncing monogamy?
Speaking about the first series, Channel 4's Tim Hancock, said, “This provocative new series confronts a profound and unsettling question that is rarely asked openly – but with the insight, warmth and sensitivity of the best factual entertainment formats.”
Series 1 of Open House is available to stream on All4. The second series is understood to commence filming this Summer.
