Anna Richardson lifts the lid on sex and relationships in lockdown Britain

Category: News Release

Channel 4 has commissioned a revealing new one off with Anna Richardson looking at the sex habits of Brits during lockdown. Sex Tips in Isolation (w/t) will offer advice, insight and tips to keep us all in the mood during this unique crisis.

Whether you’re a cohabitating couple stuck in a lockdown rut, a fledgling pair still in the honeymoon period or a singleton looking to have the perfect phone sex, this one off programme will provide a cheeky glimpse of what’s going on behind closed doors and offer a range of how to guides. 

Anna will also share the results of a specially commissioned poll showing how habits have changed and how some relationships may have changed during the nation’s enforced time at home. Plenty of Brits are also turning to self-pleasure with the sale of sex toys also booming. Ann Summers reported a 27% increase in the sale of sex toys compared to this time last year, Swedish luxury sex toy retailer Lelo have seen sales soar by 40% and the Brits are not alone in feeling frisky either with international relations also on the rise.

Anna will also scour the best of social media for additional inspiration and speak to members of the public, celebrities and experts all willing to overshare their sexual adventures in isolation.  

Camilla Lewis, Executive Producer for Curve Media said, “If there’s one good thing that has come out of lockdown, it seems to be that more Brits than ever before are having sex, enjoying sex, and exploring things they never would have dreamed of before. This show reflects the resilience of the British people, and how love during lockdown can not only survive…but thrive.”

Sex Tips in Isolation (1 x 60’ w/t) was commissioned by Sarah Lazenby, Head of Features and Formats at Channel 4. It is a Curve Media production and the Executive Producers are Camilla Lewis and Charlie Bunce.
