Nine set to peek into Australian bedrooms with revealing new show, Sex Ed

Romance reality programming is set to dominate in 2016.

Farmer Wants a Wife, Married at First SightThe Bachelor and The Bachelorette are locked in, and now Channel Nine wants to have a look at what Australians are doing in the bedroom.

The network is currently developing and casting a new series called Sex Ed which promises to be a "frank and revealing look at contemporary attitudes to sex in Australia".

"Led by expert hosts, the new series will find out what's really going on in bedrooms across the country," Nine said in a statement.

"The program will explore married and dating relationships, and the tricky world of teen sex in the internet age."

A Nine spokesperson confirmed casting and production had just begun for the show, which will air sometime in 2016.

The announcement comes one month after Seven unveiled a controversial new reality format crudely dubbed Kiss Bang Love.

The program, which will also air in 2016, will see 10 single Australians kiss 15 potential suitors blindfolded before deciding which one they want to spend the night with.

Surprisingly, there is scientific merit behind the "provocative" new show which smacks of a strange blend of Bachelorette and Jersey Shore.

Relationship shows have emerged as a ratings boon for the major networks in recent years, with more than one million people regularly tuning in to watch Nine's Married at First Sight.

The Bachelor also recorded its best-ever ratings in 2015, with 1.48 metro viewers watching Sam Wood profess his love for Perth single mother Snezana Markoski​.
