I'm so glad other people have picked up on this - it's super super annoying! How can it possibly be implied that the couples go away for a week and then come in to report back when they're wearing the same clothes/hairstyles as the week before? And worse, one woman had a different hair colour in the 'home work' week - then magically reappeared back in the follow up session with her previous colour. Come onnnnnnnn.

WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE CONTINUITY ISSUES WITH THE CLOTHES AND OUTFITS!!!!

I just have to emphasise the point that the couples and therapists are wearing the same clothes in every session - suggesting all done on same day! Eg. One of the lads was dressed smartly as he explained he had an interview on the first day - but every other session he was dressed the same! Then everyone else dressed same each time too! It does need to be explained - otherwise appears to have been 'fixed' - and not what it was supposed to be at all.

Yep. Same clothes for every session. Clearly all filmed on the same day. If this is not the case is there a representative from the production team who can explain what that is about?

The idea is fine, who knows, it may get others talking and issues ironed out. However the fact it’s a complete sham and all 3 sessions are clearly on the same day (despite the ‘homework’) makes me think we are jut being mocked or taken as fools as watchers. Did you think we wouldn’t notice they are wearing the same thing in every session?! Come on BBC. You create all this fuss about talking about sex, the seriousness of the issue, the importance of taboos being broken etc etc then are really lazy and offhand about the format. Not something I’ll continue watching.

I think this is an excellent series.
All the therapists do a brilliant job. As a therapist myself, who does not deal with sexual issues, I have learned so much from watching these guys work.
Not just about treating sex problems, but their attitude and presence and skilful guidance for their clients.
I love that this series includes a little video diary of each and the basic outcome at the end of their three sessions as well as a minute or two in reception.
Really good. Informative. Exemplary.

Yep totally agree about the continuity. It's extremely annoying. I'm assuming the sessions happen all on the same day.

Is it me, or is the continuity shocking? We meet a couple for their first session with a therapist, they go away to practice techniques, complete mood boards, questionnaires etc. The next time we meet the couple it's clearly at a later date, in their own home and the tell us, the viewers how they got on with applying those techniques etc. Next, it's back to the clinic for their second, "follow up", session with the therapist where they discuss their progress since the "first" session. We are supposed to believe this second session is taking place on a different day to the first. How is it then that the couple looks identical to the first session? They are both wearing the same clothes, hair colour and style. How are we supposed to believe that the sessions are on different days with a period of time in between?

Well, make your mind up Caroline Short... What is this programme, a sex, or a relationship clinic? This indecision alone tells you this is more than likely late night titillation? And, anyway, how many more ''sexual myths'' do we have left to break down?? Is there not too much over analysis going on over these subjects, maybe because people are just 'jumping-in' as my mother would say without taking the time to let a relationship grow 'organically' if you will... Just observe programmes like the Jeremy Kyle show, no wonder people have difficulty in the bedroom. I don't mean to sound negative, am just saying.

Well I haven't seen it but speaking from experience I'd say it's perfectly healthy to talk about sex. I remember Dr. Sally Feelgood's radio program on a Sunday night in Australia. She's a GP who talks about sex and sexuality, we often tuned in on a Sunday night back in the 80s and 90s just to hear her talk about sex. Education is important, if you hide sex behind closed doors you just give room for sexual deviancy, bring it out into the open and answer the questions. I've found the attitude in Britain towards sex rather backwards, it's a natural human thing not some alien practice. I will watch the programme though just to see how the BBC handles the subject.

Well, at almost 76 years old this interests me greatly. My wife and I notice young people splitting up without being able to assess the reasons for doing so. This makes me curious. Sex plays a large part in married life and can be very demanding on young inexperienced people. Toleration, patience and thought play a large part in the success of a partnership. My wife is 21 years my junior and we fight like cat and dog but we have been together almost 20 years and are still managing to make a go of it, love is what you feel for someone, if you have it, stick with it. Better the devil you know

My TV licence fee went towards producing this pointless programme, gratifying BBC commissioner's 'supersized' whim. I want my money back.

Not for me, ta, though I appreciate some may want to watch it, and at least it won’t be like some of the bizarre C4 programmes on similar issues. I’m all for talking about problems and getting them out in the open, but I don’t really want I hear about the problems others have on their personal lives, Im sure everyone has enough of their own, me included.

The first part of the headline certainly sounds like something I would watch.

Does the BBC employ the skills of sub-editors before it publishes content? "...clients in their 20’s and 30’s..." Why possessive apostrophe in 20's and 30's? It is neither possessing anything nor is a contraction of two words. Maybe sub-editors in their 20s and 30s have forgotten - or never learnt - the rules of grammar.

Let's be honest, it'll be politically correct, female orientated and with a dash of some kind of diversity. What's the point? It'll be lame.
