Double Act Television: “This series uncovers a hidden issue totally at odds with the hyper-sexualised media portrayal associated with young people today. Addressing this in a sensitive and responsible way will provide contributors and audiences with a much more accurate picture of what many young people in Britain today are really experiencing.”

If you are aged 21 or over and would like to be guided in the art of intimacy, T&Cs and application form are at www.theintimacyretreat.co.uk
