Produced by Double Act Television, a representative said: “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.” 

The Intimacy Retreat is the working title.
