BBC Three and Hulu have commissioned a new documentary series exploring human sexuality, presented by Cara Delevingne.
Planet Sex will see Delevingne explore some of the biggest topics in human sexuality, including gender, sexual orientation, relationships, pornography and sexual tastes.
The six-part series, produced by Naked, a Fremantle company, will see Delevingne open herself up to mind and body experiments and demonstrations in the world’s leading sex research labs, and speak to different communities about their experiences of gender and sexuality.
The series will question why some of us are straight and some of us are not, if there even is such a thing as being straight, if gender and sexuality are independent or intertwined, and how sexual tastes vary between people and cultures.
“As someone who struggled for years to understand my sexual identity, I am so excited to be partnering with Hulu, Naked, BBC Three and Fremantle to be making a series that could change the views of so many people through honest and personal conversations," said Delevingne.
"I can only imagine what having a series like this would have meant to the 14-year-old me who struggled to understand feelings that were seen as non-conventional or different. If our series helps one young person have an easier conversation with their parents, we will have achieved one of our many goals in making this series."
Simon Andreae, CEO of Fremantle UK, founder of Naked and executive producer of Planet Sex, added: “Cara is an incredibly powerful voice within the LGBTQI+ community, who is well positioned to be able to confront and question some of sex and gender’s most enduring and important mysteries.
"It’s a privilege to be working with her and bringing her vision to life with the teams at Naked and Fremantle, and we can’t wait for audiences on Hulu and BBC Three to see it.”
