Blindboy Boatclub and Mr Chrome are looking to educate the nation on sex as part of a four-part series.

In a first for Irish television, the show will feature couples having sex live on air.

The comedy duo posted an advert on an adult's website, seeking applicants for the project, which will go up against Love Island and Big Brother in a ratings war to shock viewers.

It read: "Professional Porn Actors and Ordinary Couples wanted for paid TV gig. I'm working on a TV programme that examines our relationship to sex.

"One: A male and female who are experienced in porn / performing sex on film. We’re looking for one male, one female, both of whom are very good looking, with professional credits in porn, who are in their 20s or 30s, to do a live sex shoot with our crew.

Love Island's Sinead Hegarty, Katie Salmon, Kasey Wynter and Chelsea Kelly.

“Two: A regular, average-looking couple in their late20s /early30s to do a live sex shoot with our crew.

“Ultimately, these sex clips will be broadcast on a television show, and everyone’s private parts will be covered up with clip art (think bananas and melons). None of the footage will be released anywhere but in the very delicately clipped together television programme.”

Speaking to the Sunday World, a producer for the show said: "I don’t think there will be any intrusive behaviour, there might be some outside pointing, 'this is what that looks like."

The yet untitled project, produced by Happy Ending Productions, is said to be a "light-hearted comedic documentary" which aims to show that sex between people who "love each other" is "nothing like the misogynist stuff online".

An RTE spokesperson told Independent.ie: "A new series with the  Rubberbandits is currently in development. Nothing has been shot yet and a number of topics including Irish attitudes to sex are being looked at for the Rubberbandits to tackle in their own inimitable style.

"The slot hasn't been confirmed, and as it's a comedic take on Irish attitudes to sex involving the Rubberbandits, it will be nothing like Love Island or Big Brother".
