New reality TV show will see contestants competing to win a contract and a million dollars under the guidance of porn stars who know all the ins and outs.

If you thought you had seen it all on television, think again. We do, however, understand why you would think so, provided you watched the Big Brother Mzansi episode in which Lexi and Mandla exposed it all to the world by having sex in a shower.

If you had hoped Big Brother would provide viewers with a little more of that and fewer squabbles between housemates, then The Sex Factor may be the reality show you were looking for.

Kieran Lee, a British porn star, has taken it upon himself to give back to aspiring actors in his industry by launching a new show that aims to unearth the next biggest porn star. Dubbed the Simon Cowell of the sex industry, Lee has acted in more than 1 000 X-rated films in Los Angeles, California (the country’s porn capital), as well as the rest of the US, reports British paper The Mirror.

The Sex Factor will see eight men and women competing to be the best performer to win a whopping $1 million (nearly R16 million) after receiving guidance through the process from big-name porn stars. Up for grabs will be a three-year contract in porn too.

The other judges are well known in the industry with years of experience performing in front of the camera: porn stars Asa Akira, Remy LaCroix, Tori Black and Lexi Belle – all women – will be judging alongside Lee.

Speaking to the paper, 32-year-old Lee said: “I joined The Sex Factor because I wanted to give something back to the industry and find the next star.” The performer will use his directing experience in the industry to guide the contestants, who have reportedly never filmed porn before.

The show is not coming to South Africa … yet. We have enough issues with the blesser-blessee trend as it is. To boot, the supposed launch of adult television channels that, years ago, we were told were heading our way on the now-vanished pay-tv provider TopTV went nowhere.
