Who doesn’t love sex? But what happens when that love becomes an obsession or addiction? Or you don’t feel the love at all?

Noted sex specialist Christopher Donaghue has dedicated his professional life to helping people reclaim control of their sex lives through intense individual and group therapy sessions. In the docu-reality series “Bad Sex,” the cameras capture the dynamic group sessions and the explosive and frequently heart-felt exchanges among clients. “Bad Sex” will offer a frank and shocking behind-the-scenes look at the process of healing severe sexual issues – both inside and outside the therapy room. The 10-episode series “Bad Sex” premieres Friday, November 4th at9PM ET/PT on Logo.

Male and female, gay and straight, the participants range in age from 20 to forty-years-old and arrive at the group with issues ranging from dangerous promiscuity to clinical frigidity, from violent sex addiction to compulsive public sex. Under his supervision, they’ll participate in a unique sex therapy group program where they’ll finally address their deep-rooted issues around sex, infidelity, trust, relational intimacy and sexual addiction.
Each episode will also feature a deeper examination of the treatment process and progress of an individual group member. Over the course of the season, viewers will get to know each participant’s struggle and hopeful path to healing. Can Chris lead them away from sexual destruction and addiction, and toward healthier lives?
