A SHOCKING new TV show Sex Pod sees the British public share their most private and personal X-rated questions and woes.

The programme, which aired on 5TAR last night, features a variety of people who graphically confess their intimate sexual issues in a 'pod'.

The Sex Pod is set up in a similar way to the Big Brother diary room and once people have expressed their problems, the computer generated voice provides a solution.

As young people often find it difficult to open up about their private lives, the show is aimed to try and encourage them to feel more comfortable about doing it.

Dr Vena Ramphal, a celebrity sex and relationships expert, takes a leading role in the programme and she uses her experience to coach the guests.

Vena believes the reason people struggle to communicate their sexual issues is because there's a stigma attached to the topic which makes members of society uncomfortable to talk about it.

She explains: "I think that people find it difficult to talk about sex because as a society - all over the world in fact - we have hardwired guilt and shame about it.

"We haven't developed a mature, safe, respectful conversation about sex. I do think that we are in the process of doing that.'

One married couple who starred on the show were Lettie, 22, and Lee, 25, they wanted to discuss a very senstive issue that was affecting their sex life Channel 5

She also blames the internet for many of the issues that people have in the bedroom, in particular the male population.

She explains: "While the internet has made information more accessible which is a good thing, it has also been detrimental. We are just starting to see the effects now.

"Many men in their 20s are having erectile dysfunction issues that they link to porn 'addiction'.

"While this link is still being debated I can tell you that the young men who experience it are having a really difficult time."

Lettie is unable to climax because her clitoris is too sensitive, she explains: 'It's like it feels too good it's unbearable. It's not a bad pain. It doesn't hurt. It just is literally too good' Channel 5

Vena's erotic expertise extends to the ancient Indian pleasure traditions of the Kama Sutra and she recommends that more modern day Brits learn about it and transfer the skills to the bedroom.

She said: "The most important thing our modern society can learn from the Kama Sutra is that it treats sex as a practical aspect of life that needs to be learnt.

"You don't just fumble about and hope for the best! Give sex the attention it needs. The Kama Sutra is the original sex ed text book."

Woman asks for advice as she struggles with a sensitive 'issue' 

During the first episode of Sex Pod, Lettie, 22, and Lee, 25, a married couple, enter to discuss a very sensitive 'issue' that's affecting their sex life.

The pair have been together for five years but Lettie is unable to climax because her clitoris is too sensitive.

Lettie explains: "It's like it feels too good it's unbearable. It's not a bad pain. It doesn't hurt. It just is literally too good.

"It's definitely too much pleasure to handle I know most women wouldn't be complaining about this but it honestly is quite a big problem."

Another person who featured was Tiffany Rose, 24, a transgender woman who has been receiving hormone treatment for the past five years but now she wants to find out more about surgery Channel 5

And also featured on the show is Tiffany Rose, 24, a transgender woman who has been receiving hormone treatment for the past five years but now she wants to find out more about surgery.

She asks: "I started transitioning when I was 13, so I was very young I told my family very young, and then at 19 I started hormones and since then I've not really looked back. I can't wait to get a designer vagina.

"When I have my surgery will it feel like a real vagina? Will I be able to use it like a real vagina and will I be able to use the toilet properly

Although Vena has been an expert for a number of years, she maintains that some of the guests' confessions still shock her.

"There was one question that made my heart go out to the young person asking it," she explained.

Transgender Tiffany Rose voices her questions about surgery

"The question was along the lines of, 'How do I have sex without being drunk?' Alcohol is often used to let go of inhibitions, but being drunk is not a healthy way to have sex.

"It's important to be sober so you can make safe decisions, be genuinely consensual and truly enjoy sex."

Sex Pod is on 5STAR, Wednesdays at 10pm
