The next title destined for SBS2’s naughty Friday night slot is Frisky Business, a risque peek into the lives of staff at the UK’s biggest sex toy retailer.
Warm, funny and frank, this observational series goes behind‐the‐scenes at successful business Lovehoney, which sells one out of every three sex toys bought online in the UK. The six‐part seriesnfollows the colourful ups and downs of working life at the company’s HQ, a warehouse on a trading estate in the genteel city of Bath.
Twelve years ago, Lovehoney was operating from former journalist Richard Longhurst’s bedroom where all of the stock was stored under his bed. Now Richard, his business partner, former DJ and record producer Neal Slateford and their respective girlfriends, sisters Joy and Bonny Hall, run a multi‐million pound company. They employ 130 members of staff and send out more than 20,000 parcels per week to customers across Britain. Lovehoney has also recently secured the exclusive rights to the lucrative Fifty Shades of Grey brand.
This series takes an entertaining look at the company’s inner workings, showcasing the eclectic array of characters who work for the business. Each episode features strong, character driven storylines from a cast of pickers, packers, buyers, customer care staff, toy reviewers and the returns department!
From the shop floor to the boardroom, Frisky Business meets the people who turn Britain on!
