Too hot to handle offers Netflix viewers eight episodes of pure gold. The “dating” competition in reality (which isn’t much about dating) takes the standard TV format with a twist – no sex, kissing or other sex-related interactions.

Participants did not sign up knowing that they would be banned from sexual activity. Instead, they were lured into thinking that they could explore all of the hedonistic fantasies. Then, once the party started, Lana, a robot much like an Alexa, stopped to explain the rules.

Anyone who breaks the rules will cost the group part of the $ 100,000 in winnings. From the start, two competitors – Francesca and Harry – made a conscious decision to kiss, which resulted in $ 3,000 being deducted from the pot. Needless to say, the rest of the attendees were not thrilled.

The most interesting part of the whole series is the narration, provided by Desiree Burch.
