A frank, intimate and warm-hearted examination of modern love lives in Britain today, this authored series from BAFTA and Emmy award winning filmmaker Charlie Russell, lifts the lid on three extraordinary and hidden worlds.

First we meet Webcam Couples, lovers in real relationships who choose to broadcast their sex lives online to an audience of thousands. What drives this new phenomenon: money, exhibitionist thrills, or a desire to have their relationships validated by strangers?

Next is Gigolos, in which we enter the world of male escorts trying to sell sex to women. With an estimated 15,000 British men advertising themselves as gigolos online, what is the reality of this hidden industry? Will women really pay to have their emotional and sexual needs fulfilled?

Finally Trans Lovers is a revealing portrait of British men who are proudly looking for love, and sexual thrills, with transgender women.
