'Too Hot to Handle' Producers Explain Why Oral Sex Cost Contestants $6,000 of Prize Money

Too Hot to Handle is the latest dating show that has taken Netflix by storm and there’s an interesting twist to it!

On the new series, to win the $100,000 grand prize, the contestants will have to give up sex. Every time contestants do something as small as sharing a kiss, money is deducted from the grand prize. A kiss costs $3,000, oral sex costs costs $6,000, and sexual intercourse costs $20,000.

Viki Kolar and Jonno Richards, the executive producers of Too Hot to Handle, spoke to TheWrap to explain how they come up with the dollar amounts.

“There were these sort of long discussions to work out what was the right amount to be a penalty when they got it, but people could still work with that,” Richards said. “It wasn’t like there was a bar tab up on the wall saying, ‘this is what x costs, this is what y costs.’”

“We wanted to make it acceptable to break the rules so that we would have a show, but we also didn’t want to be too much about the money … We felt that $20,000 for sex was big enough, but it was those middle ground things that were a big debate. We eventually settled on $6,000 [for oral sex], but I think that was a bit cheap, as well,” Kolar continued.

“It was an ongoing discussion, lots of debate,” Richards added. “Conversations you never thought you’d be having.”
