Netflix's Spicy New Dating Series Asks the Impossible of Sexy Singles: Keep Your Pants On

Netflix's newest dating show has been revealed, but if you're expecting the sweet romance of Love Is Blind, you might want to take a minute. The premise of Too Hot to Handle is deceivingly simple: round up a group of young, sexy singles on a gorgeous island to meet and mingle. From the looks of the preview, they've got that down. But nothing comes without a price, and as these singles learn theirs pretty quickly — to stay on the island and win a $100,000 grand prize, they'll have to give up all forms of sexual contact — including self-gratification. They can't even kiss!

Considering how we counted no less than four smooches in the trailer alone, it's safe to say these guests aren't the best when it comes to restraint. The goal of the experiment is to help these serial swipers find an emotional connection without all the no-strings-attached sex. It's certainly not the end of the world, but when you're young and living it up, rules always seems like a bummer! Especially coming from a suped-up Amazon Alexa. Watch the trailer for Too Hot to Handle above, and see how the cookie crumbles when the show premieres on Netflix on April 17.
