Having made its television debut on Tuesday night, Kiss Bang Love was met with mixed reviews.
Some loved the voyeuristic element of watching strangers pash in an over lit room. Others worried about the hygiene factor of locking lips with a dozen unknown people.
Many people lamented yet another reality show based around shaky (and unproved) scientific “evidence” being created.
Me? I was just delighted to see an accurate depiction of sex taking place on prime-time TV.

It was almost two thirds of the way into what felt like an epically long episode that the kisser of the night, Lisa, went on two overnight dates with her chosen men.
The first was with a 24-year-old tradie named Jaxon, who had spent the day letting Lisa win the sporting activities they were playing and pulled out a guitar at dinner.

They shared a sunset picnic and seemed to really enjoy one another's company. By all accounts, it was what you'd surely deem a successful first date.
After what looked like at least 12 solid hours of laughing, getting to know one another and a few glasses of wine, Lisa and Jaxon returned to their hotel for the night. And despite Channel 7 booking two beds, Lisa later admitted that only one had been slept in.

Then, what seemed like just moments later (thanks TV editing), Lisa was on her second date with Ryan her local plumber, who had been thrown into the kissing pick-n-mix by Lisa's best friend and sister.
The two made cocktails together, ate teppanyaki, and eventually made their way back to their hotel to overlook the Melbourne Star (on behalf of all of Melbourne Lisa, I'm truly sorry for you) and pick at an average looking cheese board.
