New BBC Sounds series for Jacob Hawley

Comic to look at sex and love

Jacob Hawley is to return to BBC Sounds with a new documentary series.

The comedian’s new  series, On Love, will  looking at modern attitudes to sex and relationships - from the porn industry, love in   lockdown,  the gaps in sex education, the stigma associated with sex workers and rise in celibacy.

It follows previous series he made for the BBC on love and on employment during the first lockdown.

 He said: 'I’m really proud of this series, I honestly don’t think there’s another podcast like it in terms of combining a documentary format with stand up comedy. 

‘Similar to my drugs series, I wanted to approach these topics in a balanced way that does justice to the people involved, especially with porn and sex work - as a lot of people get that wrong, and I think we’ve done that.’

Guests over the series will include Tyger Drew Honey, who grew up with normal people,  Ita O’Brien, who was t the intimacy coordinator from Normal People, Vogue's dating columnist Annie Lord, and Gina Martin who campaigned to make up-skirting illegal.

Jacob Hawley: On Love launches next Wednesday, although a teaser has been released today
