What is the show about?
Each episode of the show sees the host Melanie Rose meet different couples. Like any makeover series, it starts with an inspection. At times, it’s an unused basement, sometimes a large bathroom, and most of the time, it’s a spare room. After analyzing the space, she chatted with her clients to understand their bedroom habits, sexual preferences, and fetishes.
She even brings out her not-so-hidden treasure, which is her bag filled with sex toys and aides. This helps her read the couple and understand their boundaries, making her job easier. From a full-on rock n roll sex dungeon to a tastefully designed luxurious yet sensual bathroom, the show displays a wide range of designs.
Melanie’s aim with the show was to break the “dirty and disgusting” connotation that envelopes sex. As she mentions in the trailer, she believes, “when I design them (sex rooms), they can be beautiful. And they are places where couples can explore their deepest fantasies.” Rose also refrains from judging her clients. It’s probably why she’s been so successful in this niche market for about a decade.
If you haven’t watched this uniquely naughty show, the first season is streaming on the platform. Binge-watch and let us know what you take away from How to Build a Sex Room Netflix.
