The Real Housewives of Auckland star Julia Sloane's Kiwi sex documentary could become a TV series.
Let's Talk About Sex co-producers Lisa Burd and John Davies have confirmed that they are in discussions to expand the popular documentary, which debuted at this year's Documentary Edge Film Festival.
The 75-minute feature follows Sloane on a journey of sexual discovery around the country, visiting an adult store, trying out a VR experience, chatting to a sex therapist and a somatic sex coach, and having a go at pole dancing and "enduring" a lap dance.
