Ever wondered how to build a sex room? That’s a question only How to Build a Sex Room can answer.
We are big fans of interior design shows, from Reese Witherspoon’s The Home Edit to reality show Dream Home Makeover. We love a transition, whether it’s a person (we’re looking at you, Queer Eye) or a home—if it involves a reveal, we’re into it. But the latest Netflix interior design show is slightly different from the norm, because rather than build houses or turn around bedrooms on a shoestring budget, this latest drop from the streaming site is a whole lot raunchier.
How to Build a Sex Room follows interior designer Melanie Rose, who specializes in pleasure rooms, as she helps a whole range of people create the “red room” of their dreams. We told you it was juicy.
The series, which premiered on the site last week, is already a big hit with viewers looking to spice up their sofa steaming session, and it’s not hard to see why. Here is everything we know about the show that has got the interior design world talking:
What is How to Build a Sex Room about?
It’s pretty self-explanatory as far as TV show titles go. The show follows British designer Rose, who is known as the Mary Poppins of Pleasure, apparently, as she creates bespoke adults-only playgrounds for clients across the U.S. The projects range from a sumptuous Las Vegas–themed suite for a married couple stuck in a sex drought to a pleasure basement for a polyamorous family of seven.
“A sex room can be anything from a sumptuous bedroom to a dungeon under the stairs,” Rose explains in the opening episode. “But when I design them, they can be beautiful, they can be fantasies, they can be anything my clients desire.”
Her clients include entrepreneurs, bankers, teachers, and police officers. “Maybe even your next-door neighbor,” she says. “They say you never know what goes on behind closed doors. But I do.”
What are people saying about How to Build a Sex Room?
As you can imagine, the show has got tongues wagging (both literally and figuratively), with viewers taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on the show—and they’re pretty positive, to say the least.

Melanie Rose is hilarious and a fucking genius. Watch it immediately,” wrote one fan, while another added: “If you thought you had plans with me, no you don’t, I’ve got a date with How to Build a Sex Room.”
