A late-night talkshow, whose presenters will consume drugs, engage in sex acts on air and discuss their experiences afterwards, is the latest Dutch reality TV product.

The live Spuiten & Slikken show - which can be translated either as Inject & Swallow or Ejaculate & Swallow - starts on October 10 on the Dutch youth channel BNN, the Guardian reported.

"We're not setting out to shock, but to inform," said a show producer, Sjoerd van den Broek. "The idea is to treat these subjects like a piece of theatre, to review them if you like. There's been endless idle chat about these matters, but never an adult critique."

"Main presenter Filemon Wesselink, 26, is billed to go on a pub crawl, take heroin in the form of a pill, and try LSD at home on the sofa under the watchful eye of his mother. He will also retire into a locked room and try to establish whether oral sex is better from a man or a woman," the Guardian disclosed.

His co-presenter, Ties van Westing, will interview both Wesselink and guests about their sexual and/or narcotic practices.

The people in the Netherlands, which gave the world the "Big Brother" reality show and is known for its liberalism, have reacted with mixed feelings to the news of the show launch.

According to a spokesman of the justice ministry parts of the show were "probably illegal."
