If you're a fan of a cock-blocking cone and think you could handle being celibate amidst a sea of sex-loving singletons - you're in luck: Netflix's sexiest reality show Too Hot To Handle is asking the public to apply for series six.
Fans of the show will know this is a departure from the norm, in which contestants are tricked into thinking they're applying for a completely different reality TV series before being slapped with a sex ban.
Following a drama-packed season five dropped in July, the show's producers want next year's participants to sign up knowingly.
Previous blue-balled favourites including Harry Jowsey, Francesca Farago and Chloe Veitch thought they were applying for a completely different romp of a reality show.
That's until virtual, diffuser-shaped assistant, Lana (read that backwards for irony), revealed the real competition they'd entered.
The prize fund starts at $200,000 (around £157K) and is reduced throughout the season whenever contestants break Lana’s rules and have sexual contact with each other - or do anything solo.
Now, Netflix is giving the show's straight-laced format a real seeing to and asking applicants to sign up on purpose.
Interested in one month of no nookie on a luxury island?
You're in luck, with the show's producers taking to social to reveal yesterday (14 August) they want to hear from those of you who are 'addicted to casual hook-ups but fail at deeper connections' to take part.
The ad reveals: "For the first time every Lana is going public. Too Hot To Handle is casting. Wanna take part? Or know somebody who should? Apply or nominate someone today."
The caption continues: "Are you addicted to casual hook-ups but fail at deeper connections? Could LANA and a tropical retreat transform you, or someone you know, for the better?
"Apply for Too Hot to Handle Season 6 now."
Anyone 18 or over looking for love over lust (with a handy cash-prize to seal the deal) is invited to apply.

Season five contestant Elys Hutchinson was one of the first to stick her hand up saying: "I nominate myself again, I miss Lana."
Fellow season five participants Louis Russell and Christine Obanor, who coupled up on the show, also volunteered themselves for a do-over, as well as others from past series.
Some fans questioned this new tweak in the show's format with one comment questioning: "I thought the whole point was to NOT know you're on the show?"
Another said: "Lana basically just said I don’t need to hide behind a fake show title, come at me."
One hopeful said: "Applying now."
Others called for more racially diverse, queer and mature representation in the show's participants.
