Foursome (promoted as Playboy's Foursome) is an adult reality dating series, which has to date aired five seasons on Playboy TV.

Premise[edit]

Based on similar reality dating game shows of the early 2000s like Blind Date and The 5th Wheel, Foursome gathers 4 singles, 2 men and 2 women, and bases them in a Los Angeles (and, in some later episodes, New York City) mansion for 24 hours. Throughout the experience daters are introduced, profiled, and made to participate in erotic activities both in the mansion and off-site.

Playmates and models generally instigate the first round sexually-oriented party games, followed by "field trips" to Hollywood clubs, massage parlors, or trendy bars. What transpires between the participants varies depending on factors such as chemistry. In some episodes, they may engage in one or more sexual encounters; in others, they may go to bed separately without doing so; occasionally, a participant may be so dissatisfied that he or she leaves the mansion early. Participants also occasionally "hook up" with the facilitators of the various activities in lieu of or in addition to their fellow residents.

Notable singles from past seasons include Survivor contestant Ozzy Lusth,[1] Big Brother 11 contestants Michele Noonan and Braden Bacha,[2] adult actress Mika Tan, The Real World cast member Dunbar Flinn, Flavor of Love contestant Brooke "Pumkin" Thompson, I Love New York contestants Jason "Heat" Rosell and Sandro "Rico" Padrone.

Season 2 And Beyond[edit]

In 2008, Foursome returned for a second season, featuring a new mansion and slightly updated format. In some episodes, facilitators and other special guests end up having sex with participants, leading to friction among some daters.

In September 2009, Playboy TV will premiere a third season for the series,[3] with cameras going to homes in Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Miami.

In September 2010, Playboy TV announced the fourth season[4] of the series which takes place in New York, and Los Angeles. A fifth season aired in 2011.

Beginning in the second season, the level of sexual explicitness increased in the series, with penetration and other sexual acts shown uncensored. As noted below, this resulted in the DVD release of Season 2 being edited to remove such content.

Porn stars appearing in the show[edit]

In addition to the celebrities mentioned above, several porn stars have also participated in the series, appearing both as Foursome participants and as facilitators. The series usually does not identify when a porn star appears as one of the daters. (This is only a partial list.)
