The Good Sex Guide is a British documentary TV series presented by Margi Clarke, broadcast on late nights on ITV.[1][2][3]

The show ran for three series. It gained unheard-of audience figures of 13 million for a show that aired at 10.35pm,[4] and was rewarded with a win at the RTS Awards for "Best Female Presenter" in 1994. A second series was equally successful, and a third, The Good Sex Guide Abroad, soon followed. Clarke turned down an offer to take the series into a late night chat show format, the host eventually being Toyah Willcox.[5]

A compilation of sketches was released in 1995 as Jeremy Hardy Gives Good Sex.[6]
