SBS is currently recruiting LGBTQI singles to take part in an Australian series of Undressed, the television social experiment exploring the concept of 'accelerated intimacy'.

Ninety people will be selected in all, with hopes the singles will cover diverse nationalities, cultures, sexualities, ages and minority groups.

Participants on the show will be asked to leave everything but their underwear aside, skip dinner and drinks, and go straight to undressing a total stranger before jumping into bed. They'll also take part in a series of activities based on psychological research which suggests that attraction can be accelerated by answering increasingly intimate questions.

At the conclusion of their screen time, paired singles are asked to decide whether they would or wouldn’t like to continue their date.

The matchmaking social experiment is set to explore cultural diversity and preconceptions about race and sexuality - challenging both viewer and contributor prejudices.

A hit in Italy, there's also a UK adaptation currently in the works.

You can apply to be part of the show here. Applications close midnight, May 31. The series is set to air on SBS2 later this year.
