CINCINNATI — Patty Brisben, founder and CEO of sex toy retailer Pure Romance, is getting her own reality TV show on the TLC network.

The show, “Mother Knows Sex,” will focus on Brisben and her family as they run Pure Romance, an in-home direct sales business that relies on a group of independent sales consultants who throw in-home sex toy parties to market and sell the products.

Founded in 1993, Pure Romance has become a multimillion-dollar business and boasts a staff of 80 full-time employees, according to its website.

Representatives from Pure Romance could not be reached for comment.

The one-hour program will debut Feb. 1 at 10 p.m. on TLC, with three repeated showings during early February.
