A Kiss Costs *How* Much On ‘Too Hot To Handle’?!

I don’t know about you, but my brain has been completely taken over by Season 4 of Too Hot To Handle. In the first five episodes alone, this cast has made a name for itself as one of the most dramatic (and horniest) yet. And I’m loving every minute of the drama, especially those juicy rule breaks.

ICYMI, Too Hot To Handle is a Netflix reality show where they put a bunch of horny hot people on a beach with one rule: they can’t have sex — or touch in any kind of sexual way. If they break the rules, money is deducted from a large prize fund that all of the contestants have a chance to get their hands on. Believe me, it gets pretty wild.

The first season of Too Hot To Handle featured a prize of $100,000, but as the show increased in popularity (and the contestants hornier), Season 3 introduced a prize fund of $200,000. Not only did the Season 3 cast disregard Lana’s rules constantly, but it inspired the show to make some changes in the upcoming season when it comes to consequences. Spoiler alert: they’re worth double in Season 4.

Now, if you’re a Too Hot To Handle fanatic (like me), you’d know that this isn’t the first time that the show upped the ante on monetary punishment. In episode three of Season 3, Lana doubled the fines after the cast blatantly ignored the rules set in place. However, in the first 24 hours of Season 4, half of the cast broke the rules, and Lana had no choice but to double the fines.

So, how much does everything cost this season? Don’t worry, I’m here to break it down for you.

Want to Masturbate? It’ll cost you $4,000.

I’m pretty confident when I say that I’d easily coast through Too Hot To Handle without a fine… until this rule. When Lana outlaws all sex acts, she outlaws all sex acts. And that includes pleasuring yourself and releasing all of that sexual tension. Take a cold shower instead, y’all.

A kiss is $6,000.

Yes, you read that right. A single peck, a cute little smoochie-smooch, is worth $6,000 on this season of Too Hot To Handle. Now, I love to kiss just as much as anyone else. But a makeout sesh is not worth the price of a midsize Gucci bag. Sorry!

A handy comes with an $8,000 price tag.

Handjobs, fingering, really anything around third base will cost the cast a cool $8,000. And yes, Lana knows if they do it underneath the sheets. Somehow.

Oral sex is $12,000.

Engaging in oral sex can cost the Too Hot To Handle cast the price of an all-inclusive trip to Hawaii for a family of four. Think about that.

“Inappropriate touching” can be anywhere from $10,000 to $26,000.

It seems as though this price can fluctuate depending on how sexual the touching gets. Based on what I know about the other things the cast can get fined for, I can assume that this encompasses dry-humping, grinding, and heavy petting.

Sex is $40,000. You read that right.

Pick your jaw up off of the floor: according to Lana, going all the way will cost you about as much as someone’s yearly college tuition. Just imagine if one of the cast members didn’t finish… how tragic.

With a show as unpredictable as Too Hot To Handle, and a cast as crazy as Season 4’s, there’s no telling whether or not Lana will reduce the costs for good behavior, or increase them as a form of punishment. Either way, pass me the popcorn!
