The latest episode of OWN’s The Never Ever Mets will help the couples increase intimacy through a “bondage” excercise.

This week the couples are tasked with a group activity where they learn the Japanese art of “Shibari,” to help them with healthy communication and drawing closer together.

The exercise includes using ropes and feathers, and putting complete trust in a partner.

“Last week we had seven couples arrive to the house, with one objective — to meet the person you fell for online to see if your connection had transferred to real life,” host Ta’Rhonda Jones says in a preview clip. “Unfortunately for two couples, it was a resounding ‘no.'”

Jones introduces the five remaining couples to sex educator Orpheus Black.

Black tells the couples practicing Shibari will help them become better at “letting go.”

After the intimate exercise, the couples return to the group house where their family members show up and express concerns about some of the relationships.

The Never Ever Mets premiered on April 19.

The 10-episode series features couples who have been virtually dating for some time and believe they may have found lasting love. The twist is they’ve never seen each other in person — until now. They meet face-to-face at a group house and after three weeks of living together decide if their internet love can survive in real life.

The relationship series is produced by Bunim Murray Productions for OWN.

The Never Ever Mets airs Friday nights at 8/7c on OWN and streams on Max.
