Kidding. It is Hamish Blake. But the comedian has just made his STI debut on the silver screen as 'Chlamydia'.

Blake has joined a string of Australia's most hilarious names in Luke McGregor's docu-comedy series Luke Warm Sex which is about to air on the ABC. And if the trailer released on Friday is anything to go by, you will be in stitches.

The six-part series follows McGregor as he speaks to sexperts, sexual empowerment coaches, therapists, tantric practitioners and scientists in the quest to get better at, you know, doin' it.

And the best part about the whole series isn't just the cast, including Dave Hughes, Ryan Shelton, Michala Banas and Hamish Blake. After the first episode airs at 9pm on March 16, you can binge watch the entire series in all its awkward glory on ABC iview.

But while McGregor explores sexual confidence, intimacy, sexual identity and creativity in the bedroom you might be wondering why the comedian put himself in this position (get your mind out of the gutter)?

"The main reason I chose to do this series was because...I wanted to get better at sex," McGregor told the ABC.

"I thought I was terrible at it, I really didn't like talking about it, and the act itself always terrified me. It's an area of my life I've never been satisfied with, but I've never taken any positive steps to rectify that.

"Luke Warm Sex provided an opportunity to try and overcome my fears of all things sexual -- and hopefully help others to overcome their fears as well."

Whether McGregor's on-screen sexual journey transforms from lukewarm to red hot, you'll have to watch to find out. And judging by Blake's performance, you'll get a few safe sex tips along the way too.
