In 2018, Burch launched a new stand up show called 'Unfu**able', in which she discussed her past as a virgin dominatrix.

“The show takes on sex, work, sex work, and how to keep sex from becoming work,” she told The List, "I talk about the commodification of my black, female, plus-sized body, and how that work helped me to recognise other places in my life where those elements are at play.

"In many ways, it's about reclaiming the self and one's own value, by trying to discover what it's worth.”

As well as narrating Too Hot to Handle, Desiree also stars in Netflix's Flinch, a reality TV show that tests contestants to the limit.

Too Hot to Handle is available to stream on Netflix now.
