DOES A HEALTHY SEX LIFE = A HEALTHY MARRIAGE?
SEX, RELATIONSHIPS, MARRIAGE...
WHAT WOMEN REALLY WANT IN AND OUT OF THE BEDROOM
IS EXPLORED IN NEW LIFETIME REALITY SERIES
7 DAYS OF SEX, PREMIERING APRIL 26
Show Reflects Women's Attitudes about Sex, Love,
And Sensuality as Couples try to Reignite their Marriages
LOS ANGELES, CA (March 27, 2012) - What do women really want when it comes to sex? As a new generation of women talk openly about sex, marriage and relationships, Lifetime is at the center of this cultural conversation with the all-new reality series 7 Days of Sex. Challenging couples to have sex for one week straight with the hope of saving their marriage, 7 Days of Sex will premiere on Thursday, April 26, at 10 PM ET/PT. It will lead directly into the debut of Lifetime's celebrity interview program The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, hosted by British television personality and renowned photographer Amanda de Cadenet.
"Lifetime is about tapping into the lives of women as they are today...bolder, unapologetic and authentic. 7 Days of Sex is a reflection of the challenges in our relationships -- balancing time, family, work and trying to achieve real intimacy while being honest and true to ourselves," said Nancy Dubuc, President and General Manager, Lifetime Networks.
Bringing to light the major cultural shift women are currently experiencing sexually, each episode of 7 Days of Sex will feature two couples who attempt to make radical fixes to their troubled relationships by asking the frank question: can a diet of daily sex help them recharge their marriage? Viewers will find out what happens when the program follows the emotional journey wives and husbands take together when they leave the cameras behind the closed door to explore their own sexual intuition, imagination and creativity and have sex with each other for seven consecutive days. Bedroom insecurities will be thrown out the window as each couple alone tries to break away from the confines of their ordinary routines by once again bonding physically, sharing their fantasies, going on dates and doing special things for one another. With the goal to reconnect emotionally and remember why they originally fell in love as their physical intimacy and affection increase throughout the week, they'll have a platform from which to identify and tackle their bigger issues. Does a healthy sex life equal a healthy marriage? Will daily sex become a chore? Or will it be the glue that holds them together and be the long-lost key to newfound happiness in their lives? What each couple discovers along the way may make or break their relationship.
7 Days of Sex is produced by Shed Media US (America's Supernanny) and executive produced by Nick Emmerson, Jennifer O'Connell, Dan Peirson, Elizabeth Cook, David Van Taylor and Ali Pomeroy with Lifetime's Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Colleen Conway.
