Every weeknight at 10/9c beginning September 1, Discovery Fit & Health will encore provocative programming from Discovery's complete library of content, offering a sneak peek behind bedrooms doors to explore unconventional relationships, bizarre practices and mysterious sexual health conditions. Throughout the month, learn about common dysfunctions and get sex advice from Dr. Laura Berman from In the Bedroom, while Lisa Ling reveals sex subcultures in select episodes of Our America. Specials look at unique sexual health issues such as 100 Orgasms a Day or Sleep Sex, while Sex Robot and Secret Sex Lives explore alternative sexual preferences.

To engage fans beyond the shows, Discovery Fit & Health and Shape Magazine have partnered to host weekly one-hour Twitter chats featuring expert insights to address all the sex questions you never thought to ask. Curious minds can join the #Sextember #Sex_Talk conversation every Monday at 10/9c via @disc_health and @shape_magazine to learn more about topics such as: sex Q&A for new moms, sex at all ages, sexual health and anything else fans aren't too timid to ask.

"With no topic too taboo, SEXTEMBER reveals what really happens when the lights go out - from the birds and the bees to Kama Sutra and STDs," said Jane Latman, General Manager of Discovery Fit & Health. "With both jaw-dropping programs and those that highlight perplexing medical conditions, Discovery Fit & Health is where viewers can turn to for a little more schooling than what was taught in sex-ed."
