Scientists and researchers cite that people are more trusting and open in the moments immediately after sex due to the body's natural release of oxytocin, also known as the "cuddle hormone." As a result, post-coital couples therapy is more powerful and effective.
WE tv's panel of experts includes Dr. Fran Walfish, a leading Beverly Hills relationship psychotherapist who treats celebrity couples and LA's poshest residents through her private practice; Dr. Chris Donaghue, PhD, a licensed clinical therapist, nationally certified sex therapist (one of only 20 in Calif. and 600 in the world), and doctor of clinical sexology and human sexuality; and Pastor Dr. Yvonne Capehart, PhD, the founder of "Healed for Real" healing and deliverance conference and Sister Keeper International Ministries Crusade, a network for women in ministry.
In addition to the expert panelists, the series features comedian and podcaster Danielle Stewart ("The Dani Stew Experience"), who adds a lighthearted perspective to the series through backstage commentary and gives a voice to everyday couples through her man-on-the-street style interviews, interspersed between show segments. Danielle also interviews each couple before they enter the sex box.
Once each couple enters the sex box, our experts discuss their initial observations, ranging from what they think is happening inside the box to whether or not the relationship will survive. Immediately upon exiting the sex box, each couple sits down for a heart-to-heart with the expert panelists to discuss what just happened, how they feel, and how they're planning to overcome their issues.
"Sex Box" is executive produced by Relativity Television's Tom Forman and Brad Bishop. The executive producers for WE tv are Marc Juris and Lauren Gellert, senior vice president of original production and development.
