According to Dr. Oz many women are not having great sex and he turns to a professional sexual health advocate named Esther Perel (author of Mating in Captivity Book) in order to get some answers. This particular episode shows Esther Perel discussing sexual intimacy issues with fifteen different women in order to gage what is going on with women and their sexuality. These women are from different cultures and social economic backgrounds.
The women were complaining to or telling Perel that they were not having sex with their husbands and boyfriends because they were either too tired or too busy. They also cited children as the reason for the decline in their sex lives. Other issues such as lack of sexual desire and boredom were also brought up in the conversation as well. After this scene ends, Dr. Oz interviews Perel in his studio in order to get her analysis on the decline in sex with women.
During the interview Perel indicates that women are seen as individuals that do not desire sex and that men are portrayed as sexual beasts. Perel also points out that people stop desiring sex as much once they reach their 30s and 40s. Apparently, other factors in life become more important than engaging in sexual activity. She then goes on to say that many females feel as if sex is a chore or another demand from them that is needed by their partners.
Other sexual hang ups with women that Perel points deals with women wanting to make a connection with their mate and not being just used to fulfill their sexual lust.

She cautions people that one of the signs that a couple is splitting apart is the lack of sex and intimacy. Perel encourages people to get interested in each other again in order to keep their relationships strong.
