          October 22, 2009

          “I wanted to make someone jealous.” “I was bored.” “I wanted to feel closer to God.” These are just a few of the 237 reasons why women say they have sex. Author and clinical psychologist Dr. Cindy Meston and Dr. Jennifer Berman, a sexual health expert, join Dr. Phil to talk about women and sex, and offer advice to couples with differing libidos.

          Women’s Reasons for Having Sex

          To get an idea of how women feel about having sex, Dr. Phil sends comedienne Kathleen Madigan to talk to women on the street. And, Dr. Cindy Meston, author of Why Women Have Sex, lists the good, bad, silly and shocking reasons that women do the deed.  

          You may be surprised by the reasons some women get intimate.

          Maribel says the number one reason she has sex is because she likes it.

Jeff says he resists because he’s worried he may be at risk for another heart attack.
