Sex is important for your health — it reduces stress, boosts the immune system and burns calories! A series of top sexperts join The Doctors and offer their tips for better sex, tonight!
Ultimate sexpert Dr. Ruth Westheimer says, "No one would put you down for taking a car instead of walking, so if you need a little extra help from a personal massager to climax at all, use one."
OB/GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson shows The Cone, the latest personal massager, which can be used alone or with a partner. The Cone vibrates and can be used up against a wall or on the floor.
"The point is, as Dr. Ruth always likes to say, personal massagers can be very helpful and innovative in the bedroom," E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork says.
Climax-in-a-Jar is a topical hormone stimulant with L-Arginine, which increases blood flow to the clitoris and can aid in orgasm.

Dr. Ruth's Sex Tips
Tip 1: "In order to find out which parts of your body are more sensitive to stimulation, try exploring every inch of your partner, and I'm talking about places you have never been, like the back of his leg. This is not foreplay, but more of a learning experience. Don't be alarmed if it turns into foreplay."
Tip 2: "Make evening plans for a sexy rendezvous with your partner over breakfast. Then spend a few moments throughout the day fantasizing about your date. You'll become mentally aroused, and by the time you pull into the driveway, the mood is already set."
Tip 3: "Trying to make your partner orgasm should be fun, not a chore. Try different positions to find out what works for you and him, and practice as often as possible."
Tip 4: "Women really do need to cuddle after sex. It makes us feel more in touch and in love, so when your man tries to turn over and sleep, start spooning and tell him that it's early foreplay for the next round."
Tip 5: "For more fun between the sheets, add some yoga to your daily routine. It not only gets the blood pumping, which helps with arousal, but stretching promotes more flexibility, which comes in handy."
Tip 6: "I think we should rename the G-spot the Ghost Spot. Most women don't orgasm through G-spot stimulation, so don't be disappointed if you can't find it, and move on!"
Urologist and sexual health expert Dr. Jennifer Berman says the P-Spot is a man's prostate, an erogenous zone, much like the G-spot is for women. Pressure on the prostate increases pleasurable sensations that maximize and intensify orgasm.
Dr. Berman says pressure on the prostate is also good for men. "It helps to eliminate excess fluid, prevent prostatitis and prevent blockage of the ejaculatory ducts, so there is a health benefit to prostate massage," she says.
Don't Forget the Nose
Pamela and Will, married for eight years, join plastic surgeon Dr. Drew Ordon and Dr. Lisa at the Arousal Bar onstage. Dr. Ordon explains that the sense of smell is very important when it comes to arousal.
Pheromones are scents the body exudes which the opposite sex can pick up on. Pamela and Will test pheromone colognes — androstenol, which attracts men, and androstenone, which attracts women.
The couple participates in a blind smell test using different essential oils. Find out which scents get their motors running!
Foreplay and Brains
Dr. Louann Brizendine, author of The Male Brain, says foreplay should start 24 hours before sex. "In the female brain, everything that happens 24 hours before is still in her brain," she says. "If you've had a fight the day before, her amygdala, which is the area of the brain that has all the intense emotions, like anger, and fear and being upset, are still there, and that will put the breaks on her sexual arousal circuit.
"For guys," she continues, "foreplay is everything that happens three minutes before insertion!"
Dr. Brizendine says a 20-second hug is a good start to foreplay. Research shows hugs release oxytocin in the female brain, which makes the woman feel good and calms down the amygdala.
The Importance of Kissing
"Males use kissing to get things started, but females use kissing to assess him as a potential partner," Dr. Brizendine says. Research shows men prefer deep, wet tongue kissing, while women want to start off a little slower.
Eat an Avocado!
Avocados are full of great fats, which help lower cholesterol, improve prostate and bladder health and erectile function. The fatty acids and vitamins also help boost libido.
