Phoenix couple says 'Sex Box' show saved their marriage


At least one couple says it worked for them. Sally and Brittany Pennington told our partners at KNXV "Sex Box" saved their marriage.

The Penningtons' marriage has had its public moments before. They were actually one of more than 30 couples who were married during the Grammy Awards last year.

The creators of "Sex Box" say they're not involving sex to be sensational - they cite research that's shown that in the minutes after sex, endorphins that flood a person's body make them more willing to engage in an open and honest conversation.

The show is an adaptation of one that's been pretty popular in the UK.

The American version premieres on WEtv Feb. 27.
