Sex...with Mom and Dad is a frank reality show about the problems teenagers face with romantic relationships and their sex lives. Hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky, this groundbreaking MTV series allows parents and teens to have an open discussion about this often taboo topic with the help of an expert, counseling sessions and homework assignments. Dr. Drew believes that communication is key to resolving conflict, and many controversial or sensitive issues are discussed. Therefore, viewer discretion is advised. Dr. Drew is a licensed physician and addiction specialist. His decades of experience as a doctor, counselor snd relationship expert serve the troubled families looking for a way to communicate with one another and resolve their conflicts. Each episode of Sex...with Mom and Dad begins with a short introduction to the problem. The parent(s) and teenager meet with Dr. Drew for the first of three counseling sessions, which are a neutral place to air their differences. The doctor follows up with a homework assignment aimed at helping the family members see each other's point of view. The stories covered in the series range from a 16-year-old virgin who is tired of her mom's pressure to have some experiences with boys, to a young bisexual whose parents think it is just a phase. Other topics include: a 19-year-old who trades money and food for sex, an aspiring ladies' man who may actually fear commitment, a mom who wants to stop being a party friend and become more of a parent to her risk-taking teen daughter. Each situation has neared the crisis stage, so the participants are motivated to take Dr. Drew's advice and tackle these awkward conversations for the sake of a better future. After Dr. Drew helps the families, the program also points viewers to additional resources for additional information on the topics raised during the show. Articles, videos and discussion forums on sexual health and dilemmas can be the first step for the audience to begin to tackle these difficult subjects within their own family.
