"Extra" caught up with Dr. Mehmet Oz, gearing up for Season 3 of his syndicated show, and the doc gave some tips he learned from traveling around the world this summer on how to improve your sex life and start your day without coffee!
Dr. Oz explained there is a sex famine in this country. "One of the reasons people aren't being intimate is one of the couples is snoring, keeping the other one up. It's interesting how many couples live apart from each other because of the noises they make."
