Anna Sinopoli and her husband recently appeared on a Lifetime reality show challenging them engage in seven consecutive days of sex. Here's what Anna has to say about the experience.
Married: 8 years
Notable: Anna Sinopoli and her husband Anthony recently appeared on the new Lifetime series, "7 Days of Sex." During the show, the couple took up the challenge of having sex seven days in a row in an effort to improve their marriage. Anna gave us a few minutes of her time on the coupleís eight-year anniversary, which weíre guessing was a bit more intimate thanks to the coupleís appearance on the show.
 What prompted you to want to take up the 7-Day Sex Challenge?
To be honest with you, I thought it was a good idea for Anthony and I at that time because we were suffering in that department. When youíre married for a certain period of time, you forget how to have fun with each other because all of lifeís influences come and take over and you donít allow yourself to have fun like when you were dating. So I thought the 7-Day Sex Challenge would give us the opportunity to do that.
 What did your husband think of the 7-Day Sex Challenge and doing the show?
Well, anything that has to do with sex he was up for. He got seven days of sex and he didnít have to ask for itóhe was all in. I think that he, I donít want to speak for him, but he seemed to enjoy it. I think he probably thought I was going to have a rougher time with it than he was, which was true, but he tends to take a little more control and I have a hard time giving up control and thatís where the tug-of-war comes in.
 Do you find, now that youíve gone through the process, that youíre more open in your conversation about sex?
Anthony has always been open about it and I donít get as intimidated by it or embarrassed by it as much. Iím really a shy person when it comes to that, I really donít put my stuff out there, so to speak, but this show helped me realized: Iím a married woman, Iím not a kid anymore so whatís the big deal. And if itís going to help other couples talk about it and be more open about it, then I feel like I did a good thing by doing it.
 Itís unrealistic to have sex seven days a week 365 days a year...
Sure is [laughs].
Do you find that you are having sex more frequently or that youíre both happier about your sex life now?
Iím much happier about our sex life in this period of our lives. I think this show initiated it and weíve kept it going to this point. The timing was right for us and things have gotten better for us in so many ways since the show, so weíre in a much happier place now.
 What do your friends think of it now that the show has aired?
They thought it was cute. They said their husbands wanted to try it.
I bet they did [laughs].
They were telling me, ďThanks a lot, now my husband wants sex for seven days and to try the experiment.Ē Look, the reality is, I talked about it to my girlfriends about what was going on in our marriages and a lot of them have husbands who travel and they donít see their husband as much as I see my husband. Anthony and I are around each other so much itís incredible that weíre still married, but the truth is weíre such good friends and we work at it. We work at our marriage and I think thatís what the key is. As long as the two people who are married to each other are willing to work at the marriage then itís going to sustain itself.
 For anybody else considering doing the sex challenge, thumbs up? Thumbs down? Any tips?
Thumbs up, for sure. No doubt thumbs up. I would get some sexy lingerie. That was the only thing I didnít do. I would get some sexy lingerie, that never fails because that makes us feel pretty and the men love it. It may not stay on too long, but it gets you started.
 Well, the nice thing is youíre celebrating your eight year anniversary so thereís still time.
Actually, we got married eight years ago on Motherís Day. My mother had passed away so in memory of my mother we got married on Motherís Day to include her in the ceremony and to remember her. So Motherís Day is very special for us. Weíre going away this weekend and weíre going to have a great time. And I have something planned this evening for Anthony, but he doesnít know about it.
