It’s Day 6 of Marriage Boot Camp and it’s time to shift gears. To everyone’s surprise, the theme of the day is sex! The couples are separated from their partner and must concoct a love potion to measure what they need more of in terms of sex and intimacy in their relationship. In the midst of mixing their perfect sex life, Lorenzo’s huge sexual appetite is exposed, while Tara and Dean reveal a non-existent one. As their relationship becomes more complicated, Michelle and Cody are put on blast for mixing their feelings with pleasure. Is sex the only glue holding their relationship together? Later, the couples are brought into the Boot Camp room and are blindsided when they find a bed waiting for them, where they will be performing their love making…with puppets! When puppets that look like the couples enter the scene, Tara immediately freaks out and flees the exercise. With Dean as her accomplice, she comes up with the excuse that she has a fear of puppets. But with her history of keeping her guard up in the house, is this just another attempt to get out of a drill again? Later, Memphitz must pack his bags and head to court, leaving Toya to anxiously await the verdict of his case. Unsure if Memphitz will return to Boot Camp, Toya reveals to Lisa that her brother faced a similar charge that locked him up for ten years! Will Memphitz face the same fate? Meanwhile, Tara and Dean fight into the night as secrets and lies infest their relationship…
