"Choreplay" the New Foreplay?

Need to reignite that spark in your marriage?

Well there's hope and believe it or not -- it comes from household chores.

The Early Show took a look at a new type of foreplay called "choreplay."

Early Show co-anchor Julie Chen recently visited a married couple, Mark and Alisa Bowman, to see if it can really work.

Chen also spoke with sex therapist Ian Kerner, who recently wrote a blog on this topic, and Cosmopolitan's Executive Editor Nicole Beland to discuss why choreplay is the new foreplay, what it says about relationships today, and if this will become a bigger trend.

Take a look at what she found and listen to some expert advice that could improve or even save your marriage:
