Though the show is called "Masters of Sex," Lizzie Caplan wants audiences to know its going to be educational.

"If you watch Masters of Sex, you will score chicks," Caplan said. "This is everything your readers need to know."

"Masters of Sex," which premieres Sunday on Showtime, is actually more "Mad Men" than "Fifty Shades of Grey," based on the true story of 1950s human sexuality researchers William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Caplan).

"They basically figured out that the female body is far better equipped for sex than the male body,” Caplan explained. “Women can have multiple orgasms; men cannot. They're actually the sexual athletes, not the men."

But lest you worry the show sounds like all work and no play, Caplan put those fears to rest:

"I know that the show will be equally relevant to men and women," she said, "if for no other reason: tits!"
