[via press release from Showtime]

7th SEASON OF "PENN & TELLER: BULLSHIT!" PREMIERES THURSDAY, JUNE 25th 10 PM ET/PT

PENN & TELLER: BULLSHIT!, now the longest-running series on SHOWTIME, returns for a 7th season on Thursday, June 25th at 10 PM ET/PT. The series will continue to feature the notoriously outspoken pair on their crusade to expose the inherent hypocrisy (translation: bullshit) of many of the popular beliefs and sacred institutions in our culture.

Brief episode descriptions of all 10 episodes are below:

"Orgasms" (June 25th)

In the seventh season opener, Penn & Teller question the notion that Americans are in need of bigger and better orgasms by meeting with the inventor of a $12,000 remote-control orgasm machine, taking a $300 lesson from a sex coach, and observing a demonstration on how to unleash one's "inner erotic rock star."

"Astrology" (July 2nd)

Millions of people believe their destinies are determined by the positions of the sun, moon, and planets. Penn & Teller follow two astrologers as they dole out advice � for a price.

"Video Games" (July 9th)

Politicians and other alarmists claim that playing video games leads to teen violence. Penn & Teller attempt to debunk that theory by handing over a real semi-automatic weapon to a nine-year-old to see if playing video games will turn him into a human killing machine.

"Apocalypse" (July 16th)

The world will end on December 21, 2012 � that's according to a growing legion of doomsayers who follow the primitive Mayan calendar. The duo follows a pair of investigators to ancient Mexico to explore the mysterious "Mayan Prophecy".

"Lie Detectors" (July 23rd)

Polygraphs are used in thousands of investigations and job screenings. Can a machine really detect whether someone is lying? Penn & Teller will meet people whose lives were ruined by the faulty tests.

"Organic Food" (July 30th)

Penn & Teller examine the organic food industry to determine if it is, in fact, more nutritious, and better for the environment.

"Taxes" (Aug 6th)

According to Penn & Teller, our nation's tax system is complex and unfair. See what happens when they hit the halls of Congress in search of a legislator willing to talk about taxes.

"Lawns" (Aug 13th)

Penn & Teller take on the lawn industry and visit a neighborhood where growing a certain type of grass is mandatory. They even meet a guy whose brown lawn landed him in jail!

"Stress" (Aug 20th)

Stress used to be a normal part of life but lately, it's a "condition" and curing it has become a major moneymaking industry. Watch as they hunt down various remedies ranging from aromatherapy to needless nutritional supplements to mystical spa treatments.

"The Vatican" (season finale Aug 27th)

In the final episode of the season, Penn & Teller take on the secretive world of The Vatican.
