"This book offers a practical Christian approach to tackling the sexual frustrations often felt by couples, particularly young parents of growing families. Gregoire has sensitively tackled a complex subject matter with honesty and humor and touches on many things men and women often don't know how to identify or are hesitant to bring up. Each chapter closes with a brief overview for the men, which I personally found helpful in better understanding what had just been written for the women." (Carolyn R.

"Honey, I Don't Have a Headache Tonight is a delightful new book by Sheila Wray Gregiore. The age-old problem of unmatched sexual drives between married partners is addressed in frank terms. The author states that both partners should be able to thoroughly relish the sexual relationship. Gregiore hopes to preserve Christian families by helping women resolve conflicts in the bedroom. . . . I especially liked the chapter on respect that showed the difference between carrying each other's burdens and crrying another's loads. 'When we routinely do things for other people that they should do for themselves, we allow them to treat us in an un-Christlike manner,' states Gregiore. She bases her teaching on scriptures, weaving them into every chapter. I would recommend this book to wives who are discontent with their sexual relations, those who want to overcome obstacles that keep them from enjoying sex fully in their marriage. I would suggest it to women who have hit snags in their marriages, from which they want to disentangle themselves." (Elece Hollis ChristianBookPreviews.com 2004-12-01)
This book is incredibly practical and funny. I was on the floor over Spotty and the gecko and his (lack of a) love life. The author covers an incredible number of issues that can cause a stalemate in the bedroom. Her knowledge of biology is sound and her solutions are 'real.' A must read for women who want to improve their perspective about married sexuality. This would also be a good book for wives to read and discuss with their husbands. I think the author's ability to talk honestly about how women feel would benefit them, plus there is a page 'For Him' at the end of each chapter which summarizes the chapter and offers a few suggestions for husbands."

A good resource with some funny stories and a personal style. (Michelle Connell Book, Line, and Sinker 2005-12-01) --1
From the Back Cover
It’s 10:00 p.m. He wants to start snuggling. You want to start snoring.
He feels unloved because you aren’t “in the mood,” and you feel unloved because he only cares about one thing.
Honey, I Don’t Have a Headache helps you overcome this frustrating stalemate by looking at the obstacles to every woman’s sex drive—hectic schedules, romanceless husbands, negative body image, and more. This practical—and often humorous—book gives advice on how to turn up the heat in your marriage when a solitary bubble bath seems much more enticing than your hubby waiting in the bedroom.
