Book Description

A straight-talking women's guide to tending to a partner's unrequited libido and reigniting the sexual sparks in a long-term relationship.

Many couples are all too familiar with the classic bedroom balancing act-managing His and Her sex drives. As men clamor for more action and women grumble for more sleep, the topic of "maintenance sex"-those dutiful two minutes to "get it over with"-invariably arises to divide and conquer a couple's sex life. Yet as Don and Debra Macleod reveal in Lube Jobs, maintenance sex can be an exciting and loving way to jump-start a stalled sex life. And if it's done right, it can be fun for both parties. Indeed, just as the sleekest luxury car requires routine tune-ups for smooth performance, a long-term relationship requires regular lube jobs for a friction-free love life.

Part saucy sex manual, part relationship survival guide, Lube Jobs includes a provocative menu of twenty ready-made "lube jobs" consisting of naughty sex scenarios, bedroom-toy tips, sexual techniques, and erotica. Each lube job inspires a woman to embrace maintenance sex as a critical aspect of her committed relationship, and shows her how to infuse it with spontaneity and affection. Throughout are poignant, sometimes hilarious, stories of couples struggling to find their own balance in the bedroom.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The husband and wife authors (The French Maid And 21 More Naughty Sex Fantasies to Surprise Your Man) argue that maintenance sex, defined here as any activity designed to please the man in the relationship, is undeserving of its reputation as "both sexless and joyless" and "the bane of a woman's sexual existence." Jettisoning any real attention to female sexuality and needs (men are given virtually no tips on romancing, seducing or satisfying), the authors focus on the disparity between the male and female sex drive, taking at face value the common wisdom that men need more sex than women. As such, they provide 20 strategies for keeping him satisfied, which include everything from role-playing scenarios to racy emails to incorporating toys and videos. While none of the concepts are novel, the book's consideration of each topic is generally thoughtful and explained in graphic detail, including not just the how-to of a given "job," but exactly why it gratifies. Though some (if not, many) readers will find this single-minded guidebook patronizing, it does what it sets out to do, with very little deviation from the man-pleasing mission at hand.

"'Maintenance sex,' say the Macleods (The French Maid), can keep intimacy going with a husband who may want sex more often than the wife or when she's not really interested. It's a realistic rather than a sexist assumption, given power couples, having-it-all womanhood, roller-coaster hormones, and real-world parenting. Such "lube jobs" consist of affectionate, speedy, varied, and regular sexual encounters that ensure a husband's orgasm with minimal effort and optional arousal on the wife's part-not as a replacement for but a supplement to more leisurely and shared sexual sessions. Some 20 suggested scenarios include creative manual, oral, toy-enhanced, and coital approaches, including body shots (a porn staple), front-seat fellatio, backseat bonking with porn on the laptop, bathtub blow jobs, and closet canoodling. While the constant servicing-a-car wordplay may annoy some readers, the advice is sound and fun. Lighthearted illustrations would have been a nice touch, but the book does quite well as is. Most people spend the largest part of their adulthood slogging through committed relationships, and they need books like this. Recommended for public libraries." --Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars Good approach October 4, 2007
Yes, I am a man, a man who has been married to the same woman for 35 years. And a man that has been married only once. With that said, I dropped this book into my wifes stack at the book store on a whim. I then found it was really written for women. Oh well, I'll read it anyway. Wow. Profound may be an over emphasis, but not much. When I finished, I handed it to my wife and told her "I would give anything to be treated by a woman like this". We have a good marriage and we have a good sex life (read "good" :). Let's just say, this made some "positive" changes in our relationship. Thank you Debra and Don Macleod!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing February 8, 2010
By Katina
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is simply amazing. After two children within 18 months our sex life had all but died. Using this book to find ways to fulfill my husbands sexual needs really gave a jump start to my own libido! I am so thankful to these authors for all of the great ideas and tips. It is such a straight forward book, so easy to read, and so blunt about every thing; it's a keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars love it January 2, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Love this book. Its a relaxing read. While it gives "lube jobs" with very specific details of how to perform them, it also goes into detail about relationships and common issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent book February 7, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I agree with one other reviewer. If my wife made the effort to treat me like this, I'd be the happiest guy in the world and would do anything to keep her happy. Why don't more women clue in that it takes very little to keep a man happy?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little More Info Than I Needed September 13, 2007
Not a bad book and a real easy read. It had some good info in the first part of the book, but as it went along it got more and more graphic and little far out there. Read it for the fun and let down your hair. I chuckled quite a few times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!! September 10, 2007
I love this book. Being over 50, I have been sexually active for many years now and thought I knew quite a bit. But I learned a lot from this book. My husband and I have tried several things and he really enjoyed it. My advice is to get it, read it and enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars novel perspective January 11, 2013
By H. Karr
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a male, it's always interesting to hear womens' take on sexuality. I think most men would appreciate the approach taken by the author (a female).
