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
