I am an avid follower of Kristen Chase online (Motherhood Uncensored, Imperfect Parent/Mominatrix, etc), and when I heard this book was coming out, I knew I'd buy it! As much as I still do love Kristen, I have to say I was a little bit disappointed when I read the book. The info within isn't very "fresh", as in, I've heard similar things in other places. In addition, the first section of the book is entirely dedicated to moms who are immediately postpartum...and let me tell you, that was not the time in my life where I was getting really excited to recharge things. I was more trying to balance out motherhood and marriage and returning to work, etc. Really working at getting back a decent sex life, in my opinion, comes later once everything else has balanced out. The book is marketed for "naughty moms" looking for ways to improve their sex lives, and truly it focuses a lot on that immediate postpartum period, so maybe the marketing and title are more what's "off" than the content. I'm not sure. And where does her info come from? I assume (based on what I know of Kristen) that quite a bit could have been from her own personal experiences, but she does not share anything personal in the book. (Obviously that's totally her choice). But readers want to know what has worked for other people in their same situation! If not sharing personal info, some interviews/statements from moms who have "overcome" this slump and some tidbits about how they did so would have been a great addition to this book. With all of that said, there is some great basic information in the book. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has recently become a new mother. Sex changes after having a baby, no doubt. And there is a ton of classic Kristen humor in the book, which is guaranteed to bring the reader lots of laughs. Hope this review helps!

This books title "The Mominatrix's Guide to Sex: A No-Surrender Advice Book for Naughty Moms"

Could Easily be "Manage Your Body Through Pregnancy: A No-Surrender Advice Book for Moms"

The first 80% of this book is about before, during and after birth and the affects on your body. The previous review talking about physiological birth control is 100% correct. Reading this book is as close to reality on life before and after birth than any other book I have read.

What it is not, is a sex book, it is far from it. It is reality on the real life affects on the female body from birth of children.

The last 20% of the book does get into "Spicing Up" the sex life, and if you are still reading it can be valuable.

If you are more than 1 year removed from birth of your latest child, then I would recommend finding a different book.

If you have not yet had a child, or are expecting a child, this is a great book for soon to be moms. It was certainly a reality check at the very least.

I follow Kristen Chase's blog "Motherhood Uncensored" and have for years (since her first child was a tiny tot). When Chase's alter ego "The Mominatix" popped up on Imperfect [...], I was intrigued but I think I missed the point. For a while.

I'm the parent of an 18 yr old, a 15 yr old and a 9 yr. old. I've been married 20 years and my husband and I were together three years before we married. I'm a full time middle and high school teacher.

All this to say that my mojo...she was missing. Hubby and I needed a, well, a recharge. Our marriage needed to find the spark again.

This January, The Mominatrix started the Sexual Resolution; a month long series of challenges meant to jumpstart that spark again. Halfway through the month, I got curious about the Mominatrix book and ordered it from Amazon. It was a quick read, especially since I'm 9 years away from a newborn and much of the book deals with post partum issues. However, issues from pregnancy and parenthood are not just postpartum ones...self-image issues linger. This book, I thought, was applicable to all stages of parenthood. I know that I've found it to be engaging, helpful and very informative (porn specifically for women? Wow). I would, and have, recommended it to any mother, new or not, who wants to reclaim her whole self.

I'd recommend The Mominatrix's Guide to Sex to some of you if I didn't think the author was so demeaning. The book means well with its goal of whipping withering sex lives back into shape, but must it do it with reminders of how stretched out your vag and how busted your face have become? Shoot, this book even served as psychological birth control for me. Kristen Chase keeps it way too real for my tastes, but maybe some of you enjoy that type of tough love. The book manages to dispense bits of helpful advice in between the name-calling (shout-out to all you C-section bitches!), but perhaps it would've been better served with a little more class as I'd think the target audience already has enough self-esteem issues. Then again, they could get a laugh from their own self-deprecation.

The boyfriend says: I was curious because every guy is interested in pregnant sex, but whoever this woman is has such a condescending way of communicating her tepid humor. I don't want her as my mom, I'll tell you that much. And there are no pictures so I'm completely unstimulated.
