A nice cover-up for full on braggery of a life of hot sex, interrupted for a little while by motherhood.

It is useful to read about the shared loss of libido and I'm glad that mothers are talking about it. I found it hard to relate however (and perhaps others will too) to her descriptions of the wild, delirious sex she and her husband had anyplace, anytime before children. How they meshed so incredibly perfectly and found eachother to be sublime after so many other sexual relationships. She goes on and on about these encounters that I wonder whether she really isn't trying to make people jealous. She talks about how "just this afternoon I wound up naked on my husband's black leather couch in his office". She also mentions in a few places in the book how her husband makes a substantial amount of money and she likes that. She has a wonderful trip to a spa by herself to rekindle her libido... It's hard to relate to unless you are a wealthy Berkley woman from a liberal background with lots of hot sex in your history and enough money in your future to permit some excitement. I'm not a prude, but I did find it hard to relate.
