From Publishers Weekly
The authors of The New Good Vibrations Guide to Sex and The Woman's Guide to Sex on the Web, Anne Semans and Cathy Winks have written a book that may find a wide and willing audience: The Mother's Guide to Sex: Enjoying Your Sexuality Through All Stages of Motherhood. Semans and Winks, employees of famed San Francisco sex shop Good Vibrations, approach their subject with characteristic optimism (one section is titled "Moms Make Better Lovers") and forthright wit, offering answers to such daunting questions as "Can I use sex toys in my last trimester?" and, for single moms, "Where should you spend the night...?" Even moms who aren't troubled by such challenges may enjoy Winks and Semans's chatty, companionable style. Agent, Amy Rennert.

From Library Journal
Sex and motherhood. It's a sorely underdone subject here treated comprehensively, accurately, warmly, and sophisticatedly with a superb resource section. Semans and Winks, coauthors of the also excellent The New Good Vibrations Guide to Sex and The Woman's Guide to Sex on the Web, approach sex and motherhood from four angles: basic components of women's sexuality, sex and pregnancy (just before, during, and just after), sex as a parent, and raising sexually healthy children. The work is greatly enhanced by copious quotations from several hundred moms who shared experiences and tips via surveys the authors posted online. Married, single, heterosexual, and lesbian moms are all included, and often overlooked issues such as circumcision, disability, or having an intersexed child receive coverage. Occasional illustrations would have been helpful, but the book flies high even without them. Highly recommended for all libraries, as there is no equivalent book available.

The authors devote an entire chapter to how and why sexual desire may decrease as the family grows. After all, low sexual desire is one of women's most frequent concerns.In their casual style, Semans and Winks offer various solutions on how to adjust to these changes; and for those interested, they provide suggestions on how to rekindle passion.
Another chapter describes the special challenges that single mothers may meet. I am not familiar with other books having incorporated this topic, making this Guide to Sex useful for women in a variety of settings.
I recommend the book to anyone considering starting a family and to individuals who already have children.
I've already read all the parts about AFTER the baby's born, and can't wait to apply their sex-positive ideas to my own little one in a few years.
Thank you, Anne and Cathy! Whether you're a mom-to-be or have kids of your own, this book is for you. Buy it today. Makes a great baby shower gift, too.
