Bringing Sexy Back: Mating in Captivity

Having kids is exhausting. Add cooking, cleaning, entertaining, and errand running to the list and you have absolutely no energy by the end of the day. When you finally drag yourself to the bed, the furthest thing from your mind is getting busy between the sheets. But, don't you want that spark and sizzle?

For those who have lost that lovin' feeling, Esther Perel wrote a book to help you find your way back. Mating in Captivity ($25) has a different approach from the typical girlfriend chatter. Perel, a psychotherapist, focuses on couples who love each other and are close to each other emotionally, but lack the sexual passion that was once there. This book should be required reading for parents. Take some pointers from this book and your partner will be all smiles.

Oooooooh, this is totally what i need! My time is so involved with taking care of my twin boys and managing all the other household chores...that i NEVER seem to feel sexy anymore. My husband always waits till its bedtime and im dead tired to try to make advances on me....which i generally rebuff. I'm too tired at that point and my mind is on nothing but, im usually ticked off that i did all the work that I will definitely get this book....i could use some pointers!! :D Thanks!
