Overview

How do married couples stay hot for each other when the chase is over, the mystery is gone, and they've got cookie-stealers underfoot? Stay tuned-it's all in Married Lust, one secret at a time.

Drawing on the results of a Redbook poll of 10,000 men and women about the most private aspects of their sex lives, Married Lust dispels the biggest myth about marriage to show that lust does not have to fade with time. And, with a special reversible cover that reads "Modern Tactics in Higher Education," you won't need to worry about the kids seeing the book around the house.

The first secret: Enthusiasm. Seems obvious, but when at least one partner is bone-tired, it's hard to remember. But enthusiasm is a main ingredient to desire, and people express it by initiating sex, being spontaneous, and willing to make sex a priority. Relearning enthusiasm can make for better lovemaking, and jumpstart a couple from a dry spell.

But that's just the beginning. Nine other secrets to stimulating desire are explored in depth, with lots of real-life examples of keeping sizzle in your relationship.

How do you stay hot for each other when the thrill of the chase is over, the mystery is gone, and you've got a couple of kids underfoot? In this groundbreaking book, Redbook contributing editor Pamela Lister draws on the advice of America's top sex experts as well as thousands of married couples to come up with truly surprising news about what men want, what women need, and what real couples are doing to make desire last for the long term. You want to know how to please your guy? How to have him endlessly desire you? How to want him forever? It's all here, one secret at a time. This book dispels the myth that lust fades over the years, and offers surprisingly practical secrets about how to stay exciting a lovers. It's for anyone who's ever wondered: Can desire truly last, year after year? The answer, as you'll discover here, is a resounding Yesss!!!

Quick! Don't think about it, but just answer: What's the one thing you'd change to make your sex life even better? That's the question some 10,000 married men and women answered in amazingly candid and revealing detail in two massive online sex surveys Redbook conducted to find out what really turns couples on-and keeps them hot for each other year after year. It is from these confessions, revelations, and private disclosures that Redbook contributing editor Pamela Lister has written this sexy, fascinating, intimate, and at times very, very funny guide to keeping passion alive for the long haul. Through her frank but ebullient style, and her intelligent and thoughtful analysis of the survey material, Lister will help you discover, down to the most intimate detail, what it is your husband secretly wants-and how you can get more of what you want, too.

How do you keep the thrill that you had at the start of your love affair? How do you make desire last so that you stay hot for each other year after year? That's what this book is about. Sex. Passion. Marriage. And learning how to put all three together in the same sentence. As many studies have shown, lack of sexual desire is a significant problem for both men and women today. Drawing on the advice of America's top sex experts and psychologists-as well as the experience of real couples-this straightforward and inspiring book offers simple, practical ways to short-circuit that trend. Some of the 10 secrets that you'll discover in the following chapters are practical. Some are racy. Some may require a bit of courage. But they all work in their own unique ways to keep desire alive, and that's what counts. If your goal is to better understand your husband's needs-and have him better understand and meet yours-this book is for you. (And for him, too. Pass it his way after you've read it.) Men and women have different expectations of romance and sex, and this book is about learning how to bust through all the marriage fatigue so that you and your husband cn continue to see each other as lovers-year after year.

So what are these secrets? You'll have to read on to find out, but here's a hint of the good news you'll discover in this book: The vast majority of men and women say they desire their spouse as much today as when they met, if not more.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Redbook magazine contributing editor Lister (Redbook is a Hearst publication) conducted online sex surveys of approximately 5,000 married men and 5,ooo married women, wording the questions differently for each gender to maximize responses. Eschewing Masters & Johnson-style clinical profundity, Lister says people are interested in "weighing their patterns and desires against the perceived norm, against what's acceptable, against what you might think." The reversible dust jacket's underside sports the title Modern Tactics in Higher Education, so parents won't have to hide the book from their kids, or commuters from their neighbors (Book News, Apr. 9). Lister's language is peppered with slang like "horny," "boner," "grooving on each other" and "getting laid." What husbands and wives complain about, prefer and do (and how often) is discussed in a completely unprovocative way; reassurance and encouragement abound. Bottom line: if men did more housework and childcare, wives would be less tired and resentful and more likely to put out; and men want to see their wives naked more often. The "10 secrets" thus are hardly revelatory but provide common sense advice for a satisfying, long-lasting sex life: adventure, generosity, authenticity (don't fake orgasms), attention, courage (address problems jointly) unquestionably good advice.

Sorry but you're better off with the quick peruse of any rag on the checkout line. This book is nothing but the same 'hot & sizzling' topic Redbook repackages every single month. Does anyone ever ask the question, isn't this last month's article, barely repositioned? This compilation of meaningless anecdotes insults the reader. Is there no limit a rag or writer will go to avoid an honest creative endeavor, something worth publishing? Something worth paying for? Save your money but if you absolutely must, pick up the rag! It's cheaper.
