9780061465123: Love in the Time of Colic: The New Parents' Guide to Getting It On Again

Sex. After. Baby.

These three words are spoken in hushed voices over playdates and at playgrounds. But while we may whisper them to our closest girlfriends, or joke about them after one too many beers with the guys, when it comes to talking with our partners about what's really going on (or not going on, as the case may be) in our child-proofed bedrooms, more and more of us find ourselves tongue-tied and tiptoeing. Are you part of the "sleepless, sexless" club?

You just might be, if

  • You'd rather just go to bed than go to bed with your partner.
  • The mind-blowing sex you once had now just blows.
  • The TV is turned on more than you are.
  • A playdate sounds better to you than yet another bad date night.
  • The baby gets more kisses and cuddles than you do.
  • You're beaten down from always having to initiate sex.
  • Foreplay has become chore-play.
  • "Let's get it on" are now fighting words.

But it doesn't have to be this way. According to bestselling author Ian Kerner, Ph.D., and "naughty mommy" Heidi Raykeil, it really is possible to do the hokey pokey and keep up the hanky panky. Ian and Heidi often bring very different perspectives, but they agree that sex matters . . . a lot. It's the glue that holds couples together and keeps lovers from becoming simply roommates or co-parents. Funny and frank, Love in the Time of Colic will help parents take the charge out of this once-taboo subject, and put it back where it belongs—in the bedroom.

“Instead of simplistic New Age advice, Raykeil and Kerner offer practical tips for parents who live in the real world of dirty diapers, post-pregnancy pounds and little or no free time.” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)

“Both a confessional and playbook for parents who’ve put their sex lives on hold.” (Chicago Tribune)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Original. 208 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Thanks to Carrie Bradshaw and company, our generation is now comfortable laughing about the big O over coffee-and thanks to our modern, metrosexual husbands, we can share equally diaper duty and hair gel. But as swinging and savvy as new parents are today, there s still one very old-fashioned topic we just don t know how to talk about: sex after the baby. Love in the Time of Colic takes on new parents pregnancy and post-partum sex and relationship issues with boldness, candour, and humour not offered anywhere else.Tired and distracted new parents will stay engaged with plenty of fresh, hip, frank, and funny banter that gives equal attention to the female and male points of view. This book is about change: the changes that parenthood wreaks on your sex life, and how to adapt to those changes without letting them master you. Today s couples want straightforward, quick answers to questions they re too embarrassed to ask their friends or doctors. This book will help them rediscover what is passionate and fun about the act that got them into this baby mess in the first place (and what a beautiful mess it can be)!.
