Honey, Baby, Sweetums, Pookie . . . Who knew those sweet, androgynous pet names are the first step toward a nonexistent sex life? And all those 'personal grooming' activities you used to hide . . . Believe it or not, sharing them with your partner puts you on the fast track toward killing a healthy sexual relationship.
Stop Calling Him Honey and Start Having Sex is a smart, sassy, and honest guide for women of all ages, and looks at the root causes of sexual boredom in a revolutionary way. Authors Maggie Arana and Julienne Davis have discovered that it's the everyday things we say and do that sabotage sexual chemistry. They dare to pull back the sheets to examine the subtle yet powerful ways we're dulling our desire for our partners, while giving simple and practical solutions to rekindle the fire in our relationships.
This non-therapy-speak guide explains why date nights and sex in different locations are only Band-Aid solutions: The truth is, if you don't feel like having sex anymore, forcing yourselves to do it on the kitchen table is not going to fix the problem! In Stop Calling Him Honey and Start Having Sex, you'll also learn:
- Why arguing is an important factor in bringing couples closer together
- Why it is critical to maintain a sense of individuality
- How sexuality doesn't hinge on having the perfect body but rather on how a woman feels about herself and how she projects those feelings to her partner
If your sex life reads more like a service manual than a romance novel, stop calling him 'honey' and start rekindling the flame of desire!
