Front Cover
New World Library, Feb 9, 2011 - Family & Relationships - 224 pages
While parenting books rarely broach the subject, most mothers can testify that sexual desire doesn't disappear when they have children; it simply gets buried under an avalanche of conflicting demands on their time and attention. Sexy Mamas, by the authors of The Good Vibrations Guide to Sex, reaches out to women who want to integrate the pleasures of a satisfying sex life with the joys of motherhood. The book offers tips, anecdotes, and practical information about sex, supported by advice from medical experts, sex experts, and the most knowledgeable experts in this area — other mothers. Candid anecdotes and suggestions from hundreds of survey respondents support, encourage, and inspire readers to embrace a more powerful maternal sexuality. Topics include what hormonal, psychological, and environmental factors affect the sex drive, rekindling relationships, the best sex, parenting resources, and more. Sexy Mamas is a practical, informed guide for all mothers.

About the author (2011)

Anne's interest in accurate sex education was sparked by the nun who taught her eighth grade religion class and counseled them to “think of a hamburger when you find your thoughts straying to the impure ? it will distract you.” Suspecting that God really didn't intend for us to choose between two things as wonderful as sex and food, Anne made a point of learning as much about sex as she could. After college, she worked first at Good Vibrations, the women's sex toy store, and later at, a women's sexuality e-commerce site. Anne has spent the last 20 years educating herself and others about the wonders of sex, and since becoming a mom, she has turned her attention to the sexuality of both mothers and their children. Anne believes that all people, including children, deserve information about their sexuality in order to lead more fulfilling lives. Anne is a coauthor of the bestselling The Good Vibrations Guide to Sex and has written a “Sex and Parenting” column for Hip Mama.
