A Tired Woman's Guide to Passionate Sex

It's not Valentine's Day or your Anniversary so the occasion may not be there to put you in the mood. Let's face it, many gals who are juggling a career, small children, teenagers, school, parents, friends, volunteering, keeping up a household, and so much more...are...simply...worn...out.
The exciting, tingling feeling of V-Day is just about gone. The thrill of a "throw down" is in our rear-view mirror. Though in our heart of hearts we really want it back.
How do go from "Honey, I'm too tired" to "Honey, I'm waiting"?
On a previous Girlfriend We Gotta Talk radio show, co-host Susie Galvez and myself found out. We had a fabulously fun and inspiring conversation with Dr. Laurie Mintz, psychologist, professor, and author of A Tired Woman's Guide to Passionate Sex.
Her "5-T Plan" alone is worth a listen. And, we adored some of her oh-so-memorable advice to help you reclaim desire and reignite your relationship, such as:
"Communication is the bed-rock to makes your bed rock!"
"Ask your husband to engage in more chore-play."
"Men are microwaves and women are crock-pots." (or crack-pots, as we will hear we added!)
Why not take a few minutes to listen while you are doing something that doesn't take your full brain power, like mindless e-mail or sorting papers? Because even though you're tired doesn't mean you should miss out on one of life's greatest gifts.
