Dead Bedroom Fix: The Importance of Getting Away

Here's a scenario I've heard more than a few times: A husband is tired of the same old no sex excuses and promises from his wife. "Not tonight. Maybe tomorrow, ok? I'm just tired." This has been going on for months, if not years. He seeks out help online, and finds my...

Dissecting Dead Bedrooms

Dissecting Dead Bedrooms

We all know the tried-and-true stereotype of the typical modern day marriage: Man is horny and ready to go at any time. Even though his wife is older, heavier and not nearly as bubbly and sweet as she was in the honeymoon stage of their early relationship, he still...

Mommy’s Coping Skills

Mommy’s Coping Skills

Women are more social by nature. What their peer groups says and thinks and feels is of paramount importance. Not only do women tend to "follow the herd" more than men, keep up with trends, and make the majority of the buying decisions (over 80% of consumer spending...
