January 22, 2014 — Interview with Kimberly Ford
with Louise Kuo Habakus and Alison MacNeil
We’re getting down and dirty with author Kimberly Ford on her book Hump: True Tales of Sex After Kids. Yup, we’re going for it because the statistics on sex are terrible.
What’s getting in the way of the good stuff?
Is it true that you’d rather give up sex than your iPhone?
Time to get back up on that horse? (so to speak)
Already figured it out and reaping the benefits?
Call in and share it all with us… well, maybe not everything, LOL.
We’re going to have a great conversation, filled with puns, honest disclosure, and hilarious, bawdy, angst-filled storytelling.
When we floated the topic with friends and unnamed spouses, we heard:
Families are less functional when parents stop having sex with each other.
If you’re not having sex with your spouse, don’t assume no one is having sex.
Even if it’s absolutely, unequivocally the very last thing in the world you feel like doing, do it anyway. I’m always glad I did.
Give a little, get a little.
Listen in as we interview Kimberly, call in with an alias (we won’t bust you!), and then share the podcast with your favorite adult in the house.
Giddyap! Three weeks until Valentine’s Day.
