The book made some good points and was entertaining enough, but the author really started to wear on my nerves after awhile.

Joan Sewell candidly and courageously chronicles how she and husband Kip deal with their libido mismatch. Prompted by a glamor magazine article, she asked then-boyfriend Kip how much sex he would have if he could have as much as he wanted. His answer—5 or 6 times a week—is at odds with her once or twice a month. Joan has clearly read most of the sexperts' advice, as most of the short chapters refer to various approaches she tries, discards, and constructively critiques from a feminist perspective. Although her writing at times is funny and often insightful, I tire of Joan's issues towards the end. It's unclear how much effort she really has committed to the project, and seems a bit having-your-cake-and-eating-it-too; early on she led Kip to believe she was more interested in sex. I think the book would be more interesting if Kip wrote from his perspective as well.
