Ditch the old habits--like calling him "honey," -- for a sexier, steamier relationship
It's the everyday things we say and do that sabotage our sexual chemistry, and calling him sweet, androgynous words like "honey" is only the beginning.
Stop Calling Him Honey and Start Having Sex--a smart, sassy, and honest guide for women of all ages--looks at the root cause of sexual boredom in a revolutionary way. Authors Julienne Davis and Maggie Arana dare to pull back the sheets to examine the subtle yet powerful ways we're dulling our desire for each other and give readers tangible solutions to ultimately rekindle the fire in the relationship.
While other books recommend date nights and sex in different locations, this non-therapy-speak guide argues that these are only short-term solutions. The truth is, if you don't feel like having sex anymore, forcing yourselves to do it on the kitchen table is not going to fix the problem.
Instead, Stop Calling Him Honey and Start Having Sex delves into concepts such as why terms of endearment such as "honey" can be harmful, and how sharing everything, including hygiene habits can hinder sexual desire and attraction. The authors also show how arguing is an important factor in bringing couples closer together, why it is critical to maintain a sense of individuality, and how sexuality doesn't hinge on having the perfect body but rather on how a woman feels about herself and how she projects those feelings to her partner.
Already the accolades from professionals are pouring in: "I'm not sure if familiarity breeds contempt in marriage, but I'm sure it breeds boredom in the bedroom. If you and your husband are in a sexual rut, Davis and Arana will help dig you out by offering you concrete advice for rekindling the juiciness you felt when you first met. Their counter-intuitive yet effective suggestions will bring out the sexual siren in you and bring back passion to your relationship." --Michele Weiner-Davis, author of "The Sex-Starved Marriage" and "The Sex-Starved Wife
" "I love it It's smart, sassy and savvy Controversial enough to get press, but pragmatic enough to help people because it's based upon differentiation--an important concept in relationship and family systems.

"What a refreshing take on an old theme--keeping sex alive in long-term relationships. Maggie and Julienne let us have it straight from the gut, without therapy-speak. Their down-to-earth advice could revolutionize your marriage, and also help you rediscover your vibrant, fun-loving self." --Gina Ogden, Ph.D., author of "The Return of Desire"
