Once you've conquered your first time back in the saddle, it's time to focus on gaining – and maintaining – momentum. Between a lil one's unpredictable sleep schedule, your return to the working world and daily activities, it's a wonder moms can even keep up.
Kristen Chase's The Mominatrix's Guide to Sex, A No-Surrender Advice Book for Naughty Moms offers some tongue-in-cheek humor to get you focused.
- Sleep-deprived mamas and cozy beds don't equal great sex. "When you're the mom of a small baby, you're probably running on fumes . . . you are much more likely to enjoy sex, or at least stay awake during it, if you attempt it somewhere else."
- Go to the videotape. Consider watching some porn together, either online or on video to get you in the mood (or at least loosen you up a bit). Or, if you are concerned about having the DVDs laying about, check out your cable subscriptions – HBO and Showtime offer plenty of shows that can get the job done.
- Sexting – It's not just for teens. There has been a lot of news recently about teens' use of sexting and how dangerous it can be for them. But you are an adult, so some risque texts and a few strategic photos sent to your partner could get things going when you both get home.
