    I was so disconnected from Madsen for the bulk of this book because she kept insisting that she loved her husband and yet she kept him at an unforgivable distance for months while she wrestled with her sexuality and her desires I would have been entirely in her corner, cheering her journey on, if she hadn t kept inventing reasons not to tell her husband anything Nothing Not a word Sexual fidelity isn t important to me, never ha

    To be honest, reading this was like drinking sweet, cool, clear, drenching water after decades of parched desert I left the book heartily hungry and upset with the kind of grief that Ms Madsen mentions in Chapter 16 The book simply came along at the same time I m walking across my own heaving Tacoma Narrows bridge from a dark life of quiet desperation to some kind of unrecognizable life of vibrant resonance The book comes in two lay

    Very disappointing The writing and story wasn t bad and the intimate details don t offend me but what I was really hoping for wasof an acceptance of body image, not what I perceive as a betrayal of a marriage Why couldn t she just talk to her husband first, before starting out on this journey She might have been able to find great pleasures experimenting WITH her husband, not secretly with other men I feel bad for Gavin why change names

    The sex in this book is very, very hot to me The ethics of paying for erotic services behind one s spouse s back is troubling, in my opinion, and that colored my enjoyment of the rest of the book Which is unfortunate, since the story is otherwise well written and liberating and interesting Also, I feel like the ending was abrupt and the epilogue detailing the author s loss of her blog and then her job because of her company s reaction to her lifestyle held
