Imagine this:

A rousing quickie on a random Tuesday night after a long day to help you unwind—after your husband has put the kids to bed.

A delicious, confidence-boosting self-pleasuring session on a Thursday afternoon, before racing to an important pitch meeting.

A long, playful lovemaking session on a leisurely Sunday morning, after you’ve sent the kids out of the house with a sitter.

Only in your dreams, right? Wrong, mama! What if I told you that this isn’t just a scene out of a Harlequin romance novel that’s been collecting dust in the attic. Yes, it is possible to be a working mother AND still be a #Boss in bed. How do I know? Because the above three scenarios describe my current love life. Each and every week. With my husband of 13 years.
