Hot Mama (A Review)

I was pretty excited when I saw "Hot Mama: 12 Secrets To A Sizzling Marriage" was up for review!  This book is written by Kathi Lipp and Erin Macpherson - I have read books or pieces from both authors and enjoyed them, so I was interested to see how they addressed the issue of having a good sex life as a mom.

First off, I think this book is helpful not just for current "hot mamas", but for any married lady who wants to improve her sex life, whether she has kids already or not.  A lot of the chapters and advice could be applied to more general married life situations, not just the "married with kids" category.

I've read a couple other Christian books on sex, and I would say that this one is a good, comfortable one to start with if you have never really thought about reading a book on sex.  Macpherson and Lipp cover a lot of common issues or concerns in a non-threatening, friend-to-friend kind of tone, without getting terribly explicit on the details.  I also really liked that the authors encourage talking to other trusted, Christian "hot mamas" to keep each other accountable in not letting sex become infrequent or boring in our marriages.

The only negative I have with this book was that I felt like a few of the answers in the Q&A sections were a little too generalized or vague - but for the scope of this book, the answers were still appropriate, and there were some other resources given for people who want more in-depth answers.  

The only answer that I felt was inadequate was a question addressing what is morally appropriate within a Christian marriage - the answer basically said that as long as husband and wife are both comfortable with something, it is okay.  I disagree with that, because there are some things that are not permissible  in the sex lives of married Christians ever, regardless of the level of comfort of the husband and wife - like p.orn or three.somes, for example.  It may seem like listing these things would be stating the obvious, but in today's sex-saturated culture, I don't think it necessarily is. So I wish that answer had been more specific.

Overall, I enjoyed this book, and whether you are a mom trying to figure out how to make your sex life with your husband happen, or a wife hoping for a little encouragement to be more outgoing in the sexual aspect of your marriage, this book is a great one to ease you into getting things going.

Note: I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for a review.  This is my honest opinion.
