For seven years, Delaine Moore devoted herself to being the perfect wife and stay-at-home mom. Then, one day, she discovers her husband's infidelities, and suddenly she finds herself in a new role: 37 years old, mother of three . . . and going through a divorce. In the midst of this emotional turmoil, Moore discovers that her long-dormant libido has suddenly come aliveand, surprising even herself, she decides to listen to what it's saying.
The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom is the funny and empowering story of the physical and spiritual self-discovery that results from Moore's sexual awakening. Connecting with a fiery, daring side of her personality that has been subsumed by motherhood and marriage, Moore tries out everything from sex clubs and young gigolos to bondage and multi-partner sextesting her limits, reclaiming her body, and taking control of her life along the way. More than the story of a woman's breaking and remaking after divorce, The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom is a humorous, thoughtful exploration of what it means to be a mother and a sexual being, and a reminder that when life slams you down, a little fire won t burn youit will awaken you.
