“Dalma Heyn shows us a new reality and a tantalizing hint of the future—and neither women nor marriage will ever be the same.” —Gloria Steinem
“Heyn addresses the sexual double standard as well as current myths about female sexuality.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Women who expected themselves to be monogamous and committed to being perfect wives found themselves, for varying reasons, in extra-marital relationships that brought them much pleasure; a renewed sense of sexuality, vitality, and autonomy; and very little guilt. Readers, especially women, will find the book interesting and thought provoking.” —Library Journal
