The Erotic Silence of the American Wife by Dalma Heyn

Short review: this first appeared on my Goodreads account. 3 stars (at best).

A series of interviews with women who have had affairs and felt it helped their lives and/or their marriages. This book does not stand up as a serious “study” into why women have affairs, but it does stand up as valuable insight.

In the sense that it provides a window into the frustrations and the libidos of married women, instead of men, it is ground breaking.

Marriage is all about compromises and this illustrates when perhaps too many compromises were made up front.
