Overview

"Kimberly Ford is a gift to every woman who accidentally left her sex life in the maternity ward. "Hump" is brainy and earthy and downright inspiring." Kelly Corrigan, author of "The Middle Place"

Cheerfully honest, sometimes startling and just a bit dirty HUMP is a smart, subversive look behind real-life parental bedroom doors

"Hump" puts the lie to the conventional wisdom that once your children are born, your sex life dies. "Hump" is the chronicle of how a wide variety of couples have reclaimed their former, more sexy selves even amid the chaos of households teeming with young children. "Hump" is organized into thought-providing sections, including chapters such as:
--"Back in the Saddle" (first-time-after-childbirth sex)
--"I touch myself" (self ahem explanatory)
--"Snip " (vasectomies)
--"Snap " (what happens when the condom breaks)

By turns poetic and informative, "Hump" will inspire women to reclaim their bodies for themselves and their husbands, and to make sex a priority in their own lives no matter how many scuffed sneakers they have to kick out of the way to make it to bed."

  • Reviewer: Staff

Journalist Ford's debut, a collection of essays about how sexuality changes after children are added to the marital equation, is a flaccid affair. Despite the abundance of steamy vernacular, the author's tepid and detached delivery—and fondness for third-party reportage—make her come across as removed and impassive. Ford is a clunky stylist; her choice to refer to couples in her bawdy anecdotes as “baby Nate's mom” and “Lucas' young dad” stunt much of the book's comedic—and carnal—potential. Moments that should have left readers hooting and blushing—such as an explosively flatulent infant in bed with a couple engaged in vigorous lovemaking—fail to deliver. The chapters “Pleasure Party” and “Kinderotics” do entertain in their descriptions of women-only crowds attempting to reclaim or augment their sexual prowess through erotic dancing and myriad sex toys. Ford is capable of movingly depicting the pure doggedness of lust after childbirth and child-rearing and inspires with stories of rekindled passion; when she goes for laughs, however, her book falls flat.
