Read excerpts from her interview below!
On keeping a man happy: What I say in the book is, “A BJ a day keeps the divorce attorney away” and I say that because I feel like men are profoundly simplistic, which is the reason I wanted to call my book what I used as the title of chapter three, which is, “Stomach Full, Penis Empty: A Woman’s Guide to a Happy Marriage.” Keeping him fed and drained, you have no problem. We are really more complicated than they are and I think that women are more generous with oral sex because we nurture by nature. We want to be pleasing by nature, that’s in our DNA, so I think that a lot of the behavior we’re looking for sexually, you might have to educate your partner. Sometimes, men just assume they’re going to get it and you need to be like, “Give me mine. Ladies first.”
On communicating sexual needs: What’s so interesting is that [women are] more willing to have conversations about “Do you want to get married? Where do you see this relationship going? Do you want to have children?” than we are to ask, “What kind of sex do you like? What are you into there?” You know what I mean? And that’s a conversation that a lot of people dive into but if you’re going to be with someone for the rest of your life and they’re failing to meet your sexual needs is like doing a slow dance with death. We need to make sure we can meet right there in the middle. The best thing that could have ever happened to me, and I was so fearful when I did it, was I got my tubes tied and had a hysterectomy. It gives me and my husband a different liberty — we can do what we do anytime, anywhere, at a moment’s notice. So that’s a sidebar into my situation, but I can get the party started.
On her first mistake: When I first met my husband, I said that I didn’t like him because I thought he was too serious. My friend introduced me and I was like, “I don’t like this guy. He’s so serious.” And you know me, I like to have fun and I said, “I don’t like him, I pass.” And then my friend looked over my shoulder and saw him talking to another woman — and he was laughing and holding court, he was the life of the party — and she said, “Who is that bitch talking to your new husband?” And I turned around, “Girl, you’re right! That is my husband, I’ve got to get over there and get my man back.” So my husband always says that it was competition that brought us together and I’m like, “No, it was not competition, it was the fact that I said I only saw one side of you and made the mistake of judging you just for that one side.” And now I kid you not, and I know every comedian in the world, nobody makes me laugh harder than my husband.
