"RedBook" Mag makes her see Red
The August '98 issue of Redbook magazine prompted one of its readers to
send the following letter to the editors. I wonder if they will have the
guts to publish it?
Now let's see. In one issue you have a so-called marital expert fluent in the

helpful guide on how to seduce one's husband (just how hard is that?), and a
handy keep-by-your-bedside list of things a woman can do to make her husband
happy (oh yeah, that would justify our existence!). Was this issue intended
to be a parody? An infinitely more helpful article for you to publish would

married girlfriends involve comparing our husband's endearing sexual
techniques such as the "wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am" or the "grab, pull, poke,
plunge" method. Oh, and don't forget their endearing "screw and snore"
routine. This one is especially pleasing to a wife. Please stop with these
stupid articles which are obviously intended for starry-eyed, twenty-something

are like me - married, with children and careers, in their 30's and 40's, who
don't have time to play games with men who can't find a clitoris OR their
