Read it. Twice. Will re-read it. Once I got past the caustic first paragraphs to see what she was trying to say under "caution", it made a bit more sense.

Problem with it is that it also makes NFP sound like it is peaches and cream and the answer to all things. It is not. Couples are different. Though it is nice to see something in there about what women need to do as well. It is usually the guy who gets the blame for just wanting sex, NFP aside.

I agree with this part in particular. I think that general notion is very unfair toward men.

Like this one: Posted by Patrick on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 8:00 AM (EST):
I dunno about #8…laughing around my naked wife has never scored me many points…


Had me ROFLOL!!

Great article but I feel the issue of striking the balance between being loving and affectionate with each other yet not going overboard wasn't given sufficient attention... Or maybe it was just me and DH who struggled with that one, A LOT!

I know. I am totally losing my touch. I think that's what happens when you can't see your toes anymore. You lose your touch.
