Sex Week: What Your Husband Really Wants

After having kids (and all the body changes and exhaustion that come with it), intimacy can be tough to re-establish. Sex therapist Ian Kerner tells us what men really crave in bed—and it's not as racy as you'd think:
Cuddle time: "Now that there's someone else competing for your time and attention, [men] yearn for the physical and emotional connection that comes with a simple snuggle. Sure, all things considered, we'd prefer to have sex and then cuddle. And for some men, the cuddle is welcome because it gives us a tiny shred of hope that you want more (yes, even though we know we have to get up early tomorrow)."
How has your sex life changed since kids? Tell us in the comments.
