"A thoughtful and engaging dive into the post-partum bedroom. I found myself surprisingly inspired and heartily concurring with the passionate Ms. Ford!" --Christie Mellor, author of The Three-Martini Playdate and Were You Raised by Wolves?"Hot and hopeful, Hump shows us that post-partum sex is not only possible, but a beautiful thing to be desired in itself. This book should be on every tired mommy's night stand, next to her vibrator." --Erika Schickel, author of You're Not the Boss of Me"Hide it where the kids won't find it! This bawdy memoir, written by a self-described 'pro-sex' mom, is what every parent needs to spice up the daily dose of diaper changing and drool. A celebration of sex in the context of marriage, Ford's Hump will inspire more adult playtime and greater intimacy with your spouse." --Jennifer Margulis, author of Why Babies Do That"Racy, fun and intelligent, this book should be required reading for new parents. It's a sure-cure for even the worst case of wilted libido." --Cindy La Ferle, award-winning journalist and author of Writing Home"Hump is like an invitation to the circle of friends every mother needs...the women who make her feel safe, challenged, respected, and most of all, entertained." --Martha Brockenbrough, author of It Could Happen to You: Diary of a Pregnancy and Beyond"Written with honesty, style and wit--Ford's stories assure us that a lifetime of passionate humping can be ours!" --Brett Paesel, author of Mommies Who Drink: Sex, Drugs and Other Distant Memories of an Ordinary Mom"Finally a book about sex after children that isn't a saccharine, maudlin, mess." --Pepper Schwartz, author of Prime: Adventures and Advice on Sex, Love and the Sensual Years"Blunt and funny, Hump is California-Kim's definitive antidote to post-partum depression, detailing the frankly explicit solo and partnered thrills of sex. She invites us to appreciate her evidence: our reproductive imperative enhances rather than impedes healthy genital friction." --Lynn Margulis, Distinguished University professor, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Department of Geosciences, co-author with Dorion Sagan of Mystery Dance: On the Evolution of Human Sexuality
