Sex by Numbers
The day after Lucie Maddox’s husband James announces, “It’s not working,” and that he’s leaving her after the best part of thirty years of supposedly monogamous marriage, she finds a magazine article suggesting that she’s been living like a nun. In particular, she reads that the average woman has had thirteen partners by the time she’s fifty. At forty-nine, she’s only had two, and the first hardly counted.
That evening, she finds some pornographic videos on James’s computer, which serves as even more of an eye opener.
Her best friend Jenny guides her towards the uncharted waters of Internet dating, so beginning a truly rollercoaster education. Be warned, this novel contains strong language and explicit sex scenes.
“A corker of a book.”
