Love and Marriage Tips on TV

Here I am, discussing sexytime like I'm some sort of expert. Sigh...
A couple of weeks ago, we gathered all your tips and advice and created a ginormous post called: "The Mommyland Guide to a Marriage that Doesn't Suck Gonads". And honestly, I was really proud of it. I learned so much from all the things you guys had to say.

But it was long, REALLY long. Because there was so much good stuff that I didn't want to leave any of it out. But I also think being so long makes it hard for people to read.

So I tried to make it shorter and more sound-bytey so that I could get your good advice out to a wider audience. I am very interested in your feedback on how it turned out. Pretty please, check it out and tell me what you think.

You can read it here.

Meanwhile, our friends at Let's Talk Live asked me to come on and discuss what we learned from this experiment. Other than feeling sort of nervous and twitchy, I was less nauseous than usual and I think that shows. See for yourself:

  1. Great Job! It sucks to be put on the spot and have all eyes did great..and yes your readers are geniuses (otherwise we wouldn't be reading your blog...duh!)

  2. Awesome, Lydia!!! You looked like a total professional :)

  3. You did an awesome job! Love it!!

  4. First... fab sweater! Would love to know where you got it.

    Second, you were clearly so much more relaxed and it was AWESOME to watch! Great job!

  5. Love this piece! Get a stylist! Don't wear that black outfit anymore!! or add some accessories and I don't mean fresh boobstains.
    Thus endeth the lesson.

    1. I'm sorry Martha, I tried to leave your comment alone and not let it bother me, but I just can't. I think your comment is really rude and uncalled for. First off, she looks great. Second, who asked you to comment on her attire? Sheesh, give a momma a break! I wonder if you were joking, but if so, you missed the mark girlie. Not classy.

  6. I think you did a FANTASTIC job, on the post and on the show. I got all choky and sobby, which sucked because you said it was supposed to be a train wreck and I was all set for a good laugh. Yay, Lydia!

  7. This interview should go WORLDWIDE! I think it has some fabulous information, in terms that anyone can understand, which could help so many marriages. But, let's put it real... the "men are not mind-readers" thing is not quite right. It should be "men are dumb and lazy". LOL I can't tell you how many times I've literally grabbed and stroked my husband in the middle of the day, OR flat out stated that I wanted to have sex OR came to bed in a sexy outfit and he STILL doesn't get the hint that I'm initiating sex! The only way he gets that I'm doing that is if I just start actually doing it! But, then, again... that's how he starts it, too!

  8. Lydia,
    Good job! I love that you don't "take the bait" your hosts might try to give you -- you stick to the truth and don't editorialize or rant for them and their soundbites :)
    Yay! Yay you!

  9. You look like a pro! Way to go.

  10. synopsis is great and you are just as witty and wise in person (on TV) as you are on the blog. and this marriage post was one of my all time favorites. just plain great advice.

  11. I agree with Monica, you are just as witty and wise on tv ! awesome job on the interview!
    Adored your use of the term "cra cra" . some women just can't pull that off!

  12. You are adorable! Great job on sticking to your guns and topic. You did great!

  13. YOU.WERE.AWESOME! Apparently, you are way more comfortable talking about sexy time than doling out parental advice. lol

  14. You are incredibly well spoken! Great job :)

  15. I am so impressed! Excellent appearance, great advice, you came off funny and smart and someone I'd like to be friends with. Congratulations!

  16. Love this piece! Get a stylist! Don't wear that black outfit anymore!! or add some accessories and I don't mean fresh boobstains.
    Thus endeth the lesson. - See more at love and marriage
