LoveReading View on The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker

Mid-forties and with two kids, surely finding time time for sex must be difficult?  Not for Suzanne Portnoy who sets aside one whole weekend every month for this very purpose, but with complete strangers.  Fetish, clubs, internet sites and even naturist health clubs provide her with a willing string of men for her sexy liaisons.  Eye-opening stuff.

The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker Synopsis

‘At 29 I got married to live the life of the perfect wife with the gorgeous children. I did that for ten years, the last four of which I was completely celibate. Then I went online and everything changed…’

After a love affair with a man three thousand miles away, met online, Suzanne Portnoy – mother of two and a top executive in the entertainment industry – begins her sexual reawakening. Embarking on a sensational and prolific series of liaisons, Suzanne beds a top London chef, who cooks her a five-star meal on the day her husband moves out. An affair with a  famous men’s magazine editor quickly ensues, followed by a top cameraman who take pictures of Suzanne naked. But this is just the beginning. Insatiable, Suzanne dives into the swinging scene and works her way through an entire spectrum of sexual experience, including exhibitionism, group sex, fetish clubs, and a predilection for picking up men during her lunch hour.

Suzanne’s journey of self-discovery is anything but typical; her attitude towards sex and relationships even more unusual. The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker is a story that is shocking and heart-warming in equal measure. Freed from the restraints of marriage and monogamy, Suzanne takes pleasure without commitment and tells her story without a trace of shame. She’s not looking for Prince Charming anymore, but fun. And she finds it.
