I’ve spent years observing, analyzing, and experiencing women’s work/life issues.
And yet I don’t think I’ve ever heard the topic of sex brought up. Let alone NoTimeForSex or TooTiredForSex.
So this article Sex and the Working Mom, caught my attention.
Author Herminia Ibarra breaks it down:
“At one of the companies with which I work there is a legendary story about work life balance. The firm’s most senior line woman was asked to join a newly constituted high-level diversity committee, which included the company CEO. One of the hurdles that was holding women back, everyone agreed, was the high degree of transcontinental travel required of executives in the uppermost echelons, who had to attend a variety of global and regional meetings. Asked about her experience, she told the high-level group: “Let me tell you what diversity means to me. My husband told me ‘there will be sex in this house at least once a week, whether you are here or not.”
Whoah. Yep, it’s a real topic. And my spidey sense tells me that NOT talking about it holds us back.
Curious what you think?
