Less Sex For Busy Women Says Jilly Cooper

By Ekaterina Mironova

British novelist Jilly Cooper is a 75-year old self-made author with a string of extremely successful romantic novels behind her name. She made it big in the 80s thanks her to racy insights into the female libido and avid promotion of feminine sexuality in her tales of love, lust and intrigue. And, while you’d imagine that 2012 would be more sexually adventurous and erotically exciting than the 1980s, you might be alarmed to hear that the award-winning author reports that today’s women don’t want to have sex anymore because they’ve got too much on their plates.

In a recent interview with the Telegraph, Cooper said: “Doctors’ waiting rooms are absolutely brimming these days with women suffering from low libidos. I have talked to a lot of young women about this, and they just don’t seem to do it anymore.”

“Honestly, I suppose it’s because we all have so many other demands on our time now,” she added.

With the added pressures of running a family, looking after the house and taking care of kids, many professional businesswomen find themselves very low on me-time, with even less time left for their partners and their sex lives.

Although, statistically, those women who take time out from their busy lives are more likely to enjoy sexual encounters, it seems that at least the majority of busy professionals haven’t forgotten that they have libidos (somewhere) thanks to authors like Jilly Cooper and E L James’s 50 Shades of Grey.

“Porn was terribly out of fashion before that book came out,” Cooper says. “While I have heard that it is quite poorly written, I am delighted that it’s giving a new lease of life to the [romance] genre.”

The notorious 50 Shades of Grey hasn’t only given the romance genre a new lease of life, it has also inspired Jilly Cooper to add more sexiness to her new novel. “I’ve got jockeys jumping on top of jockeys and horses jumping on top of horses.”
