And the winner of Getting Off: A Woman’s Guide to Masturbation, by Playgirl magazine columnist Jamye Waxman, is Amy, who wrote:

“Masturbation vs. making love is like comparing eating bag of chips to a full dinner. Both fix that urge of being hungry – but every now and then you really want the whole deal.”

Amy, please write to me offline so I can send you a copy of the book.

Single parents, you have another chance! This week, I’m giving away a copy of Desire: Women Write About Wanting, edited by Lisa Solod Warren.

“What do women want?” writes editor Warren on her website. “We want everything.”

In this collection of essays, Warren describes the intimacy she found only after leaving her first marriage. In “Still Horny After All These Years,” S.S. Fair drives home her point that sexual desire does not fade with age. “Desire has its own circulatory system,” she writes, and “as long as you’re upright and breathing, you’re riding its eternally recurring loop of lust and satiation.”

In another recent chat with Dr. Leah — author of the best selling The Complete Single Mother: Reassuring Answers to Your Most Challenging Concerns — we were talking about why single moms are the 24-karat, real stuff.

You are probably the kind of mother who puts her kids first. Lunches are set to go before bed. You wake up thinking about what to cook for dinner. You dole out goodnight kisses without a quota — and always find the energy to read just one more story. You pay the bills on time. You make sure that your kids’ homework is done on time — and done well. You have a savings account. You schedule dentist and doctor appointments.

If you have an ex-husband, you’re doing the best you can to manage whatever challenges he places in your path. In short, you’re working hard and smart at single parenting. You’ve got a system for running things at home at least until the next crisis, but you’re managing those so much better, too. (Or, maybe you always managed on your own?)

But let’s face it, somewhere buried down deeply, there’s a woman. Maybe you miss the touch and feel of a man. Maybe you fantasize about having your own space with a lock on the door. Maybe you long to take a steamy bubble bath — without interruptions.

Tell us what you desire:

Do you want to go on a hot date for Valentine’s Day?

Do you want a night off to do as you please?

Do you want a room of your own?

Do you want to have more money in your savings account?

Let us hear all about it!
