10:31 am
season but sometimes a large print, as you can see on jen, is really just really doing nothing for her shape. so we want to get her a print -- >> like a knew knew. >> right. so flowy tops are so in but by choosing this print that's more a vertical print going downwards, it's much more flattering. obviously leggings are an all-season stayable. these are from yummy. i love them because they have built in shaping and all over compression so they're instantly slimming her. >> can we show a side by side for a second? >> and showing that little skin at the ankle, too, helps create a thinner appearance. and then i gave her some wedges because as we know we love wedges, they give us a little boost. these are from crocs, superaffordable for under 60 bucks, a hint of print and giving her that boost making her look thinner. >> that's great. thanks, jen. >> so let's talk about accessorizing. sometimes you think -- and we have

if intimacy, your sex and marriage have become a thing of the past, you've come to the right place. >> we talk to two contributors to "prevention" magazine who talk about sexless marriages. >> hi, guys. seems every four or five month wes all get together and talk about the same problem. what's going on? >> what is a sexless marriage? is it zero sex at all? >> well, 20% of marriages are sexless. experts tend to say that's -- when you're having sex less than ten times a year. i actually think it's a matter of perceptions but because you know we're all busy and, you
10:49 am
know, you can still be attracted to your partner, you can still be interested in your partner -- >> and still very much in love. >> but not necessarily having sex. on the other hand, you could be lying next to somebody and feel a million miles apart and feel very desperate. so to me that's when it's sexless. >> it's age as well. >> well, it could be a stage-of-life issue but there's a difference between not having a lot of physical explicit sex acts versus a lot of other intimate touching, sensuality going on in a relationship. >> what do you do when one member of the couple wants to have more sex and the other is just done with it? what do you do in that situation? >> the first issue is really that we don't talk about it. we think we're mind readers. so we wait until a problem has festered for a really long time before we discuss it and then it's an explosion. >> i think in this culture we have this idea that desire should be spontaneous and sex should always just
10:50 am
>> should be natural. >> and i think that that's very much of a hollywood pressure. i think often if you take the time to be with your partner, to connect, to put your body through the motions to get aroused, arousal, we talk about this in the article, really comes before desire. we think of desire as the beginning of sex, it's actually sometimes a little more like the early middlesex. >> what does that mean?
