"I came from a background that taught me sex is something that men took and women gave," says Robin."After a sexual act, a woman had lost something and had given something, and the man had gained or taken something.
On paper, Robin Rinaldi had the perfect life: a beautiful home in a sought-after San Francisco neighbourhood, a handsome and devoted husband, a glamorous job as a magazine editor, and a social life that involved attending the city’s most exclusive parties. Robin was desperate to have a child, but her husband of 17 years, Scott Mansfield, had other ideas.After failing to persuade Scott to start a family with her, he had a vasectomy, rocking their marriage to the core. She had always tried to be the ‘good girl’ that her Catholic upbringing demanded, and had had just three sexual partners before she married Scott aged 26.
