On Attraction and Appeal

“A wife cannot loaf around the house in slovenly and unattractive garb, screech at the children all through every evening, and sleep in curlers six nights in a row, then expect to overcome a week of half-repulsion in a few minutes of desperate appeal. A husband cannot expect to speak gruffly, bathe infrequently, and strew his clothes around the bedroom, then inspire wifely response with a few quick caresses.”
