This woman took a year out from marriage to sleep with strangers - and wrote a book about it
A woman who took a gap year from her marriage in order to have sex with other people has released a book about the experience.
Writer Robin Rinaldi (50) and her husband Scott Mansfield, who have been married for more than 17 years, agreed to take a break from one another for a year to sleep with other people.
Prior to marrying her husband, Robin - who is from San Francisco - only had slept with three men and said her sex life 'lacked spontaneity and passion', the Independent said.
During the experimental year, Robin moved out of her home for five days a week.
The year of experiment came with three rules: Do not sleep with mutual friends, do not get into any serious relationships and do not have unprotected sex but the couple broke all three in the space of 12 months.
Throughout the year Robin slept with ten men and two women who she met online, in bars and a sex commune.
In her book she wrote: "I refuse to go to my grave with no children and only four lovers… If I can’t have one, I must have the other.
