Athol Kay, a former Christian almost-minister-turned-atheist writes this blog, which is very definitely aimed at heterosexual, monogamy oriented men who also believe in the value of marriage. The blog is not so much personal anecdotes, although you will read some parenting stories and bits about his relationship with wife Jennifer on occasion. Rather, it's intended to be advice for his target audience, to have better sex lives within their marriages. I have no doubt that many people will be turned off by the completely blunt and seemingly calculated ideas - however, much as anyone wants to believe in rose-tinted happy-ever-after-ness, there are some truths to how (most) people tend to work, psychologically and biologically. What much of Kay's advice seems to boil down to is this: "improve yourself if you want to be more attractive, and thus have more sex", "marriage is not a pass to let yourself go" (for either gender), "you can control your own behavior, not anyone else's". These are all good ideas, just be advised that they are delivered with the humor and tone one might find in, oh, maybe Maxim magazine? I just have to remember that I'm not the target audience, so the delivery is not meant to appeal to me. At the end of the day, if you're a monogamously married man, I think his advice is actually quite good - but then I'm happily married to an alpha-beta mix quite a bit like what his advice points to, so take that for what it's worth. Incidentally, Kay does mention on the author page that he wants to turn this into a book at some point. I can only say that I hope he finds himself a good editor, as the current posts quite often have spelling and grammatical errors that can be distracting.
