What would you do if you were married to a lesbian?
This man sought escape in the beds of other women. But his lovely lesbian wife meant to pervert them, too!

From the back:

It was the oddest of affairs.
• Young Dave and his deviate wife…
• Young Dave and that cute little sex kitten, Marcie…
• Young Dave and the hotly passionate Madge — a kind of semi-pro specialist in slaking male lusts…
It wasn’t Dave’s fault, exactly. He was just trying to break the grip of a marriage that made him suffer and squirm. But he found that cracking the chains was not easy. His wife was not only beautiful but thoroughly depraved — and she meant to taint the women who dared to give him natural love.

Time On Her Hands—Men On Her Mind
Their marriage was ideal. Night after night of blissful live proved it; or so she thought. Then pretty Maggie Kelly found herself tucked away at a summer resort, while her husband remained city-bound—with his exotic, green-eyed secretary.
When word arrived that hubby and green eyes were cozily settled, Maggie went wild. She followed the example of her companion, teen-aged Dorothy Taylor, until then known as the easiest conquest on the beach. Maggie became even easier. Thus did she revenge herself on her husband—and at the same time, like Dorothy, learn what handsome beach bums had to offer.
But Dorothy, in a jealous fit, tipped off Maggie’s husband. He abandoned his cozy secretary and jet-footed it beachward to reclaim his man-hungry wife. What followed was ironical and bitter. To prove she wanted him back, Maggie had to unveil her charms for a leering neighbor…

Goodbye, Darling

Midwood F391 1964

There were times when she didn’t mind her husband calling to say that he’d be working late again at the office.

From the back

He was young and handsome and passionately virile. She was bored and restless and hopelessly vulnerable. He treated her the way no man had ever treated her… and made her love every shameless minute of it. He taught her_to do things that she would never dare to do even with her husband… and made her live for the time when she could do them again.
He was an irresistible drug and she became an incurable addict. It was wild and ugly and dark and consuming… the kind of love that couldn’t be analyzed but only experienced. She tried desperately to break the habit before it was too late… but she didn’t try hard enough.

A frank novel of broken vows and secret sins in a New York suburb that everybody knows

I don’t know what kind of foolish art director decided to crop out the peeping tom from this cover, but at least he used it on the back cover.

She brought her best friend’s husband to the motel to prove to him that his wife and her husband were having an affair. But while they waited for their respective spouses to check into the hot-pillow hideaway, she decided that they too could play at infidelity!
This is a frank and revealing novel of manners and morals in the suburbs. With candor and brutal honesty, it lays bare the wild joys and heartaches, the fear and insecurity that drive suburban couples into adultery and deceit.
