Sharing successes...or sharing dreams?

Sharon Anderson, 37
Jim Anderson, 46
Married eight years

SHARON: Doing something I love and being successful at it is what really makes me feel sexy. For example, I direct a local high school musical each spring. When the show finally goes up on opening night and I feel proud of the work, it's exciting for me to have Jim in the audience to share it with. I feel strong and accomplished — and therefore desirable.

JIM: Whenever Sharon talks about having children, she projects an aura that I find irresistible. We've both been involved in kids' organizations for years, and I already have two kids of my own from my first marriage. Since my girls were toddlers, Sharon has been there for them — not as a substitute mom, but as their friend and guiding hand. I love her all the more for what she has given the girls, and I want nothing more in the world than to have a baby with her. This shared desire gives our lovemaking an undertone of tenderness and purpose. Thinking of her as a mom makes her incredibly sexy to me.

Hot mama...or earth mother?

Sandra Juliano, 36
Michael Juliano, 43
Married seven years

SANDRA: I feel sexiest when I go through the "transformation" from mom to woman. I switch from sneakers to heels and from baby-food-stained clothing to a clean and stylish outfit. I put on Chanel perfume and take out my scrunchie and let my hair fall to my shoulders — without having to worry about my kids pulling it or getting syrup in it! I walk and talk differently — I feel different. There's no heavy diaper bag weighing me down on one side, and there is never any mention of SpongeBob or Lightning McQueen. I go from being an active mom who reads silly stories about talking cars and who blows raspberries with the baby to the adventurous and flirty girl Michael met 11 years ago.

MICHAEL: To me, Sandra is sexiest whenever I see her interact with our children. When my wife and I were dating, I was always intrigued by the way she was with kids. Her warmth, tenderness, and caring way seemed so natural. I was already intensely attracted to her, but envisioning her as the mother of my children made her even hotter.

Recently, when our family went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner, my youngest son started to dance to the Spanish music that played in the background. A huge smile came over Sandra's face and she joined him to dance in the middle of the restaurant. Her focus was not on who was watching or whether she was being "appropriate" — connecting with our son was all that mattered. It was a beautiful sight, and I could not wait to take home the gorgeous woman dancing in front of me.
