The Horny Housewife: Suzy Soccer Mom

Suzy is in her late 30s/early 40s, married, with kids around 8-10 years old. She likely married young – maybe to her high school or college sweetheart. She still loves him, but he works all the time. In the recent past she occupied herself with her kids, but now with them in school all day she feels unimportant, and lonely.

Suzy may have a drinking problem – maybe tipples a bit too much in the afternoon. She occasionally even drives the kids home from school while under the influence. She is ashamed of this. She writes off the drinking as just a way to relax, and sticks to things like wine spritzers or just a bit of vodka in her orange juice to help feed her denial. She may also find comfort in easily obtained prescriptions for painkillers and pills that help her relax. The family doctor is very understanding, but never asks if she drinks with her pills or how many she really takes.

Suzy has local affairs. They don’t last long as “love” is not the goal – she does it for excitement and as a distraction. At times when in-between affairs she goes from spa to spa looking for the right male “therapist” who will go a step (or two) further than just a massage. Without much thought Suzy has picked up a guy or two at the local grocery store and even made several delivery guys and servicemen uncomfortable watching her wander around the house in revealing lingerie as they attempt to work.

Suzy has no sense of purpose and when sober can feel desperately lonely. Often bored, she will go out shopping and often spends money on things she really doesn’t need. Her husband may question the credit card bill, but she handily shuts him down by suggesting maybe if he were home a little more often she wouldn’t have so much time to shop.

Why She Seeks Treatment

Suzy might end up in treatment because her husband catches on to one of her affairs. Or maybe one day he comes home early to find her passed out from a bad combination of alcohol abuse and pills. Most likely it’s the alcohol issue that gets her first.

When her husband asks her to go into treatment her sexual behavior is revealed in a family therapy session. Or perhaps while really trying to get sober Suzy does her Fourth Step inventory and is shocked to find how much secrecy and denial she has surrounding her sexual behavior. Ultimately she wants a life that works. Wanting to both save her marriage and feel alive again she seeks help to stop her behavior.
