Talking about sex and kids

Jake with Tobey Maguire who is holding his daughter Ruby Sweetheart. Maybe did Tobey's nighttime affect his routine? Jake can learn from Tobey in daddy issues.

"Dr. Leah Klungness and Rachel Sarah: When you picked up the most recent issue of Elle -- in which Reese Witherspoon chats happily about her new love, Jake Gyllenhaal -- did you wonder what we did?

Are they having sex when her kids are in the next room?

It's a logical question. After all, following her 2005 divorce from Ryan Phillippe, Reese became a single mom of two kids -- Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4.

Sure, if asked, Reese might be publicly say, "There is no sex unless the kids are with Dad." She might also have plenty of privacy in her palatial digs.

But we're all grown-ups here, right? We all know what happens behind closed doors after the kids are asleep.

Why should Reese and Jake be different than other couples in love?

Happily, things are different now. Jake is an important, fulfilling part of your life. Likely, both of your kids adore him. You're in love and we're thrilled for you.

When kids sense change -- especially after they've experienced "bad change" such as a parents' divorce, their natural curiosity intensifies. This is why we are going to give you the same advice that we offer other single moms who are having sex when their kids are home".
