    The Art of Sleeping Alone - Sophie Fontanel

    Kathryn's next guest is chief editor of the iconic French edition of Elle Magazine & so perhaps it is somewhat unlikely that editor of a publication synonymous with femininity & attraction, has written a book entitled "The Art of Sleeping Alone: Why One French Woman Suddenly Gave Up Sex".   Sophie Fontanel took a sabbatical from sex which lasted 12 years & her key message is “No sex is better than bad sex”  & she joins us from a studio in Paris.
