Husbandry: Sex, Love & D. Fried (The New Rabbi) here collects 31 columns he wrote for Ladies' Home Journal on the humorous conflicts that occur when an immovable object (the husband) meets an irresistible force (the wife). These include why men wouldn't mind cleaning up their dirty socks or dishes once a year, why low-carb diets have helped men turn dieting into an extreme sport, why naked guys in a locker room is the one situation where men truly and consistently talk a lot and why making out with a wife is the sexiest Valentine's Day gift.
Fried also wrote the investigative books Bitter Pills: Inside the Hazardous World of Legal Drugs and The New Rabbi, as well as a collection of essays on marriage, Husbandry. A two-time winner of the National Magazine Award, he has written frequently for Vanity Fair, GQ, The Washington Post Magazine, Smithsonian, Rolling Stone, Glamour, and Philadelphia Magazine.
