In her new book "Having a Baby . . . When the Old-Fashioned Way Isn't Working," Playboy pin-up model Cindy Margolis discloses how she had non-stop sex on her honeymoon in order to conceive. In addition to the beach, in the ocean, while swimming with dolphins, on a swing, in a tree, on a beach chair, in a cabana, in the woods, and around the coral reef, she says she had sex with Guy Starkman her husband , even under the snack bar.
"But it didn't work. I must be going nuts," she recalls. "I thought I was being punished for my past mistakes like I should never have cheated on my first love", she adds.
AdvertisementIn her new book, Margolis writes of the methods she used in her attempts to start a family.
"I set up a baby shrine next to my bed . . . I wrote letters to my unborn baby. I lit fertility candles, saw a psychic and then a healer, and even had my stomach blessed by a priest, a rabbi and a minister. When all that didn't work, I was convinced it was because God saw through me," Margolis writes.
Margolis soon became very obsessed. Whenever she thought she was ovulating, she demanded her husband rush home to her.
"I would call Guy off the basketball court, out of a meeting, away from a family function, and even home early from a business trip . . . I even told him once that if he didn't get home within 10 minutes and have sex with me, I would find someone else who would", she remembers.
Hopeless years of trying, led Margolis to consult specialists who recommended in vitro fertilization and surrogacy.
In 2002 Margolis gave birth to son, Nicholas Isaac. Three years later she had twin girls, Sabrina and Sierra, through a surrogate. "Please, never give up the faith," she now comforts others .
