Making up for lost time she downloaded Tinder, which helped the author discover her “superpower.”

Talking to the New York Post about the newfound freedom Laura said: “You now have the freedom to do whatever you want. If you want to sleep with two men on the same day, you can.
“If you want to have a tryst in the middle of the day, you’re free. The only person who can judge you is yourself. And if you’re fine with it, screw everyone else.”
And for a year, Laura did just that, detailing her trysts in her newly published memoir Available.

“I didn’t buy into the theory that because I was older, I was less desirable. Men were very attracted to the fact I was a strong woman who didn’t want anything from them and was calling the shots,” explains Laura.
Juggling the school run and babysitter schedules with her burgeoning sex life, Laura had to plan ahead for many of these dates.
“If I was having a good date and a man would kiss me goodbye, I would tell them, OK, I have two hours. Let’s go back to your place,” she said.
Some men were a bit taken aback by her forthrightness, says Laura, but many were appreciative of her simple approach to love and lust.

Today, Williams has found herself in a relationship — but she is reluctant to label it as such. “I’ve gotten attached to someone. But I still hold out the openness to say, ‘If I wanted to have a one-night stand with someone, I could still do that.”
She also wants other women to realise just how much pleasure is out there — and how sex can be a powerful tool for moving past heartbreak, no matter your age.
