Conjugal Love was written in the original Italian (L'amore conjugale), by Alberto Moravia in 1947. It was first translated into English in 1951, and has since a new translation by Marina Harss was published by Other Press in 2007.

The novel is written in the first person by a rich Italian dilettante who has gone with his wife to the countryside to attempt to write a novel. The situation is complicated, however, by the couple's decision to remain abstinent throughout this period, and the wife's accusation that her husband's barber has tried to molest her.
