You've either done it or know someone who has: the one-night stand, the familiar outcome of a night spent at a bar, sometimes the sole payoff for your friend's irritating wedding, or the only relief from a disastrous vacation. Often embarrassing and uncomfortable, occasionally outlandish, but most times just a necessary and irresistible evil, the one-night stand is a social rite as old as sex itself and as common as a bar stool Enter Chelsea Handler. Gorgeous, sharp, and anything but shy, Chelsea loves men and lots of them. My Horizontal Life chronicles her romp through the different bedrooms of a variety of suitors, a no-holds-barred account of what can happen between a man and a sometimes very intoxicated, outgoing woman during one night of passion. From her short fling with a Vegas stripper to her even shorter dalliance with a well-endowed little person, from her uncomfortable tryst with a cruise ship performer to her misguided rebound with a man who likes to play leather dress-up, Chelsea recalls the highs and lows of her one-night stands with hilarious honesty. Encouraged by her motley collection of friends (aka: her partners in crime) but challenged by her family members (who at times find themselves a surprise part of the encounter), Chelsea hits bottom and bounces back, unafraid to share the gritty details. My Horizontal Life is one guilty pleasure you won't be ashamed to talk about in the morning.

stale sex talk for alcoholics

If you expect sizzling erotic or honest sex talk, you got the wrong book. What you got is a string of unrelated and supposedly provoking tales of one-night-stands with the only common denominator of boring and bland prose. Unfortunately it is not even close to story telling, it sounds more like an enumeration of events with a little bit of added detail.

True, there a flashes of humor now and then, but you really have to lower your standards to get a laugh out of them. Is it really funny to have skid marks in your underwear or your boyfriend has to climb out of the window, because father is coming home unexpectedly? Ha, ha, how incredibly hilarious.

The worst part is the mindless and repetitive praising of alcohol and drugs. I never read a book before, where a constant state of drunkenness is regarded as the ideal life form. Overall the book is talking more about alcohol and dope excesses than sex.

Another painful aspect is the infantile regurgitating of common clichés, black guys have huge dicks, good looking guys are dumb, but good in bed etc.

Unfortunately I can't help it, it is one of the worst books, I ever read.
