Gorgeous, sharp, and anything but shy, Chelsea Handler loves men ... and lots of them.

My Horizontal Life chronicles her romp through the 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.

The book is a raucous collection of true-life experiences of actress and comedian Chelsea Handler. She recalls her time spent in the social trenches with that wild, strange, irresistible and often satisfying beast; the one-night stand. 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, revealing precious bits of casual sex wisdom along the way.

My Horizontal Life is one guilty pleasure you won’t be ashamed to talk about in the morning.
