Lisa Sussman, Author Hearst Books $17.95 (256p) ISBN 978-1-58816-525-1
This easy-to-read guide to making time for love-making from prolific self-help author Sussman (Brazilian Waxes, Lazy Ovaries and Outrageous Orgasms) presents easy sex tips for the over-scheduled woman, emphasizing both quantity and quality. The first chapter, ""Live Sexy,"" offers ways to increase libido in one's day-to-day routine, such as popping a multivitamin or wearing the lingerie ""you've been saving for special occasions"" under your day-clothes. Along with more general strategies (in chapters like ""Sweet Talk,"" ""Get Off the Couch"" and ""Shake it Up""), Sussman offers solutions to specific problems in ""Trouble-Busting in Paradise,"" including fixes for painful sex, too few orgasms and feeling fat. Quick tips are also sprinkled throughout, usefully categorized by time: 60-second ""Passion Pauses"" (""leave some chocolates on your pillow like at a fancy hotel""), 15-minute ""Love Doses"" (""turn a hug into a sensual neck and back massage"") and hour-long ""Slow Burns"" (""meet at a bar and pretend you're picking up someone you've never met before""). A casual attitude, concise suggestions (evoking the articles of its magazine pedigree) and playful illustrations make this book ideal for browsing, reading on the go and gift-giving.
