Not Tonight, Darling, I have a Headache! 365 Ways to Weasel Your Way Out of Sex

Bookstore shelves are lined with books about enhancing your sex life, but until now there's been one taboo, yet pressing topic left out… how to avoid it all together and just get a good night's sleep!

Minneapolis-based Laughing Venus recently launched its first book, "Not Tonight, Darling, I have a Headache! 365 Ways to Weasel Your Way Out of Sex", a light-heartened, tongue-in-cheek, girlfriend's guide for those nights when you're exhausted, drained or just plain old not in the mood.

Authors, wives and longtime friends, Addie Michel and Marie Chablis said the idea for the book was inspired by conversations with girlfriends over a glass of wine and a great meal.

"The more we talked, the more we discovered every woman has been there," said Chablis, "No matter how much we love and are attracted to our men, there are those nights, when absolutely nothing sounds better than some good, uninterrupted shut eye." Chablis and Michel point to several energy-zapping scenarios such as those late nights out with friends, the long days at the office or the chaotic afternoons wrangling the kids.

"Face it, when it comes to sex, men and women are wired differently. Men are like microwaves, ready and willing on a second's notice," said Michel. "Women are more like slow cookers that need a little more prep time."

"We wanted to give women an arsenal they could keep locked and loaded by their bedside for those nights where every minute of sleep counts," said Chablis. "Whatever your testosterone insomniac throws your way, we have you covered."

"Not Tonight, Darling, I have a Headache! 365 Ways to Weasel Your Way Out of Sex" is a hilarious read chock-full of new, creative and down-right outrageous ideas that will guarantee any woman instant slumber and definitely a few good laughs. From the Vintage Excuses to the Stalling Techniques and Turn-off Tactics, the book gets funnier by the page, making it the perfect conversation piece for a girl's night out.

"Many women who buy our book, end up getting several copies to give their girlfriends," said Michel. Whether it's a bachelorette party, baby shower, birthday gift, or just because, the book makes a fun, unique and affordable gift for nearly any occasion.

Featured on TV and radio stations across the country and even overseas, "Not Tonight, Darling, I have a Headache! 365 Ways to Weasel Your Way Out of Sex" appears to be an instant hit. Michel and Chablis, both married for over 13 years, are fast becoming what some may consider real-life "sexperts" with their honest, down-to-earth and humorous take on this formerly taboo topic.

Michel and Chablis launched Laughing Venus in 2008 as a lifestyle brand emphasizing the importance of humor and fun in female relationships. In addition to the book, Laughing Venus also carries soothing bath bombs, irresistible massage oil (for those other nights), empowering graphic tees and undies to compliment the book.
