This book is bad bad bad. A chapter in I realized it wasn't a non-fiction book and prepared myself for some entertaining thoughts and insights about a fictional call-girl's escapades. Instead, even the fantasies were cookie-cut from the cheesiest, most stereotypical porn dvds. Let alone the discrepancies in facts, it was just plain boring. Honestly, I really doubt this book was written by a woman. Yuck-straight to the recycling bin-I'm embarassed to have it on my shelf.

Samantha Waters is a disgrace to the true courtesan. She frames the novel in a way that she grew up in privileged family, and eventually groomed and educated herself to cater to wealthy men's sexual needs. The memoirs were common, and typical. Her italicized text, which revealed her inner voice became both cumbersome, and annoying throughout the entire book. Moreover, she refers to her clients' fantasies as weird and abnormal; certainly not a good attitude. Samantha is blatantly disingenuous and down right rude to her clients. The only saving grace it appears she had throughout her tenure as a sex worker is that she was allegedly attractive. In a vain attempt to appear classy, she puts on a Chanel suit. She speaks condescendingly of other sex workers, stating she can spot a cheap call girl miles away. What is she even doing in their proximity? In her advice chapter, she even states, "never date a trick". All cheap call girl vernacular. An expensive suit does not buy class. Sadly, Ms. Waters never rose to the super stardom of a world class courtesan she self proclaims to have accomplished. In fact, she even ridicules true world class courtesans that venture outside their own zip code. She proclaims to like adventure, yet never rises out of the Silicon Valley or comfortable hotels of San Francisco. Despite her alleged penchant for adventure, it is obvious this woman is afraid of her own inner fears. I advise readers to select the classic, practical, truly adventurous tales from Xaviera Hollander's "The Happy Hooker," and Veronica Monet's "Sex Secrets of Escorts". These women are far more spiritually grounded in their work, educated, and tell more interesting memoirs.

If this is a true story and not fiction, this modern day courtesan's memoir is full of surprises and myth debunking information? The author seems almost too good to be true. She comes from a very well-to-do family in California, she has three college degrees (majoring in criminology) one of which is a law degree or it's a soon-to-be fourth degree since it's only mentioned at the end of the book when she is describing her life after she retired from eight years of being a Dot.com escort. She had decent mainstream careers as a fraud investigator for an insurance agency and as a hotel public relations person. She claims she went into the escort business in Silicon Valley for the adventure and fun of meeting very powerful men who were in the process of changing the world. She's a Republican who voted for Arnold Schwarzenegger for Governor and George Bush for President. She hates the smell of tobacco, doesn't touch drugs, is a health nut and only drinks very, very occasionally. She's a private person; she loves her pets--"a parrot and a kitty"--and now volunteers at animal shelter once a week. She saved and invested almost all of the money she made from escorting and was therefore able to retire in her twenties to continue to live a life of semi-luxury, but based on her own earnings, not her parents wealth. The first two things she bought with her earnings were what every California girl wants--implants. But it took her three attempts to get the right size for her body. The first ones were too small, the second set too large and finally she ended up with 425cc's. She then bought herself "a beautiful gold Chanel watch' and those were they only two extravagant purchases from her working years. Her next big purchase was a house, which was probably her most successful investment with her earnings.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
It is important for every man to be satisfied sexually; at the same time there are some who yearn for excitement and adventure. For some men, sexual satisfaction are often lacking within the confines of traditional marriage or within the boundaries placed upon themselves. In this environment, the lucrative profession of prostitution has thrived. This book paints a sophisticated picture of the business of sexual care-giving. It is written from the point of view of an intelligent and well-educated wowman, who draws upon here varied experiences and insights to dispel the myths surrounding the ancient world of prostitution, which has now entered the modern, "dot-com" age. The book is both educational and entertaining. I highly recommend it.
