A real look inside what its like to be a Madam in the modern world.
Penny
The very powerful and at times, shocking stories in this book, will make any reasonable person think and ponder for a moment.
J.J.Collins
And yet one more star because I bought this book for a friend of mine to read - this is my highest compliment to a writer.

Do you have misconceptions about the British sex industry? Have you ever been guilty of pre-judging, ignoring or dismissing any lady, you knew, to be involved in the game? Well too bad, because this book will literally blow your socks off.

Throw away the chains and whips for an evening, and perch yourself into a cosy chair or bed for that matter accompanied by Becky Adams, and her wonderful book - "Madam - Prostitutes, Punters and Puppets," which takes the reader into the very real journey of the British sex industry.

This book is an eye opening, page turning marvel, detailing one lady's time trying to run a brothel in supposed sexually conservative Britain. Do not be mistaken, the book is not full of sordid tell-tale stories. It is very much about one woman's amazing journey, to defy the odds time and time again, all the while, trying to afford a decent level of protection and discretion to those involved in the industry.

"Madam - Prostitutes, Punters and Puppets" is bursting with hilarious stories, dysfunctional, and the not so dysfunctional characters, and outright brilliant escapades at times. It literally choked me up with laughter in many parts, as Becky Adams shares stories about her first personal foray into the back of a Chinese oriental restaurant, through to a riotous trip to Royal Ascot, and the various dramatic forced relocations, while attempting to keep ahead of the law and authorities. There is a chuckle or a great laugh in this book for everyone however; if there ever was a book written to educate and inform people on why we should legalise the sex industry, this book is it.

What a brilliant book, not what I was expecting to be honest. A colleague bought it and gave me it to me as a joke and I really didn't expect it to be my cup of tea.
Have to say I couldn't put it down. Really funny and moving story and also lifts the veil on a part of our society most of us don't know anything about.
It is well written and fast paced with a steady flow of stories and revelations that keep you wanting to read on and see what happens next.
I had no idea this sort of thing went on in Milton Keynes, but having read the MK News this week there is an article on Madam Becky which highlights some news reports of years gone by involving Miss Adams and her adventures. And here I was thinking Milton Keynes was a quiet, sleepy place!
If you are a fan of tea, ginger nuts, puppets, topless sheriffs, Rolf Harris, or all of the above then buy this book!

I've always been interested in the sex industry and how things work, but it's very rare being able to hear it all from the horses' mouth so to speak.
When prostitution or brothels are mentioned in todays society, most people generally assume the girls involved are drug induced and living in poverty or fear, although this isn't always the case as outlined in Becky Adams new biography 'Madam'.

The book begins by giving a little backround info about Becky's childhood and the difficult relationship she shared with her mother before moving on to becoming owner of a topless carwash, brothel Madam and sex toy seller. She really has seen and done it all!

Who'd have thought that by simply keeping an eye on a good friend and making sure they were safe, could lead to a life of brothels, puppets, dildos and dongs?? Sounds bizzarre, but that's exactly how it all happened for Becky Adams.

Starting out by dropping her good friend off for jobs to ensure her safety, things quickly progressed for Becky until she was actaully arranging jobs herself, and before long, needed to find more girls and somewhere to work from! Madam Beckys Massage Parlour was to be the answer to it all.
Although faced with problems every step of the way, Becky proceeded to defy all the odds and become one of the most successful and well respected Madams on the circuit, even appearing on the Trisha show and This Morning as well as 'Person Services', a docu-soap which ran on ITV in 2003.

'Madam' seriously opened my eyes, and I thought I knew it all! Who'd have thought that hand puppets could bring so much satisfaction to a person ...especially a puppet like Spanky the monkey (you'll have to read the book to find out more).

Very interesting look at the inside workings of a brothel. I'm surprised that she could stick with it for so long.

I couldn't stop reading this book once I started. Its written with honesty and humour and great insight. A real look inside what its like to be a Madam in the modern world. I hope Madam Becky is going to write another.
