This is an autobiographical book about a sex-worker named Angelien and her short but interesting career at a Australian brothel. She's a single mother of two that, due to bad financial circumstances, takes a job at Rebecca's - a gentlemen's establishment. The book dives in the naughtiness, literally, when she applies for the job in the first chapter. There, she is given a tour of the place, and leaves to get her first medical examination. The erotic meat of the book deals with her clients - submissive men, sexual deviates, virgins, and some 'buggers' that will totally shock you.
This is the first book of the series, with Confidante: The Escort also available. Admittedly, this is my first experiece with erotic fiction and, while some of the incidents made me gasp, I found it an enjoyable, risque read that you'll want to keep on going.
Five stars and a pleasant feeling in my pants. :-)
I also didn't like that it was not told as an actual memoir. I like when people tell their own stories. We get their voice and their point of view. Someone else telling the stories has a certain distance that I don't like as much. Not to mention that it was just odd to think about the fact that the author was talking an awful lot about her mother-in-law's vagina.
The information was there, in fact the book was very detail oriented but the details lingered heavily on sex, not upon what sex trade does to people. The author described what the characters did, but did not provide enough content for you to identify with them on a human level; to either love them or hate them.
The author's reliance on sexual detail,to the detriment of human emotion, lends a pornographic aura to the overall effect.
The character development was also limited.
For those who like journalistic, factual style writing that is distanced from the emotional content-this would be a five star real.
This lifestyle apparently began at an early age and not Angelien's doing. Circumstances in her life and choices along the way carved this path of life for her.
When you open one door it opens many other doors. Angelien got to experience many different sexual parties.
While the young girls experienced problems with jealousy, Angelien did not. Maybe her age had something to do with it. Instead, it was the men who became too attached to her. Angelien had a steady following of regulars.
It seems once in the industry you never leave. Once comfortable and acquainted with this environment you continue to get offers for various other types of jobs entertaining men. This lifestyle was easy for her since she was popular and requested by the same men.
Typical of a man to turn his nose at a women for working at a brothel when it should be the men being judged for needing to go to a brothel to begin with. Angelien slept with 170 men in one month and that was only her. One woman was servicing the needs of all these men. Very rarely did she get pleasure out of the encounter. Men and women are so quick to judge, but men want sex and apparently will do anything to acquire it. Does not seem to matter if the men are gay, married, engaged, dating, or professionals. Men from all walks of life want and need sex.
I was disappointed the story did not discuss how Angelien had two sons and with whom. No previous history was disclosed other than her first few encounters with boys she dated at fifteen.

This is a true story of an older ladies, passed life as a sex worker when she was younger as told to her daughter in law.
Its very detailed, and gives you an insight into what happens in brothels.
I think it was tastefully written, and have downloaded the next 2 to see what happens next.
