Review

The Las Vegas Madam is a captivating exploration of an elusive industry Rodman understands moral complexity; she neither glorifies nor vilifies her past trade in the Las Vegas sex industry. Sparing no detail, memoirist Jami Rodman, aka Haley Heston, opens the doors on the epicenter of the Sin City sex industry in her book, The Las Vegas Madam. She shares explicit tales that have the flavor of great erotica, but also weaves in remarkable, telling portraits of people on both sides of an age-old transaction. Rodman grew up in a conservative family in small-town Oregon. The first chapters of her book examine the alienation she experienced as a teenager. After a failed marriage and some secondary education, she broadened her horizons to Las Vegas. The city s sex, drugs, and money lured Rodman in. She began waiting tables, working at strip clubs, and soon enough was propositioned by her first client. The rest of the book chronicles the author s rise to becoming an elite escort, and eventually madam of her own escort company, before getting out of the industry altogether. Rodman s writing shows excellent skill. Rather bookish as a child, she studied cultural anthropology in college before moving to Vegas, and her natural talent and education show in the way she perceives and analyzes the characters and customs of the sex industry, particularly how wealth and privilege fuel dissatisfaction. It was ironic, Rodman writes of a dominatrix session she and a friend a feminist with a bachelor s degree hosted for a powerful businessman. This was a man who was feared in his professional life, yet he was paying two anonymous girls to verbally and physically insult him. Rodman also understands moral complexity. For the most part, she neither glorifies nor vilifies her past trade. She explores the freedom and empowerment that high-end escorts enjoy. At the same time, she doesn t shy away from the darker side of the sex industry: The largest group of women in the sex industry 60 percent is trafficked. Her most moving passages involve her attempts to save working girls from pimps and drug addiction: Underneath it all, they were my friends more than anything else. The book s episodic nature occasionally undermines its own narrative arc. For instance, after reflective chapters on her personal relationships and finding meaning in a double life, Rodman includes a few more salacious episodes about sugar daddies and open relationships, the latter particularly redundant in light of her earlier chapter on threesomes. On the whole, however, The Las Vegas Madam is a captivating exploration of an elusive industry. It s not a book for readers squeamish about sex or about women who choose to sell it for a living. Fans of erotica will appreciate Rodman s evocative descriptions of sex, while fans of memoir and general nonfiction will appreciate her keen sociological insights. --forewordreviews.com/reviews/the-las-vegas-madam/

**5 Sexy & Seedy, Stars** First, let me start by saying, I hate nonfiction. Most of the time, I find it boring and cannot keep my attention for more than a few seconds before I start rolling my eyes and ultimately putting it down. I can't say that about this book. While yes, it took me a little longer to read because I just didn't have the time or concentration to sit and get it done...I was completely enthralled by this book. I was sucked in from the beginning, and yes, it has some slow parts, but overall I was beyond fascinated by Jami's (aka Haley's) story. With a very conservative upbringing and her choices to delve into the seediest parts of the underworld, I wanted nothing more than to read more of what she was telling. This memoir is everything I hoped it would be. It's more than just a recant of Jami's/Haley's life as a prostitute and madam, but about the dealings of escorts in Sin City. A Vegas nightlife that looks glamorous; but in all actuality is just as rough as any other high-profile lifestyle. There are trade offs to expensive clothes, trips around the world, and VIP service. There are expectations that go above and beyond companionship...and in this book, we get a front-row seat to all of it. It's fascinating, and completely riveting. The recounts of early years, how and why she made the decisions she made, the ultimate sacrifices and thoughts regarding her successes and failures...this raw and unconventional recollection of Haley Heston and her life is one I will recommend to anyone interested in a fresh approach to nonfiction. This is more than just a boring tale about how a small-town woman's life evolved...this is deeper than just one person's experience. This is a lifestyle, a world that interacts with everyday people, yet lives and breathes in an underground dimension all its own. Welcome to the other side of Vegas, prostitution, and paying for the time of a beautiful woman. --whirlwindbooksandreviews.com/2016/01/blogger-review-las-vegas-madam.html --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Jami Rodman was a Madam by night and a writer by day with an unabashed approach to sexuality and relationships. She has a background in cultural anthropology and sociology, but her stories really come alive when she recounts her last decade of adventures, first as an elite escort and then as the high-powered Las Vegas Madam. Rodman offers a unique, essentially sociological, perspective that does not often find its way into the spotlight. She has emerged, after a decade of cultural immersion, to share her experience, education, and insight on a trending social movement. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
