Editorial Reviews

Review

"Read it because she sounds like an interesting person; because it will make you cry for her and admire her; and because she describes a slice of female experience that is all too common and all too little discussed." The F-Word

"Disturbing, powerful, and very real." Bestselling author, Stephen Leather


"I urge anyone to read this woman's story even if you feel well-informed in this area. Q's words and the feeling behind her words are moving, violent, graphic and painful. They come from a place of lived-experience and honesty. Too often are voices such as hers ignored and marginalised." The OtherSide of the Apple
 
"The popularity of Secret Diary of a Call Girl was a very good example of the current societal tendency to push us towards accepting prostitution as a job which is taken through choice and which isn't a high-risk, abusive and traumatic way to earn a living. I was pleased to find Ruth Jacobs' publication shows an experience that details the starker psychological complexities of working in the sex trade and that we hear the interview verbatim from the woman concerned, In Her Own Words." Writer, Kate Kerrow
 
"In Her Own Words is an extremely frank account of the complex psychology involved in selling sex." Nicole Rowe, Feminist Me Up

From the Author

The video interview has been transcribed completely unedited. I have considered editing, but as the woman I interviewed (referred to as Q) is no longer alive, I feel it would be wrong to make any changes without her consent. The words in this book are Q's, and to respect her, her memory, and the fearlessness and courage she showed in disclosing her innermost self, I have left her words untouched.

This charity publication and the cause is very close to my heart, even more so because the woman I interviewed was a dear friend, a wonderful person, and who had a traumatic life, suffering childhood sexual abuse and then being pimped on the streets from the age of fifteen. After escaping from her pimp, she became a top call girl in London.

From making this publication available, I hope to change the stigma some of society has against women in prostitution, which is mainly through lack of knowledge. 75% of women in prostitution have been sexually and physically abused as children, 70% have experienced multiple rapes, and 67% meet the criteria for posttraumatic stress disorder.
