Product Description

Synopsis

Diablo Cody was 24 years old with a steady desk job and a gorgeous, supportive boyfriend. But she was sure there had to be more to life. On a whim, she signed up for amateur night at Minneapolis' seedy Skyway Lounge. She didn't win a prize that night, but Cody discovered a rush she had never felt before and an experience she couldn't forget. Starting twice a week in quiet gentlemen's clubs, Cody soon immersed herself in the life of the strip joint and graduated full time to multilevel sex palaces and peep shows. "Candy Girl" is her captivating fish-out-of-water story, providing a behind-the-scenes look at this little-known world as she learns to walk in heels, dance the pole, grind dick and keep her wits - and wit - about her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lewd, Rude and Wonderfully Honest! 13 Jan 2007
By Sarah Durston TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This isn't a book for the easily offended! The story starts simply enough, Diablo Cody (what a fantastic name!!) wants a bit of adventure in her life. She strips at an amateur night at a local strip club and loves the experience so much that she continues to strip for a further year.

Diablo strips in a variety of clubs and inroduces the reader to a wonderful cast of characters along the way. In some of the later chapters she describes some of the men she meets at a place called Sex World. It was an eye opener! although I have to confess that one man's particular fetish made me feel pretty unwell!

The tone of the book is great. She has a wonderful sense of humour and I hope that she'll continue writing.

Incidentally...if you like this book you could also try 'Strip City' by Lily Burana.

Enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mildly interesting but lack of substances 28 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback
The script of film Juno is written by the same author Diablo Cody. I like the movie so much that I decided to find out more about the writer and bought this book.

It is a disappointment. To summarise her story- she is an average secretary leading a repetitive and unexciting life. Then she met her boyfriend through internet. Her boyfriend is surprisingly tolerating. She decided to adventure on a local stripping show. Then more stripping on another classier stripping venue. Her insights and thoughts and interesting episode of meeting workers in the stripping venues.

She reveals some of the hardship of stripper, and clear some of general misunderstanding. Yet, in all, unless you buy into the formula of 'sex sells', it lacks substances to surprise and to delight, let alone inspire us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Candy Girl 3 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It could so easily have been a quick way of making a buck, but it shows the author has the skills necessary to present the subject matter in a well written and offbeat way.

Easy to read and witty book about a girl who chooses to be a stripper.
Diablo Cody is extremely honest and humourous making this book one which you can't put down.
