glad I picked it up. Not only is it frequently hilarious, but it is
endlessly fascinating from the hair and beauty insights (some of which were
revelatory - ever heard of 'look good lighting'?) to the mechanics of how
men are systematically and ruthlessly parted from their money once they're
inside a club.
Samantha Bailey is a brilliant tour guide through a side of life most of us
never experience. Within a few pages I learnt to put my prejudices to one
side and to see the clubs and the punters as Samantha saw them. I found
myself reading with an open mouth - a good look on the Northern Line! - as one
revelation followed another. The money spent - and earnt - in these clubs
This isn't a misery memoir from a fallen woman, or the ramblings of a happy
hooker... it's just a really honest insight into a hidden world that reveals
a lot about what men and women really think of each other.
I guess the book is aimed at women, but I reckon a lot of men will read this
in secret on their Kindle!
But we learn a lot about the strip club business, principally the startling amount of money that men - many of whom are married - will pay for a short period of female company and a glimpse of flesh. The girls can make thousands of pounds on a good night, though the author admits to squandering it on clothes and make-up, and many of her colleagues develop drug habits.
The occasional glances behind the scenes, particularly the role of the "house mother" are fascinating, and the hints of the darker side of the business are disturbing.
Although the book is categorised as autobiography we learn little about Ms Bailey's life outside work. A good read nonetheless.
I ordered the book for my holidays and could not put it down! I managed to make it last over 2 days.
It is an excellent book that grips you from the first page. It gives brilliant incite into the world of stripping from all different points of view and also Sam shares her hilarious adventures which made me actually laugh out loud at the pool!!!
It is a very well written book and hope she does a sequel with even more exciting tales!! It's a must have!!
A MUST READ BOOK!!!
