Customer Review

on 4 September 2006
Whilst understanding that surviving such an abusive and loveless childhood has left a traumatic legacy for the author, I still hoped that for the sake of realism there would be an admission that no parent is perfect all the time. However, in justifying her obsessive pursuit of the childhood she felt robbed of, she seems unable to admit even to herself that her parenting may be flawed.

The whole escapade is based on the premise that because her own childhood was unhappy, then any deviation from the fantasy life she insists on creating for her children would cause them untold grief. I feel this premise is deeply flawed.

However, she is entitled to her belief, and once that is said, her single mindedness to achieve her goal is amazing.

The decision to sell sex seems courageous on several fronts. The double standards of a male-dominated society always threatening to expose her presumed low moral standards, the fear of personal attack, the sheer boredom; it can't have been an easy decision.

Beautiful women can make a living selling their looks as models; intelligent women can make a living selling their mental ability as teachers, lawyers, doctors; every one of us sells some part of ourselves in order to live, why is selling sex tabboo?

The author makes her case for the right to choose a lifestyle, a priority, a job. They aren't my choices but I respect and applaud her determination to claim her right.
