Ok, this book took me forever (almost a month!!!) to read. The topic itself is catchy but the book seemed to be a very slow read for me... It's definitely not a page-turner and i definitely COULD put it down for days at a time...
The narrator is funny and optimistic, but i can't exactly relate to or even make myself understand and like someone who has sex for money. Also, there are all these guys - her exes, as well as her current beau, who DO NOT mind her whoring around... Weird! I thought this was supposed to be a true story?!

Also, the more i read, the more weird sexual stuff i saw from this woman and NOT in her "professional life" (that would be understandable) but her personal life... She is making it seem like "golden showers" and men wearing her "dresses and silk/lacy knickers" while whipping her breasts are a common/everyday thing... Since every single one of her real-life non-paying boyfriends or non -payig one-night stands has some sort of weird fetish, are we to believe that London is full of perverts and sexual deviants?!

Finally, I did not get what the big drama was with the BOY - what was the crying and the appologizing for > why did they break up in the first place if they love each other so much?! Not clear ...
