In this excerpt from In Bed with Susie Bright, Susie interviews author Jillian Lauren. Lauren talks about her incredible real-life adventure “auditioning” for the harem of Prince Jefri, youngest brother of the Sultan of Brunei, and her new book Some Girls: My Life in a Harem.
Some Girls is the jaw-dropping story of a girl from the suburbs who ends up in a prince’s harem and emerges from the secret Xanadu both richer and wiser. More than just a sexy listen set in an exotic land, Some Girls is also the story of how a rebellious teen found herself in the most unlikely of places.
Called “the widest read, most reviled and revered sex expert in America” by The San Jose Mercury News, Susie Bright is one of the best-known sex writers in the United States. Susie has teamed up with Audible to bring you her weekly show, In Bed with Susie Bright, - available only at Audible.com®.

Ms. Bright does not know when to finish her question and let her subject speak. The few words that Jillian Lauren was able to get in were very interesting, but I found Susie Bright's interview style to be absolutely grating. This is the second such Susie Bright program I have listened to and I am turned off so much by her style that I do not plan to listen to any more of her programs. I don't know why Audible.com features her so prominently.
It is official, Susie Bright should not interview people where her jealous or envious attitude is incredibly obvious. We want to hear about the life and experience of this Author and hear how she came to write this book. I am not interested in hearing the interviewer try to couch her obvious loathing for women in the sex trade business. Calling the Author a 'slut', to me is amazing and judgmental, no matter how she tried to slide the comment into the interview. I'm not interested in her or her thoughts about Miss Lauren. Ten min of that crap was awful to listen to and I'm sure uncomfortable for Miss Lauren. I want to read the book because Miss Lauren was so graceful in her responses, and I suspect more worldly.
Susie Bright, there is an oxymoron of a name. Suzie the Insipid Idiot better defines her interviewing skills. Be warned, this is time you'll never get back.
LOVE ROMANCE, HISTORY, AND STRAIGHT SHOOTERS
Susie Bright's interview was totally contrived and controlled and demeaning towards Ms. Lauren. However, Ms. Lauren displayed total class and style and under the duress of this biased interview, she was a true warrior. Susie Brights style is crass and harsh and totally biased to 'her' thoughts and feelings. We wanted to hear the story of Ms. Lauren and not the whining jealousies of the interviewer, Susie Bright. I hope all who read my review please note this review is for SUSIE BRIGHT!! And not for the author Jillian Lauren. A message to Jillian .. please find another interviewer for your books and get it up on Audible. Fast!
Jillian, and the stories she has to tell are really interesting. This interview though, was really spoiled by Susie's Bright's ego I guess. Ms Bright has an undesirably long introduction and then doesn't let the poor interviewee actually respond to the question as Ms Bright seems to want to talk more than she does want to interview. The second half, when Jillian is allowed to get a word in, is really quite interesting.
Absolutely NOTHING could have made this a good audio book. I needed something to entertain me, and it was not this book
Everything about it was disappointing. I was sick and wanted to listen to a new audiobook. Being free was more than I would pay.
No way. She has the morals and values of a harlot. I am just happy it cost me nothing at all.
After my initial shock, I was angry that I had even downloaded that horrible book to my computer.
That we didn't get to hear much. Susie did most of the talking and said it all and left Jillian only to agree. I wanted Susie to be quiet so I could actually have Jillian tell in her words.
Too much talking
Susie, step aside and let your guests talk.
I am married to the wonderful and amazing woman pictured here. I listen to books to make me a better husband, father and person.
Other than the fact that it was an interview with an author, which I felt could be helpful in my pitiful attempt at writing, I really wasn't sure what to expect. After listening, it makes me wonder if the Russian prostitutes, at least we assumed they were prostitutes, that I saw at a swanky hotel in Bahrain were really just harem girls. If so, what is that life like, why would someone choose that life, etc.? I may just buy this book to find that out.
This was not a book, but an interview. The sound quality was terrible and the interviewer completely dominated the conversation. It was obviously done over a very poor-quality telephone connection and it does not seem like any attempt was made to clean up the quality of the recording.
