Well… the scat scene was gross but told in a funny way.
She performed the characters very well.
I wasn't sure what to expect, but I came away amused,if not shocked at what some people like to do for "fun".
Overall, the story was detailed and entertaining. It would've been nice to hear more of her life outside of work, but that's just my opinion. I'd read this again. Don't listen while eating.
It read like a true story from someone who had really done it all, and not become sucked into the crappy side of that world.
I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
This is one of the best sex work memoirs I've read. I couldn't stop listening.
From a working-class childhood, Shawna made her way into college supporting herself with odd jobs. She answered an ad for a dominatrix, and ended up with a lot to learn in a short period of time. She tells you all about being in power at such a young age, and bending the rules to fit her needs and capabilities.
Shawna's voice is distinct: humorous and true. She tells her story like she's sitting right next to you.
