Mattress Actress is the story of Annika Cleeve’s 18 years as a sex worker. Her troubled childhood led to working in a brothel by the age of 15. From there Annika worked her way up to the high-end parlours, agencies, and private work in various parts of Australia and internationally. In this book Annika reveals the truth of a sex worker’s life: the clients, the girls, the parlour bosses, the rip-off merchants, the drug deaths, the white slavery, the discrimination, the corrupt police and politicians, the exotic travel, and the money.
