This book delves into a side of prostitution most people don't ever get to see, let alone understand. Interestingly, this seems to be the result, whether this is the goal or not. I really like when the author talks about philosophy, which she often does in a roundabout way. Because Belle sees the world a certain way, and this perspective varies so greatly from my own, it really made me call into question my prejudices toward prostitution, prejudices that I didn't even realise I had unconsciously formed based on society's norms.
Belle writes with wit, clarity and in an honest way that is in turn shocking (which you would expect from a book of its title), and other times surprising and thoughtful. An interesting read, though I found it difficult to keep the details about her personal life straight, due to nomenclature (which I understand is in the interest of protecting identities, but I found that names like A1, A2, A3 and A4 were difficult for me to differentiate without different names).
All said, a worthwhile read.
