The biography of Xaviera Hollander, a madam in New York in the 60's. It was eh. For a book about a hooker, the sex was very benign. Almost professional...and on second thought, I guess that makes sense. Sex for Xaviera was often not about passion, but about business.

I am going to try to start a ray with this soon.
I list my bookrings at The Bookring Directory!

This one arrived yesterday and I have started reading it already. I have read at least one other book similar to this. The one I read was supposed to be based on a true story, but I have my doubts. It also came out in the early 1970's. It's interesting, but like innae said the sex is relatively benign so far.

Thanks for sharing innae!

I finished this one last night. It's hard to put into words what I think about this book! It's really different! It's supposed to be provocative and it is, up to a point. I guess it's hard for me to look at sex as a way to make money. Most of the book was about her business and other things besides sex. I bet a lot of people buying this book looking for erotica were suprised to find there wasn't much of it. I read a similar one: Some Like It Dark by: Kipp Washington which was written using an alias.

More info on Xaviera Holland.

I have the address for okyrhoe, so I will send this soon.

Arrived in Athens today. Thanks innae for including me in the bookray, and JennyC1230 for posting it to me!

I've received a whole bunch of ring/ray books these past 2 weeks, so I might take a while to add my review comments.
I've been looking forward to reading this, though, as I am interested in how Hollander's views compare with our perceptions of sexuality today.
