Product description

From the Back Cover

What happened when an ordinary middle-class mum decided to beat the recession and put food on the table by turning tricks?

Facing financial meltdown, mother of three Scarlett O'Kelly did what the average woman would find unthinkable: she became an escort and this is the explicit, astonishing and compulsive story of her year living a double life.

There was the sex, which, surprisingly for Scarlett, could have unexpected pleasures. Then the clients - ordinary men who worried that they had to hide their sexual needs, desires and fantasies from their wives or girlfriends. Not to mention her realisation that women just like her could build stronger relationships if they could let go their hang-ups in and out of bed. And there's the high price Scarlett paid for her double life - one she is still coming to terms with.

Sex, Lies and Recession is a raw, intimate and powerful story of one brave woman's sacrifice in a time of hardship.

About the Author

Scarlett O'Kelly is an ordinary middle-class mum of three. Though she is no longer doing escort work, the lessons she learned from it, and the insights she gained into other people 's lives, are invaluable and she has no regrets.
