BLURB

A prostitute is a decent worker like the rest of us, only she can’t fake what she is doing.” -M.F. Moonzajer
No I am not a prostitute, I am a call- girl and for your information it’s a job, just like any other one (and yes mine is just as voluntary as yours). The thing is, older men have always been especially fond of me. Most of them notice immediately that I’m naturally quite charming. I’ve had countless adventures with people in different environments, and from different background although, yes, these encounters mostly end with us fucking. I operate with a thin sheen of superficiality that has become second nature to me, maybe even first now. Great courtesans throughout history were often knowledgeable about a variety of subjects and spoke multiple languages and such. They were able to seduce because they had great minds to go along with their looks. I may not have the best of either but I’ll sure make you think I do, I only really need to keep up the act for an hour or so anyway. [Steve Axel]
