This is Diablo's captivating fish-out-of-water story of her yearlong walk on the wild side, from quiet gentlemen's clubs to multilevel sex palaces and glassed-in peep shows. In witty prose she gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at this industry through a writer's keen eye, chronicling her descent into the skin trade and the effect it had on her self-image and her relationship with her now husband.

Prefer a 3.5 if I could
I didn't know what to expect when choosing this book and frankly only considered this title since it was offered at a very low cost. And I must admit... my curiosity took over.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised.
Ms. Cody illustrates a slice of this foreign world with sharp-witted humor. She conveyed tolerance and at times compassion for her fellow sex workers. And with clever wit she expressed a wide range of thoughts and feelings towards the men who paid for her services. To say that this author has an open mind is an understatement . I think I identified with Ms. Cody in the sense that her insatiable curiosity drew her to this profession. I found it refreshing as she described her love and admiration for her partner, specifically I liked how she admires him for the kind of dedicated father he is to his little daughter. I finished this book really liking Ms. Cody. Overall I am glad I chose this for a quick and non-complicated listen. It is a fun book and yes I agree, not for everyone.
