Listen to my interview with Al Needham about my book…

10 December 2009, 12:05:13Rebecca
Here’s the audio clip of my first live public appearance talking about my book. If you remember I talked at the Left Lion Extravaganza here in Nottingham on the 3rd October. Here I openly discuss with Al my reasons for writing my book, my job as an escort, the misconceptions about my job and lastly questions were opened up to the audience. Out of all the interesting questions I got asked and further ones I could have been asked, one lady asked if I paid tax! Lol. Answer was yes btw 🙂 She was an accountant haha 🙂 PS – note the Bach’s Rescue Remedy Spray in the yellow bottle! Lol. yes I was very nervous.

BBC Radio Solent live interview MONDAY 26th Oct…

28 October 2009, 09:57:15

I’ll be on live from 2.30 pm and the interview will not be a discussion but rather a conversation with me about my life, my experiences, and my decision to write a book. The interview will last approximately 20 mins. It’s available on playback for those who missed it but I’m not sure how long for.

I hope you all enjoy 🙂 Please write any feedback on the interview here on my blog.

I really enjoyed my interview with Charlie. She was lovely and made me feel very welcome. I always find it awkward on radio interviews because they seem to cut you off suddenly which is frustrating when you are thinking of a couple of things you want to get into conversation. I was cut off before I had the chance to say 2 things firstly – that as much as I get on with guys (I have always had close male friends from a young age) I am also equally a girls girl and I think some ladies see me as some sort of femme fatale and husband stealer. The truth is I am very concious of other peoples feelings and certainly none of my friends have a problem with me being around their men. I am an extremely loyal person. I think it’s a common misconception that even in our personal lives escorts will target and flirt with any man regardless of who they are with. I would never date a married man or a man with a girlfriend.

And secondly (thankfully Charlie added this in after I had gone) escorting is not something I’d recommend young girls to get into. Maybe this confused people and maybe some thought it was hypocritical but here’s my reasoning – I consider myself very lucky to have spent 9 years in this profession and come out unscathed. It’s an extremely dangerous job to be in, not for the reasons you might necessarily think ie the risk of physical violence (that’s certainly never happened to me nor have I been anywhere close) but rather the risk of losing ones self respect and ending up on a slippery slope of alcoholism and/or drugs.

Nottingham’s Mr Sex!

30 September 2009, 18:09:01

Last week I met a great guy Al Needham, Nottingham’s very own Mr Sex as he likes to be called :-/ I know it sounds a sleazy/cheesy name but he’s great fun and a very genuine and nice guy. The main editor of Left Lion (an edgy, controversial, popular, local magazine) James emailed me after I sent him a copy of my book suggesting I might like to take part in a free festival in Nottingham on the 3rd October. There they planned to have some readers and he suggested I joined forces with Nottinghams Mr Sex. I was apprehensive but it sounded interesting. Al has won an award for the best sex blog, his worthy prize being a big golden ‘todger’ for the mantle-piece :))) Check out his blog peeps it’s very funny and insightful…

As well as lots of live music and entertainment there will be a number of readings taking place and I will be talking with him on stage about my book on Saturday at the free festival in Nottingham at Canning Circus.

For those of you that missed the programme you can now watch it here …

http://www.thegirlfriendexperience.tv/tv-appearances

Thank you all for your feedback – there seems to be a common theme :))) some of the texts I’ve had are…

‘Just finished watching The Other Side thought you did really well. Carole Malone came across as a right b***h! Well done you!’

‘Just watched The Other Side, u came across really well. That Carole was a right b***h! And the monk was just odd! Well done honey!’

‘I have just seen The Other Side on video and you came across really well. Well done love! Can’t stand the mouthy blonde one! Good luck with everything’

‘Just watching now argh! That lady is annoying me, the presenter Tracey is a bit biased and that old frump on the couch! But you are coming across educated and calm. They are all very black and white apart from the priest on the right…’

‘Well done you looked ladylike and dignified and made your points clearly…’
I’ve had emails also from people I don’t know all very supportive and pretty much saying the same thing.

Thank you to everyone for your kind words XXXX

The Other Side ITV show

18 September 2009, 13:34:40

Yesterday I went to Birmingham for the second part of my filming. It went very well I think. Although as it was a debate, I think I was far too polite, waiting for people to finish before speaking, so I didn’t say as much as I’d have liked! Lol :))) John Stapleton hosted the debate and present were 2 open minded priests 🙂 Carole Malone journo for NOTW (grrrr), Linda Popadopolis psychologist regularly featured on This Morning, and Diane Abbott labour MP, fighting for the legalisation of prostitution.

The debate was about lust and prostitution and integrated in the debate will be my short film with Tracey Cox and a short film with a street prostitute.  I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and I thought everyone was really friendly and made me feel very welcome. I just need a bit more debating practice then I’ll be away and I’m sure I’ll be a force to be reckoned with! :)))

In the debate we discuss the dangers of women through prostitution, whether it right or wrong to lust after someone when you are in a relationship or married and infidelity. Watch out for the programme it’s on late – the early hours of Monday morning :-/

New Amazon review…..

New Amazon review — thanks sooo much XXX

By RRS Bransfield (North of England) –

This is a recommended read for anyone seeking genuine insight into a world underpinned by privacy and discretion.

The book explores a manifestation of `the oldest profession’ in which sex appears to play a less prominent role, but genuine emotional connection is key, even if only temporary.

One of the most compelling aspects is the compilation of contributions from family and close friends, documenting their views on the author’s fulfilment of her chosen profession – a brave and unglamourised addition.

The other, is the inclusion of numerous, extended diary accounts of actual dates, which are fresh and fun to read.

The author comes across as a genuinely caring and grounded individual, a passionate advocate for her vocation, who is both capable and willing to work hard, to achieve the success which she deserves and seems to have achieved.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to review my book so far. Please keep them coming 🙂

Here is my most recent thank you so much Claude –

5.0 out of 5 stars At last something genuine., 27 Aug 2009
By C. Pechabadens “Claude Pechabaden” (Angleterre) – See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)

This book was a great read, looked very long but somehow easy to get to the end; I was very amazed to see the author was able to share all this with potential readers, and was very touched by it all. It also taught me many things about human behaviour that I had no idea about, and I am very grateful!

She was successful at escorting, and good for her, some people deserve to be so. I didn’t find it “Glamorised” but on the opposite, very down to earth. Unlike ‘Belle de jour’ which a friend bought me and I thought was absolute crap, (I couldn’t read it all) Bea’s book touched my mind as a person, and I would recommend it strongly to anyone interested in the sex industry and in another beautiful and aware human being
