How did you first learn about sex? If you grew up in the 1970s, it may have been from a gleefully lusty tour guide named Xaviera Hollander.In the late 1960s — that era of sexual chaos, when Playboy Clubs and love-ins were competing for national attention — a beautiful, intelligent young Dutch secretary named Xaviera de Vries moved to New York, grew swiftly tired of her desk job . . . and soon became the most visible and glamorous madam the city had ever seen. As Xaviera Hollander, she published a shockingly candid account of her life behind the brothel door. The Happy Hooker shot straight to the top of the bestseller lists, sold more than fifteen million copies, and made this enterprising young woman an international phenomenon. Thirty years later, these delightfully explicit tales of the '60s and '70s swingers' scene — including countless jaw-dropping stories of lesbianism, bondage, fetishism, and more — remain as titillating as ever, charged with the mix of shrewd observation and uninhibited appetite that made Hollander an irresistible storyteller. The Happy Hooker is a classic: the world's greatest book on the world's oldest profession.

My aunt told me about this book and said "don't ever read it" so of course I had to read it.

4.0 Happy Hooker: My Own Story
perhaps a classic case of people confusing book reviews for endorsement of the author's character, Happy Hooker is running a 3.14 on goodreads, something akin to the [b:Shanghai Baby|261479|Shanghai Baby|Weihui Zhou|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348595453s/261479.jpg|2760725] which is about some Chi...

No one frolicked around with German shepherd's in my copy - and I sure as hell don't feel cheated on.The Happy Hooker is a trainwreckalicious biography. It's plainly and poorly written, and it should be. An overly polished memoir would've failed to deliver that feeling of authenticity to Xaviera Hol...

I read this book when I was about 14 or 15. Unbelievable! First time I'd heard of the mile high club and her jacking a dog off at the pool, very freaky. I won't say this about any other book, but I was too young for this book. I hadn't even had sex yet and I'm learning of all this strange stuff.
