Belle De Jour is the pseudonym of a high-class call girl working in London. This is her memoir.

For nearly two years, Belle charted her day-to-day adventures in and out of the bedroom in a frank, funny and award-winning blog. Now in this riveting international bestseller and Showtime original series starring Billie Piper, Belle reveals (among other things) how she, a university-educated woman, became a working girl, what it feels like to have sex for money, and where to buy the best knickers for the job. From chatting about literature with naked clients, to smuggling whips into luxury hotels, Belle offers a no-holds-barred account of the high-class sex trade that will open doors to places you’ve never seen before.
