Publisher's Summary

Mattress Actress is the story of Annika Cleeve’s 18 years as a sex worker. Her troubled childhood led to working in a brothel by the age of 15. From there Annika worked her way up to the high-end parlours, agencies, and private work in various parts of Australia and internationally. In this book Annika reveals the truth of a sex worker’s life: the clients, the girls, the parlour bosses, the rip-off merchants, the drug deaths, the white slavery, the discrimination, the corrupt police and politicians, the exotic travel, and the money, finally finding an exit strategy that didn't require a man on a white steed, but rather a university education.
Mattress Actress is a revealing and gutsy look at someone practising the world’s oldest profession in the late 20th century. From wide-eyed innocent to experienced and successful professional, Annika’s story is both shocking and highly entertaining.
About the author: Annika Cleeve proudly has an alphabet of qualifications behind her name, most of which were earned during her 18 years as a sex worker. Annika made the most of the life dished up to her, plying her trade all over the world to royalty & rock stars. She will make you laugh and cry all in the same page.

An insight to an intriguing world

Where does Mattress Actress rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I like that it's a true story (perhaps sometime elaborated?) and gives you a first hand experience into the world of prostitution.

What other book might you compare Mattress Actress to, and why?

I'm not sure i could compare this to any of the erotica i've listened to as it's not necessarily erotic, but the truth is quite a turn on.
