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.

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