When Nikki Stern left suburban Melbourne for Europe in the early 1980s, little did she know that her life was about to change dramatically. Adopted into a well-connected family and educated at an exclusive school, she fell instantly and hopelessly in love with a charming and charismatic cartoonist in Amsterdam. Paul and Nikki embarked on a passionate love affair, enjoying the hedonistic days of the '80s before eloping and returning to Australia. But soon Nikki found herself in a world she never imagined.
Descending into the depths of the sex industry - as a dominatrix, stripper, prostitute and porn star - there was almost nothing she didn't do. Despite a stormy marriage, she and Paul starred in and marketed their highly successful Horny Housewife X-rated videos as she became the queen of Australian erotica. Leading a double life as a mother of three small children, Nikki struggled not merely with censorship but with child welfare authorities and the judgement of mainstream society.
In this extraordinary memoir, Nikki vividly recounts her intriguing past with emotional honesty and great insight, making it an unflinching and absorbing account of the incredible life of the Horny Housewife.

Just a study in how a person can be manipulated?

I don't know. It was interesting to see how someone just kind of drifted into the world, the business really, of pornography. I'm always looking for someone to write something positive about porn. This book is mostly negative but the thing that will probably stick with you after this book is how one person can get pulled in and then make what appears to be only half-hearted attempts to get out. That's almost a theme - people start in porn for the excitement and the money; they get out (partially or completely) then find they miss the excitement and the money. When I finally get out of computer programming, the excitement won't pull me back in and the money won't be there anyway.
