PhD student Vanessa enjoys sex and her part-time job as a hotel receptionist means that she can have sex and earn a little money by sleeping with the guests on the side. Vanessa falls into artistic circles which leads to her starring in porn films, living an almost fantasy-like life where she has to create a split-personality to keep her sanity. This provocative tale is intelligent and surprisingly well-written and highly reminiscent of the erotic classic, Story of O.

Synopsis

Vocational Girl by Rosa Mundi

Our Vocational Girl isn't a tart. She just likes sex, and isn't averse to a gift or two if it comes her way. All the cheerful and enthusiastic Vanessa, brilliant and beautiful daughter of a lady vicar, ever wants to do is please - however demanding her masters. But, as she follows her calling, moving from artistic soirees to occult circles, she is manouvered into porn stardom (high production values, mind) and discovers just how exacting her masters can be: she'll be lucky to escape with her life, and her soul. As a safety valve, Vanessa develops an alter-ego, Joan. It's easier being Joan than Vanessa: Joan's not as bright, doesn't think so much - she's the girl with the body but not the brain, the sex-and-shopping girl. Together, the two girls occupy one body through its sexual triumphs and humiliations along the bumpy road to eventual redemption. Intelligent and engaging, sexy and provocative, "Vocational Girl" will leave even the most sophisticated reader breathless.
