The Education of a Very Young Madam

The Education of a Very Young Madam

A stripper at 15, involved with major league gang members before she was 20, Ma-Ling Lee has a tale to tell about life. A teenage runaway, she hung out on New York's mean streets with hustlers and pimps, dealers and hookers, until, discovering she had a knack for business, started her first brothel aged 17. When the cops finally shut her down, she bought her first internet mailing list, set up an off-shore server and reached a huge middle-class clientele.
Now in her 30s, she has outwitted conmen, served time in jail, battled a gambling addiction and fallen in love with countless high maintenance playboys. Most importantly, she continues to operate as a successful madam who, without ever laying eyes on her clients, makes $20,000 a day. Catering to upscale clients with top-end girls, her business, Girlfriend Experience, promises 'honesty, reliability and exceptional customer service'.
This hugely entertaining and genuine memoir is not just a thrilling read; it is also a fascinating insight into the American sex industry.
