The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl

Genre: Biographies & Memoirs
Author:Belle de Jour
Just finished reading this book, and for those of you who follow me on Facebook would know my reactions WHILE reading this. :-) But let me have the liberty of reposting my comments for the benefit of those who doesn’t know my existence on the said networking site. :-P

I love it and hate it at the same time. I don’t know. I just do. I keep on telling my friends who wished to read the book that they should be warned. This book is not for the faint hearted, and definitely not for the narrow-minded. It tells a lot. Explains a lot. Explores a lot. There are times when you’d question yourself why you even bother to read and yet you know for a fact that it would be a waste not to.

I love the reality. I love the fiction. I love the stories and the emotions behind every word of Belle de Jour. I love her witty way of telling things. Of telling her story. She has this talent to make even the most gruesome experience seem like a part of our daily lives.

Although I can say that I am an open-minded person, someone who accept things as they are, but I cannot say it’s true specially when it comes to the subject of sex. I am a believer that sex must be made by TWO persons in love. And this deed must be done with love and respect and passion and deep emotional feeling that will make this act as magical as it can be.

But on this book, there are two faces of sex that was shown. The one that I am aware of and the one I refuse to look at. But it’s there, right into my face. Written on a paperback. And I am siphoning those information like a hungry hyena.

But I must say, that my beliefs about sex is as intact as it is before I read the book. The only thing that changed is my acceptance of the fact that not everybody believes in what I believe in. And that I must respect their beliefs even if they go against my nature.

It is a must read for those who want to learn. For those willing to know the difference. I myself is astound of the way Belle de Jour narrates her story. In a way that I was able to understand and feel what she’s feeling.

Hats off to Belle and all her intimate adventures. Hats off to us readers, who were influenced and touched by Belle’s story in a way unimaginable. Hats off to Desi and Adel, my friends who introduced me to the book.

I’m looking forward to another Belle de Jour book and I hope it’ll satisfy me the way this book does. :-)
