Confessions of a Callgirl

I have just stumbled upon this weblog: Confessions of a College CallGirl; the writings are as real as it gets, extremely well-written and emotionally charged. The story of a callgirl in New York City...she uses her blog to get rid of the burdens that sit on her heart and the dust that settles on her soul from her experiences, but then she also has this no-nonsense take on life and survival... one tends to pick up on some amount of self-doubt in her ability to really hold on to a worthwhile relationship (this is beyond the scope of her 'job')..ie. once she's retired. Even so, she speaks of the number of times she has in fact, tried to retire... and the ways in which the tide pulls her back in again...

Factual accounts written here are fascinating in the humanity and necessary compassion evoked by this blogger. The link love leads to what I thought was the most distinguished of her new articles in terms of who she is as a woman. I also enjoyed the style of writing...

Shafs darling...I read through some of the stuff...she is a very good writer...reflective and yet it somehow resonates even if I can't relate. But on some level she makes you aware of how human we all are.

Thats just it, Azra... as a feminist, she asserts using her body as a way of sustaining life, dreams, etc... dependin on your stance, of course all of this is debatable..but then her journey goes beyond that when she starts losing 'something' of herself... and she looks to retire a number of times...
and at the end of it all, we're left with this yet another metaphor of just what it is to be simply human in taking on whatever life presents us with :)
