Flame: A Life on the Game — ‘Flame’

(Not discussed by the group but written in a personal capacity.)Flame

True story about a (male) prostitute.

When a teacher told him he’d no ambition, Stephen just kept dumb and thought to himself: “I’m not going to stay around here working in a factory, honey. I’m going OUT THERE, where there’s LIFE. I’m going to be a prostitute, just like my mum”.

Hilarious and sad. Although the author has lived superficially and become wealthy, the cliche about use of the body for objective sex hindering the ability to love and be loved is clearly not true in this case. The prostitute has an almost pastoral role for clients.

Some intriguing allusions to fairly famous people in government.
