I’ll be doing a live interview about my book on Talksport some time between 12.00 and 1.00 am Wednesday morning. I’ll be off down to London tomorrow and I’ll be stopping over night to do my interview in the early hours.

I hope I don’t get asked about sport or I will be stuck! Lol 🙂

More Press…

I was trying to understand why I have been so upset about newspapers printing stuff that’s in the book.

The thing is I wrote the book to try and show people that there was so much more to escorting than what people think, which is that men only pay for sex. Since the press want to just discuss and print all the graphic sex making me out to be a convent girl and sex crazed loon that became a hooker, it’s a little frustrating to say the least.

Because the things they printed are taken out of context it doesn’t really achieve what I wanted it to achieve. I’m trying my best to think that any publicity is good publicity but I’m having second thoughts (no good now I know!) now as to whether I have done the right thing by putting my face and name to it.

I stumbled accross an interesting blog that’s now a book (the book arrived today) Bete De Jour – The Intimate Adventures of an Ugly Man, and this guy who from what I can gleam discusses his various sex exploits, dating and experiences with women in general. I’m not sure yet if it’s as graphic as mine. I’m in the middle of a book at the mo, but it’s next on the list. And he has used a pseudonym and hasn’t put his face to it.

Belle De Jour is anonymous as are various other books where people discuss their sex lives so I’m beginning to ponder what on earth was I thinking!

I know there’s no going back now. I haven’t regretted anything I’ve done in my life so far, but hopefully I won’t regret this.

So has anyone seen it in the shops?

I’m keen to find out when it’s on the shelves! I’m not going to go out and look for it so I’m waiting for a friend to say they’ve spotted it before I go in a shop in disguise to see it and take a moment to feel proud. I know friends that have pre-ordered it on Amazon have their copies. One escort friend said she couldn’t put it down and ended up reading the lot in two days. She really enjoyed it so I hope that others will too and that I’ll get more positive feedback for all my hard work.

It’s taken me years to write and I do feel a real sense of achievement. Although it’s a shame that it’s not the sort of book that my parents or Grandparents can read. My mum and dad still want their copy though 🙂

What can I say? Lol 🙂

When NOTW came forward although it wasn’t my first choice, I did think it would be good advertising for the book.

Of course I knew what they would do – sensationalise my story and make it sound as shocking as possible and my job as sleazy as possible.

It wasn’t nice to read but it could have been worse. They took one sentence from one part of my book and put it next to another sentence to create a very different meaning. They painted my life as an escort as something that I was ashamed of, which is totally untrue, and they used the worst photos they could find!

The only interview I actually had with them was the one on their website that was filmed. The rest of the article they made up, loosly based on what was in the book.

My friends seemed to love the article saying that if they didn’t know me they would want to buy the book, and that’s why I did it – to promote my book.

One friend rightly pointed out that most authors would kill for that sort of publicity and another said a double middle page spread in any sort of national newspaper would be worth thousands of pounds.

The Girlfriend Experience – Rebecca Dakin

Welcome to my new blog!

I thought I’d share my journey with you all as I make the transition back from Bea to Beki. I’ve been escorting for 9 years and I started writing my book around 4 years ago. I was prompted to start writing after reading Belle De Jour. I wanted to educate people about the infamous ‘girlfriend experience’ and challenge peoples views on escorting.

I’m going to blog how I integrate back into ‘normal life’ after a whirlwind exciting 9 years of escorting.

What am I going to do now? … Well you’ll have to watch this space 🙂
