Milking it...

OK, this is a cheap shot, and Madeline Bunting is making a perfectly reasonable point in this article - prostitution isn't the happy experience that Billie Piper's new show makes it appear - the reality is a brutal one of rape, drugs and violence, and it shouldn't be glamorised in the way it is. But still...
Piper's Secret Diary of a Call Girl is a dramatisation of the Belle de Jour novel. It's not a one-off: it is part of a genre you could call fuck lit, featuring titles such as Indecent: How I Make It and Fake It as a Girl for Hire, Dairy of a Sex Fiend, Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl, Confessions of a High-Priced Call Girl and The Internet Escort's Handbook.
Dairy of a Sex Fiend? The imagination is simply boggling...
