ONE of America’s most famous madams is to lay bare the truth in inland Andalucia this Autumn.

Xaviera Hollander, known for her 1971 memoir The Happy Hooker, will speak openly about her juicy escapades at a meeting of the Amigas de Casa women’s group in Trabuco.

As a former madame, callgirl, Penthouse columnist, and theatre producer, Hollander now operates a guesthouse in Marbella called Villa Caprice.

Her famed memoir – which was turned into a film starring Lynn Redgrave, who died this year – has sold over 16 million copies.

It was notable for bringing sexual liberation into the open more than ever before. But in 1971 she was arrested for prostitution in New York and was forced to flee the US.

Like controversial film director Roman Polanski – who was accused of raping a 13-year-old girl – she has never been back to the States and has not faced trial.

Hollander intends to dedicate the session to helping her audience better understand human sexual relations and become ‘better lovers’ themselves.

Anyone can attend the colorful event in October for just five euros.

Thanks so much for the article. The Amigas de Casa now actually have almost 80 paid up members and is growing monthly. We would be over the moon if by our AGM in Nov we hit the 100. Just one comment about the article – we need interested people to pre purchase the tickets at least 2 weeks prior to the event. Ring or e-mail me for details of how to purchase the tickets.

Many thanks again for the publicity. It’s very much appreciated.
