In Her Own Words… Interview with a London Call Girl is the unedited transcript from a video interview I undertook with a woman working as a London call girl for my research on prostitution in the late 1990s. It is an enlightening and moving, firsthand account of a woman’s life affected by prostitution, exposing the emotional, psychological and social effects. I have made it available to download from Amazon with all royalties being donated to Beyond the Streets, a charity working to end sexual exploitation.

“Read it because she sounds like an interesting person; because it will make you cry for her and admire her; and because she describes a slice of female experience that is all too common and all too little discussed.” – The F-Word.
“Disturbing, powerful, and very real.” – Bestselling author, Stephen Leather.
“I urge anyone to read this woman’s story even if you feel well-informed in this area. Q’s words and the feeling behind her words are moving, violent, graphic and painful. They come from a place of lived-experience and honesty. Too often are voices such as hers ignored and marginalised.” – The Other Side of the Apple.
“The popularity of Secret Diary of a Call Girl was a very good example of the current societal tendency to push us towards accepting prostitution as a job which is taken through choice and which isn’t a high-risk, abusive and traumatic way to earn a living. I was pleased to find Ruth Jacobs’ publication shows an experience that details the starker psychological complexities of working in the sex trade and that we hear the interview verbatim from the woman concerned, In Her Own Words.” – Writer, Kate Kerrow.
“In Her Own Words is an extremely frank account of the complex psychology involved in selling sex.” – Nicole Rowe, Feminist Me Up.
