Stiletto – in die onderwêreld van die seksindustrie | Family & Health
Karin Eloff , Carl F. Cronjé
Karin Eloff is what you'd call a good Afrikaans girl, with an honours degree in psychology and a conservative religious background.
Stiletto is the true story of a chaste and model schoolgirl's path to becoming Zoë – initially as a stripper, then as a dancer and masseuse in an escort agency and later as editor of a pornographic magazine.
Her path has been littered with middle-aged men, Afrikaans girls with exotic English stage names, risky as well as downright dangerous sexual behaviour, and drugs. Stiletto is about how she got there, what she learned from the experience, and how she survived it. It raises pertinent issues in our society – about men, about women, about sex, about love, and about who the real givers and takers are.
Stiletto pulls no punches in revealing the shadowy existence of the sex worker.
