Re-released, explore the real life of a working girl, as Lisa experiments with her sexuality, mixes with gangsters, socialites and millionaires, as well as running an escort agency.
Red Velvet is a memoir in three parts by former call girl Lisa Lou. Lisa's memories are funny, poignant but above all, compassionate and we see the courtesan's life through a unique and frequently sardonic point of view. Divided into three parts, Red Velvet traces Lisa's early experiences, from a childhood of abuse to working as a high-class prostitute in Melbourne, Perth, and Copenhagen right up until the time she meets her wealthy lover Red. Part two depicts the complex and erotic partnership of Lisa and Red as they explore the limits of their sexuality and hob nob with gangsters, socialites and millionaires, and part three examines the mechanics of running an escort agency as Lisa goes into business for herself.
