Editorial Reviews

As her real estate career began to stall in the face of the housing crisis, Annabelle T. Baxter turned to webcamming in order to pay the bills. What she didn't expect was that this would lead her down the path to sex work, from stripping to erotic massage. Zanna King performs deftly as she navigates Baxter's revealing memoir with great sensitivity, intelligence, and wit. The strength of King's performance allows the listener to see Baxter - even as the details become more salacious - as a fiercely smart, strong, and unapologetic woman who manages to keep her dignity intact.

Publisher's Summary

Secrets of a Webcam Girl is the true story of a girl's transition from business suit to birthday suit as a means to fix mounting financial problems. Annabelle begins working as a webcam girl, stripping and performing sex shows online. Her efforts to capitalize on the recession-proof sex trade prompt a foray from webcam to massage table, where she offers happy-ending body rubs. Told with candor and wit, this memoir reveals the fetishes and infidelities of her patrons, whose hidden identities often trigger stunning revelations and unfettered perversities.

Not bad

Not bad, but the title is something of a misnomer. After being unable to earn a living in real estate during a recession, the author tries her hand as a web cam performer. There are about 70 very short chapters in this book. Only the first few are about her web cam career, followed by a few as a stripper. Almost all of the book is about her career giving topless massages to men, with a so-called happy ending. This is basically a journal, with most chapters about different clients, and her experiences with them and reactions to them. All in all, I guess a girl's got to do what she has to do, but the life seems kinda sad. I hope she's been able to get out of this life.

The narration by Zanna King was quite appropriate to the story. It had the right degree of cynicism for the work she was relaying. Nice job.

Even I'm Shocked That I Liked It!!

By the very title, this book would not be my my natural choice, but the title intrigued me just enough to check it out. Even I was surprised that I chose it. Shockingly, I really liked it!
This isn't a slutty or demeaning (to women or men) book. It came across as one describing their job and how they ended up where they did. She's not a Call Girl or a Prostitute, if that's what you're thinking. She's not a drug addict. In fact, she's an educated woman.
I chose it because the title mentioned webcam (not prostitution - which I didn't want to hear about in great detail). It's much, much more than webcam, but still not prostitution or call girls. Shocked there's somewhere in between? So was I!!!!
The only thing that would have made this book better would have been if the author read it herself, but the narrator sounded like it was her very own life she was describing, so she did a fantastic job!
If you want to know what goes on behind closed doors, then this book will tell you - without you actually having to go behind the closed doors yourself.

Narrator needs a drink

She had a pleasant voice, but sounded like she had cotton mouth. Other than that it was alright.

Absolutely nothing worthwhile or interesting here

A long, boring book about a woman who hates her job as a masseuse and her adventures of trying to talk men out of wanting her sexually while she jerks them off. Her retelling stories about work makes my office job sound fascinating. So stupid, I’m embarrassed I listened to it all.

Incorrect title

Spoiler alert! She spends most of the time talking about her massage with happy ending experiences. Pretty good material. Would have liked more!

No sir, I didn't like it.

This book is probably at the bottom of all of the audio books I've listened to, even the returned ones. It honestly seems like the reason she gave for entering these industries are untrue. I don't think anyone would run to join an escort service at the expense of their relationship or without selling one of their multiple properties unless they had a desire to be an escort was more important.

The title is misleading too. The majority of this book is short chapters on her interactions with the guys that pay her to jack them off. Few chapters are about her being a cam girl. No real effort is put into why she wanted to do these things or how her life was affected. I started skimming the book at the end, but i felt bad for the people she's dating that are kept in the dark about the kind of person she is and what she does.

Narration is on point though.

good but strange

I guess I thought this would be more like a story rather than an actual memoire. the details were interesting, but dull at the same time. I finished it because I'm stubborn not because it was interesting.

Interesting story

Interesting look into a life that I know nothing about. It has made me weirdly suspicious of every man in my life though. Ha!

Disappointing

Would you try another book written by Annabelle T. Baxter or narrated by Zanna King?

No; I found the book dull (when the topic could have been so interesting!) and very scattered. Little emphasis was put on her life as a cam girl, and the stories were disjointed. Zanna appeared to try her best, but there just wasn't much *there* for her to go off of.
