You Know I Ain’t No Good

I started getting into the show Secret Life of a Call Girl for 3 main reasons: I have Showtime for the moment so I figure I might as well try out their shows, I am on a British television kick and something about the life of a high class call girl intrigues me. There you have it, that’s where I started from.

The first season was fun and cute. It’s not raunchy but it is very sexual, if that makes sense. There is nudity and there are sex scenes. The call girl goes by the name Belle for the work she does but her real name is Hannah. Turns out the actress who plays her, Billie Piper, is like England’s version of Brittney Spears, which I had no idea. Don’t let this turn you off of it though, as far as I can tell the only thing they had in common was being a pop star.

I really like how confident but vulnerable Hannah is and that she has a normal but very sexy figure. I like how honest and real she is about sex and relationships. I like that she doesn’t pretend like it’s “normal” or that it’s not something that it’s not. She just really enjoys sex, so she does it for a living.

There are complicated relationships such as with her best mate Ben who clearly is in love with her. In season 2 they bring in Bambi who is starting her career as a call girl and wants Belle as her mentor. She has to deal with her family and making sure they don’t find out what she does. She tries to have romantic relationships but those are even more complicated.

I would recommend this show, for some fun and to be just a wee bit naughty.

    OMG I didn’t know that was Billie Piper! I went through this Brit Pop stage of my life and I used to listen to her! LOL. I’ve seen the beginning of the show, but haven’t kept up with it. How fun!

      @Alissa: I had never heard of her before, so weird seeing her pop videos.
