The fascinating and extraordinary true story of how a young woman from a privileged background found herself drawn into the dark world of petty prostitution and pornography by the troubled man she loved.

When Nikki Stern left suburban Melbourne for Europe in the early 1980s, little did she know that her life was about to change dramatically.

Adopted into a well-connected family and educated at an exclusive school, she fell instantly and hopelessly in love with a charming and charismatic cartoonist in Amsterdam. Paul and Nikki embarked on a passionate love affair, enjoying the hedonistic days of the 80s before eloping and returning to Australia.

But soon Nikki found herself in a world she never imagined. Descending into the depths of the sex industry - as a dominatrix, stripper, prostitute and porn star - there was almost nothing she didn't do. Despite a stormy marriage, she and Paul starred in and marketed their highly successful Horny Housewife X-rated videos as she became the queen of Australian erotica.

Leading a double life as a mother of three small children, Nikki struggled not merely with censorship but with child welfare authorities and the judgement of mainstream society.

In this extraordinary memoir, Nikki vividly recounts her intriguing past with emotional honesty and great insight, making it an unflinching and absorbing account of the incredible life of the Horny Housewife.

About the Author

Nikki Stern lives with her children and works as a librarian. In her spare time she indulges in her three great interests: books, music and art.

      Rather unbeleivable I feel so sorry for Dori how ashamed she would have been of her only daughter. I would also have liked to hear his side of the story as it seems Nikki blames him for everything that happened but we all know it takes two to tango I wonder why she would have written such a graphic demoralising account of her life ?????
