Xaviera Hollander

  • You can call me mercenary, or call me madam, but, as I always tell my customers — just call me anytime!

  • My method? Basically the same principle as Masters and Johnson, only they charge thousands and it's called therapy. I charge $50 and it's called prostitution.

  • When the stocks go up, the cocks go up!

  • A freak is basically anyone who needs fantasy, degradation, or punishment in order to achieve his interpretation of erotic gratification.

  • ... he had all the charm of a turtle and was as amusing as a traffic accident.

  • I might not be a psychiatrist, but I am convinced that sex is not as important as we tend to make it. First there is that little feeling, that little red flame, called love. Blow on the flame and make it get bigger like a fire, don't blow it out like a candle.

Xaviera Hollander, 1943
