Quotes

#Quote
1I don't regret what I did at all. It's consensual sex. These are men who are billionaires and these are women in their 20s. They are old enough to make adult decisions, adult choices.
2I think it's unfair that men put laws on a woman's body. I think a woman has a right to choose with her own body. I mean, I don't think prostitution is a career ... but maybe [it is] a little steppingstone?
3Look, I had the party, did the party, threw the party, was the party. I'm partied out. I live every day to its fullest and there is [the] lesson that I learned. I paid a very high price for a total disregard for the law.
4These are the richest people on earth that I'm dealing with. Their conception of money is totally different than yours or mine. They'll pay $3 million a hand at blackjack and have five hands going.
5I took the oldest profession on Earth and I did it better than anyone on Earth. Alexander the Great conquered the world at 32. I conquered it at 22.
6People don't realize that being a madam is hard work, and I was working all the time, and I was worn out from working, and I remember one night, I was out and a beautiful girl came up to me, and asked, who's answering your phone, and I thought, "Oh my god, I've got to go home and answer the phone -- because these girls need work.
7I don't recommend prostitution as a career, but if someone wants to do it, let them do it.
