Jillian Lauren's, Some Girls: My Life in a Harem, gave me lots of great ideas, nevertheless, on how -- and more importantly, how not -- to begin (at least "begin" hypothetically speaking), my harem fantasy enterprise. I'd recommend Some Girls as an excellent resource for any in-the-market, would-be harem owners out there, as it unwittingly itemizes the potential pitfalls and pains-in-the-neck awaiting the prospective harem owner about to embark on, let's face it, a rather tricky-to-justify and, not to mention, illegal, lifestyle venture.
Some Girls: My Life in a Harem was also an inspiring -- at times sordid and a bit twisted (though understandably so) -- story of one brave United States college dropout's riveting escape from a man who makes Hugh Hefner seem a monogamous and faithful family man by comparison, Prince Jefri Bolkiah, and Jillian Lauren's eventual return to freedom. I recommend reading Lauren's mesmerizing memoir whether you dream of owning your own harem some day or not.
I got pitched this book for review a long time ago on the basis that the author is Jewish and I was reading a lot of Judaica (and asking for Judaica in my review guidelines) and can you believe it but I passed. Thanks for taking one for the team. sounds like a fun read :-)ReplyDelete
I personally find it all boils down to one key component: have you got top quality eunuchs? You can't build a quality harem without quality eunuchs, and it's here that the real foundation for your harem must be laid. Some off-the-street do-it-yourself penectomist out of the pages of BMEMagazine just won't do. They are pricier, but past-their-prime castrati are the most sensible option while on a shoe-string budget.ReplyDelete

You're welcome, Marie.
Thank you for what is some truly invaluable, circumspect advice I had not completely fleshed out, particularly in regards the penectomists and "past-their-prime castrati".
