Guilty Pleasure

Have seen every episode. Graphic, witty and funny. Not for the faint hearted! Based on the series of books by an anonymous high-class London call girl known as Belle du Jour (named after Luis Bunuel's famous film). The real Belle revealed her true identity late last year, she's a research scientist. In the series, Belle deals with a large array of call gril problems from safety, to keeping her professional life separate from her private life, to the many trials and tribulations of picky customers. The show manages to stay fresh, however, by portraying a smart woman who likes what she does, rather than being forced into it by the woes of life.
