This penetrating novel-style memoir gives an unflinching glimpse into a subject taboo by much of mainstream society. Author Birgit Waldschmidt shares how she dealt with the dangers of selling herself and promoting sex as the greatest "high" a human can achieve. She dealt this intoxicating lust-drug as a "Starlight" of the night until her need to present a superficial image to the world almost destroyed her.

Some people deal Heroin, others Cocaine, but what about dealing Flesh? Are prostitutes the only ones who peddle their bodies for cash, or do we all use physical attraction to get what we want? Women resort to flirting or sexually flaunting their bodies to hypnotize the opposite sex. And men cannot resist the allure of a girl who wants to be America's next top model sporting a seductive hairdo, dazzling make-up or a tight mini-skirt. But the temptation to "prostitute" ourselves is a corrosive evil that permeates all cultures and flourishes, robbing lives and whole societies of innocence and our "essential organic nature."

This book contains the soul story of a once innocent girl named Birgit, who after losing her beloved father to divorce, discovers how pornography helps her escape her feelings of abandonment. Soon she embarks on a path of self-destruction that ultimately entangles her in a web of prostitution, obsessive fantasy, and impossible romance-and don't forget her relentless desire for stardom. Driven by her intense need to attain perfection so that somewhere, the "man of her dreams" would be forever hers, Birgit leaves Germany to test her fate in America. Little does she know that she's in for one hell of a ride ... one that nearly wipes her off the face of the Earth.

Ultimately, and above all, this is a story of hope ... a "shrinking violet" thrust into a twisted world finds a creative way to deal with her inner person and face the realities of sexual addiction and money lust that lead her to become a responsible adult. See how the implosion of Birgit's aha moment moves her to turn fate around.
