Sherry was one of those dolls you list on your expense report…

An Explosive Indictment Of The Call Girl Racket — And Women Like Sherry Jenkins, Whose Lover Did Not Know Her Profession…!

From the back:

A Call Girl is anybody… maybe your boss’s wife or yours… maybe your sweetheart, yes even your daughter! For the call girl comes from any walk of life – every level of today’s lust-ridden, money-mad; sales-crazy society. Working by appointment only, she may give more satisfaction in a night than some women do in a lifetime. If you’ve got the expense account and your name is “John” you probably have her number. And you’ll probably use it, if you don’t give a hang what happens to yourself — or her…

A lot of Johns had Sherry’s number at Central Hotel — and then along came Harry Barnes, to whom she gave a new exchange: LOve 1-0000 — a number no one had ever dialed before. Could she hide her trade from Harry, and so manage to steal him from a wife said to give away to many what Sherry sold to a few? If so, Sherry would have to depend on friends who were worse than enemies, friends like Ma Williams, the madam. Flame-haired Billie Gordon, who loved bawdry and nothing else. Joe Dolan, who wanted to blackmail Sherry. Skinny Lane, the rapist looking for more of same. And, of course, a drunken father who swore Sherry had been sired by another man!

The Girl Who Would Stop At Nothing For Thrills
Candy, the sexpot — Candy, the voluptuous — Candy, with a cashbox for a heart

From the back:

“Candy. You can’t mean it,” Jeff said.
“But I do, Jeff.”
“You can’t stop loving me just like that. I’ve given up everything for you. My wife. My family. My job….”
“Candy. Is there… someone else?”
“Who is he?”
“It’s not a ‘he’, Jeff.”
