We had a retirement party for Marie last evening it was a surprise. At the time of her announcement there was a little talk among her girls of doing something but the objection kept coming up that she’s our pimp and why should we do anything. But the idea never went away so a date was picked and a restaurant meeting room reserved. Since I started there has been a complete turnover of the Paris based girls and I was the only one with the contact information of any past companions, so I contacted them.

In the end twelve of Marie’s former escorts came plus a few lovers or husbands. The age range was twenty-one to forty something. Beside the girls who worked with me I don’t know if any of the others are still in the trade but the conversation was interesting and it turned into a bit of a roast and it was evident from some of the stories that only the passage of time turned bitterness to humor.

I've never heard about girls throwing their 'pimp' a retirement party so that is a first. Marie must be quite a nice lady for you girls to do that for her. Was she pleasantly surprised? I bet it was an awesome party just being among you pretty girls! :) I'm sure my invite must have gotten lost in the mail. Bummer! :D

Yep, how did I suspect that the only one who knew where the 'old hands' of the past were was Kim? The social secretary for dozens of people no doubt! It's always a nice touch, and it's true what they say, time heals almost all wounds. Glad it came off well. If you keep in touch with a bunch of them, it might make for a better book too. Just a thought. Cheers, 'VJ', ga.

Pete, the relationship between a whore and her manager or pimp, what ever, is complicated. This added to the stew of feelings and emotions that we have around what we do.

The reason the party idea kept coming back was not that we wanted to do something for Marie, but that we needed some closure on that part of our lives and our relationship with her. What suprised me is that some of the women present hadn't worked for her for years.
