petite, bohemian, feminine goth lady, femme fatale, and sexy trollop of wild abandon...
prostitute of the streets, kept woman, whore...I am all of these...with total abandon

'in truth…she is a salamander, she is a nymph…she is a bacchante of the menelean mount.'

My Desires:

all of France, especially Paris
Italian men
sultry dark eyes
the seductive feel of black velvet and black silk
black garters and black silk stockings
the occult
blood vampirism
the night

Luxuriating in beauty treatments is essential to the courtesan; she knows this is a wonderful way to celebrate her sensuality.

Cleopatra, queen of Egypt, was known for her beautiful complexion. One of ancient Egypt's most effective skin treatments is still in use today: milk and honey.

Cleopatra's Milk And Honey Bath

1.) 2 cups of milk
2.) 2 tbls honey
3.) rosewater

Pour milk, honey, and rosewater into a warm bath before stepping into the water. Soak for at least 20 minutes. The honey will soften and the milk will exfoliate your skin.

Cleopatra's Milk And Honey Cleanser

1.) Half cup honey
2.) Half cup plain yogurt
3.) 3 teaspoons rosewater

After mixing, apply a small amount to the face and neck and massage gently.

The eyes are the most captivating feature, and a courtesan knows this well. In ancient Egypt, kohl was used to accentuate the eyes. Kohl is powdered antimony, a brittle metallic elementary body of bright bluish-white colour and flaky crystalline texture. Artemis Imports, a belly dance mail-order supply house, sells both light and darker grades of kohl of fine quality:

To apply kohl you need:
1) a small stick or large toothpick which has both ends rounded off. Place this in olive oil overnight so that it soaks into the wood. You may also use the olive oil to clean your stick after use.
2) a packet of kohl powder.

Hold stick in right hand to apply to right eye. Dip tip of stick into kohl powder. Hold stick parallel to eye, and starting at the inner point of the eye, run it between the eyelids. Re-powder stick, hold in left hand and repeat on left eye.

"So sweet and delicious do I become,
when I am in bed with a man
who, I sense, loves and enjoys me,
that the pleasure I bring excels all delight,
so the knot of love, however tight
it seemed before, is tied tighter still."
— Veronica Franco (Poems and Selected Letters)
