#Autobiography: Magdalena - A Prostitute's Life in Costa Rica
by Thomas Ray O'Brien
(San Jose, Costa Rica)
Follow Magdalena from her poverty stricken childhood with her alcoholic mother and pedophile step father, through her days as the "star prostitute of the El Jardin" and beyond. A tale of sex, drugs, violence, love, poverty and survival.
"I already had a baby girl and was divorced by the time I was fourteen. I was a mother now, but I was still young, cute and very popular with the boys. I liked sex and I had a lot of boyfriends. They would share their marijuana with me and their beer or rum or glue or whatever they had and we'd have sex. I liked sex and drinking and the drugs. The sex was just one part of it all.
But I was still very poor. I worked for a few weeks at an ice cream factory but I didn't like it and I hardly made any money there. One of my boyfriends, Manfred, told me about a place I could earn money just by having sex with gringos. The place was called Hotel El Jardin, and it's still pretty famous even though it's been closed for years now. Manfred said he thought I'd be better off being paid by gringos than fooling around with the local hoodlums and giving it away for next to nothing. I decided to try it."
