Magdalena – A Prostitute’s Life in Costa Rica

Lingerie Model

Her earliest recollections are of sleeping on a mat on her grandmother’s dirt floor. When her grandmother dies, she goes to live with her actual mother, whom Magdalena barely knew. Her biggest problem in life was hunger until her mother came home one night with the man who would become her step-father. His unwanted attentions eventually drove Magdalena to run away from home with her boyfriend at the age of twelve. She becomes pregnant at thirteen and is a divorced single mother at fourteen. By fifteen she is working in a bar/hotel as a prostitute.

What follows are numerous relationships that range from millionaire gringos to lesbian drug dealers and a life filled with sex, violence, drugs and alcohol. Through it all, Magdalena somehow maintains a positive outlook.

Based on actual interviews, this book is as close to reality as it gets.
