Wow. A Fan Since I Was A Freshman In High School 1
Dear Ms. Hollander,
I fondly remember cutting class and sneaking off into the woods where I sat and read your memoir.
Having just completed the 8th grade in a strict Catholic school you helped me to understand that *** was more than OK ... and that it can be a wonderful adventure.

Recently visiting my ex who lives in a big house in France with a huge library, I came across your book there. It was a real find as I'm doing research for a film about a woman who willingly goes into prostitution. And I am happy to report that it is with great satisfaction and interest that I am reading your book! Nic

Like so many others, I found "The Happy Hooker" among my parents' things. They never saw it again, but I put the book to good use.
Thanks for opening my mind and heart. You taught me to enjoy every aspect of my ***uality.
I consider you an important early influence on my life.
Love you. Thanks!

Loving "The Happy Hooker" book
I'm 30 and just heard of your book, "The Happy Hooker". I'm halfway through and felt compelled to let you know how great it is. Your story is ***, you are very brave, and your text holds up in 2013 as though you wrote it yesterday. BRAVO, MADAM!

Drs, en nog wat meer (want men doet soms wat...)
Hai tante Vera,
Ik ben de kleinzoon van je oom Ben (die van Het Parool, je weet wel).
Wellicht interessant, want we hebben elkaar eerder letterlijk bijna getroffen:
je reed me ooit eens bijna aan tegenover Paradiso met dat suffe brommertje van
je (met iemand achterop) bij het vorige concert van De Residents.
Ik had toen iets moeten zeggen, of slaan wellicht, want: brommerend toeteren
op de stoep om mij weg te krijgen voor een parkeerplekje: tantetje toch...
Maar, dat is vele jaren geleden. En wist jij veel wie je voor je had.
Als een iets ouder en milder neefje meldt je nu:
The Residents verschijnen op 20 mei a.s. aan het IJ, en de vvk is begonnen.
Wellicht ook voor jou leuk om ze weer eens te zien?
Jouw onbekende neefje:

I was 13 when I discovered your book in my Dad's closet in 1975. You were the first, the best, the only for many years. erm, apart from the boys.
You shaped and left an indelible mark on my psyche, which remains today.
I would so much love to come and enjoy the off-stage familial environs in your pics - there's a certain 'circle of life' that would be finally fulfilled.
In lieu of that, at least I can touch you with this email.
You made a difference in my life. You allowed me to liberate my thinking.
You are, indelibly, a part of me.
Silk touches and brief hugs,

I remember picking up your book from my mother's bedside table. A child then, I read it. I had already been groomed by my uncles. Since then I have had a pretty 'normal' life but now in my 50'th year I'd like to pursue my own life.
Glad that you are recovering. Hopefully I will meet you in Amsterdam to finish my education. x x

Dear Ms. Hollander, I am sure you meet alot of people, but meeting you is one memory I will never forget. Drew and I were in Amsterdam (me for the first time) last Easter and you and Phillip opened your home to us for a very nice visit. Bought a few things from you all, got some pics and had a lovely visit. We stayed too long and missed the train and Phillip ended up taking us back into town. Just read your newsletter and I am so glad that you are doing better after the operation! Take care of your sweet self, enjoy Spain and hope to get the thrill of seeing you again! Leslie

Xaviera, I will have to say that YOU and you alone were and are my sexual mentor from the time I first babysat for our local Pharmacist and his wife on Saturdays. I was very young, I thought I was 13, but your book info says that you first published in '72. So according to that, I was a sophomore in High School. Oh well, "The Happy Hooker" taught me things that I might have never known and I was able to come to totally understand how incredible *** could be. Not so much for me (not sure why), but learning how to give it. And I've continued to learn. I've spoken about you to everyone important in my life and have sung your praises. YOU WERE MY TRUE TEACHER, and I've never even bought your book until now. I want to read it again and again and again. I'm a very sensual person and I raised my three boys to be the same way. Always open door policy on discussions about ***. Thank you SO MUCH for being there right when I needed you. I'm ordering 2 books right now (one for my best friend) and of course one for me. I may order more after that. I adore you and hope that you continue sharing your knowledge with us all. With my sincere love, judy cubillos
