Read full description of the books Vor meiner Zeit:The moral of this book, which applies mostly to women, is that you should not get married to someone who, if they discover by accident that you had an earlier career as a porn actress which you had felt, quite understandably, that you didn't need to mention, will go very quietly mad, so quietly that there will be no signs that you should get the hell out of the house.
It may be a very good moral but it's not so useful, I think. I mean, you can hardly ask your affianced gentleman "Just imagine for a moment, darling, that you found out I'd been a porn star for a year at the age of 20 - oh yes, it's only a funny thought exercise, I know, indulge me won't you - so, now, how would you feel, hmmm? Okay? Would we be cool? No, no, as I say, it's just a crazy little imaginitive esprit, dear, nothing more..."
Well, maybe somebody could try that and report back to us what happens.
