"How the man I loved led me into a world I had never imagined..."


Adopted into a well-connected family and educated at an exclusive school, she fell instantly and hopelessly in love with a charming and charismatic cartoonist in Amsterdam. Paul and Nikki embarked on a passionate love affair, enjoying the hedonistic days of the 80s before eloping and returning to Australia. But soon Nikki found herself in a world she never imagined.

Descending into the depths of the sex industry as a dominatrix, stripper, prostitute and porn star there was almost nothing she didn’t do. Despite a stormy marriage, she and Paul starred in and marketed their highly successful Horny Housewife X-rated videos as she became the queen of Australian erotica. Leading a double life as a mother of three small children, Nikki struggled not merely with censorship but with child welfare authorities and the judgement of mainstream society.

In this extraordinary memoir, Nikki vividly recounts her intriguing past with emotional honesty and great insight, making it an unflinching and riveting account of the incredible life of the Horny Housewife.



"...an all encompassing, honest, heartfelt memoir... a truly fascinating slice of cultural and sexual Australian history."  Indigo Bloome, author of Destined to Play

"A gripping story that kept me riveted from the very first page until the end...." Xaviera Hollander, author of The Happy Hooker

"...no ordinary autobiography. It goes deeper-- in the most surprising ways. The self-revelatory details make this book lovingly intimate, smart, fun to read... and sexy. Nikki is a one of a kind." Annie Sprinkle, Ph.D. Porn star turned artist/sexologist

"Nikki's persona was unique then and still is now. As the Horny Housewife she provided fabulous adult entertainment to many people and her character was a powerful liberator of animus in the Australian community. Her book is a gem and an insight into the pre-internet adult industry which will go down in history as the most sexually creative period we ever had." Robbie Swan, Body Politics
