The autobiography P.I.M.P highlights the most exciting and defining experiences in the very colourful life of a man, for whom sex became his lifestyle, his livelihood, his survival and his demon.
Charlie Spice was born on 16th October 1961, on the beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados and become one of the most controversial yet uniquely intriguing personalities to the thousands of people around the world who knew him personally or by reputation.
After a humble and troubled childhood in the Barbados, Charlie literally ran away from his home country at the young age of 21 to travel and conquer the world with nothing but the gift of gab, good looks, youth and sexual prowess on his CV.
By the time Charlie was 23, he had already acquired that savoir faire and raison d'etre which got him accepted into the most exclusive social circles worldwide, in spite of the ‘Bad Boy’ reputation he acquired.
At the tender age of 9, Charlie was sexually seduced and abused by a woman who worked for his grandmother as a house keeper. This was just one of the many childhood experiences, which had a profound impact on him and was one of the defining moments which made sex the main focus in his life.
Sex became his blessing and his curse.
As you get to know his past from reading this autobiography, it will not be a surprise that Charlie ended up working in the sex industry as a male stripper and escort. You will also understand why and how he became the international playboy and gigolo he was known for. He was the consummate seducer of women sexually.
Charlie's success in the sex industry reached its peak in Europe in the 1990's, by which time he had acquired the trust of some of the world's most powerful, wealthy and influential personalities who used his services to arrange secret encounters with attractive women (or men) for their own sexual fantasies and pleasures.
This autobiography will share some of the unbelievable experiences Charlie had with celebrities, politicians, sports personalities and other famous, powerful and influential persons who used his expertise to facilitate their sexual indiscretions. You will be reminded of how kinky, horny, promiscuous and hypocritical our so called “High Society” really is.
Over the years, Charlie built a reputation in the sex trade for being very discreet and professional. He was the ultimate ‘Fixer’. These are the two main reasons he was successful in the industry.
Empowered by his superior communication and networking skills, Charlie also enjoyed a personal friendship with most of his clients. He was often invited to sit at their dinner tables, attend their private parties and to stay as a guest in their luxury homes around the world. This enabled him to understand the mindset and lifestyles of the Rich And Famous.
Selling sex was the only thing Charlie knew how to do and he did it well.
But in an attempt to please society and redeem himself, Charlie crossed over into mainstream business on several occasions in his life. This proved to be a major mistake on each occasion as society was not only hypocritical but also very unforgiving.
Society forever condemned and stigmatized him openly for his involvement in the sex trade. But secretly, many of those same hypocrites supported and patronized his service discreetly behind closed doors.
If the truth be told, society never really wanted him to leave the sex industry. After all, who was going to manage their indiscretions so professionally and discreetly?
This autobiography will also show the world the other side of Charlie Spice. Many knew him by reputation but few knew him for the man he really was beneath the cold hard exterior. The numerous TV, radio and print interviews and articles done about Charlie over the years purposefully focused only on his life in the sex trade solely to make him infamous as a PIMP.
This bad boy reputation and persona which the media and the gossip gave Charlie only represented a fraction of the man he really was. He was actually kind, sympathetic, genuine and considerate. He was also very approachable and generous which is typical of Librans. Charlie often gave money to the homeless who begged him in the streets and was always ready to help his friends where possible.
He was a true romantic. He enjoyed jazz and classical music, and loved going to the theatre and the opera. He preferred walking on the beach and watching movies at home instead of night clubbing. After the age of 23, Charlie never drank, smoked or used drugs. He even played the violin at school and attended church every Sunday as a child. He even sang in church choir. He was extremely intelligent, articulate, stylish and trendy.
This autobiography will also show his literary skills and penmanship.
Many people disliked and envied him for his carefree, playboy and jet set lifestyle. They hated his ability to make friends easily and his courage to do and say whatever he wanted in spite of society’s reaction or condemnation.
People around the world were intrigued by the sheer mystique of the man. Many lived their dreams and fantasies vicariously through him. Many women around the world, who had secret fantasies of being high class prostitutes adored him. Many men on the other hand, who were discreetly intrigued at the idea of being a “Pimp Daddy” themselves, revered him.
Charlie was also the sexual fantasy of many women. Most women never saw Charlie as a good candidate for a boyfriend or husband and would dare not have a serious relationship with him. For them a secret fling filled with hot steamy sex was their only desire. Needless to say, he obliged some of them vengefully and others romantically.
Though Charlie was totally straight, he was also the sexual fantasy of many gay men who regretted his heterosexuality. Gay men often misinterpreted his boyish good looks, clean shaven face and his acceptance of the gay community. He was often put in the embarrassing position of having to decline sexual advances from gay men.
Ironically, Charlie was homophobic when he first left Barbados but later lost all his prejudices against the gay community as he travelled the world and discovered its sexual diversity.
Few people really knew Charlie and these were the ones who really mattered to him. These are the ones who truly loved, respected and appreciated him for the man he was.
