Storyline

Raquel is a girl, adopted by an upper middle class family, who rebelled at 17 and left her family and studies at a traditional college in São Paulo to become a call girl. Shortly after starting work, she decided to write a blog about her experiences. Since some clients thought she looked like a surfer she adopted the name "Surfistinha" which means little surfer girl. This blog became a sensation, and quickly became one of the most popular blogs in Brazil. Becoming famous, her life changed significantly. She went on to be interviewed on Brazilian talk shows similar to Oprah and David Letterman, all the while continuing her blog about her racy exploits. She wrote a book about these experiences: "O Doce Veneno Do Escorpião". Written by William Gonçalves and Matt Hisle

more fascination with porn
3 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

as all other review said this is about a real life Brazilian prostitute who became famous from a blog she kept,and where she talked about her clients and even rated their performance in bed.She became very popular and even wrote a popular book about her life.In this day and age porn sells,thats about it.Either a girl sells it directly or indirectly,society seems still fascinated with the seemy side of prostitution. The problem with this movie is,the character never really becomes likable,her job would not be so objectionable if one understood why or how she ended up being a prostitute.It is never really explained,other than a story of a woman who wants to be independed,which hardly explains her trip into prostitution,as thousands of women manage independence by working at respectable jobs.The fascination with this story is all about sex,and her sexual experiences,which makes it really pretty much a commercial for the porn profession.The life of a prostitute is just glamourized,shown as just a job with a lot of money,glamour,success and popularity,pretty much anything a girl would want.There is a downside about drug addiction,but even that is shown as just a side effect of our times and of living the high life,,not especially of the profession of a hooker. All in all,i think this movie is lost in its own sensationalizing of its subject and ends up losing any focus on the reality of the story it tries to tell.
