I'm back with another book review. I just finished up Shot Girls by Vanity Wonder an ex stripper turned urban model. She is the first person to ever write about the Underground World of "ass shots".
This book just okay. I struggled to finish it because I could tell that the author was very delusional. I just didn't understand how in the beginning of the book she claimed to be "intellectually superior" to most of her friends and associates and described stripping as a legit way to get money. She went from being drug free and in total opposition of butt injections to being the Poster child for the underground butt injections and popping Xanax and Ecstasy pills regularly.
With that being said, if you are interested in seeing why and how these women were willing to travel to dingy motel rooms to get unknown substances injected into their butts all in the name of Vanity this is one of the only books that delves into that world. You will see lawyers, well known Gospel singers, wives trying to get their ex husbands back, and even 70 year old women endangering their lives just for a round butt.I think the common denominator in all of these women's lives was a lack of self esteem and unhealthy body image. There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve something about yourself, but if I just had to undergo surgery I would at least want it done by a licensed surgeon.
I was hoping that this woman got some ounce of common sense throughout this book and hopefully some redemption but it ended on a very flat note.
After reading this book, I will never again take my butt for granted. I am most of the time trying to conceal my large posterior because of the negative attention it can garner but these women were literally DYING to get what I was born with.
For anyone curious about the butt implants, this was worth a read. I was looking to see if she delved into the psychological reason that she did this, but unfortunately, the entire book was her pretty much taking accountability for her actions, but not explaining how she went from being opposed to this to undergoing many rounds of injections.
Here is a picture of the author in all of her butt implanted glory:
