About the Book
The author examines the controversial subject of the relationship between prostitutes and their customers from a different perspective: from that of the john. This book tells of how and why explorations lead to adventures that lead to drastic changes.

The telling is raw and vivid as the women conduct their business and the man ventures into their anomie world of sex, drugs, violence, and homelessness. As we dip into the lives of the women he dates, the narrator's own troubled mind and history are revealed.

The buyer of the sex-for-hire service repeatedly follows his nature as he seeks to find love and romance there instead. The otherwise intelligent and resilient man recognizes the folly in that and comes to think of these encounters as fantasy adventures, separate and apart from the reality of his everyday life. But he finds it increasingly difficult to keep fantasy separate from reality while the torment that ever permeates his being remains and travels with him as he ventures from one realm to the other.

The reader must always read between the lines to understand things that the narrator does not yet realize.

 

Reviews
"Author Molineaux is an exceptionally talented writer. I was drawn in right away by the complex, troubled, intriguing characters. Sad, sweet, and realistic, Beep Beep: On being a john reveals the humanity and struggles of the author and of our ladies of the evening. Ultimately, the author shows that goodness still exists amid addiction and life on the street."
- David Aretha, award-winning author and editor
