How To Become A Manhattan Madam

Meet Mae Lee, the pseudonymous madam who runs a small but thriving escort agency out of her New Jersey apartment. Mae Lee is only 30 but rather gifted, as she's been successfully managing her own business for a solid 10 years. How, you ask, do you end up raking in six-figures, tax-free, through whore-management? Mae Lee took the traditional path from her Connecticut youth:

But material comfort and a doting mother were not enough to counteract the ennui and inner turmoil that turned her into a teenage hell-raiser. At 13 she began running away to Boston. At 16 she was selling LSD. At 19, she got her first chance to manage a group of Thai prostitutes who had been brought to this country illegally.

The traditional Sweet 19 birthday is always a big one.
