Must have been a slow news week. They manage to take half the article to string out the idea that she *might* be a lesbian. Googling her name I found that I had posted another article featuring her and other teacher/call girls from around the same time.
She later went on to write an apparently salacious yet frank book about her days as call girl. What I found most interesting (at least in the post I read) was the idea that a woman’s prison was the only place a woman could safely be openly gay. According to the blurb, she was not, in fact a virgin when she got into the business. Shocker I know.
Also a somewhat disturbing quote about her father that intimated a possibly abusive father and/or the public’s fascination with the Freud: “My father was a shadowy figure in my life, scarcely distinguishable from any other big man with a hat and cigar”.

INSIDE THE McMANUS MYSTERY… THE CALL GIRL WHO CLAIMS SHE’S A VIRGIN
BY JAMES KERR MILLER
THE NAME “VIRGINIA” is derived from the word “virgin”. And, incredible as it might seem, it’s quite possible the most talked-about call girl in the country today is aptly named.
We’re referring to Virginia McManus, the beautiful blonde who, until recently, followed the school-teaching profession in Brooklyn, by day, while allegedly following the world’s oldest profession in Manhattan, by night.
