Summary

[Contains explicit content] Meet Miranda. She is a cheerful and happy-go-lucky single girl who just happens to be a dominatrix with a dungeon in her flat where she services clients with flogging and extreme correction and (if she's lucky) gets the occasional slave to pay her for the honour of doing her vacuuming. 

When she's not delivering 30 lashes to the sensitive parts of religious zealots or doing step aerobics in stilettos on the buttocks of retired army officers, she is just trying to get on with the neighbours and make her flatmate, Dan, realise that in spite of what he may think of her job, she could just be the girl of his dreams (and not just his nightmares). 

This is a refreshingly funny and joyfully rude sitcom that proudly celebrates sex, nonconformity, and doing the wrong thing.

As an Audio Show - free for members - when you add Slaving Away to your library, you'll get all 6 episodes, each with a runtime of about 30 minutes.

Fruity Chuckles!

In truth I didn't warm to this immediately as so many other reviewers seem to have. I was going to go for four stars but when a female dominatrix demands five stars off you during the closing credits what else can you do but obey?

Sure this isn't for the squeamish but it has some bloody funny moments and I think it got better as it went along and in fact many of the best lines were in the final episode.

Personally apart from Miranda herself I think the driving instructor was the star of the show, he has some absolutely cracking lines. Some of it was a bit overdone such as the next door neighbours who I could have done without but as a way to cleanse the aural pallet between grisly crime thrillers and zombie apocalypses an episode of this seemed to work a treat for me.

Brilliantly Funny

I really enjoyed this series and finished it in a single sitting. The narration by everyone is absolutely fantastic. Hopefully audible renew this show for another series!

Very funny and hoping there is going to be more, there's loads of scope left in this series.

Brilliant! Funny and well performed.

This was a great surprise! The actors were great and the main characters likeable and identifiable with. It's not explicit though it is about a sex worker but the sex is more "meta" than actual.

It's like a sexy Black Books for your ears

I didn't know what to expect when I first downloaded this, but after listening to all episodes I now, medically, need more! Very funny, great writing, with enough incite into a sex-workers world without going over the top… and that 4th wall break!

Give Miranda a 2nd season! Then some more!

Marvellous Listen

What did you like most about Slaving Away?

It seemed very real, as I am sure it was given the background of the author. made me laugh out loud, especially the fetishes that people asked for.

What other book might you compare Slaving Away to, and why?

I don't think I have ever come across a book like it, that's why we should have another series.

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, follow on twitter, but will look out for more material, in fact I did listen to a radio interview
after the Edenborough festival so yes

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Deffo made me laugh

Any additional comments?

Bring on the next series, and quick snap about it...what oh!

Brilliantly Funny

What did you like most about Slaving Away?

All of it! It was hilarious and so relatable

What did you like best about this story?

All of the characters were amazing and I loved Miranda & Dan's friendship.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I really enjoyed what the Brigadier said in the review. Oh, and the hilarity of the fetish market, especially the "piggy" bit. Err, and the neighbours... so weird, but so very funny.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! I listened to the whole thing as I was doing the housework and was hoping to find more episodes.

Any additional comments?

I could listen to this cast everyday. They were entertaining, hilarious and I can't wait for more!

This Is So Good

This is one of the best books I have listening to ages, it is very funny and the banter is that good, it needs a second listen, the driving instructor had me laughing all the way around the park, the Dogs thought there was something wrong with me !

The funniest thing on audible

I raced through this series, it's absolutely hilarious. I hope there is a second series planned. The characters are amazing and so brilliantly narrated, I could have listened to them all day. This would make a brilliant TV comedy series. Seriously, just download it. If you have a pulse and an open mind you'll enjoy this.
