Rebel Without A Clue
A Memoir
by Janet Green

‘Listen, I don’t know how it happened. By rights at twenty five years old I should have been married to a Jewish accountant, having had two children and another on the way. Probably living in Croydon. As it turned out, at that age I was a dope smoking, stripping lesbian. What can I tell you?’

Having been brutally introduced to sex at the tender age of fourteen, Janet Green’s strikingly honest memoir begins as she completes her first gig as a stripper at a rough pub in Hackney; she’s very nervous, and rather stoned...

Beginning in the 1950s, Janet’s early sexual experiences are put aside when she begins to question her sexuality – she rejects any consideration that she might be a lesbian – she just wants to experiment. In a time when gay sexuality was hidden, Janet was unsure how to meet other girls who were not lesbians. It was her sister, Debbie, who suggested swinging parties and Janet found that that was the solution.

Janet went on to live in a passionate, but volatile, relationship before relocating to a hippy commune where she developed a penchant for recreational drugs, becoming seduced by the mellow lifestyle. During her time there, Janet was introduced to Dany who encouraged her to become both a stripper and glamour model. Knowing this had a limited shelf life, Janet begun a degree course in Social Sciences and embarked on a relationship with a young woman, Naomi.

Around the same time, Janet’s sister relayed the shocking revelation that their father has sexually abused her as a child, which flung Janet’s life into despair. Shocked and devastated, Janet poured her energies into study. She went on to graduate and found that her confidence blossomed. Bright, lovable and popular, Janet discovered that education was her passport to success. She might still be a rebel, but no longer without a clue...
