TAN Digest: "Cinderella Ate My Daughter" & "Fanny Hill" | Euro Teen Seductress & Prostitute

In the chapter "Sparkle, Sweetie!" of Orenstein's Cinderella Ate My Daughter, Orenstein wrote that the prepubescent beauty contestants reminded her of 18th century European museum portraits of: 
"[...] European princesses - little girls in low-cut gowns, their hair piled high, their cheeks and lips roughed red - that were used to attract potential husbands, typically middle-aged men [...]" 
And Orenstein overheard an overeager mother adjure her 6-year-old, "[O]ne of the judges is a man, so be sure you wink at him!"
The Paris Review tweeted a link to an article about John Cleland’s: 
"[...] two-volume novel called Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, or Fanny Hill, published when he was in debtor’s prison between 1748 and 1749 [...]" 
In the book, Fanny entered the brothel when she was 15, which preceded her "sexual initiation" that involved lipstick lesbian sex with a seasoned prostitute. And her first customer was a: "[...] debauched elderly caller “with a yellow cadaverous hue”."
