SYDNEY BIDDLE BARROWS AUTOGRAPH


Sydney Biddle Barrows was born on January 14, 1952. Sydney biddle Barrows is known as the Mayflower Madam, was a modern American madam. After her escort service was exposed and disbanded, she gained worldwide notoriety, in part because she was part of the upper-class Biddle family of Philadelphia and is a Mayflower descendant. She is also related to the Drexel banking family of Philadelphia which includes St. Katharine Drexel. After a short career in fashion (after graduating from New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology), she was introduced to the world of high-class prostitution and started her own escort service named Cachet, which existed in New York City from 1979 to 1984. Unlike other escort agencies, Cachet offered an unparalleled service at the time, focusing on delivering a classy and elegant experience to the wealthy and powerful who either visited or lived in New York City. In October 1984, her escort service was shut down and she was charged with promoting prostitution by the New York City District Attorney’s Office. After she pled guilty, she published a best-selling autobiography, Mayflower Madam, which later became a television movie of the same name starring Candice Bergen. She has written two subsequent books on modern sexual etiquette. In late 2008 Barrows finished “Uncensored Sales Strategies”, co-authored with well known “No BS” marketing expert Dan Kennedy. Since the mid-late 1990’s, Barrows has run a sales consulting business with a focus on customer service and Experience Strategy. Referred to in business circles as “Madame Experience”, Barrows has been married to “attorney of last resort” Darnay Hoffman, whose clients include Joel Steinberg since May 14, 1994. She currently lives in New York City. Original Sydney Biddle Barrows Autograph, signed on a 3 x 5 inch Index Card. Regular Price – $ 84.00 / Sale Price – $ 39.95.
