Alison said she was only 17 when she was groped by two men at a party in Japan before being raped by another man who took her home afterwards. She explained that while she was working as a young model in Japan, she was invited to a party by a "lovely English girl" whom she lived with. She said she did not even know the host of the party but went along anyway because she was expecting a fun evening until it became the bane of her life.

"I had just turned 17. Again, I was very, very young and very lonely over there first time out of home, and was invited to this party by a girl at my model block... It's like a boarding house for models." Alison explained as she and the English girl attended the party, "I'm sitting on the couch talking to her. When completely out of the blue these two other male models come rushing towards us, physically pick me up, shove me into the cupboard, which happened to kind of actually be in the middle of the party, and then proceeded to grope my breasts, my vagina. They were sticking their tongue down my throat or holding me, both of them were doing it." Alison remarked, she was fully clothed wearing a "long sleeve T-shirt" and a "pair of jeans," and the two men told her she deserved it because she was wearing them.

"It sounds so cliché because you hear it all the time, but I actually had the words said to me, 'You deserved it. Look at what you're wearing.'" Alison said, she was screaming and moving around and the music was loud outside the cupboard until a guy comes and he goes "Get off her!" and pulls the two guys off. She says, "I come out and I'm completely bewildered, completely in shock. Don't know anyone else in the room." The man asked her, "Do you want to get out of here?" And she said, "Yeah, yeah, I do. I just want to go home." "It was quite a long way home. We had to take a train and then we had to walk and so he was chatting to me and it was really lovely." Alison explained she believed the man was "delivering her safely" into her apartment before telling her he was going to "come in for a bit." "That was my mistake. So he came in and then proceeded to rape me," she said.

"He was actually a boxer, a professional boxer as well. So for a long time, I didn't actually think it was rape because I sort of just let it happen. I just didn't fight back because I'd already been in shock from what had happened and he kind of saved me so it was massively confusing experience of.., he saved me from a horrible situation and now he's delivered me home. How do I say no? And I was like, 'No, I don't want to I don't want to I don't want to', and then I just shut up. I didn't say anything. So I just packed it away, had that away, but under the bed had locked it. Just didn't revisit that for many, many, many years." The model added it affected her and she had "attempted to compartmentalise it." Alison who was an 'It girl' featured the covers of dozens of magazines during her successful modeling career. "I never wanted to come across as sexy. I changed the way I dressed. I became very much 'don't look men in the eyes', very much that way."

"I still struggle with that actually. So if I meet someone and I'm introduced, it's okay. But my eyes are down and I don't look because I don't want to invite something." She added that she didn't tell her husband Cameron Daddo until she was 28. Alison met Cameron when she was 20 and revealed it in therapy, "So eight years later, and yeah. So I talked about in therapy and then the two of us had very big cry together." The heartbreaking disclosure comes after Alison shared how going through menopause led to body insecurities. "A lot of the dislike of my body shape had to do with what I thought Cam wanted or what Cam liked. Once he told me he didn't give a crap if I put on weight and that he loved me as a person, the more I addressed my own judgement of myself." She and Cameron got married in 1991 and have three children together, daughters Lotus, 24, and Bodhi, 14, and a son, River, 20. The model added it took her "a long time" to tell her parents and that she only told the children after the book was written.
