Following the furore over her description of President Trumps genitals, more details are emerging from Stormy Daniels' tell-all autobiography, Full Disclosure.

Full Disclosure will be published on October 2 and it charts the adult film star's entire life from a difficult childhood in Louisiana to her career and her alleged affair with President Trump.

Stormy (39), whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, alleges the affair began in 2006 and that she was paid $130,000 hush money as part of a non-disclosure agreement, signed before the 2016 election. 

Trump has denied ever having had an affair with the actress but admitted reimbursing his lawyer for a $130,000 hush-money payment to her shortly before the 2016 election.

Daniels said she wrote the book to tell the full story of the alleged affair and the court case as she felt she had not had the opportunity to properly address them in interviews.

“Everybody knows that a lot of the ‘60 Minutes’ [interview] was cut down for time and there are things that I said in my interview that I really wanted people to know that are very important to me that I didn’t get to say,” Daniels recently told The View.

Among the details emerging from the book are the aforementioned description of Trump's genitals as well as the revelation that Stormy was raped repeatedly for two years from when she was just nine years old by a man in his 40s.

Here are the 5 biggest allegations and revelations from the book that have emerged so far:

Trump's allegedly 'unusual' penis

While the book spans Daniels' entire life from childhood through her career in the adult film industry, it is her salacious description of President Trump's genitals which has so far caused the biggest stir.

The word 'toadstool' is mentioned and she also makes reference to "the mushroom character in Mario Kart".  Her lawyer Michael Avenatti told CNN that she went into such "graphic detail because she remains frustrated as to those who still question whether she is telling the truth".

Trump allegedly took a call from Hilary Clinton while they were together

CNN reports that Daniels alleges that she and Trump were in a hotel together watching TV and discussing The Apprentice when Trump received a phone call from Hillary Clinton, who was running against Barack Obama in the race to be the Democratic presidential nominee.  She claims that after he hung up he said, "I love her" and described her as "so smart".

Trump allegedly offered to help Stormy appear on The Apprentice

She claims Trump repeatedly called her over the course of a year promising to put her on The Apprentice.  She quotes him as saying, "We'll figure out a way to get you the challenges beforehand".

She had a difficult childhood and was sexually abused

The Guardian reports Stormy as writing that was abused by a man in his 40s over a period of two years from when she was just nine.  It began because she intervened when her friend was being abused by the same man.  "I was nine," she writes.  "I was a child, and then I wasn't."

When she first disclosed the abuse to an adult, she was not believed.  The abuse happened within the context of a difficult home life.  Her mother, she says, fell apart after her father left, and and their home was plagued by insects and rats.

"When I was about eight, my mom started disappearing for days at a time, probably with one of the guys she was dating. There would be no food." she writes.

She began stripping in high school

Her career began in high school when she started stripping before later progressing to adult films.  She introduced her husband to the business by casting him in scenes with her.  He filed for divorce earlier this year.
