Book ~ "How to Make Love Like a Porn Star" (2004) Jenna Jameson

From Amazon.com ~ Jameson's career began at 16, when she fell for Jack, a tattoo artist. At a party, Jack's neo-Nazi uncle raped Jameson. Unable to face her father, a Las Vegas cop, she moved in with Jack. Within a year, she went from high school cheerleader to stripper to nude model to porn actress, with a stop along the way to become a crack addict. But, as the porn world would have it, the harder she fell, the more everyone wanted her, and she quickly became a top nude model and porn star, and the country's highest-paid feature dancer.

This is the latest book that our neighbourhood book club is reading. It's the biography of porn star, Jenna Jameson. To be honest, I'd never heard of her (still haven't though I've IMDBed her and she's done a ton of movies).

It was an interesting read - discovering how she became one of the most famous porn stars. If you are looking for a light read (but a heavy book - there are lots of pix of her) and enjoy learning about others, you'll enjoy it. Warning: the language is quite colourful and descriptive.

There is quite a variety of books read in our club. Everyone gets a turn to pick a book. We've read stuff by James Joyce, Lance Armstrong, Janet Evanovich, Nino Ricci, Alastair McLeod and many more.
