Oh come on and lighten up! This was a fun read.Yes, the business has a sordid reputation and Chi Chi does not really hold much back. Yes, he has a very good opinion of himself but why not? I think it was a nice companion to all that I have read about the industry. I've seen Chi Chi perform as well, and if you get a chance to catch her act on the road you won't be disappointed. Buy the book and you won't be disappointed either! I have friends in the industry and they seem to back up that this book is pretty acurate of what it is like to work for Chi Chi. It's a great book! Completely fun for fans and even people who don't particularly like porn (though I doubt you would even be on this page or reading this comment if you were not into porn!).

Follow Chi Chi and find out the inside information: In porn films, what's the best way to shoot an orgy scene? How does big new talent get discovered? Which actors consistently deliver the best "money shots"? What really goes on behind the scenes during a movie shoot? And just exactly how did a full-figure drag queen become one of the most well-known directors in the business? Making It Big tells the classic American rags-to-riches story - with a twist. Larry Paciotti, a young lad from Minnesota traveled to California to become a part of the world he loved with all his heart: gay porn. In record time he made it big, transforming the industry with his polished, steamy movies and transforming himself into the irresistible Chi Chi LaRue. Now, for the first time, he's dishing the dirt, telling true stories that no one will want to fast-forward through. When he makes it big, there's no stopping the irresistible Chi Chi LaRue.

Okay, so our lifestyle is quite colorful. I'm insulted that people are so negative. I am in the industry and know that things in her book are quite as they are. She has chosen to market in an area that people generally find an opinion out of ignorance and have know idea what the hell they are talking about. Live and let Live!

Mr. Larue obviously thinks of himself as a world-famous superstar, but I doubt anyone outside the porn industry knows who he is. This book, at its best, reads like pitiful self-aggrandizement at the expense of the sacrificial, however willing they are, figures of porn, who last only briefly while directors go in search of new bodies. Mr. Larue is pictured laughing. Probably at whoever published this book.
