“The book is an intimate look at what it's like to be Sasha Grey.”
Sasha Grey, born March 14, 1988, in Sacramento, California is an American actor, writer, photographer, adult film star, transgressive artist, and experimental musician. She moved to Los Angeles one month after she turned 18 to pursue a career as an adult film star. She entered the adult business to explore her sexual fantasies in a safe environment, to make more creative adult films (which she felt were severely lacking), and to encourage men and women to not be ashamed of their sexual desires. Since entering the adult industry in 2006, she has far surpassed the usual boundaries of adult film stardom, appearing in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience, and speaking at the prestigious BFI in London, Brandeis University, Yale University, and UCLA.
Grey was chosen as “Penthouse Pet of The Month” for July 2007, which was photographed by the fashion photographer Terry Richardson. Grey made the 2008 Rolling Stone magazine “Hot List,” and the May 2009 edition featured a profile piece on her. In January 2010, Grey appeared nude in an ad campaign for PETA advocating animal birth control. She recently hosted two one-off shows for G4, and has been featured in many magazines, including Vice, Blackbook, Flaunt, VMan, Love, The Inrockuptibles, Elle, GQ Germany, Blurt, Filmmaker, Playboy, and Rolling Stone.
