Product description

From Publishers Weekly

With its wit (the book is dedicated to Onan), its victim narrative (multiple sexual assaults), its celebrity dish (Howard Stern is actually well endowed), and its frank, one-fisted prose style ("After three hours of sweaty, psychotic sex, she handed me a huge black strap-on"), the queen of porn's autobiography is destined to become a lowbrow classic. 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. Jameson's life wasn't so much a downward spiral as a freefall into darkness. 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, all while leaving a path of carnage worthy of several rock bands. Beneath Jameson's monstrous diva exterior, however, was a girl who just wanted to become a loving mother and wife. After many failures, she finally succeeded, and her X-rated book ends on an uplifting family-values note. Jameson's life was a mess, and with its multiple formats (interview transcripts, movie scripts, advice sidebars, diary entries, cartoon strips), so is this book. But it's a remarkably appealing and honest mess, and should earn Jameson some of the mainstream acceptance she so clearly desires. Photos.

Review

“Fascinating.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“In this book, Jameson gets you rooting for her. . . . Captivating . . . a real person comes through in its page. . . . Lively, hellacious, entertaining, sharp, feisty, and touching enough to earn Jameson the right to wear the ‘Heart Breaker’ tattoo on her right butt cheek.” (Salon.com)

“Thespian talent notwithstanding, an adult movie performer’s greatest asset is stamina; and by that measure Jenna Jameson the author deserves accolades. She is tireless. . . . Jenna Jameson aims high . . . for aspiring performers, it’s a gold mine.” (New York Times Book Review)

“With its wit…its celebrity dish…and its frank, one-fisted prose style…the queen of porn’s autobiography is destined to become a lowbrow classic. Remarkably appealing and honest…should earn Jameson some of the mainstream acceptance she so clearly desires.” (Publishers Weekly)

“It will undoubtedly move her into the mass market even further.” (Wall Street Journal)

“As you’d expect, it’s chock full of oh-my-God tidbits.” (Newsweek)

“G-stringed Horatio Alger story.” (New York Times)

“Wow!” (Esquire)

Fashion-magazine-quality color photographs…So far How to Make Love Like a Porn Star has received more favorable notices than just about any prescriptive book — on sex or any other topic.” (New York Post)

“Racy” (Star)

“Jenna Jameson is the biggest adult film star in the world. . . . She’s a legend in her own time.” (Playboy)
