How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale Hardcover – Aug. 17 2004
“Captivating…a real person comes through in its page…Lively, hellacious, entertaining, sharp, feisty, and touching.” —Salon.com
How to Make Love Like a Porn Star, the mega-bestselling memoir, triumphant survival story, and cautionary tale that spent over six weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and rocketed adult film icon Jenna Jameson into the mainstream spotlight, is now in paperback for the very first time. Her unforgettable memoir is many things at once: a shocking sexual history; an insider’s guide to the secret workings of the billion-dollar adult-film industry; and a gripping thriller that probes deep into Jameson’s dark past. With never-before-seen photographs from Jenna’s private collection, exclusive photos taken for this book, and original cartoon strips, this memoir is an unparalleled exploration of sexual freedom.

“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

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Instead, we get the tale of a life with all the ups and downs and some heartbreaking moments along the way.
The author is pulling no punches when it comes to facing her demons and that makes for a rewarding read where you really root for her to pull through.
If you buy this for sex stories and other juicy details, you'll be disappointed. Everyone else will hopefully enjoy the story of one tough and resilient lady who tells it like it is with a great sense of humour and self-realization.

Nothing too revealing, but enough to show the brain of a very smart business woman who made the best of what she had. Interesting read.
