Book Description

Jun 2003

“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.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

In the underbelly of Las Vegas, a cesspool of warring biker gangs and seedy strip clubs, gawky, brace-faced Jenna Massoli was transformed into the bombshell Jenna Jameson. Today, Jenna is the biggest star in the history of adult movies, consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful women alive. But behind the glamour and the meteoric rise to fame was a path paved with tragedy and heartbreak. As a teenager—drawn into a dark and chaotic world where rape, abuse, and murder were commonplace—Jenna began her rapid downward spiral of addiction and degradation . . . while at the same time becoming the porn world's biggest crossover success story.

Her intimate memoir, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star, is 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 deeply into Jenna's dark past. Mix in hilarious anecdotes, adrenaline-pumping triumphs, and photos from Jenna's private collection, and you have a tell-all autobiography unlike any other.

4.0 out of 5 stars Porn Princess 15 Sep 2004
Format:Hardcover
This book takes you into the mind of a fully fledged porn star. It is written thoughtfully and is not as shocking as i thought it would be, (although if your a prude, don't read because it WILL offend you!).
It tells of Jenna's childhood and what made her enter the seedy world of porn. After reading it, you end up actually feeling sorry for her.
Its a riveting read and i couldn't put it down.would definately recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking Past-Courageous Future 13 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Ms. Jameson has seen and done just about everything you could ever have imagined. What you find within the content of this book is powerful. From her abuvise situations, to her addictions, then in to the world of Porn-she is honest and forthright. The book spills over with her courage.
I would have to say "How To Make Love Like A Porn Star" is as highly rated as that of "Nightmares Echo by Katlyn Stewart", "Tracy Lords: Underneath It All" and "Paper Life by Tatum O'Neil"

4.0 out of 5 stars A Cautionary Tale 23 Jan 2005
By prisrob TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
Most people, I suspect, when they spy the title of Jenna Jameson's "How To Make Love Like A Porn Star" rarely see the next line of the title ":A Cautionary Tale". The glitz, the glamour, the women and men, and the sex are what they think porn is all about. The tawdry, abusive, dirty and sad side of life is the real world of porn.
Jenna Jameson aka Jenna Massoli was born in Las Vegas. Her mother was a Vegas showgirl and died a very painful death from cancer when Jenna was a small child. Her father never really recovered from his wife's death. He became a policeman and essentially left Jenna and her brother Jack to grow up by themselves. He was absent from much of their lives. They moved frequently and Jenna had a hectic life. Never really making friends and never having a loving relationship. In one small town in Montana she was gang raped and left for dead. Jenna reacted violently and injured a girl who had been abusive to her. The family left town - the same way they reacted with all problems; fleeing and never facing the problem head-on. Jenna drifted into one bad relationship after another and learned to make money with her body. At first she danced in a strip club and moved on to stripping and then on to porn stills and then porn movies.

Much of this book is about Jenna and her life in the porn business. She is quite open about the drugs and alcohol and life she led. In order to maintain a semblance of life she had affairs with men and women in the business. She tells us of her life and that of other female and male porn stars. At times she tries to glamorize the business by talking of the money, the clothes, the make-up, the travel, and all the people she met.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 29 Oct 2006
Format:Hardcover
I read this book when it first came out over a year ago and it is one of the best books I have ever read. Jenna has had an amazing yet unbelievably life, I found quite a lot of it shocking but very very honest. I was shocked to read about the things that have happened to her when she was younger, she has well and truly come out the other side.

I think to read this and enjoy it you have to forget she is such a famous porn star an just enjoy the book. It portrays her in a totally different light and makes you realise she is actually a person who has had one hell of a life and not just a porn star. I was also very sad to hear that she and Jay have split up now. Please read the book! You will not be disappointed!

I may be a bit hypocritical because I really like Jenna Jameson, but this book is worth every penny. Jenna goes into detail about every scenario she needed too to fully cover the ins and outs of becoming such a successful porn star. She is a beautiful woman who has had a very tough upbringing and life......which you will learn all about when you read the book!

3.0 out of 5 stars As dark as you'd expect 18 May 2013
Format:Paperback
A `cautionary tale' of the adult entertainment industry, as told by Jenna Jameson, one of its biggest stars (certainly at the time of publication in 2004 and probably still the same today). A sturdy book, at almost 600 pages, it's lavishly illustrated (which made for some interesting moments as I read it during my lunch break at work) and follows her life from birth to being on top of the world using prose, Q&A transcripts and the occasional comic panel. She is very candid and open, highlighting her bad childhood (losing her mother as a toddler, a dad, whose occupations don't seem to tally, who's never there but a loving brother who is), the poor choices and accidents of her teens (rape, abuse and addiction feature heavily) and the grit and grind of the porn industry. This is not a happy read, it's grim and unpleasant for a lot of the time though there are flashes of humour and good times and to her credit Jameson doesn't sugar-coat her own personality - she was obnoxious, she was a bitch and, quite often, she was the kind of needy, addicted,unconfident, easily swayed girl that she says the industry chews up and spits out. Having said that, it is good to see her keep going against the odds and it's a timely reminder that if the porn business looks glamorous on film (or the Internet), it is anything but for the performers themselves, who often lose out on normal life, loving relationships and a family life. As I mentioned before, the book is chock full of photographs - mostly black & white, from a variety of sources - childhood and family stuff, modelling, film covers, stripping days - but even though the cover says "Uncut and Uncensored", there is always a large X covering her bare groin whenever it appears in a picture.

I loved this book, it was so honest and gave a real insight to the industry. As many celebrity biographies it wasn't difficult to read, however contained serious issues at times.
