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.

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!

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"

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.

I brought this book on a whim mainly because it sounded like an interesting read. It most definitely was! An insight to a life which is very controversial. What I loved about it was how truthful & witty the book is and how much you can relate (to an extent) to Jenna. Some bits exciting, some bits sad and others heartbreaking.
I am very glad that I decided to buy this, and for those who label the porn industry and porn stars as trashy etc they should read this, as it really does give you a different opinion.
I could not put this down once I started reading it and made all of my friends read it (& they loved it!) Definitely recommend!

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!

It was a long read and Jenna does wonderful at depicting her life,the style and the business,however it was no fun and a very serious read,which went on too long and got weary,however she's a beautiful girl who knows her appeal and did well to get so far and write this memoir.

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!
