Product Description


Move over Jenna here comes Ron, the most popular male porn star of all time. This work appeals to readers of tell-all's like Jenna Jameson and Motley Crue. It also presents reviews in adult magazines eg "Men Only", and "Fiesta". Ron Jeremy is the porn industry's 'everyman'. Blessed with a large member and average looks, he's starred in over 1700 films, directed 250 of them, and over the last 20 years's has become porn's biggest ambassador into the mainstream. He has appeared in 60 mainstream films, was a consultant on "Boogie Nights" and "9 1/2 Weeks", has appeared in 14 music videos, was on the WB's "Surreal Life", starred in the critically acclaimed "Pornstar" (a movie about his life), and "Being Ron Jeremy" (a take-off on "Being John Malkovich", co-starring Andy Dick). And that's just the tip of the iceberg, he has stories on every major Hollywood celebrity, his mother was a spy during WWII (strange but true...), he travels relentlessly to trade shows around the world, and if you want to know where all the bodies are buried, he's the guy that can not only show you the grave, but can tell you the back story on the tombstone. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Ron J is a porn star. Famous for being hairy and (of course) well-built in the tackle dept. And not a pretty geezer, although arguably, he was when he was a young 'un. Jeremy is, by his own account, extremly talented - he says he's a classical musician (and provides scant evidence) registered childcarer (for which there is) and intellect (judge for yourself). This book is a mixture of very interesting stories about the adult entertainment industry, nice anecdotes about his interesting life, and yet it ultimately dissolves into a series of namechecks of the famous and becomes a litany of minor mishaps and pratfalls for somebody wanting to break into the mainstream of acting who never succeeds.

Jeremy knows everybody but this seems due entirely to his curiosity status as a porn legend rather than his acting ability, and in the end, you both envy him for his wonderful freedom and liberty in his sex and social life and for his utter lack of fulfilment on any other level: it is apparent that having made it in porn early, he has absolutely no idea about conventional relationships at all. He is painfully and honourably honest about this which adds a twinge of pathos to the book.

Jeremy seems to think he has (third? Forth?) career as a stand-up comedian but never makes us laugh seriously (laugh seriously? I'm on good form today), although we do smile with and at him frequently. And through it all, you really do like and pity him in equal measure. He's trying to punch above the odds. He's had a good life. He's self-depreciating. He's not arrogant. He's a porn star who wanted more and grazed the surface. Basically he popularised porn as an icon. That is probably all he should have aimed for for happiness. At that level, Mr J is the best thing the industry ever produced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kinda strange 25 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Interesting but rather stange book, especially of you are not working in the Porn industry.
At times it seems rather unbelievable, so not sure if this is all true or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr softy 12 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked Ron when I've seen him on tv,always coming across with a good sense of humour.I always got the feeling he knew exactly where he sat in the business and was comfortable in this.His humour comes through out the book which was filled with laugh out loud moments.however the need to be seen as mainstream was a surprise and a theme though out his career.I've never seen a R J porno but he's the only porn star I know the name of so maybe Ron has reached that mainstream he searched for.A great read,highly enjoyable and Ron comes across as a good guy in a bad business.
