Product Description

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)

“Jenna Jameson is an Icon.” (101 magazine)

“The woman who put the star in porn star.” (Rolling Stone)

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!

Firstly, what this book isn't, apart from a two page guide to how to er..fellate in such a manner as to draw maximum approbation from your fellatee, is a 'how to' guide, but the autobiography of the world's most famous porn star. I was intrigued as to how she got where she is today and why she does it and this book does at least tell you that. Given the salacious content it's weirdly compelling in its way, but I do think both the book and its subject are deeply flawed.
The book jumps around all over the place, has too many uninteresting pictures of Jenna (all of them showing her massively overdressed by her standards) and, more seriously, contains loads of chapters devoted to conversations between her and her brother and father, which are uniformly dull and should have been cut. In fact the book could usefully be cut by about 50%, which would then have made for a much more uniformly riveting read.
Jenna has had to overcome some pretty bad things, the loss of her mother from cancer, a dysfunctional family and being raped at least twice.
However, there are clearly a number of character faults that make her an ultimately unlikeable subject, including
1. Her willingness to sleep with whoever she wants to whenever she feels like it even when a relationship with someone else, but woe betide that someone else should they do likewise. I didn't expect her to have the morals of a methodist and a woman has as much right to go out and have sex as as any man, but there is a lot of hypocrisy here.
2. Diva-ish behaviour on and off set
3. Long spells out of control on a variety of drugs. After the second times waking up/coming to to find someone having sex with her (and not being too upset about this in either case) I found it increasingly difficult to sympathize with her.

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.Read more ›

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!

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!
