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

When the stewardess brought me off the plane in a wheelchair, I lowered my head. I was too scared to even look at my father. I didn't want to see the disappointment and horror on his face. All that hate I had accumulated for him over the years, all the resentment against him for not understanding what I was going through, just released with the tears.

"So, where are your parents?" the stewardess asked me after a few minutes. "I can't wait here with you much longer."

I looked up and wiped my eyes. My father was standing ten feet away. He didn't even recognize me.

In the underbelly of Las Vegas, a cesspool of warring biker gangs and seedy strip clubs transformed the gawky, brace-faced Jenna Massoli into the bombshell Jenna Jameson. Today, Jenna Jameson 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 chaotic world ruled by rape, abuse, and murder, Jenna plunged into a downward spiral of addiction, even as she became one of the most photographed women in adult magazines.

Determined to overcome this past, Jenna rebounded in the adult-film business, where she encountered sadistic directors, experienced lovers of both sexes, amorous celebrities (from Howard Stern to Marilyn Manson to Tommy Lee), bitter rival starlets, and finally, glory, as she went on to become the biggest porn star the world has ever seen. But her struggle for happiness did not end when the accolades began. For years she wrestled with her resentment at her estranged father, the loneliness of growing up from the age of two without a mother, and her enduring childhood desire to find a man who could give her the security and love she never had.

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 Jenna's dark past. An unparalleled exploration of sexual freedom, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star ventures far beyond the flesh, into the heart-shredding tragedies and adrenaline-pumping triumphs of a woman who has already lived a hundred lifetimes. Always witty and humorous even as she faces the demons of her past, Jenna offers hilarious anecdotes about one of the most controversial businesses in history, and shares outrageous advice, including her ten commandments of dating and sex, how to become a "suitcase pimp," and how to make it in the business as a female (or a male).

Add to this never-before-seen photographs from Jenna's private collection and others taken exclusively for this book, and the result is certain to be one of the most talked-about books of the year.

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 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!
