HOW TO MAKE LOVE LIKE A PORN STAR


A few weeks ago, after a long day at work, my husband walked into the kitchen and dropped his briefcase on the floor, his tired eyes zeroing in on the book lying oh so innocently on the counter. He looked at me. He looked back at the book. He looked at me again. “How to make love like a porn star?” he said, making a face like something smelled.

“Oh yeah,” I said, trying not to laugh as I stirred a pot of enchilada soup, which, I must inform you, smelled delish, because it was delish. “I’m going to make love to you like a porn star. All. Night. Long.”

He just looked at me. He looked back at the book. “Seriously, what is this?” he asked, flipping through the pages. Suddenly the pages stopped flipping and slowly a smile began to form on his face.

It was the same sly smile that had formed on my own face that very morning after I FINALLY found the courage to pick it up, walk it to the teenage cashier girl, and purchase the damn book already! HOW TO MAKE LOVE LIKE A PORN STAR by Jenna Jameson had caught my eye the moment I first saw it sitting seductively on the shelf over a year ago. Trust me when I tell you it’s worth the walk of shame to the cash register.

On the jumpseat, that’s where I wanted to read this book, but I didn’t dare pull it out of my tote bag for fear of what the crew and passengers might think, so I saved it for the privacy of my layover hotel room where I devoured it page by page, staying up much too late for a flight attendant with an early morning pick up. It’s an interesting book, but don’t let the title fool you. This is not a book full of crazy sex tips. Nor is it a Pretty Woman type of memoir. What it is, however, is a story about the trials and tribulations of one woman’s journey through the porno industry. It’s not always a pretty tale. But what I love about the book, besides the absolutely amazing photographs, is Jenna’s honesty. She’s real. She’s raw. She’s fierce. What more could you ask for from a porn star? And that’s not all. What I truly admire about this woman is the way she takes responsibility for the choices she’s made in her life. She is not a victim. Clearly she’s taken control of her life and has achieved exactly what she set out to do. As the most famous porn star in the industry, she’s living the life she always dreamed of. You go, girl!

(I love when passengers leave things behind! Especially books. Particularly Oprah books. )

  1. Have you heard of Las Ventanas in Cabo? If not..look it up. I went there for my birthday and read this book by the pool. I got MANY strange looks.
