How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale is an easy to read autobiography of Jenna Jameson, who has become one of the biggest porn stars in America to date. It is not a manual on how to have sex or enter into the porn world as one might think while being pulled in by the over the edge title, but actually details the life of Jenna and explains how to she ended up where she is today. Throughout 600 pages of encounters, diary entries, movie scripts and comic panels the reader learns about the rough times Jenna endures beginning with being raised with a single father and brother and being a rebellious high schooler. Through ordeals with poor role models and manipulative men, she became an insecure and young girl who still craved attention and money, which kept her in the business and taught her the ropes of using her beauty and manipulation techniques to make thousands of dollars a night. A choppy and somewhat uncomfortable account of how she flew through the industry beginning as a stripper at the Crazy Horse in Las Vegas, moving into the magazine scene and starring in adult films by age 20 may be a little too graphic for some readers but if one can accept the fact that the stories are very detailed, it is worth reading and keeps the reader captivated. I am not one who is interested in porn or strip clubs and have never seen any of Jenna¿s actually work but learned a ton about her life and the world of the adult industry through this book. Although many may look down on Jenna Jameson, and the life she has led, including drug abuse and an uncountable amount of affairs with men and women she is completely candid in her autobiography and doesn¿t regret anything that has happened. She doesn¿t ask for sympathy or understanding but simply tells her story. The events in her life made her a stronger person enabling her to empower her readers as well.

Get rid of the 'F' word

removing the 'F'word would cut the length of this book in half. You could then get to the story rather than weeding through the profanity.
