In reading this i have mixed feelings. There are a lot of things Ron does not address,such as the emotional toll the porn business takes on family members or in relationships or the devastating effects the swingers' lifestyle has on families which i have seen friends experience in that lifestyle. Broken marriages, abused children, and much,much more. He also does not address the criminal undercurrent that accompanies porn and the swingers' lifestyle, such as blackmail and such. As much as pleasure as he has gotten, i got feeling he has suffered much abuse by people in the business and by 'friends'. It is quite surprising how much he has accomplished in areas outside of porn, such as music (pianist/violinist), education(Masters degree) and the martial arts(by the way,Ron-- what style of Kung Fu did you get a brown belt?). The reader might wonder why law enforcement was so after he and others in the business if it was as innocent as he makes it sounds. Ron does not address what backgrounds porn stars come from generally nor what has happened to many famous stars after they leave the business.It might be very interesting to find out what happened to such hot women (to me, anyway!!) as:Alyssa Jareau,Tiffany Minx,Lili Marlene, Nadia Nyce,Cumisha Amado,Seka,Ashley Shye,Leanna Fox,Tanya Fox,Mai Lin,Lee Carroll and many more! Do these people simply retire into obscurity? What happens to them? Ron also does not talk about how difficult it is for a man to break into heterosexual adult porn(this is where Jenna Jameson' book fills in the gaps) nor whether there was heavy gay/bisexual community pressure or intimidation or what happens if a women does become pregnant in the process of making a film? Still, this was a funny,entertaining read filled with a lot of information of interest to those who have enjoyed adult movies and for which the moral jury is still out. And how easy or difficult is it for porn stars to go legit and pursue a more conventional career, say in business? Is there a lot of non-industry discrimination?

This book gives a great deal of insight to what it takes to be in the porn start and what he did before breaking into the business of porn.

This book is just an honest look at one man's struggle to achieve a dream. While he may not be a huge mainstream star, he none the less regrets his life and lives it to what he considers its fullest...nothing wrong with that.
