Asa Akira (28) has already had an extremely unusual life. Educated at the United Nations International School in Manhattan, she soon was earning a good living by stripping and working as a dominatrix at a sex dungeon. Akira has now built up a reputation for being of the most popular, hardworking, and extreme actors in the business, winning dozens of awards for her 330+ movies, including her #1 bestselling series “Asa Akira Is Insatiable”.
In Insatiable, Akira recounts her extraordinary life in chapters that are hilarious, shocking, and touching. In a wry, conversational tone, she talks about her experiences shoplifting and doing drugs while in school, her relationship with other porn stars (she is married to one) and with the industry at large, and her beliefs about women and sexuality. Insatiable is filled with Akira’s unusual and often highly amusing anecdotes, including her visit to a New Hampshire sex shop run by a mother and son.
In a world where porn is increasingly becoming part of the mainstream, Akira is one of very few articulate voices writing from the inside. She something important, controversial, and astonishingly interesting to say about sex and its central role in our culture.

Loved it. Down to earth and at many point hilarious! Was skeptical about reading it because of the subject matter but I'm so glad I did. It pays to be open-minded
It's a page turner, and yes can be quite funny at points. A good look into an industry few of us know anything about beyond the final product. You must maintain an open mind, but if you can do that you'll enjoy it.
Great read from Asa's perspective. Loved the glimpse into her side of the world. So much respect for someone who isn't afraid to show their sexuality.
I thought the book will be a bit less about sex and more about the person she is. I know her life is based on sex, i was expecting a bit more out of it. Wish i could get my money back.
