Overview

Porn Again: A Memoir by Josh Sabarra

In PORN AGAIN: A MEMOIR, Josh Sabarra throws open the proverbial closet -- and bedroom --doors, taking readers on a Hollywood thrill-ride through growing up, coming out, coming of age and finally finding himself at 40. Despite being a high-level entertainment executive, Josh was still a virgin at 31. Uncomfortable in his own skin, haunted by painful childhood memories, he kept laser-focused on building an unparalleled career trajectory at the expense of his personal life.

Tormented by schoolmates for being "different," Josh clung to his aberrantly close relationships with a small circle of adult females. But, even with that support, the shame and contempt that grew from his sexuality locked him in a prison of self-hate that robbed him of an emotional and sexual identity for more than three decades. Movie studio jobs, through which he met celebrity idols, led to friendships and relationships with some of the industry's most notable characters. Those intimacies created a false sense of acceptance and approval, requiring that he continue to up the stakes - celebrity lovers, the crazy world of online dating, sexual fetishists and porn stars-for-hire.

The gay best friend you always wanted, Josh Sabarra delivers a whip-smart, poignant memoir set against a glittering backdrop that is at once heartbreaking, glamorous, sexy and hilariously honest.

Don't let the fabulous title fool you. PORN AGAIN is every bit soul-searchingly haunting and heartbreaking as it is raucous, provocative, steamy, and clever, hilariously laugh-out-loudable. Josh Sabarra is a masterful storyteller, who winks and nods, and then punches us in the gut. There is something for everyone who has ever been different- who has ever kept a painful secret or struggled with who they are, how they look, and finding approval. Not since reading Cheryl Strayed's WILD have I been so engrossed and rewarded by a memoir. Read this!!!!

I cant remember the last time I read a book that sparked every emotion I am capable of! I was laughing by page 6 and shortly after that, gasping in disbelief. I was sad, excited, happy, ashamed, uncomfortable and he even made me blush! lol This book is extremely well written and over and over, I couldn't help but think of how brave Josh Sabarra is to have written this book. He relived moments that I am sure he would rather forget and he did so with such grace and superb writing, that I felt every ounce of his pain. Every human being should read this book and anyone who thinks that being Gay is a choice, will change their mind once they finish it. God bless you Josh Sabarra. This could not have been an easy book to write. I'm glad it left me laughing. Keep writing. This was wonderful. KW

Fantastic mémoire! I laughed out loud, teared up, full on cried, blushed a little (OK, a LOT!) and simply couldn't put this book down! Straight or Gay, Hollywood or not, Josh has written this book for anyone who has ever struggled with fitting in or finding themselves. He's written an incredibly open, honest, sexy & sincerely funny book! This is a must read!

Honest, heartbreaking, and hilarious.  Josh Sabarra shares the most intimate aspects of his life - both emotionally and 
BPflughaupt More than 1 year ago
The title tells you he's a marketing exec - the book, however, is much more that the title suggests. In Porn Again, Josh Sabarra pulls all the veneers away that he carefully placed for 40 years in order to be accepted. What is revealed is a funny, smart, warm and wonderful man who has finally found himself among the glitz and glamour he thought he needed. Nice to meet you Josh - and I laughed and cried while reading this!

Seriously no holding back. I laughed, I cried, and I grew! What more can you ask for when someone bares their most intimate moments which shape a life!

This book is extremely relatable to anybody who was awkward growing up, reading this you feel like you go through Josh's awkward  phases (and I actually have gone through some myself). Josh's struggles are one we all go through, and he shows them in a very thought provoking and poignant way.  Doesn't matter if you're gay or not, everyone should give this a read... not to mention all the *ahem* naughty business that goes on, but overall a fantastic read, you'll fall in love with it immediately.
